    I *think* it's to help out the 3200 kids and save them from running at the hottest part of the day like in previous years.

    Confirm and post the darn wild cards. The meet will be very competitive. It should take the next step and take winners only from each classification (NPA, NPB, as well as Public Group 1,2,3,4).

    6 Automatic Qualifiers in individual events. Top 13 performances from each site in each individual event. This would make 32 in each event. 4 heats of 8 in the one loop races.

    6 Automatic Qualifiers in Relay events. Top 13 performances from each site as well. Why not match the Individual events with the relay numbers. Again 4 heats of 8 in the 4 by 1 and the 4 by 4. Two heats of 16 in the 4 by 8.

    Oh, and finally could they please jump the Long Jump and Triple Jump in seeded flights. The Open Pit is terrible. Kids wait in line forever. Seed the flights at all levels of the States (Sectional, Groups, Meet of Champions). Seeded flights jump last.

    Why is it that the MOC final results have not been posted to the Milesplit? The upload for trials was immediate. There was even a guy physically present from the site.

    It is 2 days later and results have still not been updated for many of the sprints. NBN is this week. Let’s make sure our NJ athletes get placed in the right flights/sections based on season PRs.

    @option24 to take heat winners from each group is it a good idea. Many groups have athletes who wouldn’t even make a final or even top 10 in other groups. As such it wouldn’t be a fair representation of the talent present in NJ.

    Your other suggestions are out of my wheel house for comment.

    However the jumpers being placed in flights based on group meet results is an good idea. Only problem is that open pit allows athletes who have multiple events can handle those and come back without penalty.
