I've sent in my upgrade request online two weeks ago today and I my request is still "open". It's just a Cat5 to Cat4 upgrade, but I am signed up for an omni this weekend in Cat4. I've emailed the person in charge of upgrades but nothing. So, now I'm trying to get in the Cat5 for the omni by emailing the race director, but who knows if that will work.
So, I might be out $60 plus not being there for my share of the hotel bill plus any pay-outs I may get/have gotten.
