Neads up on bib numbers:

oWe will use a "write-on" bib numbersystem where your athletes will use a sharpie/permanent marker and write anassigned bib number on their arm, wrist or somewhere to make finish linerecording easier.One thing that really

slows meets down is the recording process at the finish line.This expedites that situation.These bib numbers need to be LEGIBLE.
