Hey guys just an FYI from Hyatt regency Reston the 505 bus does not start till 0720 and metro trains start at 0700 on Saturdays. There is a 574 bus that leaves Reston town centre at 0600 0640 and 0720 that will get you to tysons west park transit station and you will need to walk down international drive about a mile to get to tysons tower. I understand this is a lot with your gear otherwise there is über and taxi services! Be safe and see you soon!

Hi Rodney ¡
again my question about if we can leave our gear after the meeting there.
it will be great if it's possible, cause as you know in the evening we have the opening ceremony , so we don't need to go back to hotel again.
thanks, Jose Antonio , MadridFD.

Hi Rodney ¡
I´m Jose Antonio , From Madrid FD.
I just want to know if it´s possible after the meeting, and check the gear, let the gear there.
And another question in Europe we don´t have NFPA, we´ve got UNE, in the case of firefigthers we have UNE 439 for the gear,i imagine like in others games will be ok.
Thanks Jose Antonio

Irena I meant to ask the same thing. Our hotel is not so near and leaving my gear after the meeting would help me avoid carrying it back and forth to my hotel. 2 years ago

Good post, Rene. I know Rodney and I am very confident that he and his team will facilitate a fair competition.

Gear/Stuff

hi Brothers, regarding the stari Race competition I make my experience in 2011 and 2013 and I find out that many Athlets not wear the regular gear.For example - there were guys which not wear the regular boots. Boots without the steelbar and guys which cut there trousers. That´s not fair in compere to the firefighters which wear the regular stuff!!!For example one boot with the steelbar weights round about2,5 Pounds!!that means that athlets which wear boots WITHOUT the steelbar safe 5 Pounds...

Stair Race

Hi Rodney
I arrive on the 25th evening. Can the gear be inspected on the 26th ok prior to the opening ceremony and if so where is the inspection taking place.
Also can you just wear shorts and a t shirt under the fire kit
