Happy Race Day!
Thank you to EVERYONE who has volunteered to work today's race. We still need:
3 Gate Judges
1 Finish Ref
2 Starters--one for boys and one for girls.
Training Provided. The Starters will be at the start communicating with the Timers in the timing building. The Starters will tell the Timer the bib number of the person in the start and the Timer will tell the Starter when they are ready for the next racer to go. The Starter then gives the Start Command: "Racer #XX, Ready, Go".... the racer then has ten seconds to exit the start.
The Finish Ref stands at the finish line and records the bib numbers of every athlete who CROSSES the finish line in the order that they come across. The Finish Ref also watches for any issues that arise at the finish line (i.e., missed gate, crossing the wrong finish line, racer over takes near the finish line, etc.).

Secondly, we will attempt to take team photos tonight at 4PM. SW athletes will go first. Then Washburn. Then Roosevelt/South/Edison. Look for Janna Franboni (Stella and Beckett Wedren's mother) around the finish arena a little before 4PM.
See you soon.
