Bill Roe All-Comers Track & Field Series
Year 51 is over halfway done!
And we remind you that Shoreline Stadium is in the banana belt of north King County. And that in over 50 years of all-comers meets, we have NEVER cancelled a meet due to inclement weather. Even the day it was 103-degrees in Seattle and a fire on Lake Ballinger with a southerly wind…
2019 Meet Dates
May 29; June 5, 12, 19, 26; July 3, 10, 17, 24, 31; August 7, 14
Shoreline Stadium • 18560 - First Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155
(The stadium is actually at the corner of NE 185th Street and Fifth Ave NE)
Our gate manager for the last 18 years or so, Rex Philpott, unexpectedly passed away on June 14, 2018. His dedication, warm smile, good humor, and organizational skills were an asset to us, and he became a good friend to the series and to Club Northwest, handling registration at the Magnuson Series and Winter Grand Prix as well. Wherever his soul has gone to rest, he'll soon be in charge of the entry gate! We will miss you, Rex! On August 15, 2018, we dedicated a plush chair named for Rex which will be at the entry gate in future years -- that way, he will always be on duty!
Enter at the gate on the west side of the stadium. All event sign-ups are taken on site. Look for signs to the event sign-up area. If an event form is no longer at the table it has moved to the clerk's tent. Kids do not need to sign-up at the entry desk; they pick up "kid's tags" for each event (maximum of four). Kids events are for ages 14 and under. All other entries will be classified as open. All participants must complete a USATF waiver before entry. Forms for adults are here. Forms for minors are here. Entry fees may be paid online or at the gate. (If you pay online Wednesday before the meet, you must bring a receipt of the transaction.)
Youth and Seniors (over 55) $6
CNW members $5
Immediate family $30 Check the registration page for our definition of family.
Group rates for large clubs and teams also available. Ask at the entry gate or by email.
Youth and Seniors $36
CNW members $30
meet results & electronic timing
We post each meet’s results before the next one and sometimes within a day or two. We also hope to complete more years prior to 1999, but will need volunteer help in getting it done. All years 1999-present are currently online. Note that only the older kids in the youth events are started with a gun, which is required for electronic timing, but all high school, open, and masters' events 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, mile, and hurdle events are timed electronically. We sometimes run out of adequate light late in the meet, so our 3000m and 5000m races are often hand-timed.
We often mix special events into the evening’s schedule. We reserve the right to alter the time schedule to fit them in appropriately.
Watch for this section to develop as plans are made for 2019!
HELPERS & VOLUNTEERS
We need clerks, field event judges, starters, timers, finish pickers, computer folks – everything! If you can attend eight or more meets, we can even offer you a small stipend for your assistance. Ask us, or go to the volunteer page and sign in.
For the entire summer (including the USATF Pacific Northwest meets, if held) we also honor the top five overall high-performance results. The latter prizes are based on season-best performances using IAAF Scoring Tables. At least five athletes, with at least one of each gender, with the top series performances will be awarded gift certificates, cash, or both.
HURDLES & THROWING events
Due to time constraints, we offer only 100-meter and 110-meter hurdles on odd-numbered weeks, using open spacing only. Heights can be 30 or 33 inches for the 100-meter event, and 39 or 42 inches for the 110-meter event. The 100-meter hurdles are only available using the high school and open women's marks -- youth girls placement is not marked at Shoreline. We offer 400-meter hurdles on even-numbered weeks and, with enough advanced notice, can offer the master's 300-meter hurdles, which use the settings and hurdle marks for open hurdles. We cannot hold the high school 300-meter hurdles because hurdles are set at different marks for that event.
We provide limited implements for throwing events. You may bring your own. If you claim a record or qualifying mark of any type, your personal implement will be impounded until certified. We ask that you only throw the implement designed under USATF rules for your age!
