Race Lotteries and Applications

In addition to keeping a race calendar, I'm now keeping a lottery and application calendar. Races are filling so quickly that you either have to be on the internet ready to lock yourself into a race months in advance, or you hope that you hit payday with your 'powerball-esque' odds in getting in via a lottery. Whether you get in or not determines how other races will fall into place.

I probably need a flow chart to keep up with everything. If Western States, then Grand Slam with prep mountain races for training. If Badwater, then Key100 and other heat intense races for acclimation. 

Looking forward to Badwater135 invitations to see how the rest of the year is going to pan out. If no Western States and no Badwater135 - I need to create another portion of the flowchart that answers the question - "then what?"
