Coaches, if you are entering both elementary and middle school athletes your maximum amount due should be $75. It should not charge you for both. If anyone has a problem with this or if you have questions, please email me at dhoward520@gmail.com.

Coaches, I know middle school teams sometimes need to wait to the last possible time to enter athletes but we do ask that if you plan on attending the meet please at least enter your team as soon as you can. We want to plan awards and other accommodations in a timely manner and need to have a good idea of how many teams and athletes we will be hosting. Also, a reminder that entries close the week before the meet, not the week of the meet so please enter athletes on time when that time comes. We do already have 5 teams entered and might end up needing to limit participation so if you know you are coming to the meet we recommend entering the team now to ensure a spot. Thanks again and hope to see you in October.

Saw Laura Fredrickson's email regarding the FLYRA State Finals and qualifying meets. We are up to 9 registered teams but definitely looking for a few more. Lots of club teams so far so opportunity for a couple of school teams to qualify for state finals if you get registered. Laid out the 3K course yesterday. All grass, two loops, very coach / spectator friendly.
