FINAL LANE DRAWS

These will be posted early afternoon.  There are very few changes at this time.

WEATHER

We are expected to have high winds today, but very light winds on Saturday, which is good news.  If you have a parent group planning on setting up tents today, please advise them to hold off until Saturday morning due to the high wind gusts.  We should have a calm but chilly start, and do expect precipitation by the end of our race day.

BUS PARKING

For those few teams with a bus dropping off the athletes, we will have them unload in the circle again, but once unloaded have the buses park on the drive near the team boat trailers.  Our parking folks will direct bus drivers.

VENDORS ON SITE

We will again have our T-SHIRT vendor, Earthbound, on site for the day, with multiple designs and reasonably priced.

We will have 3 FOOD TRUCKS on site on Saturday ..... (El Caribe, Kool Breeze and....... Chick Fil-A)

Please support all of these vendors and enjoy the food and swag.
