Packet Pickup
Coaches may pick up their packets when they arrive to the course on Saturday in the scoring shelter. Be sure to bring your entry fee check if you have not mailed it yet. Sportsmanship forms will need to be signed when you pick up your packet. They will be located in your packet.

Starting Boxes
We will not have assigned starting boxes. Any box you would like for your team to start from is OK.

Competition Numbers
These will be sent out today and also included in your packet. Competition numbers will be placed both hands of each athletes, facing downward, so that our finish line workers can read them. Double check your numbers before your athletes report to the starting line. Remind your athletes to keep moving all the way thru the chute. Water will be avaiable at the end of the chute.

Athletic Trainer
An athletic trainer from Owensboro Sports Medicine and Orthopedics (OSMO) will be on site.

Course Preview
Any teams wishing to preview the course tomorrow may do so from 3:30pm-5:30pm CST. A coach must be present to supervise any athletes that are at the course. If athletes are present without a coach, they will be asked to leave and officials from the representative school will be notified.

Bus/Spectator Parking
Bus parking will be located at the gravel parking lot across the road from the course next to the lake and athletes are to walk from the lot to the course area. Spectators may park in any of the lots they wish to. As done previously for meets at Yellow Creek, spectators may park in the grass along the road next to the course, as long as it does not interfere with the team area. There will be no admission fee for non-team vehicles.

T-Shirts and concessions will be sold on-site.

Team Area
Tents may be set up in the grass area surrounding the shelter/gazebo area. We are asking that no tents be set up behind the finish line area.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to give me or Summer Bell a call or email.
