Dave Robertson, Rick Copland and I are tri-chairing the Rotary Track and Field Day for the Assabet Valley Boys and Girls Club on July 17th from 2:30-4:30. They are so excited about this event and already have 50 kids signed up but expect 75 or so. Dave has CORI forms and they will attend the July 13th Rotary meeting. Please let Sharon Spaulding know if you can attend.

We hope you can all attend to help out and be judges. Here are the details:

1) Rick will help mark out 50 and 100 yard dash markers for two fields- he has cones and markings, etc.

2 )Steve Levitsky will call out all the races and announce the winners after each race- Steve lets discuss a sound system.

3) The races will be burlap bag race, 3 legged race, 50 yard dash, 100  yard dash, egg on spoon, water balloon toss and perhaps wheelbarrow or 200 yard dash

4)Each race will be called by age category – 6 and 7 year olds, 8 and 9  year olds, 10 and 11 year olds, 12 and 13 year old and 14 and 15 year olds

5) There will be three judges per race and each will have a card that says 1, 2 or 3 and will be handed to the child that comes in first, second or third place

6) The child brings that to another volunteer who gives them their trophy or ribbon. Dave is building a platform for the winners and Steve will announce them for each race. All get a participant ribbon. So the winners will be each race, not at the end as that would take too long.

7) Dave is getting water, chip and oranges and watermelon

Any questions please ask Dave, Rick or I and we really hope you can attend!
