Challenges You Had To Run A Successful Event:  

Finding volunteers, but was better than previous years

Some who ran events were not aware of rules, etc.

Many no-shows

Replacements for people – teacher will need to go with student when replacing, to verify age, etc.

 

Summary of Event: 

The event went very well, thanks to the many volunteers and schools each helping to run an event.  Many records broken!

 

Recommendations: 

Teacher to bring replacement athletes to event directly.

Keep schedule as was, as it seemed to fit well (ball throw, etc)

If an athlete will not run in the finals, come to let the cabin know so that the next best time can be substituted.

Challenges You Had To Run A Successful Event: • A small staff and student population made it difficult to find enough volunteers. • One student who was a race marshal gave participants of the midget and juvenile runners incorrect directions leading to confusion. Some students were frustrated that they did not run the same distance as others; some students ran farther than they had expected. A lot of time was spent looking for lost runners. • Couldn’t find a volunteer with knowledge of first aid. • There was some confusion with the finish time results because of difficulties with communication. • It is more difficult for runners to race fast times when there are few runners. More high schools should be encouraged to participate.

Weather à extremely cold at the beginning – we all stopped for 45 mins lunch break

The senior boys and girls played a best 2 of 3 since there were only 2 teams in each category.  At the junior level we played a round robin, semi-final and final

 

Recommendations: 

The tournament went well.  The students respected the calls.  The participation style worked extremely well.  Would like to do it again at BPS next year.  Had to keep a close eye on a NCHS student who needed extra supervision.
