PLEASE CONTACT GREG IF YOU ARE DRIVING DOWN ON YOUR OWN AND/OR PLANNING TO DRIVE KIDS BACK EARLY!    

...Sorry, due to the late schedule, many kids that need to get back early for homecoming prep and anticipating there may be traffic getting over the GG bridge due to Fleet Week, we're skipping going to the beach this year!

Meet Highlights:  Course Address: 2600 Hallmark Dr, Belmont, CA 94002

The meet is sanctioned by the Central Coast Section for all schools in California.
The Crystal Springs Course is 2.95 miles of rolling hills, all run on trails. The layout of
the course is excellent for both runners and spectators. Chemical toilets and drinking
fountains are available at the course. A full snack bar will be in operation as in past
years. We will again be selling the traditional, long-sleeved, Crystal Springs Invitational
T-shirts. There are no dressing rooms, so have athletes arrive ready to compete.
To cover the increased cost of course maintenance, and overall functionality of
the meet, admission will be charged at the entrance gate. All coaches and athletes may
enter at no cost. The cost of all Adults and Children 10 and over will be $2. Coaches
please pass on the information to your parents.
Please respect the private property in the area. Do not go on to people’s
property to get water or for any other reason. Please do not block people’s driveways.

...Should be a great weekend!

Next post will have an update with Crystal Springs + our NBL meet vs. Rancho detailed results!
