    As I age up tp 70 for Nats in 2016, I find myself really looking forward to getting older. OK my times will never get faster at this juncture, but I keep pace with others in my group and sometimes beat them. "swim long & prosper"

    There are no plans for a shuttle for Greensboro.

    Why no shuttle? Shuttles are cheaper than renting a car and drop you off at the door instead of hiking from the parking lot.

    In 2012 the shuttle expense was ~$21,000 and only 330 people purchased a pass. Passes were $20ea ($6600 revenue). That means the breakeven price point needed to be ~$63. I suspect that you could use a taxi each day for a comparable cost.

    Anyway, the host did not bid with a shuttle and they are not required to offer a shuttle.

    This most recent Nationals in San Antonio had an excellent shuttle. Did it make money?

    LOL !!!! I type that a LOT. I never had any formal typing class and it shows when I don't proof read it.
    Thanx for calling me out on NOT proof reading my stuff.
    I'm glad I swim better than I type --- at least I think I do????
