SAME ISSUE EVERY YEAR

People reserve a room because there is no charge to do so...so it's no money out of their pocket

People DO NOT REGISTER in advance because it is money out of their pocket right now ($150 or more [shirts] )

Even though your money will be refunded if you cancel 30 days before the event

SAME ISSUE....EVERY YEAR

yet without registration payments the Operating Committee (OC) may run out of funds (Watkins Glen ???)
and we want this to be the best event possible.

Kappas...consider Registration as a pledge drive

R U N S

unlike previous years Corning will NOT have a "structured" run schedule

There will be several runs to choose from, BUT
all runs will be loaded Garmin-friendly for you to download...,and ALL RUNS WILL BE POSTED SOON !!!

what this means is that you can still sign in to a structured run lead by a designated Road Captain (RC)
or you can download the run into your Garmin and freelance with other friends (making your own RC and Sweep)

this means you can basically leave at your own time (not a pre-assigned time ...like 8am) and return at your own time
Bio breaks and rest areas will be tagged into the run downloads

Therefore there is no RUSH to see what the runs are...and sign up (you can do any run on any day Freelance)

Questions will be answered if there is still confusion !!!

a Kappa owner asks.....

Hi. We’ve registered for NASSAM 2019! But, we need to know if there’s an itinerary of events as we probably can’t stay the entire week. Any info would be great, so we can book the hotel room accordingly. Thanks

THE OC has replied.

Our website is constantly adding new information...please be patient

Salvador Blumenkron If anything I would suggest to plan to be able to attend the dinner Gala. Which is usually held on the last night of the event. We are fine tuning the logistics and we will post more info as it becomes available, thanks!

A Garmin maps question:
Does anyone know if there is a current iPhone app which will use Garmin files to navigate. I ask here because we're planning to go to NASSAM 2019 and want to use the Garmin map files w/o buying a Garmin GPS. I searched here and have found nothing on Garmin w/ iPhone - and Garmin's site used to sell iPhone USA ($50) but it's no longer available - and all the Garmin apps (both at the Garmin site AND at the iPhone App Store) require (pair w/) a Garmin device (GPS or watch).

There is, or at least used to be, an app called GPXNavigator that would let you import and follow GPX files.
I don't have an iPhone and do have a Garmin so I have no experience with it but it may be worth looking for.

GPX viewer apps seem fairly plentiful but they will only allow you to look at the map and in some cases see your location on it.
I assume that printed turn-by-turn directions will be available along with the data files at least I hope that they will be.

I do not know how it went in Colorado, but we had a lot of trouble with routing when the files were loaded into Garmins with different software revisions.
Some of our routes got pretty "creative", and the leaders had their work cut out for them.

THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE

THE RADISSON IS SOLD OUT 6 MONTHS IN ADVANCE

I have cajoled the hotel to move 7 rooms to "open status"
(OC members were upgraded to make this happen)

Once these 7 are gone you will be referred to another local hotel. We will (hopefully)
have another 40 rooms made avbl within a 5 mile radius at these locations. We do NOT know which hotels
these will be until the C of C advises the Radisson .

Granted some rooms have been reserved "on spec" by people who won't register till Spring...and
some may even cancel. You may wish to be put on a stand-by list, but there is NO GUARANTEE that
Radisson rooms will be come avbl.

this has been a publicc service announcement brought to you by your NASSAM2019 OPERATING COMMITTEE!!
