AWARDS TO FOLLOW AT CONCLUSION OF LAST EVENT
4.2 events will follow the set schedule, if by some chance the meet gets behind we will do our best to move as quickly as possible. If the meet gets ahead by more than 30 minutes a short recess will be called to allow the meet to get back on schedule. Make sure your athletes are aware of the order and are listening for their events to be called as they could possibly be ahead or behind schedule by varying margins. Missed running events will not be made up. Missed non-running events will only be made up due to the event being missed on account of schedule conflict(s) due to other event(s) being held concurrent with the missed event and will be done so on a case by case basis.

Throws and jumps will warm up at the event site and will be allowed no more than 2 run-throughs/practice throws before marks will be recorded. Once marks start being recorded no more warm-ups will be allowed and all marks will count. Once athletes have been called to the clerk to check in they should remain with the clerk until permitted to walk to start line. Athletes should warm-up prior to checking in for their running event. The small soccer field next to the high jump pit will be a designated warmup area before checking in with the clerk.

If it is obvious that the weather has set in and the meet is unable to continue the meet will be called and the coaches will meet to decide how to score the meet from that point.
