World Indoor Champs 17/18 Feb - who is going/hotel

Postby Alastair » January 10th, 2018, 4:31 pm

Hi all,

I've been out of the C2 forum for many years... but decided it was time to come back! Been busy having a break and then for the last five years have been sculling.

I've entered the World Champs in Washington and am wondering who is going and what hotels you might be staying at?

I am about to book flights, it's getting serious!

Thanks in advance,
Alastair

The missus and I are staying at the Crown Plaza as apparently it's the ''nominated'' hotel by the organisers and will have a room set up with plenty of ergs so that we can all train and prepare for our races.

See you there.

What race are you in?

I'm in the 60-64 Lightweights and the wife (Carol Woodward...she doesn't use my surname) is in the 55-59 Lightweights.

I've been pondering the same question. Hoping to find some 'frugal' (not cheap, frugal) way to travel and get lodging. :mrgreen:

If anyone in that area has a spare bedroom and a willingness to swap hosting me in return for me hosting them for a Boston area event (I live about 45 minutes north of Boston and have hosted Brits for CRASH-Bs in the past) I'd be game. Other than that I may have to trade some of my retirement nest egg for a room at the Crowne Plaza.

I hope to strike fear into the hearts of the other 70-74 lwts, if they don't strike fear into my heart first.
