Has anyone heard about a new location for the State Track Meet? I had seen where the FHSAA quietly posted a press release on the main page of their website a couple of weeks ago. Now I see that all of the information for the State Meet on the track page is "TBD". I also noticed that when the ACC released their football schedule for the fall, that FSU has home games on both November 6 and 13 which would be one of the usual weeks of the State Cross Country Meet. The following week they are hosting the NCAA National Champs. Are we going to need to move venues for this year or does the state move the state series up a week?

I can't imagine they would end the season on Oct 30th instead and I really hope it not a new venue.

The date I've heard (on good authority) for the State Meet is Nov. 12 at ARP ...and yes, I know that's a Friday.

Friday morning instead of Saturday would work fine. We do that for State Track and other sports have championships spread throughout the week. My concern would be with lodging. Maybe as much as 75% of the participants and many parents would require lodging on Thursday night with an early Friday meet. Would lodging be available at the usual costs in the area? We know that on football weekends rooms are scarce at best, have much higher costs, and often require a 2 night minimum.

As much fun as the prognosticating is, I am going to file this under general grievances with the FHSAA and how slow they are to release information about anything.
