All Comers’ FIELD Meet Final Instructions

Good evening everybody!

Well, we have three days until our first Pendleton All Comers’ FIELD Meet!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW. PLEASE READ.

Just wanted to send out some final instructions on how to register, where to set up tents/spectator areas on the track, where to enter the facility, how we will run events, etc.

Reminder, this meet is the FIELD events only. We will only be doing jumping/throwing events at this meet. The meet is on Saturday, June 15th.
Registration will open at 8 AM and the events will begin at 9 AM. Schedule of events here: FIELD MEET #1 SCHEDULE.

The meet is being held at the PENDLETON HIGH SCHOOL track & field facility. 1800 NW Carden Ave. Pendleton, OR 97801 is the address of our high school. If you enter by up the hill by the main readerboard sign for PHS, you will then take the next right and you will see the student parking lot on the left. The track is located at the top of that parking lot.

Registration will take place at the Southwest Gate Entrance to the track facility. We will have a few tables and two tents set up where you can pay, fill out entry forms, and event stickers.

Any athletes under the age of 18 are REQUIRED to have a parent/guardian’s signature on their entry/waiver form. Registration forms can be printed off from here: FIELD MEET #1 REGISTRATION FORM.

We will be using the STICKER METHOD for event entry and result collection. This means athletes will take mailing labels (available at registration tables) where they will fill out their NAME, AGE, GENDER, EVENT, TEAM NAME OR UNATTACHED on a mailing label for each event they will be competing in. Here is what the mailing labels will look like: ALL COMERS’ MEET ENTRY/RESULT STICKERS.

FACILITY SETUP AND EVENT LOCATIONS:

SHOT PUT & DISCUS: The shot put and discus will be thrown in the field up behind the scoreboard to the west of the track.

JAVELIN: We will have two javelin areas down on the infield of the track. One javelin area will be for 14 YEAR OLD AND OLDER athletes and the other will be for 13 YEAR OLD AND YOUNGER athletes. The 14+ javelin pit will be in the east endzone of the football field (athletes will throw from the pole vault area into the infield. There will be a VERY wide area flagged off around the 14+ javelin competition area where ONLY VOLUNTEERS AND COMPETITORS will be allowed, please help us make sure this is followed STRICTLY. The 13 and under javelin pit will be located around the southwest corner of the infield (athletes will throw from the south straightaway of the track into the infield).

LONG JUMP/TRIPLE JUMP: The long jump runways and pits are located in the west endzone. Girls will be jumping in the east pit. Boys in the west pit. Athletes ages 12 and under can jump from the edge of the sand pits. Athletes ages 13 and up will jump from the standard takeoff boards.

HIGH JUMP: The high jump is going to be held from and center down just past the finish line in the northwest corner of the track.

AGE GROUPS AND EVENTS:

SHOT PUT: All ages
JAVELIN: All ages
LONG JUMP: All ages
HIGH JUMP: All ages
DISCUS: Middle School Age athletes and up
TRIPLE JUMP: Middle School Age athletes and up

I have attached a document with the weights of implements each age group will use. You can bring your own implements, but we will have implements provided at the meet as well.

SPECTATORS: We are asking all spectators to set up tents, chairs, blankets, etc., on the grass hill area and cinder block levels next to the track tower. PLEASE STAY OFF THE INFIELD. Spectators may stand along the track to get a better view of the events going on in the infield, but pelase no chairs or tents on the track. All spectators and athletes that are not competing NEED TO STAY OUT OF FLAGGED OFF AREAS. Athletes that are warming up for an event, coaches, and volunteers should be the ONLY ones on the infield of the track.

Results for this meet will be posted on athletic.net and on http://www.risingphoenixtc.com to the best of my ability. The results may take a few days after the meet to be posted. Athletes of both genders and all different age groups will compete against each other during the meet, do to the open pit nature of most events, but results will reflect age group and gender separation. This is why it is important to be sure to have all the required information on all of your event stickers.

These meets are just meant to be a fun and relaxed means for athletes of all ages to come out and have friendly competition. We are trying to be sure to get enough help to run all the events as smooth as possible, but there may be a few events that are short, so it would be great for athletes, coaches, and spectators to step in and help if needed. This is for fun and we just want everyone there to be there to enjoy the sport of track & field and everything that it has to offer.
Please remember that every person that is a STAFF member or OFFICIAL at this meet are VOLUNTEERS and are donating their time to make sure this meet happens. Let’s use a lot of Please’s and Thank You’s with these folks and make sure everything stays cordial throughout the meet. I do not anticipate any issues though as all of these folks volunteering are outstanding people!

