Natz Reg Watch

Ok, babblefans ... need the help of a few internet spies.

As you may remember, last year the US Cross Nationals in Providence RI filled up their registration insanely fast. By this time last year, several of the Masters cats were full and closed and the B's were well on to their way to filling a second wave of 150 guys.

This year for some reason the promoter has not got their online reg. running yet, but you can be sure once they do start the spots will go fast.

Maybe the USCF is thinking about introducing qualification requirements for 'cross, following the mess at this summer's Road Natz where fields filled up and many legitimate contenders who tried to reg onsite were not allowed to start, even though scores of registered entrants had failed to show. Just a guess, I don't have any actual facts on that issue, but it makes for good babble...

Anyway, all you net jockeys... please keep an eye out at cyclocrossnationals.com and if you see an announcement email me or Funke asap and we will post the news here. Thanks...

yep, sorry...i figured people would just google, but the choices are many.

I use an app called webmon. it's free.
one can also just use a free site like www.changedetection.com or www.watchthatpage.com. One benefit of the app is that it's much more responsive, that is, you can set it up to check at a much greater frequency than the sites. Some sites check only once/day.

It would be nice if the promoter put up an option to auto email when it becomes available.

RSS for all sites would be a good addition. Glad to see that the cross site uses this bit of teknawligy.

It looks like some of us will have to wait till the Natz get back over to the left coast before we see a SS class at that level.

Pretty lame site for a National Championship. No venue map or much of anything else.

Has anyone noticed that the host hotel of Nationals is up? The Westin? $230 a night. Hopefully there will be a special rate, 10% off. Did they forget we are the red-headed step children of the USCF? Not trying to insult redheads. In fact, I have a thing for the firery little devils. Has anyone searched for cheaper digs?
