In as well. Abby, thanks for sorting out the logistics! FYI, I called today and the reservation lady said they are out of rooms with two beds at the Richmond Multisport Rate but still have rooms with one king bed available at the same rate.

We will have 8 rooms with a special DC Tri code that are rooms with 2 beds; as soon as I know what that code is I will share it here. If those fill up, I will have the negotiation power to ask for more rooms, so please use that code when you reserve.

All the rooms at HGI have refrigerators and microwaves; if people want a full breakfast, I've asked that they open breakfast early, and they said they could start at 5:30.

Also: some other logistics and fun things:

I'm working on a a team dinner at Bottom's Up at 6 PM on Saturday. It will likely be an all you can eat pizza/pasta/salad thing. Fun.

Packet pickup is currently scheduled to close at 3:00 PM, and I'm working with the RD to extend that until 5:00. If that doesn't work out, I might ask her to bring all DC Tri packets to the HGI.

Stay tuned!

Let's win this thing!!

You can still get a room with two Queen size beds for $139. About a dozen left as of 7 pm, June 22. They say there are many more rooms with single King size beds, for $130; maybe you can ask them if they can put a cot in if you want to share rooms. Thank you, singer Abby Antebellum, for the info. :)

Hey all! We are going to be under contract to fill 10 rooms, so if you can hold your fingers for just a couple more hours on making reservations, that would be fantastic. I will post the instructions as soon as I have them.

There will be queen-queen and single king rooms available.

Thank you!

Abby

Hey y'all, I am a brand new member of DC Tri and I am thinking I would like to do this race. I realize no one knows me yet but I would definitely need to split a hotel room and possibly carpool down if anyone is interested. Such is the life of a grad student I guess! I look forward to meeting y'all!

I have a room with 2 queen beds booked at the $99 rate, but my original roommate has had to bail. So bed is available if anyone wants to email me. Alternatively, if you booked at the higher rate and want to cancel your reservation and take this bed instead, that would work too.

Also looking to carpool, leaving from Arlington. I can drive and can fit two additional people/bikes, or could hitch a ride with someone. Thanks,

Sean

Sean,

I'll take the extra bed if no one else has claimed it. My email is ben@winterroth.com and my phone is 646-226-5800 if you want to call and arrange things ahead of time. Thanks!

Finally!

Here is our group code for the Hilton Garden Inn:

DC3

you can make a reservation either online or by calling 1-804-344-4300.

http://hiltongardeninn.hilton.com/en/gi/hotels/index.jhtml?ctyhocn=RICDTGI

After you reserve, can you post here and let me know? We are likely to sell out what they have allotted to us, and I want negotiating power to reserve more rooms.

Also, if you're willing to share, I'm sure there are folks who will be looking for space.

Details on pre-race dinner coming soon!

Cheers,

Abby

Thanks, Abby. Giving the hotel the code dropped my cost from $139 to $99.

It's not too late! We have just added the team dinner to the shop, and you can call to make a hotel reservation through July 15.

Here is the link to the dinner in the shop:
http://www.dctriclub.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Shop.welcome&CFID=16493276&CFTOKEN=93481395

Note that the dinner includes pizza AND pasta for wheat-eaters. There will be gluten-free pizza for the wheat-intolerant (like me). Veggie and meaty options.

Just booked my room. Not sure if I got the last one but the only thing left was a queen/queen/ access room (which is fine since it has an extra sofa bed for one of my kids)
