Please revise the schedule and start the meet at noon on day 1. Northern teams have 3-4 hour commutes and no atheltes should have to depart at 4AM and then compete for the next 2 days. The solution is not as simple as coming on Wednesday. Many schools do not have funds lying around to accommodate 2 overnights for a team nor will transportation allow buses to be away for 3 days. Getting a charter bus is another $2500 so that is no solution either.

Day 1 schedule remains the same? Day 2 schedule running events will move up 1-2hours? Usually the hold up for running events is the High jump event. This will be interesting.
