In one week we have 40 teams signed up. Please make sure you get your money in. Right now we are looking at a max of 75 teams. There is a chance we could go to 100. But if you are planning on coming, then it is better to be safe than sorry, don't wait.

@LFCSumner3 Coach, Since you now have a better idea of what teams are going to be competing at the FSU Invite will you be posting how many different races you will have sometime before Aug? If im guessing you are looking at 3 Varsity races and 1 JV (maybe even 2 JV).. Example Elite Boys / Girls (25 teams) Invite Boys / Girls (30 teams) Open Boys / Girls (30 teams) JV Boys / Girls (good luck) My 2nd question is what will be the deadline to pay for the meet? Sometimes getting AD's to pay for a meet in July is not the easiest thing. Does late Aug sound unrealistic? Looking forward to the meet, and making the 8hr drive without getting pulled over. The cops near Tally are like Hawks!

@Gooch7 We are working on getting the schedule out well before August 1st. Hopefully by the end of next week. There will be 25 teams in each race. We are still discussing JV and some other minor issues. As for the deadline, we have established the final deadline to be September 21st. However, registration will close if we hit our limit of teams. And at the pace we are going, that will happen before 9/21.

@LFCSumner3 Will there be a Middle School Girls and Boys race? I am guessing no, may be hard to get all of those races in

Unfortunately this year we will not be able to have a middle school division. Maybe in the future this can be worked out.

Is there provision for individuals to enter, when their team is unable to attend due to the cost of travel?

Is the schedule pretty close to being posted? Just heard here at the clinic that there will be 4 Varsity races- Elite, Invitational, Small School, Large School, and that there will be 2 JV races, and 25-30 minute increments between races

@rcboys Alternatively, you can use Google Maps to find 7550 Apalachee Pky, Tallahassee, FL 32311-3448, then search for hotels nearby.

@nmmeans Here is a map of the 5k course. [b]http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/fsu/sports/w-tennis/auto_pdf/coursemap.pdf[/b] Here is a list of hotels provided by the Tallahassee Sports Council, including designated rates for Oct. 5-6: [b]http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/fsu/sports/c-xc/auto_pdf/2012-13/misc_non_event/FSUInvitationalPreStateHotels.pdf[/b] We are still working to lock down the final schedule, which will require a bit more time, but tentatively it will look like this: 7:40 a.m. - Gold Boys (Elite) 8:05 a.m. - Gold Girls (Elite) 8:35 - Silver Boys (Invitational) 9:00 - Silver Girls (Invitational) 9:30 - Bronze Boys (Large Schools) 9:55 - Bronze Girls (Large Schools) 10:25 - Platinum Boys (Small Schools) 10:50 - Platinum Girls (Small Schools) 11:20 - Brave Boys (Jayvee) 11:45 - Brave Girls (Jayvee) At this time we are trying to secure two more junior varsity races. There also may be a time alteration (based on available daylight), which would potentially move the start of the first race back. There will be a dedicated page for all cross country meets at Apalachee Regional Park launched in the near future at www.seminoles.com - which will be located on the Cross Country page.

Checks are coming in quickly. I sent out a reminder to everyone registered on flrunners. Payment is what guarantees your spot. Please make sure you are getting your payments in asap. I will post an updated entry/paid list next week. I also need coaches to let me know if you are planning on bringing a JV team. We finally have approval from the county to have 4 varsity races and 2 JV. Coach Braman has one last meeting today and after that I will get the final schedule released. Any questions or concerns need to be directed to me at LFCSumner3@aol.com. Looking forward to seeing everyone in October. Coach Sumner

Who specifically do we make the check out to? FSU? And have they done the approved vendor paperwork for all the counties? (specifically Volusia, but I know Orange and Seminole Counties need that paperwork too).
