    Oregon has housed officials in the dorm a block north of Hayward several times for NCs and OTs. Spartan but adequate, the cafeteria is excellent and five minute walk from track.
    Can't beat it if you are just there for the track meet.,

    I've been looking forward to going to the WC at Eugene since they were announced. But, now I'm thinking of maybe going to the OT instead. I doubt I could swing both. I've been wanting to go to an OT in Eugene (been to Sac '00, '04), and actually had tickets for '12 and '16, but had to sell them due to family issues.

    Tough decision!
