We would like to invite you and your team to the Colonial Forge Showcase meet, to be held this year Saturday May 5th at our track in Stafford, VA. 2011s meet saw the recording of 28 National Elite and 135 Milestat Elite performances as defined by While full information is included in this packet, we wanted to direct your attention to a few things that we feel make our meet stand out from the rest:

College/Professional Time Schedule: One of the biggest challenges as a high school coach at a meet, especially with large teams, can be getting your athletes to the right place at the right time. Much like a college or professional meet, we set a time schedule once we have received all the entries and do our best to follow it as close as possible. This helps the athletes to plan out their pre-race routine and hopefully helps alleviate some of the when should I warm up? questions for you as a coach. We have included a preliminary projected time schedule and will publish a finalized time schedule once all entries have been received.
Entry/Payment Options: We understand that every team has different needs when it comes to entries for weekend invitationals. As such, we have provided two ways to enter our meet: a team entry fee and an individual entry fee. If you are looking to bring an entire team, you can use the team entry fee and receive a certain number of entries per event for a discount. If you are only looking to bring a small number of athletes, you can use the individual entry fee to save money. The individual entry fee may also be used for teams that would like to enter additional athletes in an event over the amount of slots they were given.
Coachs Hospitality: Throughout the course of the meet, your entire coaching staff is invited to our coachs hospitality room. We will be providing Chik-Fil-A sandwiches, drinks, chips, and baked goods for you all evening.
Survivor Race: We conclude the meet each year in our own unique way the Survivor Race. Each team will be given at least one entry into the race (final number will be determined by interest); all competitors will start the race, with a pre-determined number of runners to be pulled from the field each lap until only one remains. The champion of each gender will be given a unique trophy to commemorate the win.
ATMOSPHERE: Under the lights. Music. Top competition. Fast times. We try to encourage a big time atmosphere to bring out the best in each athlete and help them to prepare for Championship Season.

We have tried hard to design an invitational with you and your athletes in mind. Should you have any questions or suggestions, please contact using any of the information listed later in the packet. We look forward to seeing you and your teams the first weekend in May.
