If you are a fan of the USATF-NE Grand Prix read onâ¦ If not, exit here ð
The Grand Prix LDRs (thatâs the long distance race representatives) have asked us to voice any opinions we have about the races that should be included in the âvoting slatesâ. So for that, Iâve posted the races which have bid to:
Iâm guessing some explanation is in orderâ¦ Iâll try my best.
The LDRs have to create a 2 to 3 âslatesâ of races for the wider membership to vote on. The goal is to have that vote completed by Thanksgiving. The idea of slates is to create a series that is diverse across the NE region and hits all the race types (5K, 5M, Marathon, etc) AND avoids important conflicts.
The worksheet, Iâve given you a link to, has all the races that bid, and at the top the sheet, some of the rules the LDRs need to consider when creating the slates.
The LDRs would like any feedback we (GLRR) have by Tuesday (11/7). I think for now all weâd want to supply would be âraces we likeâ. So, without worrying about the ârulesâ (weâll let the LDRs do the rules) â send me races you feel strongly about. Youâre not voting on the seriesâ¦ yet. So I donât need (or want) your full âslateâ. I just want the few races you feel âmustâ be in the GP.
Youâll need to get me that info by noon on Tuesday to be included.