There will be some events that will be short on volunteers, so we will be asking coaches, spectators, and athletes that are competing to help measure, rake, and spot when needed. We would greatly appreciate anybody that steps in to help in these spots!

Thank you all so much! We are looking forward to seeing you this Saturday!

All Comers’ TRACK Meet Final Instructions

Good evening everybody!

The first Pendleton All Comers’ TRACK Meet is this Friday!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW. PLEASE READ.

Just wanted to post some final instructions on how to register, where to set up tents/spectator areas on the track, where to enter the facility, how we will run events, etc.

Reminder, this meet is the TRACK events only. We will only be doing running events at this meet. The meet is on Friday, June 14th.
Registration will open at 5 PM and the events will begin at 6 PM. Here is a schedule of events: TRACK MEET #1 SCHEDULE.

The meet is being held at the PENDLETON HIGH SCHOOL track & field facility. 1800 NW Carden Ave. Pendleton, OR 97801 is the address of our high school. If you enter by up the hill by the main readerboard sign for PHS, you will then take the next right and you will see the student parking lot on the left. The track is located at the top of that parking lot.

Registration will take place at the Southwest Gate Entrance to the track facility. We will have a few tables and two tents set up where you can pay, fill out entry forms, and event stickers.

Any athletes under the age of 18 are REQUIRED to have a parent/guardian’s signature on their entry/waiver form. Registration forms can be printed off here: TRACK MEET #1 REGISTRATION FORM

We will be using the STICKER METHOD for event entry and result collection. This means athletes will take mailing labels (available at registration tables) where they will fill out their NAME, AGE, GENDER, EVENT, TEAM NAME OR UNATTACHED on a mailing label for each event they will be competing in. Here is an example of what the mailing labels will look like: EVENT ENTRY/RESULT STICKER. After an athlete runs, they will stay in their lane, or in the finish line chute, where our finish line clerk will come and collect their sticker for the result sheet.

We will be using two forms of timing for this meet. We will have hand timers on a Sprint 8 machine as well as video Fully Automated Timing. I will also be posting results for these meets, to the best of my ability, on athletic.net and on http://www.risingphoenixtc.com. It will likely take a few days to get full results posted after the meet.

SPECTATORS: We are asking all spectators to set up tents, chairs, blankets, etc., on the grass hill area and cinder block levels next to the track tower. PLEASE STAY OFF THE TRACK AND OFF THE INFIELD. Athletes that are warming up for an event, coaches, and volunteers should be the ONLY ones on the infield of the track. We will have all of our field event flags and areas set up for the field event meet the next morning so we are also asking that everybody leave those areas alone and not to mess with the flagging in anyway.

These meets are just meant to be a fun and relaxed means for athletes of all ages to come out and have friendly competition. There may be times when the meet slows down or speeds up just due to how each heat is set up. There may be times when some age groups, genders, and even events get combined (for example, if we have very few 400 meter runners and very few 400 meter hurdlers, we may set up hurdles in a couple lanes and run them together). This is for fun and we just want everyone there to be there to enjoy the sport of track & field and everything that it has to offer. Results will be reflected as separate for age groups and genders even if there are mixed races. However, this is why it will be important to be sure that all stickers are filled out with all of the information required.

Please remember that every person that is a STAFF member or OFFICIAL at this meet are VOLUNTEERS and are donating their time to make sure this meet happens. Let’s use a lot of Please’s and Thank You’s with these folks and make sure everything stays cordial throughout the meet. I do not anticipate any issues though as all of these folks volunteering are outstanding people!

There may be times when we need to call for more people to help time for certain races. We would like to ask that folks be willing to come down to the finish line to help time if we do end up making one of those calls.

Thank you all so much! We are looking forward to seeing you this Friday!

Story of the Phoenix

There is a bird that lays no eggs and has no young. It was here when the world began and is still living today, in a hidden, faraway desert spot. It is the phoenix, the bird of fire.

One day in the beginning times, the sun looked down and saw a large bird with shimmering feathers. They were red and gold–bright and dazzling like the sun itself. The sun called out, “Glorious Phoenix, you shall be my bird and live forever!”

Live forever! The Phoenix was overjoyed to hear these words. It lifted its head and sang, “Sun glorious sun, I shall sing my songs for you alone!”
