Please have Terry get this info out on social media. Lots of people would be impacted.

I am told by an official that nothing has been decided officially yet. They are currently at the course making a decision. There is said to be 2 feet of water on parts of the course.

NXN? sort of has a ripple affect on Ohio kids and teams wouldn't you think?

So, they know there will be lightning? NEVER had a race cancelled because of rain and I ran at Notre Dame once where a corner had over 30" of water.

Hotels give refunds and/or just extend the reservation until next week right?

All of a sudden the course matters for the state meet?

Wow....i feel that is if conditions are unsafe for runners you dont do it. A few feet of water doesnt sound like a reason to postpone a state championship.

Its CC.....run the race

Anyone who ran at Mason Inv. is experienced at running in water.

Rattling. I would really like to see the course. Way back during Watkins this year, the runners ran through a river. Very surprised but Iím sure they had a valid reason to do so.

This largely effects NXN and possible tapering. Will be very interesting to see what happens. Adds a brand new element to it. Thatís for sure.

Nike Midwest regional at Terre Haute is next weekend. I got a notice yesterday that ten more individuals have been added to the mix. We're talking about affecting kids lives and hurting their chances of getting college scholarships.

For what it's worth, NTR no longer has a date for the meet on their website

This is awful for kids this year - particularly the top end kids (Ewert, Smith, Mauri, etc.) who likely have plans to roll at NXR, NXN, etc. I wonder if any will skip the state meet in favor of Terre Haute? I'm thinking those kids whose teams didn't qualify. I mean, which would you pick, assuming the national meet is a real possibility?

Perhaps this will be the final push to move the state meet to a new location. One can hope.

contact the OHSAA

What about contacting the OHSAA or the OATCCC to suggest alternatives.

This is not okay. People plan their entire training / season etc around this.

Next Friday? Next Thursday? Something other than Saturday of next week?

Other venue?

The OHSAA needs to clarify what's happening. ASAP. National trail has removed the Nov. 10th part from their web site post, and also appears to have taken down the facebook post announcing the postponement.

Many of us have tons of logistical considerations to deal with if the date is moved. We need official word.

Call me cynical, but I wonder if the course is the real issue, or if the parking areas are the main concern.

IMHO, do everything you can to get the meet in on Saturday. Biggest problem to me is that the lion's share of the athletes peaked for last week. I'd hate to have them try to hold onto whatever form they still have for an additional week which puts them 2 weeks past their peak.

The OHSAA has contacts at OSU. Why not move it to the Scarlet and Gray golf course or the Agricultural Center where they ran the state meet in the past?

agreed. My guess is that this will be a straw on the camels back in regards to moving this meet. Having a state championship at a drag strip is a poor choice.

Why did Finishtiming and National Trail announce that it was moved to 11/10 before any decision has been made? I already adjusted my hotel reservations and now it may not be moved after all?

Finishtiming---any updates? Our team is planning to go up this afternoon to check the course out. Curious if they are going to keep teams off the course today even if the meet stays on for this Saturday.
