April 21st Meet @ Union Catholic HS

We have our first meet this weekend on Sunday, April 21st at Union Catholic High School.  There are loads of details below.  Here are the highlights:

Date: Sunday, April 21st, 2013
Start Time: 1:00pm (please arrive by 12:30 for warm-ups if you want to do the 400 m)
Location: Union Catholic High School; 1600 Martine Avenue; Scotch Plains, NJ 07076
Track Events: 100m Fun Run, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1600m, Sprint Medley Relay
Field Events: Shot Put, Turbo Javelin, Long Jump

Please note, track meets are long and there are events going on for the entire time.  I will aim to be there at 12/12:15.  The first event is meant to start at 1:00.  I have estimated the timing of the events below though, so have a look and join us for as much or as little as you would like.

The only caveat is that the "fun run" for the younger children is after the first few events.  Therefore, if you have younger children, I would not arrive any earlier than 1:00 or even 1:30.  My guess is that if they follow the proposed schedule, the fun run won't be until after 2 PM.
