BUSES: Buses will drop off teams at the top of the dam and then continue down the road and park in the parking lot on the right next to the soccer fields.

FACILITIES: Bathrooms are available in the building at the bottom of the dam behind the softball fields. There are no bathrooms at the top of the dam. Team camps can be set up underneath the pine trees. The course goes through the pine trees so make sure you don't set up camp on the course.

MEET INSTRUCTIONS: Only the top 7 runners will be allowed to run in the varsity races. Alternate runners may be substituted in the day of the race. The uniform rule will be in effect. Check the rule book and go over it with your team before the meet.

FINISH LINE: All runners must go through the entire chute to be counted. They will have numbers that they will wear and the tabs will be pulled off in the chute. Also, remind your runners that their singlets must stay on until they are completely through the chute. If they take it off before they are completely through the chute they will be disqualified.

TIMING: Timing will be done by Michael Elkins at Network Timing, LLC. Results will be posted on milestat.
