Athlete Check In Before an Event:  Athletes must check in prior to an event.  All field event check ins will be at the venue.  All Running events will be checked in at the clerks tent located on the west side of the track in the chute area. 



Volunteers:  We have great volunteers running all of our events.  If you have a volunteer who wishes to help with an event, please let me know.  All coaches should be able to coach their athletes.  If you see a problem or have an issue, please come see me (Meet Director).  Please do not get on to our volunteer help. 



Concession Stand:  Our Booster Club concession stand will be open.  We happen to have the best fries in the state.  I am sure will athletes will wait till after they have ran to try them. J They will also be selling water and powerade, along with apples and bananas.  And of course hamburgers, hot dogs and candy.



Infield:  We always try to keep athletes off of the infield during competition.  The only athletes that should be in the infield, are those who have checked in for an event and are waiting to run.  Any athlete just hanging out will be asked to leave.


Team Seating (Housing):  Your team may set up camp in the bleachers (home/visitor) or outside the perimeters of the fence.  All we ask is the first section of bleachers be reserved for parents who have paid to watch the meet. 


Entering and Exiting the track area:  All gates around the track will be locked.  The entrance to the track will be located in the chute area at the clerks tent.  The exit gate is located at the finish line.
