Bad Weather
In the event of bad weather, we will continue the meet regardless, with the exception of nearby lightning. If the meet is canceled, the decision will be made as early as possible. A cancellation announcement will be posted on the website and an email notification will be sent out to email addresses received during entry process. If canceled, the meet will not be rescheduled due to limited facility availability. 

Field Sizes
We want to allow as many great athletes into the meet, while still keeping the concept of the meet in place and the meet spectator friendly. Below are the approx. field sizes. Events with an '*' allow for meet management to shift field sizes depending on the closeness of the entered times. If an event is very close, we will try to get the athlete or relay into the meet if the event will allow it safely. If a tie-breaker is needed, we will contact coaches for a 'second best performance' entry.
