Pine Flat Roll Call & Accomodations

Anyone going? I reserved some extra rooms right at the lake for Saturday night that are perfect. Let me know if anyone wants one. I thought more people from my team would be going, and I still have 3 left.

Why did VoS, UCLA, and Pine Flat all have to be the same weekend this year.

I'm registered through San Dimas as a 4, planning up upgrading after that. Also my 30th birthday, so it should be a nice present

1 more room taken, 2 left.

This place is perfect for the race... doesn't get any better unless you like to camp.

I'm really looking forward to it. Last year with English it wasn't even really a race. And I stupidly toasted myself right before the climb started. This year should go much better, and I have a teammate who will work for me; last year I was trying to support Chester.

I'm not going. I am sick, again, and even when I wasn't I just have not been feeling all that fast.
Good luck! You should do well.

Thanks

Just got confirmation that another person only needed 1 room (he was considering 2), so if dolophonic wants one there is 1 left.

I got crashed out of the 5's race last year when i was second wheel, first wheel just decided to hit the desk on a straight, flat, dry and fairly slow section. Bike was messed up enough that I had to get in the sag wagon. On the way back to the finish we came across a bad crash in the womens race, i think they called an ambulance for that one.
