      Hey everyone!

      We have quite a big group of Caltri peeps going up to Big bear triathlon June 24th. What is everyone’s plans as far as accommodations goes? How long are we staying? Looking at Air B&B, many hosts are looking to rent the whole house out, as apposed to a single room. Maybe we can get a couple houses close-ish together? what are your thoughts?

        Several of us are staying at Robinhood Resort which is across the street from the race which is perfect for anyone who wants to sleep in until the last possible moment. 🙂 Due to work, I’ll probably be driving up late Friday afternoon and then heading home after the race.

          Just got an email from the big bear triathlon group the other day that the swim will be in a different location and “will start on Pine Knot’s deep water docks. This does two things; it allows swimmers a diving start (if desired) and it spreads swimmers out immediately right from the start.” Exciting news as my only gripe from last year’s race was the swim being in really shallow water and being able to walk from one buoy to the next.

          I’m interested in getting accommodations with any Cal Tri members doing the race. Also, I was trying to look back at the weekly emails to see if there was a Cal Tri discount code? Maybe I’m thinking of another race but if there is, can someone share?

              I’m not actually racing, but i will be volunteering that day. Does anyone know who might be driving up the day of the race that might want to carpool (Hollywood/Sherman oaks Area)?

                      Hi Brenna, that might work. At what time are you planning on leaving that morning? Is there a place we could meet that morning were i could leave my car, like a park and ride?

                      If i can ride with you that morning, then I could drive my friend Shannon back, that way at least she doesn’t have to drive down the mountain after the race.
