Discussion: Highlander: Who you bet will win?

piutepro:
The registration for the Highlander/Lowlander 2010 will close on Saturday, 9/25/2010.

The course includes fine and challenging navigation (unless you know whom to follow), a trail run and three active food/drink stations. The King/Queen of the mountain looks like long grinding climb.

If you bring along your family, there will be white, yellow, orange courses available at the same location on 2010 Seven Lake Drive.

bib no. 1 has registered.

Oops, looks like we have some technical difficulties with the bib number allocation spreadsheet -- #1 may be going to Balter...

Is there a list of registered competitors, so we know who to hassle about entering?
Sep 23, 2010 2:06 PM #

There's a list on my computer. Should I post the names here?

See, now one sees that the most obvious missing names are Balter, Breton, McGrath, Riley, Bergeron, and those are clearly the people to harass.
Sep 23, 2010 3:43 PM # 
jjcote:
Also conspicuous are Levine, Regan, and Sturtevant. And Hillary. PG is injured, and I think Schaublin, Breton, and Young are accounted for but just not on the list yet. Balter has been MIA for the past three years. Bergeron and McGrath have been spotty, the former having showed up only twice in the past five years, the latter twice in the past nine. Sharon was a no-show last year (and missed '06 and '07 as well), and I wonder if we've seen the last of her. I'm pretty sure Goodwin won't be returning.

eddie:
I injured my ankle picking up streamers on Labor Day. I've been dropping planned races (including HH) since then. :( Trying to be healthy for the US champs.
Sep 23, 2010 4:11 PM # 
Wyatt:
Riley is now registered. Some other prominent DVOAers have conflicts:
McGrath (Boggs),
Masalkov (work conferences)
both Arvidsson's (guests in town)
the other Riley (birthday prep...)
Not sure about Federov.

Would be nice to see more Childs, Underwoods, and Olafsens too.
Sep 23, 2010 4:45 PM # 
piutepro:
My educated guess is that there are 64 racers now, maybe about 10 more will sign up. With the scientifically calculated attrition rate of 15.4054% for the assumed field of 74, we will have 62.6 finishers...

One Childs needs a ride, but is planning on going. Just Lowlander, though.
Sep 25, 2010 2:33 AM # 
Bernard:
Hey I thought the chef was registered automatically?!
Sep 25, 2010 5:35 AM # 
piutepro:
Chefs should be registered automatically, you're right. Meet directors, too. But then, I finally signed up after visiting the registration web site about a hundred times to get the registration count.
Sep 25, 2010 2:42 PM # 
jjcote:
If the chef's registration information (such as date of birth, SI number, etc.) had some way of magically appearing in the registrar's spreadsheet...
Sep 25, 2010 11:33 PM # 
piutepro:
In other words, we need to find a way to hack into our own registration web site. - Anyway, the non hacking approach to registration allows another 4 hours and 31 minutes.

Runners trying to register late will be charged a million dollar, going to Paul and me for a cool trip to Hawaii and to pay off each of our mortgages (J-J, you get a few hundred thousand, too). For good excuses I might give people some reduction of the late fee.
Sep 26, 2010 12:26 AM # 
coach:
Latest word from Princeton,Hilly plans on being there, but not running.
Sep 26, 2010 2:40 AM # 
piutepro:
There she is: Sharon Crawford returns to the Highlander, in a surprise move on the last day of sign up.

69 Highlander starters, 31 Lowlander starters.

150 hamburgers, 200 buns. South African oranges at the transitions. 30 gallons of water already hidden in the woods (thanks Paul...).

Control #11 is also used as the last control.

And the question of the day: Should we drop control #26 to make the course easier? You can vote. This doesn't mean we will follow the popular opinion, though.
Sep 26, 2010 5:10 AM # 
ndobbs:
no
let it be a sufferfest
Sep 26, 2010 5:58 AM # 
piutepro:
The regular registration for the Highlander/Lowlander is closed now. If you wish to register after this date, please contact the registrar via e-mail.

The late registration fee is $50 for the Highlander and $40 for the Lowlander (plus the rental fee for the SI stick, if needed).

Please be aware, that day of the race day registration cannot be guaranteed since we prepare a limited amount of extra maps.
Sep 26, 2010 5:59 AM # 
piutepro:
I hear you Neil, let's find some steep hills with blueberry coverage and a sprinkling of barberry around the control.

Sep 26, 2010 1:04 PM # 
Joe:
JJ. where are the stats?
Sep 26, 2010 2:03 PM # 
piutepro:
69 HH, 31 LL, by my count. - For some interesting reason, the random bib number generator assigned Joe #34509 instead of his coveted special magic number. But I am sure he won't mind.
Sep 26, 2010 2:05 PM # 
Joe:
no worries on the bib thing ; ) actually Daniel I was looking for the highlander stat page.
Sep 26, 2010 2:06 PM # 
piutepro:
J-J, the statistician and keeper of tradition, with an endless supply of important trivia the Cote Special Archives. I am sure he updated the numbers for this year, this must have lead to the improbable collapse of Joe's standing.
Sep 26, 2010 2:13 PM #

That's the standings before the 2009 HH (don't we like long posts here...)

If the Childs who needs a ride is in Worcester, contact me as before, but pronto, please.

Are there any other eastern/central Massachusetts Highlanders who want to do a day-trip carpool? Dean? Jeff?

Sam, Hilly, Alison
Will Jon Boris Ross (in any sequence)

Disclosure: I don't know about injuries and other factors. There are also a few racers whose HH capacity and talent is not rated. In other words, I don't know them.

Found beautiful woods in Harriman SP today. Watch for wet fallen trees. I tested one of them, an immediate crash landing followed. The rocks are partially wet and slippery, the streams rather high. Running temperature is perfect.
