Dear Coach,
You are invited to The Lake Hamilton Invitational Cross Country meet that will be on Saturday, Oct. 17th at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs. The course is all grass, no pavement or gravel, smooth running surface, great visibility, some hills, on site bathrooms, and site of the state cross country championships for 2015. We had nearly 1500 competitors last year and we are looking for similar or more participation this year so it should be a very competitive meet. Because our entries have gotten very large, we will separate into a varsity division and a Jr. Varsity division (JV) in the high school divisions. Under this format, a schools top 7 runners will compete in the varsity division and all others in the JV division. It is not permissible for a school to enter his top 7 runners in the JV division. Check the Lake Hamilton website for final updated time schedule.
** Dri-fit t-shirts will be sold for $20 each; note: we will have ladies fit shirts as well as mens fit.**

Time schedule: Jr.Boys 9:30, Jr. Girls 10:00, Sr. Boys (varsity) 10:30, Sr. Girls (varsity) 11:00, Sr. Boys (JV) 11:30, Sr. Girls (JV) 12:00.
Awards: Individual: Top 30 medals in the high school varsity and jr. high division. The top 5 in the JV divisions will receive medals.
Team Awards: Medals for top 7 individuals on winning teams in high school and jr. high. We will award top 7 medals for the top 5A-7A teams and the top A-4A teams in the high school division. There will not be a team award for the JV division.
Entries: We will be using Mile Split for online entries this year so you can go to: http://ar.milesplit.com/ to enter this meet. You will have to create an account if you dont already have one. You can go to user guide and help to get instructions on how to enter this meet. It is easy once you have set up an account. Many cross country track & field meets have been using this system for the last few years so you might have already used milsplit.com. Feel free to contact me if you are having any difficulties with this. Deadline to register is WEDNESDAY, OCT. 14 AT 7:00 A.M.

*Entry fee: $50 per team or $10 per individual. This fee covers varsity and JV divisions (they are considered one team). For example if you have full teams in all divisions you total cost will be $200. Entries fees are due on day of meet but also can be made online through mile split.
