We will have free parking in Lot 6 (corner lot on Fruitvale and South College Circle) and along the tennis courts on S. College Circle. All other Lots require the purchase of a daily permit ($2 in quarters only). * Sports Basement. Once again, Sports Basement is our sponsor for the Relays. Be sure to stop by and visit the tent/booth that will be set up on the infield on Saturday. This year, in addition to having 15% off coupons available, they will also have a number of items for sale on site. including spikes, watches, and other accessories. The Sports Basement would also like to help you with your team fundraising. They will have flyers at the meet with more information about it. I think that about covers it. for now. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. The website should also be able to answer any questions you may have. www.gowestvalley.com We look forward to having everyone there. Lets hope for some great weather all weekend.
