Cross Country Cookouts for after the meets
Post race meals.
After the races at each meet our team has to wait for the meet hosts to
compute the meet results. After the results are figured the host
traditionally has an awards ceremony. It is oftern a long
wait. We have found that the best use of our runners' and
family's time is to have a post race meal. Over the years we have
found stopping at a restaurant is slow and probably not the cheapest or
best food. When sometimes as many as 200 buses of runners are
trying to stop at the same handful of restaurants it can make a meet
time take an additional 2 hours. The runners' parents have been
kind enough to have a cookout at the races. This helps everyone
get more family time. Thank you!
