FW: CX Promoter Summit [23-25 April 2010]
Dear CX Event Organizers –
A huge thanks to those of you who have submitted your registration form for the CX Promoter Summit the weekend of April 23-25 here in Colorado Springs. An updated version of the original email is listed (below).
If you have not registered or responded, just a reminder to complete and submit the attached CX Promoter Summit Registration form (attached to this email) to me.
If you have given me verbal or email confirmations, please still submit the form, especially if you would like to take advantage of the Olympic Training Complex accommodations. The deadline to reserve your space with me at the OTC is March 21, 2010. After this date, you may still register for the CX Promoter Summit, but you will be responsible for housing off-campus (see the attached flier for the Hyatt Summerfield Suites as a housing option) and transportation. Shuttle service will be provided for attendees staying at the OTC to/from the Colorado Springs airport and to the Friday and Saturday night functions. All of the meetings will also be held at the OTC.

The meetings will be held at the Olympic Training Complex in downtown Colorado Springs. It’s about 10 miles from the USAC offices. OTC accommodations are dorm-style (so probably 2 people per room, based on how many people would like to stay there). The OTC provides free shuttle service to/from the Colorado Springs (COS) airport. All meals are included, too. Sweet deal at $25/day. Attendees should plan on paying the nightly OTC accommodation fee to USA Cycling upon arrival (or the first day of meetings).
Hyatt Summerfield Suites – Rockrimmon and Delmonico, Colorado Springs, 80919
Discounted rates have been negotiated with Hyatt Summerfield Suites near the USAC offices. It’s $59/night (super deal!). Please book your room directly with the Hyatt and mention the code: G-CXS4. The promotion flyer is attached to this email. Attendees staying at the Hyatt (or other accommodations other than the OTC), should plan on their own transport to/from the meetings and dinners.

If you would like to attend the CX Promoter Summit, please complete and submit the attached form to me. The OTC housing is limited, so it is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you indicate you would like to stay at the OTC, I will send you additional forms to complete prior to your arrival. I will also need your flight information (if not driving), if you would like to use the OTC shuttle to/from the Colorado Springs airport.
