SEAN COLLIER INVITATIONAL April 19, 2014
Dear Coach, MIT will be hosting The Sean Collier Invitational for interested teams. The meet will be short (5 hours we hope), competitive and well run. Of course, we will be running Finish Lynx and getting results to you within minutes of the event. We plan on using the FieldLynx system as well to give you complete and immediate field event information. We are equipped with three wind gauges, which interface with Finishlynx. The two advantages our facility holds are that we can always sprint, hurdle and jump with the wind and we can run the LJ, TJ, SP, DT/HT for both men and women at the same time, which cuts down on the length of the meet. We can also warm up, and indoors if weather dictates, as well as conduct the pole vault, and the indoor track is adjacent to the outdoor track for easy access. ENTRY INFORMATION: Intent to participate is due as soon as possible. Final entries are due on April 15 via Direct Athletics. While scratches are permitted without penalty, no additions can be made after the 15th. ENTRY FEE: $10.00 per athlete, per event, ($300.00 maximum per team -men’s and women’s considered separate). Please make checks payable to MIT Track and bring the check or cash with you to the meet.
