2018 David Cannon Polar Bear Performance list (htm)

Hello Guys - Few Updates.

1. We are going to move up the starts times to try and beat the weather.  

2. Field Events will now be at 9AM. Running events at 10AM.

3. We will do flights and try to keep them to 30 minutes each for Long jump, Triple Jump and shot put. There will be 5 minutes between flights and 30 minutes between event once we do the switch. If, the boys Triple/High Jump is over - tell the girls/boys to go check in. If, all of them are there - we will try and start early.

4. Three jumps and three throws. 

5. Please have the athlete pay attention to the event on the track and start checking early.  Please have them look at the table with the entries before going for their hip numbers. Tell the clerk their heat and lane - it will make the process quicker. 

6. For the substitution - just make the switch and give it to us, I will make sure the names are changed before the results are posted.  I want to print the program so the parents and clerks can keep up. 

7. One section of the 3200m per gender - coaches I will need you to help count laps.

8. Top 3 finishers in all events will get a dog tag. Results will be posted by concession and awards will be in the ticket booth. 

9. We can always use help - so feel free to offer.  Let's do our best to keep the kids when they are not running out of the infield. The backfield should be open for warm-ups. There are few portable toilets by the track but Door #5 should be open. Please don't ask the kids not be hanging out in the lobby - they are about 5 events going at Marshall include a basketball event. If the kids are hanging out - we will ask them to go outside. Please set your tents up on the upper part of the stands. so, we not blocking the finish line.
