We will not be handing out lane assignments. We will have the lanes posted at registration, on the porta-toilets and the clerks will have a copy.
We will not hand out maps. Everything is online.
We will be using two lanes coming in to Masterson Station on Ruffian Way. The right lane will flow in to the field east of the fairground. The center lane will flow in to the hillside south of the fairgrounds. Take the shortest line for the fastest parking. Follow the parking attendants' directions. They know nothing about cross country. They only know where you need to park and they need to park you as quickly as possible . You will have to carry your tents, equipment, coolers in from the parking lot where you park. You will not be allowed to drop off. This is extremely important so that we can get everyone in to the park on time. We will not hold a race because of a traffic backup. Tell your parents to plan accordingly.
Drive down Ruffian Way and turn left up the first drive and follow parking attendants directions. They may be diverted straight to park on the right hand lot if there is a backup. There is to be no parking at the Dog Park.
Busses will take the second left in to the fairgrounds and park on the loop. No one else is allowed to park inside the loop.
PACKET PICK UP & CHIPS:
Packet pickup for coaches is at the Lions Club Pavilion inside the fairground fence. Remember to include the late fee if you are bringing the entry fee with you. We are using shoe chips. You, as coach, are responsible for the return of all shoe chips. Turn in chips not to be use at registration when you pick your packet up. Make sure your athletes turn in their chip before leaving the finish corral. Your school will be charged $10.00 for each chip not returned. We will have people clipping the chip off the shoe.
We will not award medals for 11-50 in the chute. We will print results and pass out medals at a table at the Lions Club pavilion for 11-50 after the top ten are awarded. Tell athletes to run through the arch. THEY CAN SPREAD OUT AND PASS PEOPLE. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO STAY IN LINE. This is extremely important Top 10 will be presented at the Lions Club building.
