I fielded a Q about this and thought I’d start a thread so those of us heading to Cleveland in August can touch base and coordinate (hotel block, pre-race dinner, group pic in DCTC gear on site).
I’ll be there racing both days staying in a house with a few other clubbers. I’m definitely game for a group dinner (Thurs or Fri nights). Be sure to bring your gear for a photo op after bike racking Friday!
Also, if you haven’t, please go to the “upcoming races” section on the web (under Races) and “attend” the race (and all the other races you’re doing this season) so I can be sure to give you your well-deserved shout out in the weekly newsletter.
Signed-up for Nationals but just the Olympic on Saturday. Will be driving to Cleveland on either late Thursday or early Friday and returning on Sunday. Would be willing to share the drive and hotel accommodation in Cleveland.
LMK if you r interested.
Also planning on group pic and dinner Friday night.
The Club tent is making the trip with us, so look for it. We will try to set it up near transition/run course on the grass. We do not have an event coordinator so bring your own chair/snacks/drinks, etc. All racers and spectators are welcomed. Come keep me company on Saturday while I wait for my late wave start!
