While this is a great idea on paper, in my experience it is
difficult to get people together for such things. People before
a triathlon are usually caught up in race-related nervousness and
last minute preparations, and afterwards they just "wanna go home"
I tried this idea going into Ironman Canada, and in hindsight,
I could see why there seemed to be little interest (although
I spent time with two of r.s.t.'s coolest people and their
families as well!)
Personally I like the idea of informality (hey there is an r.s.t.
logo! who can it be?) versus formal meetings.
