Club Northwest would like to welcome you to the
24TH ANNUAL SPRING BREAK OPEN TRACK & FIELD MEET
Featuring the Dan Ghormley Memorial 1500-meter Runs, the Bev LaVeck Memorial Race Walks, and the Jeremy Scully Memorial Pole Vault
Saturday, March 30, 2013 • 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Historic West Seattle Stadium • Seattle, Washington Co-hosted by Western Washington University
The Spring Break Open Track & Field Meet has been a fixture on the Seattle late-March track & field scene since 1989, when it debuted at West Seattle Stadium. It has been held at Shoreline, Edmonds, and Kings, and – for 2011 only – helped celebrate the final year of track & field at historic Husky Stadium. For 2013, we will provide electronic timing. Our entries are being handled on-line ONLY. Limited day-of-meet entries will be taken ONLY in events where a new entry will NOT cause a new section of the event to be required.
All team entries are due by Wednesday, March 21, at directathletics.com, allowing us to use the TFRRS system. Minimum donations for teams and individuals will be collected as you enter. Athletes arriving before the team payment will be expected to make their own donation. There will be NO entry via e-mail or general mail – but if you have problems, e-mail us, and we’ll make sure you can compete! As with the meet in 2011 and 2012, there will be a limited number of entry slots open on meet day, ONLY in those events where we can run more folks without creating chaos or additional heats. In 2012, a third of our events were closed to day-of-meet entries. IF YOU ARE PRE-ENTERED, we will accommodate you and create heats as necessary. IF YOU WAIT UNTIL MEET DAY, you may not get in your event(s).
This meet was founded to support college teams who did not have the resources to stage meets during their spring break. This is billed as an OPEN meet, generally defined as post-high school teens to late 30s. We will endeavor to accommodate all master’s athletes, but all variations of master’s hurdle races may not be possible. Where possible, we will hold separate master’s sections in track events. This meet is open to athletes 18-years old or older, and to 17-year old athletes who are competing and eligible for a college team. This includes club team members!
We always need all the help we can get! Volunteers are treated to food during the meet. Split shifts are often available for those who can’t work the entire meet. Some limited paid positions are available in key areas.
For teams to enter, the minimum donation per team per gender will be $75, or $7 per individual per event, and $10 per relay team, whichever is less. All college and university teams are welcome, but club teams must be member organizations of USATF or Athletics Canada in order to be listed as an affiliation. Individuals will need to make a minimum donation of $5 to register, plus $2 per individual event. No unattached relays will be permitted. Any slots available on meet day will need to make a minimum donation of $10 per athlete plus $3 per event. Funds collected support Club Northwest’s teams. Registration is at: http://www.directathletics.com/ meets/track/29018.html, where you will need to log-in.
We ask for a nominal minimum admission donation for all Club Northwest events – we put on a very nice “show” and we think folks should be willing to pay for it! Funds collected support Club Northwest’s teams.
WEIGH-IN We hold weigh-in for all implements at the site beginning at 8 a.m. The location which is generally at the storage unit near the hammer throw area will be clearly signed.
If it’s a nice day, there will be issues with parking – sorry, we can’t help much! On a nice spring day, golfers will flock to the adjacent West Seattle Golf Course, and most available parking in the main lot will be gone by ten a.m. There is a dirt lot just to the south of the entry which is the secondary parking, but it may not be opened for the spring yet. Please make sure you park legally wherever you end up!

We will attempt to make first, second, and final calls for each track event, and first and final calls for field events. Athletes may begin to check in earlier for their events, so long as they go back and scratch if they change their mind! • First call means athletes can report to the clerk for assignment or to the field event area for warmup. • Second call is the last chance to check in for a track event before the event begins – you must check in by this time! • Final call is when we put athletes at the start or beginning the field event – it is too late to check in at this point!
