I just received word from Mel Goldstein that the Indy Firecracker meet July 2nd has been cancelled due to lack of interest.

I'm really disappointed, but I hope that you will all come to the July 17th meet in Carbondale. The meet information is posted at Shea Classic Meet Information (http://www.cmsaswimming.org/MeetMarket)

Yeah, I'm disappointed too. At the very least, for using Priceline for a hotel room (no refunds!). The meet was a lot of fun two years ago, despite the terrible weather on the drive to Indy.

Two things: (1) I did PriceLine very early, (2) I extended the search to NW Indy. It meant a bit of a drive (30 minutes??) on Saturday morning, but I figured having the hotel room meant not having to drive 3.5 hours at a shot.

I have found that any of the hotels on the outskirts are much cheaper, more available, and early on Saturday, the drive is at most 15 minutes. In fact, I have been staying on the East side, and the drive is only 10 minutes. There are quite a few of the regular chains on the East side, and the area is not bad.
