I noticed that the lottery opened today for World Championship in Kona 2011, my question is, is the lottery worth trying? A guy on my tri team won a slot this year but does anyone know the odds? I figure it is 1 in 3000 or so based on the usually amount of entries in a typical Iron event. I hate to throw 40.00 dollars out the window (+ 50.00 for 2 entries) and not have a legitimate shot. I am fairly new to tri's with my first Ironman next season at Lake Placid, however I went to Kona for my honeymoon in August and there is something special about the place, I can only imagine it come race week. So what do you guys and girls think good ROI?
