Indeed, this is a huge mess that I'm trying to deal with. Speaking of, did anyone see the announcement for an (assistant) Race Director on the forum?! Hint, hint, nudge, nudge...
I pinged the officers and am hoping to get a consensus. Any refunds/transfers would not be exclusive to NTPers.
Once I hear back, I'll send an email to all registrants today, hopefully soon.
Also, as I posted on BUZZ, we went from having 16 volunteers to 4. If anyone can now come help, that'd be great as well as giving Jon E a ride down, see his post above. We need all the hands we can get.
More coming soon!
Although I heard about the change in dates by word of mouth, I would recommend updating the Facebook page or an email out to the club in case more people are able to do it.
Jon- Meghan can't make it on Sunday so I can give you a ride. Shoot me an email to coordinate ferguson 01 at me dot com
with the news about columbia, are we at risk that the swim will have to get cancelled for sunday's training tri race as well?
It's like predicting weather, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. Nothing is guaranteed. I'm in contact with our swimming partner who is in contact with people at Blue Plains, study the Potomac and take water quality seriously. I'll get an update later today but cross your fingers, the swim will be on for tomorrow.
Fingers, toes, legs etc...all crossed! ;)
Thanks for all your hard work on this Adam, the training tris are certaiy not proving an easy task this year.
Can we still sign up there? The swim for Columbia got canceled.
Any updates? Should we plan on it going ahead unless we hear from you? The Potomac in DC is looking full of debris and is moving very fast.
Amanda, you and everybody registered should of gotten my email I sent at 707pm today.
Lmk if you didn't get it.
In short, the swim is on. Water may not look good but the river has had just enough time to flush itself.
Race details to be emailed once I get to a computer.
See you all tomorrow!
When we take a big gulp of brown water we'll just pretend it's chocolate milk! Thanks for all your hard work,
I could not do this on Saturday but now that is Sunday could I register on site?
If you want to race tomorrow, email me at email@example.com

Thanks to Adam, the DC Tri Team and volunteers for a great race this morning!
Agreed. Thank you so much!!!!
Thanks again Adam and all of the volunteers! Great experience all around. Had a blast!
Thanks again for organizing. As an NTPer, this was my first tri and I was glad to have the safe and friendly environment to attempt it! Now if you can make the waves go away next time, that would be great. ;)
Does anyone have, or know where to find, photos from the race on Sunday?
I believe Gabby (sp?) was the "official" race photographer as she had a really nice camera. Not sure where she plans to post the pictures though...
I don't find a forum for Training Tri #2 ... even though I just signed up for it.
I need a ride!
