USATF Update

I heard from Jim, who sent the paperwork in for Falls Road to be "re-affiliated" as a USATF member, and he said the woman in charge of it has been out due to a death in the family. I will follow up tomorrow and we should have it straightened out by the end of the weekend.

Here is what I know, BEFORE you register for anything:

All athletes entering as part of a club must be affiliated with that club as part of their USATF membership (an athlete's current affiliation can be viewed in his/her membership profile and as part of the online entry process). Athletes wishing to change affiliations can make such a request through their local Association (note that this request must be made by the athlete--see Regulation 7 in the USATF Governance Manual, Section III).

So while I'm sure we can get it done after the fact, it will be much easier if everyone is registered as a member of Falls Road, and then registers for the race. From there, I can designate scorers for A and B teams (if we have that many), etc.

Stay tuned...

I don't know if it's self imposed, but on the georgetown site they are saying that there is a deadline of 1/16 to register. so, we need to figure out some plan by the beginning of next week.

Register for the race???

No, that's not accurate.

We'll want to sign up for the RACE before 1/30 as it is only $30 for the race (geez, last year it was $25). After 1/30 and before 2/2 it goes up to $55, and after that it is $75. So if you haven't registered by the end of the month, probably don't do it at all.

I'll have it taken care of by Monday, unfortunately a lot of it is out of my hands right now.
