Thanks once again also to ALL the helpers/workers/volunteers who come together to make this huge event happen! We had 215 boys and 145 girls with entries in the meet.
Keep in mind, the Girards like to group their sheets by team to make it a little easier to get through the massive amount of jumpers. They, as all our event workers will do, will try very hard to accommodate your athletes in multiple events. But remember, PLEASE have your athletes communicate with each field judge if they have to report to another event!
Hey Coaches - I've put up the worker's list at www.glasgowtrack.com. We've tried really hard to minimize the work that coaches have to do.
For most class C schools, you'll just have one coach to work one gender of one event. For the B schools, you'll have to have one coach at one gender of 2 events. Thanks to those who are covering a little bit more for me. There's a funeral that many of my workers will be at on Saturday morning, so I really do appreciate your help!
I overloaded most events so that you can cover each other if one of your athletes is competing elsewhere at that moment. Obviously, everyone can't get away for everything, but I'm hoping that you'll help each other out so that we can all enjoy the day!
A couple other notes: we'll have pizza and pop for the workers, and donuts & coffee for all coaches.
We will be weighing implements early, so if you'd like their weight verified, show up a little early. It's a lot of work for Coach Nelson, but a service we think is important, with qualification standards all in place.
Concessions and bathrooms will be available under the grandstands.
One other note: there will be a small gate charge for fans at our meet this year. We're definitely seeing lots of wear and tear on the facility, and this hopefully will help to further upkeep and repairs.
And, again, I made the entry deadline late this year, mainly because I'm an idiot. But, if you have any changes, please do them before noon Friday. We'll double check TRACK events on Saturday morning. I'll post heat sheets early Friday afternoon.
See you Saturday!
We also will be weighing in implements starting shortly after 8 a.m., so if you would like yours weighed, we will try to accommodate you the best we can.
