If Lisa and I are the only ones lifting (and Lisa is even iffy right now she hurt her back) then I might skip this and go lift with Alex in Florida in November.

Is it a full power meet?

it is Full Power.

and Florida in November is a nice place, compared to Canada (weather Wise).

We've got a little airport about 70 minutes away that does $49 flights to Orlando, alas, Port St. Lucie is 2 hours away from Orlando

What are flights from your area? Gotta be 4-500. Pretty reasonable from here.

4-500?  Not likely.  Flights to NJ were $800 each, which is why I'm not going to the rumble.

It's roughly $150 round trip from Boston to Palm Beach, then it's rent a car to drive up to PSL.  Once I figure in 4 people, the price jumps a bit.

Add in a hotel for 3 nights, and it's looking like $1500 to compete in Florida.

I'll confer with the Missus, and see.  Otherwise, we're looking at Long Island (Hofstra) or Pennsylvania.

Looks like flights to Florida will be the same-ish $700-900 each depending on options.

Also need to rethink doing anything in November.  We're going live November 5th with JDE and I am in charge of the project.  Would not be smart to plan to be out of the country shortly thereafter...

So maybe I should just do Rochester and call that my 2018 competition roster.

Jim - if flights are cheaper flying out of Syracuse you are more than welcome to park your car at my house and I'll take/pick you up at the airport.

Just an option.
