Deadline extended for regular-fee entry to Oshkosh nationals
Gary Snyder, chairman of the USATF Masters Track & Field Committee, writes: “Would you let folks know (the) deadline for entry without late charge (is) extended to Monday 6/15.2009 5:00 PM Eastern time.” This means that you can enter the Oshkosh masters nationals without having to pay a late fee until 5 p.m. Right Coast time Monday. I think the previous deadline for regular-fee entry was Friday. The drop-dead deadline for signing up for Oshkosh remains 5 p.m. Eastern time June 19 — this coming Friday. If you enter after Monday, you pay a late fee of $50. As a result of the economy, the National Senior Games in California and other pricey meets — Lahti and the World Masters Games in Australia — all meets stand to suffer smaller-than-usual fields.
