Helpers needed at Track & Field Championships

It is coming around to the T & F championships again in May. While the County has a number of graded officials, it is ESSENTIAL that all clubs ESPECIALLY THOSE with a major commitment to T & F help by getting two or three of their members to offer to assist at the championships. In the recent past, we have had problems providing the necessary help for all the field events (where there is always need to have people to support the graded officials).
