As far as the long lines for registration - there is only 1 reason that wait was as long as it was - the old bat that was checking USAT cards!!! She looked at my card like it was the fakest ID she ever saw in her life. She looked at the front of the card for 30 seconds, flipped it over and looked at the back for 30 seconds, and then look at the front again. What was she looking for? My suggestion is get someone who knows what the hell a USAT card looks like and can get people moving. Or maybe add 2 or 3 additional old bats who don't know what a USAT card looks like.
Totally uncalled for. Bring a chair, sit on the ground, go the day before or later in the day. That "OLD BAT" volunteered her time to be there and without her, their is no race. You should thank her and kiss her on the cheek. She took a minute and a half looking at your card, OMFG. You stood for a half hour in line, she stood all daylooking at ungrateful peoples cards.
I can really seeing that ruining your race.
Stop acting so offended. You act as though I shoved this lady to the ground and spit on her (after kicking her in the ribs). I never said this "ruined my race" - you did. The long line and wait did not bother me. I was simply telling the others who posted that the line was long that SHE was the reason for the holdup. And this is a suggestion thread - my suggestion is to get someone else or add more people to the USAT card check. As far as the "old bat" comment is concerned - that was uncalled for - you are correct. But I highly doubt she is spending her time right now reading up on the GCT forums. And yes Sheldon - I DID thank her! I thank every volunteer I come in contact with. In every race. You read way too deeply into my comment and made a few a##umptions of your own - like that I was ungrateful of the volunteers. It's sad that I have to stop and re-read each post I make to be sure I don't upset sensitive people like you.
