Northeast Olympic Triathlon is the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Club Championship Race, August 24th. Pssst... Register now!
Northeast, MD is a 1 hr 45 min drive from DC.
Similarly to Jamestown Triathlon last year (2013 USAT-MA Club championship race) come join your fellow club members in a camping/training weekend exploring the course by camping out down the road at Elk Neck State Park.
When you ask?
As usual, we try to please as many members as we can so we're asking which date works best for you?
a) June 6-8
b) June 20-22
Activities include, open water swimming (different area than the race), biking and running the Northeast Tri course, camping, BBQ'ing, lounging on the beach, having fun, etc! (All activities optional except having fun.)
Amanda Melillo has stepped up to lead this event but could use some help.
So, please reply to this forum thread as to which weekend works better for you. Once we have some responses, the club will book and pay for your campsites for Friday and Sat nights. (If tent camping isn't your thing, there are cabins in the park and nearby hotels.)
Feel free to ask any questions below too.
(Last year's Williamsburg area training weekend was a lot of fun.)
June 20-22nd would probably seem to be better. The 6-8th is the same weekend as Eagleman and is one week after the NTP goal race.
I had a lot of fun at the Williamsburg training weekend too, and I missed out on the first half!
Any other votes for one weekend over the other out there? Right now, either one works for me.
My vote is for June 20-22 so as to avoid Eagleman and maximize the chance for club members to participate in the camping/training weekend.
June 20-22 is one week before Chicago ITU. I vote for the weekend of June 6-8.
I vote June 6-8 also, as TriRock Philly is June 21!
I have nothing to conflict with either weekend at this point, but I think I'll side with Angela in voting for June 22-23
I vote 6-8...obviously for selfish/race schedule reasons (Syracuse 70.3, June 22nd).
June 22! Because I'll be at Eagleman! Also I think we would get more ntp'ers out if its not a weekend after their goal race that they have to travel and spend the weekend at to as well.
June 20 - 22 would be best.
Thanks to all that posted so far. Keep in mind that you don't need to commit to the trip if your preference wins. Hopefully, many of you will go either way!
looks like the tally as of now is...
a) June 6-8 has 4 votes
b) June 20-22 has 4 votes
Let's try and get some more votes and choose by the end of this week so we can reserve the campsites for y'all!
Voting for 20-22 June!
Voting for June 20-22
I'm doing Philly, but would love to do this as well, so I vote for the earlier weekend (June 6)
(is there a reason the weekend in between isn't an option? June 14-15)
Keep the votes coming!
a) June 6-8 has 5 votes
b) June 20-22 has 7 votes
We'll close the voting end of this weekend.
Reason it won't be June 14-15 is b/c we're going to have 1 of our training tri's at Gunston Manor that Sat. 2014 Club Race schedule will be released very soon!
Putting my vote in (and on behalf of the NTPers :)) for June 20-22.
June 6-8 is the weekend after our goal race and also the weekend of our post race party.
that means June 20-22 just got 201 votes!
LOL!! I think we have a winner ;)
Looks like we have a date set for this cool camping/training weekend at Elk Neck State park... June 20-22!!
