This will be an on-going process which will take 4 to 5 days to totally close out. Please be patient. Confirmed entrant's names will be posted on the event's on-line Entrant's List. Do not forget, everyone has 48 hours in which to go on-line and enter. After that time frame, they are deactivated,
and replacement names will be selected. This is a timely process.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get that email to sign up. I need this race since I'm avoiding IMs all together next year.
Me too....keeping fingers crossed. It is the first time I put my hat in for this.
Keeping my fingers crossed!!!
Update as of 9 am this morning is that name selection is still ongoing. I still haven't heard, but still hoping!
In! Got the email yesterday. I am excited but I have to admit I choked a little at the registration fee.
I am sure he will have some comment....go ahead bring it.
Still no luck! Maybe I shouldn't hold my breath until I get that email.
I don't need to enter the lottery to get a slot. The CIA would be more than happy to hook me up with a free slot.
Tuan - I thought you were banned from Sandy Point. Plus, you're not allowed to use those floaties that the kids put on their arms in the pool.
I emailed the race director last night to confirm my name was still on the pending list. Linda replied:
"Hi, yes confirmed on the lottery list, still pending. We are going to do another round next Tues. Hang in there! It all depends how many respond to the batch I did this
morning. All the others from last week, who did not respond have been "deselected" from the ability to now enter."
This morning when I looked at the entrants list there were still about 125 spots (assuming they stick with the 700 limit). I hope you guys get in...the more the merrier!
