The time has come for us to finally put to rest who really brings the most speed to the table in Area 51: Fast Twitch or Bagpipe (others can participate as well, see below for details). Our Speed Showdown is set for Tuesday, August 27, at JM Robinson Middle School. UPDATED: Additional event by popular demand: 4×100 relay.
Date: Tuesday, August 27, rain or shine
Time: 0515 – 0600

Note: The track is west of the school and the athletic fields. There is a small parking lot in front of the athletic fields where you should park. If the lot is full when you arrive, you can park at the school and there is a path from the school to the fields, but please note it is about a 5 minute walk (potentially 7 minutes for SOBs – “Sons of Ballantyne”).
