Word is USAT-MA will offiially make an annoucment within two days. I promise that information will be on the club's website on Thursday ..don't kill the messenger.
So two more days of brutally massacred kittens! Have they no heart?
Machine Gun Cat is due back Sunday from the shattered lands of Atlantis already vowing gruesome vengeance on kitten defilers. His fury shall know no equal.
A brief video was smuggled out of Mordor recently,
Mordor Wolf Slayer
Day 6: Battlecat
Won the battle but lost the war. No match for the Havoc Staff of Skeletor.
Just got the following email from CGI, apparently the club race will be NorthEast.
Too bad USATMA didn't send out the information.
North East Triathlon - The 2009 USAT-MA CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP. And to celebrate and get all you tri clubs on board we will not be increasing the race entry fee for another month. So register now ~ this race will be bigger and better than ever!
Link to register:
And duh, register as DC Tri.
The kittens are safe! Hooray! :)
One week before Timberman? Boo.
Yeah, sorry Timberman and Luray people.
Some of the other choices were not great timing either, but someone else can speak to that.
Thank goodness - I was afraid my little guy was next...
At least it is in a beautiful location!
Danm.. and I was going to have Zena come over and get the annoting cat around my apartment. Well I am registered and ready to have some fun.
So I just got an email from USAT Mid Atlantic and it didn't mention anything about the Club Championship. Have they really picked NorthEast? If so, why wasn't it in their newletter? Mark, that cat in your apartment might get it yet....
Glad it's NE. Remember how much fun we had there a few years ago? Sharing rooms, dinner, paying toll bridges, volunteering. Grand time in a beautiful setting.
There's still nothing posted on either CGI's or USAT-MA's web sites about this. :-/ Are we positive it's NE?
dumb question, but isn't there someone at USAT we can ASK??
Yes, it's North East Tri.
Here is the email that I got from Andrew Southerling, the "At-large Representative & Club Coordinator" for USAT-MA:
"OK. Sorry about that. I know Joe Coyne and your club well.
Club race this year is North East Tri hosted by CGI racing and Lin-Mark. We held the race there two years ago. DC won the event (as is custom now!).
We really tried to locate the race in the southern part of our region. But with scoring issues (timers not equipped to handle the scoring protocol) and the lack of races later in the season with availability, our best proposal came from CGI.
See you at the race.
In addition, if you're getting race updates from CGI, they sent out an email last Wednesday announcing that North East Tri is the USAT-MA Club Championship and that in honor of that, they're not raising the price of the race yet. So it's still $99.00.
My dumb a$$ is signed up for it. Oly style. And yes, the day before, I'm doing Luray Oly. It's up to you Andy... I need someone else to suffer with me. :)
Sorry, to specify:
The cost is still $99.00 for the Oly. It's less for the Sprint and more for the Relay. The costs should still be whatever they were before the mentioned April 1st price hike.
I registered for the race after April 1st and still paid the early registration price.
As Brian mentioned it is North East. Andrew is the head of the selection committee for the club championship and I have also heard from others on the committee.
