Deadline looms for San Diego Senior Olympics, lone ’09 meet
Point Loma Nazarene University — with its beautiful track overlooking the blue Pacific — is again the venue for the San Diego Senior Games. But the registration deadline is fast approaching. It’s August 31 for the September 12 meet You can download the entry forms and stuff at this site. Unlike the National Senior Games, this meet offers hurdle races (short and long), and the guy in charge is no slouch. He’s Dixon Farmer, an Occidental College legend and former national hurdles champion. He’s also been the on-field interviewer at the Mt. SAC Relays and other high-profile meets. USATF’s event calendar notes that this is a USATF-sanctioned event, so any records set should pass muster with the powers-that-be. It’s also the only masters meet this season in San Diego County, since the Chuck McMahon Memorial Meet, traditionally hosted by the San Diego Track Club, bit the dust this year. No McMahon meet. And no San Diego-Imperial USATF Association Masters Championships either. Great job, SDI!
