Thanks for the updates. Hard to think inline when there's snow on the ground, but now's the time to plan out the season.

Just found out about the conflict with the Minnesota event. How do you all feel about Napa on July 8, 2012?

I wasn't planning on doing the Minnesota half next year so I was pretty happy w/ Napa being in August. Moving it back to July means I need to chose between that one and Chicagoland.

Chicagoland is usually at the end of July, I thought.

They haven't posted yet but I'm guessing it'll be the 21st or 22nd. I have to travel from Denver to these events; $$$ is limited so I'll only get to do 3 maybe 4: REALLY hoping for 5! I have to pick and choose. I really want to do Napa so either way I'll be there. I'm already signed up for NSIM and trying to figure out how to do Apostle; which leaves me 1-2 other races still to choose from!!

Still waiting for a chance to officially speak to the committee about it but I've got a few of the "big wigs" that run the Cherry Roubaix excited about adding inline. If it ends up being added the marathon will be Aug. 11th or 12th.

I received a PM about this and the person who contacted me is correct; the actual date is March 17th - not the 21st!!

BNumerick, I am interested in a tour race for Cherry Roubiax in August if I can swing the travel. The place I have to stay in MI is several hours south of the race location, though.

I also confirmed with the race director regarding the date for Rollerdome as March 17, 2012. They are supposed to be updating the site in the near future with more information, and hopefully registration.

I corrected the Metrodome date - my typo. I changed Napa's date because David changed the date listed on the website. I don't have any special contacts other than for Skate of the Union which happens 10 miles from where I type now. Let me know of errors, changes, and other road races and I'll try to keep the list updated (by modifying the original post for this thread). I look forward to seeing some of you when the weather warms up!

Default ESS dates

Brian - we'll check with Jeff F. on the dates for the 2012 Eastern Seaboard Series and post back. We both think he'd put the dates out already, but we can't find them now on FB. Happy holidays.

Last year they weren't published until mid April. I had already bought plane tickets for Napa Valley when I found out an ESS was on the same weekend. Since I was flying out of Baltimore Saturday afternoon, I was able to do both

Default Montreal Marathon date change

I've heard that the Montreal Marathon has moved their date to June 10. This is a nice change for those of us who loved the Apostle Island pavement, but would have made the easier trip to Montreal if on the same weekend.
