        Thanks to Tim Moe who donated his time to run the timing system which was borrowed to us from the Crookston School District.
        Thanks to all of the volunteers who showed up on Saturday morning to help run the event.  We couldn't have done it without you.
        Gift boxes were given to each athlete as they finished.  Attached to them were surveys on how they liked the experience and how we can make it better.  The overwhelming reply was they enjoyed the event and will be looking forward to next year.  Which leads to my overall comment on the event, "Phew, the first one is in the books, now to start planning for next year."  During the event we were gathered information from the athletes and volunteers and will use all of their suggestions in improving next year's event.  We've already put in our order for the exact same weather for next year.  Our fingers are crossed.
        Train hard and have fun.
