General Information

We have made some exciting changes to the meet this year. Please read through the following information and feel free to email me with any questions that you may have. Any times listed for events of course are not set in stone.

One of goals for our meet has been to allow coaches to compete all levels of athlete in an invitational format. We feel that this year, there are even more opportunities for teams and individual athletes. Later in this document, you will find more specific information.

Each athlete is limited to 3 events for the whole meet. Your entry fee is based on the number of events that you enter.

The meet this year is moving to a two day format. There are a number of reasons for this decision:

* We have the ability to have athletes use our gymnasium to warm-up on Friday in the event of cold and/or rainy conditions and bring them to the track for their races. Our gymnasium is about 200m from the track.
* This will give athletes much better recovery between events.
* We will be able to expand our field and quality, but still keep the meet manageable. The way we are handling entries this year will make the meet much more accessible to partial teams or individual athletes.
* Plans are to be finished on Saturday by 2:30pm.

As we have done in the past, coaches and officials will be offered both breakfast and lunch.

Awards will be given through 3 places. There will not be a team championship.

All timing will be FAT. The track was just resurfaced a little over a year ago.
