The All-Comers for January 25th is being cancelled due to the current and anticipated weather. We will still hold meets the next 3 Fridays

Due to a problem with our LJ/TJ runway we will not be able to hold those events at our Friday night meets. I appologize for any problems this may cause.

Due to weather here in Riverside, The Rubidoux all-comers meet for tonight, 2/8/13, has been cancelled. If you are still in need of a meet this weekend check the calendar for teh all-comers meets on Saturday.

Keith,

If it weren't for bad luck you guys would have none on these meets. Hopefully the weather starts to cooperate a little!

Thanks Doug! It was actually hailing at Rubidoux in 5:00 when the meet was supposed to start. Would have been miserable here to put on or compete in a meet. Glad that you had decent weather and a good turnout down in Temecula on Saturday morning.

Please keep in mind that championship meets at all levels, NFHS, NCAA, USATF and IAAF are sometimes contested in rain, hail, snow and most wind. Usually only thunder and lightening halt the events at least temporarily.

While not ideal conditions, practicing in adverse conditions is a wise method to prepare your athletes for such conditions. Too often, athletes are unprepared and often take lower places compared to those athletes who are mentally/physically prepared.

Championship meets NEED to be run to determine championships. All-comers meets in early February in a 45 degree hail/rain storm do not.

While all comers meets do not need to be run in bad conditions, can you say your athletes are prepared for such conditions?

From my observation, many an athlete at all levels of the sport are not prepared. I officate maybe 30 meets a year all over the country and see this first hand.

The athlete that can perform in the rain, hail, snow and wind is going to win out over someone who cannot deal with it.
