**2. The Steeplechase, Hammer and (javelin) events cannot be contested in any of our meets because they are not accepted by the National Federation
As acceptable events. We cannot compete in these events in our invitationals or dual meets. If we want to have these events acceptable, we need to have our section commissioners address this at their committee meetings. There can be negative reprocussions to our state if we compete in these events.
**4. There is discussion that needs to be continued as to whether we want to keep the qualifying for the 800 Finals at the State Meet as a 3 or 4 heat event.
Due to the weaker standard, this is one of the largest fields in the meet.
Last year, they put the slowest qualifier in the same lane, behind the fastest qualifier instead of creating a 4th heat. What do you think? We need to discuss this at our track meeting in January.

The presentations will be made during the break where the 2 mile
