Come Visit Michigan - August 16-19

Hey folks,
Want to beat the heat and relax with some training and good fun? Come to Michigan this August for the #Sworry trials training party. Fun, refreshments, donuts, and no sharks.

Here is a description. If you're a bit interested, there's a survey link inside, or message me.

In the spirit of the revival of Detroit, we're casting our own medals out of genuine scrap car parts. If you don't hear from me, it's cause I blew myself up in my backyard do it yourself foundry. (the prototype pattern is ready, now I just need fire!)

Safe training and racing to all!

    I'm in on this. If anyone is interested in splitting a car, I will be arriving at DTW on Thursday morning around 9:45 AM and leaving Monday at 14:15. Flights are booked and will update if times change at all. Just posting to let anyone know that may be looking at arriving around the same time. I don't mind hanging out for a while if necessary to make things work. I can always go shopping for sneakers... Looking forward to seeing / meeting everyone.

    Updated arrival and departure times

    #Sworry to Aaron in advance. My fault @ItsShug , I scheduled it over Mrs. Webstey's celebration of birth.

    We will be moving #Sworry up a couple weeks for year 2. (I'm an optimistic sort of fellow)

    You all have no idea how much I'd love to be there. My wife's bday is literally August 16 and while I'm sure she would insist I go anyway, I can't do it. I really hope to see lots of footage!

    Oh boy.
    It appears that the 3m x 2m "Happy Birthday Mrs. Webstey" sheet cake, chocolate fountain for dipping donuts, and twin boys certified game day complete with bounce house will be going to waste.
    @M_Ware, what will we do? @Craig D is committed to keto, so asking him to help would be accessory to murder.... We will adapt.
    I'm mystified that @AaronWebstey thinks he's found something more romantic.....

    I say we just start having lots of beers, and maybe we'll be able to re-brand the cake.

    Also, this is the first public warning. While this is training, and I know no one attending is competitive in the least.....
    There will be a substantial time credit during events for dressing in a recognizable TV/Movie/Internet character costume. @M_Ware, if you have an adult sock money costume, that's at least double time credit........ as is a Ben Hobbs costume.

    @Tad_Machrowicz hardly a commitment to keto these days. This train stops for cheese cake of any variety at the moment.

    At this point I’m feeling my only viable costume option is Mrs. Butterworth.

    We embrace all characters....... it's gonna be a tough swim in that hoop skirt, and we require the bonnet to be flourescent. Go @M_Ware , that's a bold strategy Cotton!

    @KenElPescadoPelado and others who aren’t yet on the start list for #Sworry Trials 2018, there’s still time to commit! There will be shenanigans, there will be hijinks, there will possibly be famous triathlete impersonators, don’t miss out.

    Haha, well played Mel. Now that I'm moved & back to work, getting insurance to protect against the inevitable dumb shit (at the rate this team goes, I'm probably due for a collarbone break), and accruing a piss-poor amount of vacation - trust me, I am eyeing this REAL hard. Thurs night redeye - Tues flights are looking like the way to go for me.

    @KenElPescadoPelado nothing beats flying all night and then getting straight into exercising within a few hours of arrival. Its a special kind of awesome! Especially if the flight is full and the guy beside you is intent on drinking himself into a coma. It was such an enjoyable experience last fall on the flight to Toughman I signed up to do it all over again to attend. Get after getting your flights booked and maybe we can compare notes? I'm thinking I might be the guy going for the coma this time though.

    Your limo will be waiting at the airport @Craig D and @KenElPescadoPelado
    Look for a Manni's Landscaping stake bed truck. The darker mulch in the back is most comfortable for the trip!

    Hey @Tad_Machrowicz will we be needing one of these? (Michigan Recreation Passport) https://media.state.mi.us/MichiganeStore/public/ProductDetails.aspx?categoryID=5&productID=896

    Also, Roosters, I'll be driving across MN and WI then down through the UP to Holly. Are there any can't miss stops I should plan for? Everything on this trip east of Stillwater, MN will be new territory for me, I'm looking forward to it!

    yes @M_Ware , those with a car need a passport or a daily park entry fee. It's 9.00 per day, or 31.00 max for an out of state annual pass. You get it at the park entry shack. Don't buy in advance. If you arrive late in the day after the shack becomes unmanned, you don't pay for that first day.
