Miami International (MIA) is the closest. Drivng time can be 45 to to 60 minutes.

You can also check Fort Lauderdale (FLL) sometimes you can find cheaper flights to this airport. Driving time can be a little more than an hour.

Well I should say how far away is the person coming? Not needing a name or anything.

It was warm today, easily in the mid 80's I'm guessing, almost too warm since I was doing a lot of stuff in the warehouse today.

Right now I am guessing the farthest confirmed entry would be the entries from Brazil, however we have racers from Peru and Argentina that are trying to make arrangements to get to this event. We also have a large and very competitive group from Puerto Rico that will be racing with us, now that is a long swim. Of course you Texas racers have a long walk to get to this race as well. This going to be SUPER!

Hey Doug

Is the Paypal issue fixed yet? Also are you going to have T-shirts made for this event, being it looks this event can be the annual GT event to go to

Yes, the online registration is good to go now.

T shirts are not my area, but I will talk to the organizer about t-shirts and get back with the info.
