Don't forget about the Blocks!
When hosting a track meet one thing to never forget about are the starting blocks. If you are like most sites you have one complete set of eight blocks; if you are lucky you have a few backup sets. With this said, keeping up with them becomes very important. We suggest you assign a small group of volunteers to mind the blocks. This team will be charged with pulling them between each heat of the 400 meters (so finishers don't trip) as well as pulling them after the conclusion of each sprint event and transporting them to the general area of the next sprint event. Having the blocks in the correct location on the track before each sprint event throughout the meet will help you avoid unnecessary delays.
