    Nationals: Ending time on Sunday? Guess? What was Indy?

    Trying to figure return air flight times.

    Anyone remember what time of day nationals finished on Sunday last year at Indy?

    Any guesses on this year at Mesa? Anyone remember the time last time it was at Mesa?

    Re: Nationals: Ending time on Sunday? Guess? What was Ind

    I was in the very last heat to finish at Nationals last year in Indy... if I remember correctly, it was around 4:30.

    Wait... they had a live video feed. Let me go look. Oh! There I am pulling myself out of the water at 4:39 :P

    Indy ran a really good mean that was a little ahead of schedule most of the time.
    400 IMer/200 backstroker in another life, now sprinter/breaststroker... Yeah, I don't know how that happened either!

    Thank you very much for that info. Dang, didn't think to check the live feed. Indy did drop the 6th event, but I'm guessing Mesa will be a bit less attended, so maybe that will even out (assuming Mesa doesn't drop 6th event) and end around same time? Airport is supposed to be 20 min away. Need at least an hour ahead of flight to get through security and such. Hmmm...

    I wasn't even really sure if they had the actual time on the live feed. It was hiding down in the corner of the scoreboard display though, lucky!

    I'm not sure if there's going to be that many fewer people at Mesa though. There's already 1100 people signed up for the meet. Indy had 2300 but IIRC registration absolutely exploded in April.

    Mesa is a popular venue for the meet. They hosted back in 2011 too, iirc. If it doesn't reach the same totals as Indy, I bet it comes pretty damn close.
