Relays
Relay line ups can change, because line-ups are based on fastest times amongst all PASA sites.  If there is a change, the coaches will contact you and let you know.  
If you are an alternate for a relay, we will contact you by noon of the day of the relay to let you know if you will be needed.
 
Parent Help - PASA-DKS is in charge of timing.  Please sign up on the job signup on the event's page
We do not think a team tent will be needed at the meet since the stands are covered.

It is forecasted to be a wet weekend.
