MSTCA Relays Div 1 and 4
With the weather forecast calling for heavy rain and high winds for Saturday we are postponing these two relays. We will be running the Division 4 meet on Sunday May 18th at Seekonk and the Division 1 meet at Andover on Monday May 19th.. This decision to postpone rather than cancel did not come easy. We know this is one of our favorite meets for the coaches and athletes. We also know it is impossible to run 4 relay sites with over 70 teams at each site on the same day because we do not have enough officials to cover all sites on the same day. We also had difficulty getting the technical equipment and operators at four sites on the same day. The Seekonk site is not available for a Monday Meet. Andover was able to clear off their facility schedule for a Monday Meet. We know this postponement will impact you and your teams. This is the best solution we could come up with. We have spent several hours trying to find a solution to save this great meet. This is a final decision !
Meet directors Frank Mooney (div4) and Peter Comeau (1) would like to hear from you ONLY If your team is not coming. Please do not contact us about refunds until the completion of the relay meet.You can reach Frank Mooney at firstname.lastname@example.org and Peter Comeau at email@example.com
Special information for the Andover meet……Andover has lights for the track events and the jumping events. IT does not have lights for the weight events which are held outside the track. The decision is that in the weight events , shot, discus, and javelin the athletes will get only 2 throws each. This will hopefully guarantee that all teams will get to compete before it gets dark at 8:00. All other events will remain as listed on the entry form. The meet will begin with field events at 3:30 and running at 4:00. We will try to accommodate those schools with long distances to travel to the site by putting mostly neighboring schools in the first flights of the field events.
Thank you for your understanding!
