ISSUE #18-2003
Wednesday, July 9, 2003



Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Langley Track facility will not be suitable for the Championships this weekend, and the meet will be MOVED to Rotary Stadium in Abbotsford.
The starting time on both days will be delayed by one hour. (eg: Midget Women’s Hammer at 11:00 am, now becomes 12:00 noon) The reason for this change is to try to accommodate any athletes, who may not have received this information, to still arrive from Langley in time for their event.
Please share this bulletin with everyone coming to the Championship event this weekend.
The Mustangs want to apologize to everyone for this inconvenience. In addition, Jane and Gerry Swan and the Valley Royals deserve applause for their support and accommodation during this time of great stress!
Directions to Rotary Stadium: From #1 Freeway, take exit 87 (Clearbrook Road). Go North on Clearbrook Road, right on Maclure Road, and left on Trethewey. Enter stadium at Gate 1.

Cross Country Training Camp
From Frank Reynolds: 
Get a jump start on the upcoming Cross-country season. I know it is early but plans are unfolding for our first ever NorWester/West Van Track Club's Joint Cross Country Training Camp at Whistler BC from August 25 - 28, 2003. This camp follows our very successful Spring Break Camp and promises to provide each high school athlete with tools to improve their performance in cross-country. Registration is limited so set those dates aside and email if you are interested. You will be kept abreast of details of the camp, meals accommodation, transportation and camp cost as they are worked out. We would like to see a good representation of North Shore High School athletes attend so the support of High School coaches is encouraged. Depending on the number of campers taking part, we may have a few rooms available for parents who would like to spend a few days at the site of 2010 and breathe in some of the excitement that will be brewing in Whistler. Stay tuned.
