Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!

Any chance we can do a group packet pickup at dinner? I won't be there before they close at 3pm Saturday. I know we can request special pickup Sunday morning before the race, but had a heard a rumor that the club might have our own packet pickup.

I've been in contact (to the point of annoyance, I'm sure) with the race directors regarding this issue. I've offered to pick up all the DC Tri packets and bring them to dinner and our hotel, but as of yet, no final decision has been made.

Currently, you can *ONLY* do race day pick up with pre-approval of the race director, and they are only allowing a half hour from 6-6:30 AM for this on Sunday. This would be super stressful for everyone (both athletes and staff), so I'm hoping we can come up with something that will work for everyone.

Hang tight! I hope to have a solution soon.

Please note: bike racking is ON RACE DAY, not the day before.

Cheers,

Abby

Abby, I contacted the RD about allowing someone else to pick up my packet and she said that USAT rules prohibit anyone to pick up another person's packet. I did request a race day pick up just in case I don't get down there by 3pm (which is very early - I think).

Thanks, Hugh.

The RD has graciously agreed to keep packet pickup open until **4 PM.**

If you cannot make it by 4 PM, you MUST arrange for race day pickup. Race day pickup will be from 5:30-6:00am only and must be pre-approved by emailing 411@richmondmultisports.com.

Thanks!

Abby

If anyone is still looking to register, you can get a discounted entry through me. (Just one person though!)

Is anybody interested in sharing a room at the Hilton? I promise I don't snore.

I'm also happy to offer a ride if anyone needs one.

Do we still get points if someone races the Aquathlon? I'm thinking about switching from the Oly, to this, but want to make sure I would still receive points for the club.

Tania.

Unfortunately, neither the aquabike nor aquathon scores points at regionals (but they do at nationals). Points are only awarded for the Individual Olympic Distance Triathlon.

I don't want to discourage anyone from racing the other events, or make people who are duathletes or aquathletes feel like the aren't part of the team!!

When they call our name for first place, everyone gets to go up to accept the plaque. :)

Hey Carl! There is a carpool thread here:

http://dctriclub.org/forum/messages.cfm?tid=192705EE-AB6C-416B-D2EEB7C6A7CB7485

I think there are 1 or 2 posts already.

So I was going to share a room with someone who tried to book yesterday and apparently the discount is no longer available. I thought it was open until tomorrow. Has anyone had the same experience or know what the deal is? Thanks!

Thanks for posting this. I will follow up. We may have maxed out our room allotment, in which case I will attempt to negotiate for more.

Hey all--

I spoke with our rep at the HGI in Richmond, and he is investigating the room situation. We have 11 (out of 10!) booked, which is why they said the rate was no longer available. As soon as I know if there are additional rooms, I will post again.

Thanks,
Abby

Does anyone have a hotel room that they're looking to split? If so, let me know! I'll be coming into town Saturday afternoon, and leaving early afternoon on Sunday.
