Notes from the Director.

1. Thank you for coming to the David Cannon PB Meet, without you we cannot have a successful meet.

2. Lets hope the rain stay away and we would have a great meet. Door #5 will be open for the athletes to use the bathroom but not to be staying inside - they is a basketball tournament going indoors. We have 5 port-a-john outside.

3. Coaches meeting will be at 8:45PM at the finish line.

4. The 55m hurdles will be first, follow by the race walk and then we have Special Olympics 100m dash then the 4x800m. The first 3 events will give Ivan some time to move the camera.

5. I will keep the meet moving as fast we can especially if we have rain - so please have the kids check in early.

6. I will have a table by the check in for the kids to check their lane and heat. It will help make the meet go fast. I will have safety pins if they want to pin their numbers.

7. Only the first 4 heats in the 55m dash and 300m dash will have blocks and I think for the first 6 in 300m will be in lanes.

8. If, you have any scratches - please let Ivan know as soon as you get to the meet.

9. 4x200m will be water falls - I do not have the markings for the race.

10. If you have an substitutions - please have your kids run in the same heat and lane and let us know and we will update the results.

11. The uniform rules will be relax as much as possible due the weather - we just need to know what school they kids are competing for.

12. Please remind the kids to keep the infield as clear as possible unless they are checking - the back field is open for warm ups.

13. The live results should be working.

14. Medals for top 3 individuals and top 3 relays.

15. Cost is $5.00 at the gate - we take cash, Venmo and PayPal. We talk square at the concession too.

Please let me know if you need anything and lets get the season started with some good competition.

Thank you,
Coach Wong
