EAGLE CLASSIC RELAYS
Thank you for accepting the invitation to the eighteenth annual Eagle Classic Relays. This early season meet is intended to allow competitors an opportunity to compete in a relay setting against athletes of their own grade level. We have tried to keep this a "full team" meet by inviting relatively few schools, and offering a flat entry fee per school. The meet should be an enjoyable day for all, with many of your athletes returning home with awards.
DATE: Friday, April 15, 2011
PLACE: West Valley High School, Cottonwood
TIME: Field Events – 1:00pm Running Events – 1:30pm

ENTRY FEES: $300.00 per school or $10.00 per relay. Entry fees must be paid on the day of the meet. NO CHECK, NO RUN!. Please make checks payable to: West Valley Track. Any questions, contact Scott Fairley at: Phone # 530-243-4331 (home) email: email@example.com
ENTRIES: All entries must be done online at: www.athletic.net See instructions attached. The close of entries will be Monday, March 21 at 10:00pm. If you feel your relay team deserves a preferred lane, do your best to estimate a seed time for this time of year, and enter an “override” seed mark.
RELAY TEAMS: Each athlete may compete in any four events. Let me know if you have an extra relay team; we may be able to fit them in if it doesn't add a heat. Field event relays will consist of three athletes. However, you do not need three competitors to enter a team.
SEEDING: Entries will be seeded and posted on our web site at: http://track.wvhs.auhsd.net If you have any changes or corrections to make, call Scott Fairley at (530) 243-4331 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
