The early-bird deadline for the Fall Classic is Oct 14. Save $10 and send in your entry now.

Remember, there is NO same day “Deck Entry”

This is at the INDY Natatorium.

Any suggestions on which hotel to pick? The ones near the pool are a bit pricey ($130-200 for single). I was thinking about Priceline, but the last time I tried that (for a triathlon), I ended up out in the boondocks.

I just canceled my room at the Courtyard on Senate. It was only 109.00 and I got that rate off the net. Decided to drive over on Sunday.

Don't know how close you want to be Mark, but this week I'm at the Best Western City Center for $99 a night.

Next week for GRIN we will be staying at
ExtendedStay Indianapolis NW
9030 Wesleyan Rd.,_ Indianapolis, IN_ 46268
11 Miles North_from_Indianapolis (City Center)
$49.99

Orbitz.com has a great deal at Comfort Inn at the Pyramids $31 a night. That's also 11 miles out.

We are staying at Amerisuites at the airport this weekend for 89.00 a night if you want to stay out there. It takes about 10 minutes to get downtown when no traffic.

Thanks for the replies. Good point, this is only one night, so the advantage to being in a hotel near the pool is marginal.

The Indy Starz Creepy Classic is going on the same weekend. So I'm guessing that we get half the pool, they get half, and both groups have to share the warm-down pool? (Unless that is being monopolized for other reasons.)

Is that a diving group?

I told my daughter that last year there was diving going on and she could watch it if is the same. She is thinking of coming with me to keep me company on the drive. <and to critique my swimming, something I never do to her, :)>

Glad to see all of you going to INDY.

Mark,
I did priceline and got the Marriot Downtown for $60.00.

If you put only downtown you should be safe.

See you on deck.
