Nautica NYC Triathlon Lottery: Sunday, August 7th, 2011
Just a friendly Reminder from Team Scrappy so you don't miss out on Nautica NYC on August 7th, 2011. Followed by an angry tirade about terrible state of big city race registration today.
This kind of thing makes me NUTS. As if triathlon training weren't time consuming enough, you now have to stay up till MIDNIGHT (gasp) to get in a virtual line and wait for your chance to enter a LOTTERY to win a chance to BUY A RACE SPOT???!!!!! What do they think they are dealing here people? Season tickets behind home plate at Fenway? Sweet merciful crap.
To add insult to injury, they opened up NYC registration for all annual USAT members on October 28th. But, stupid old me misread the invite (sent moments before midnight on October 27th) and thought that 12:01 OCTOBER 28th meant midnight on the 28th, not the first freaking minute of Thursday, October 28th.
Oh well, you live and you learn.
For an even angrier tirade about tri registration, here's a great video on the new (and recently recalled) IRONMAN ACCESS registration program. ARE THE REGISTRATION FORMS PRINTED ON UNICORN SKIN????
