    Ya know, I bought that book, and its one of those ones that sat on the shelf. Not sure I have it anymore but I never read it.

    Will get back on the job soon..... so these interludes must do.

    Don't you like my Eugene Travelogue?

    And none of the hotel booking sites: Hotels.com, AAA, Priceline, Travelocity, Booking.com...allow booking this far in advance so you need to call hotel directly. I did a month ago and was able to book rooms 1 mile from track. Also, I called 4 motels less than 1/2 mile from campus and they all said they have not yet opened their calendars for the dates of WC's and would not do so until approx. Aug. 2020. Sounds like some inside jobs might book rooms before public has a chance.

    I think there is one AAA 4-Diamond boutique hotel with just 69 rooms, but your point is well taken.

    In the few years I've been here Eugene has upped its hotel game in the type of property I like to stay: not the Four Seasons (no such thing here), not a bargain, but good "suites" hotels. I was partial to both the LaQuinta & Marriott Residence Inn on the river when coming to town 'cause they're nice and you can walk along the river to the track. Home2Suties is a nice new place you can walk to from Hayward plus there are others new or going up within easy driving distance. airbnb works too.

    I have no idea and don't forget the VIPs from various countries will be grabbing most of the stock....especially the new rooms. Eugene is not a very big town. And except for the university there isn't much need for a lot of new hotel rooms, especially for a oneoff event. Unless you've made your reservations already you may be in for a long drive every day.

    This is the biggest problem I thought about having a 10 day international event in a city of 168,000.

    It is not clear from the story what is meant by "large hotels." The story lists four planned hotels, for a total of about 400 rooms. Any idea how that compares to the existing hotel room inventory? Seems like it only adds space for perhaps 1,000 additional visitors.

    Meanwhile...

    As a massive renovation of the stadium continues throughout 2019, the venue's hosting of the 2020 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials and the 2021 World Championships figures to bring a wide range of support infrastructure such as new lodging across the Eugene-Springfield area.

    The University of Oregon is working to renovate student dormitories into housing for athletes and possibly guests ahead of the premier athletic events, with tens of thousands of visitors from around the world expected for the World Championships in particular.

    Right...Uncle Phil spends $200m to build his stadium and not get the WC....story doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Pre at Stanford...did Pre actually ever run there?
