Again this year: We will be presenting place ribbons as opposed to participation ribbons as mandated by Special Olympics rules. Award areas for presentation of ribbons immediately after all running events can be found on attached map. Ribbons for all field events will be mailed out after the event. It is extremely important that all athletes run in their assigned heats there will be no changing of heats allowed. Please help out by making everyone involved with your teams aware of this
Parade/ Opening Ceremonies: Begin at 9:20 Teams please line up at end of track near registration (bring posters identifying teams if you have some)
Day of Event: ONE PERSON FROM EACH TEAM SHOULD Sign in beginning at 8:15 am we will be set up near the end of track as marked on enclosed map. When you arrive you will receive a packet containing a letter, names tag for athletes (already filled out), name tags for coaches and chaperones, additional copies of map (please copy and make maps available to all coaches and people who will be bringing athletes ahead of their arrival) and a copy of your registration.
AGAIN THIS YEAR- Athletes will be lining up in staging tents not at starting lines (see map)
There will be concessions available for athletes, families, and coaches to buy snacks, lunch items, and drinks. There will be an activity area for athletes to help pass the time between events.
We are selling Event Shirts this year -- they are not dated (so timeless!) There will be a limited selection at the games but you can sign up here to have your size and order ready for easy pick up!
PLEASE Remember that this event is for our athletes and being flexible is the key to have it be successful for everyone; many people are volunteering their time and energy. Please feel free to contact Meredith Verrill @ MVerrill@bonnyeagle.org if you have any questions about the facilities or events.
NEW: This year you may sign up online or by paper sign ups
If you do online sign ups you do not need to send a printed copy
