CTK Track News for week of 24 Mar 08...

Happy Easter to all of the CTK/SC/SS Track Families!

We don't have a meet today (as you know) and there's no practice on Tuesday.

Distance runners should definitely be running on the side (accompanied by parents, right?) to maintain their fitness, and I'll see those of you not on vacation this week at practice Thursday.
  • Thursday, March 27, from 5 - 6:30pm at College Park HS track.
Note the later ending time -- we'll be going until 6:30pm for the rest of the season.

Meet #2
Our next meet is at the end of most school's spring break:
  • Saturday, March 29, at 9am at Heritage HS track
Please check your calendars to see if your family is going to be on vacation that day and let your runner's primary coach know if your athlete won't be there. Please arrange to switch with someone who will be in town if you are scheduled to work.

Relay Meet
The following week is our relay meet. The relay meet has just three relay events for all grades. It's a lot of fun and this year our meet will take place on Sunday (note SUNDAY) afternoon (not MORNING) April 6, at Granada High School in Livermore. This is the venue for the Saturday portion of our League Championship Meet and the Diocese Championship Meet later in the season so I hope you all can make it.

I just reworked the relay meet volunteer schedule after consulting with our co-hosts at St. Michael/St. Charles. If you recall, many of you signed up to work this meet back when it was just a list (without specific jobs) and scheduled for Saturday morning. Please check if you are available to work Note that I moved many of the names I recognized into actual jobs and scheduled other parishes to do many of the jobs too.

By the way, this track has an electronic timing system so we'll need fewer volunteers than usual. I'm told they even have the Lynx timing system hooked into the scoreboard so times appear just each race just like the Olympics. Should be fun!

See you on the track, but not until Thursday,
