Additional information:

Dear Coach,

We welcome you and your team to the 2nd Annual Riflemen Classic! We are looking forward to a terrific meet on what we believe is one of the best cross country courses in the state.

In order to provide a safe meet and continue our use of the Kernstown Battlefield we would like to remind you of a few important tips:

Please bring water for your team. While we will do our best to provide sufficient water please bear in mind that there is no running water at the Battlefield.

In case of extreme weather we may cancel or postpone the meet. Lightning, high winds and heat are the most likely issues we may face. Per VHSL rules, we will adjust the races as necessary to make sure we are in line with HEAT INDEX recommendations

In addition, we ask that you and your team respect the Kernstown Battlefield property and the Kernstown Battlefield Association (KBA). We respectfully ask that you abide by these rules:

1) Do not allow buses to drive on the KBA property. Please pull into the Battlefield and immediately turn to the left and drop off the athletes in the field once the bus is parked.

2) We request that parents or others driving to the meet, park in the area designated for parking, immediately to the left as you enter the battlefield. Please refrain from parking outside the grounds and then entering the course. Please stay away from the buildings on the property.

a. Handicapped parking will be identified and available at the request of the driver.

3) Do not allow runners, coaches or fans to sit or climb on the stone wall or other parts of the KBA property.

4) Stay out of all buildings on the property except the main shed where packet pickup is located along with t-shirt sales.

5) Do not allow any object to be thrown; Frisbees, footballs etc... on the property. There is a legitimate concern by the KBA about possible damage to historic property items, like windows, that are irreplaceable.

6) Stay on mowed paths while on the KBA property when racing, viewing the race or warming up to prevent possible injuries from hazards on the property, like overgrown brush, rocks, groundhog holes, poison ivy, ticks, bees or other unforeseen issues.

7) Please remove all trash prior to leaving the grounds

8) Please treat KBA volunteers with respect and honor any requests they may make. DMMS ATHLETICS
