I guess it's one of those 'ya snooze ya lose' situations and frankly I love it. It means only the die hard fans will be there. No wishy-washy "i'll go if nothing else is happening and tickets are cheap" fair weather fans.

Yeah, I guess it was nice sentiment to have the Trials in Eugene. But when you factor in the logistics and practicalities, it's a terrible choice.

Try making reservations sooner. You've only known that Eugene was going to be the site since...?
You may wish to try looking for rooms in Salem or Corvallis (45 and 30 miles drive respectively) or try Orbitz, Priceline, or Expedia to snag a cancellation closer to the meet dates.
Planning ahead works! This isn't the fault of USATF, USOC, George W. Bush, or any other popular Let's Run scapegoats.
If you've qualified for the last 3, shouldn't you know the answer to this question?

This may sound like a silly question to ask, but here goes.
Are athletes gauranteed some type of housing. I mean I hope to qualify, I have for the last 3 USATF meets, but you never know what could happen. If I wait until I know I have the "a" standard (April or May) will there be a place?
Anyone with knowledge would be great.
