We received feedback when we tried to do this last year that the process was difficult, the timing was bad and while people really liked the concept it was a challenge for teams to participate. In an attempt to provide a fun, quality relay competition, we have made the following changes to make the meet more appealing to teams.
1. There will be no qualifying process. Teams will be entered on a first entries sent in process, until the meet is full. The qualifying process created much of the confusion. This will now be just a normal meet entry.
2. We have moved the meet to an earlier date (June 25) to avoid the very busy month of July.
3. We are asking any team that plans on attending this meet to please email firstname.lastname@example.org prior to May 15, so that we can judge interest. Due to a lack of teams submitting entries last year we had to cancel the meet. Shortly after canceling, several teams indicated their displeasure as they had planned on coming but had not submitted an entry yet.
4. All questions can also be submitted to the email address above.
