SCVAL Cluster Meet #3 (10/17/17) @ Baylands (3.1 miles)
Course Map - - Records: Boys/Team - Girls/Team
Shown at the end of this e-mail is the schedule for our third SCVAL meet on 10/17/17 along
with the job assignments for the coaches. I've also enclosed a map of the course.
Remember. The entry fee for cars is $6 per car. Buses must pay $20 if they intend to stay
onsite during the meet.
Pairs of portable garbage and bottle & can recyling containers will be made available for
our use near the finish line and near wherever I notice that the teams have camped. All
litter should be picked up by the various teams or I will have to do so after you leave.
Also, it would be nice if you would bring the portable garbage containers back to the area
opposite the finish line and near the road at the end of the meet. I will dump these portables
into large bins at the conclusion of the meet.
Do your best to not use the trash cans at the park. Stick with the portable garbage containers.
We have to pay $258 to a Sunnyvale employee to supervise me. So, if he/she gives you a
reasonable order, please comply.
When I met with the Sunnyvale environmental lady, I was told that the city of Sunnyvale
had a new concern this year regarding loose trash, especially plastic, and required me
to write a report about how we would take care of this potential problem throughout the
meet. My report noted that the coaches and their helpers would be vigilant throughout
the meet in looking for loose trash that might blow toward the bay and would immediately
pick up this loose trash.
Vehicles are not allowed off the asphalt roadways or parking lot areas. This includes
deliveries and set-up/tear-down vehicles. This order was emphatically stressed to me by
the park supervisor.
No stakes are allowed to be driven into the ground.
No tents are allowed as per the fire marshall.
No samall flags may be placed on the course to help guide the runners.
Portable toilets will be provided for our use at a cost of $600. They will be located
near the finish line. Regular toilet facilities are located at the park. I'm not sure
that we should be using them. However, coaches should check them every now and then to
verify that we are not making a mess of them. I will check these bathrooms at the end of
the meet, as I've done in past years, to insure that they are debris free.
