So how do we convince the old guard to change the course to a better course? Convincing the old guys that control the state is going to be difficult... If you are in the state you know the 5 or so coaches that can get things done. Talked with one yesterday and he got upset with the idea of it being moved. We know Panorama or Pole Green (lower course) could have a great meet with a fair course. Both locations already host meets larger than the state meet, so they clearly can handle it.
This all being said I'm not knocking meet management. They do a great job. Results fast, everyone is informed, etc. Just think the kids would have so much of a better experience at a course that allows people to cheer them on.
