Ironman on sale already??

So I get an email titled "$199 Early Registration for 2012 Ironman 70.3 Kansas and 2012 Ironman 70.3 Mooseman‏".

Sweet!  Two HIM's for $200!!  Not really.  For the low price of only $199 you can enter IM KS 70.3 (Regular $225) or IM MM 70.3 (Regular $260).

For you New Hampshire people, saving $60 is a decent deal if you know you are going to commit to the race a year out.  For us Kansans, is saving $25 really worth the uncertainty if you will be able to do the race ina  year?  It's not like it has ever sold out in Kansas.

Race entries per the last 4 years for IM KS 70.3
2011 : 1476
2010 : 2019
2009 : 1924
2008 : 1204

As you can see it's gained popularity, but last year was a STEEP decline in registration.  If they want to get back to 2009-2010 numbers, dangling $25 isn't going to get it done, I think.

Give me $75 or $100 and then you have me seriously thinking about next year.
