1) The Laguna Phuket triathlon sold out BUT they have
given me race slots for any athletes who want to accompany
me for this trip. The 70.3 race is still open for entry.
For 70.3 you need to register at http://pim.goadventureasia.com/imapMMX/signin.asp . For the Laguna Phuket Triathlon, register on the waitlist at http://goadventureasia.com/lptregist.shtml. In the remarks field you must put "Group Ben Greenfield". If you do so, you can still get into the race.
2) I was able to book a block of rooms at the main hotel
at the center of the race hub and *exactly* where
you want to be for all the action, for a 30% DISCOUNT
(plus, cut that in half if I hook you up with a roommate).
3) I was given all information about WHAT you need to do to
get the rooms and to register for the race, along with
special "travel agent" pricing, even though I'm not an agent.
4) I have had 8 athletes confirm that they will be attending
and so that leaves room for SEVEN additional athletes. I simply don't see myself being able to arrange logistics and guide more than FIFTEEN athletes on this trip. So, 7 slots left.
5) Let's be very straight up about cost: I am flying from
Seattle in the U.S. and, not counting food & incidentals,
am budgeting $2950 USD for the entire trip, start to finish.
6) Let's also be very straight about MY responsibilities:
I will get YOU your hotel, a roommate to share costs with,
your race slot, get you and your bike from the airport
to the hotel, do guided race course tours, get awards banquet tickets if you want one, and arrange all nightly dinners, social functions and group parties.
7) Let's finally be very straight about YOUR responsibilities:
YOU will register for the race following my instructions, arrange your own flight into Phuket, pay $200 USD for me to organize everything, and make sure you settle with me for your share of the room block.
So IF YOU WANT IN, reply via e-mail very soon! I will be acting
fast to squeeze us into the race. Like I said, only 7 slots are left.
P.S. Yes, that's me in Thailand with a monkey.
