    Well, this registration was a disaster. Trying to register as a first time competitor as a masters female and I could not. I had to select BOTH – male and female options – to get past and register for this meet. In my few tries of unsuccessfully trying to bypass the “male” option the whole registration was sold out in 5 mins. Not to mention, I had to list the name of the “gym” as a mandatory answer. Why? Again frustrating I Didn’t know what it meant. It was a very frustrating experience nonetheless. I am on the wait-list but I have no idea how this will work out. I hope there is a positive resolution to all of this.
