The meet was hosted by the Twilight Throwers and USATF New England.The LOC consisted of Twilight Throwers Founder & President, Jim Chamberas, Co-meet Directors Bob Cedrone and myself.
Overall, the feedback has been positive. We know there are things we can improve upon and we welcome your feedback. The LOC will be getting together to review the weekend and will address what feedback we receive.
I did not include the CTTP nor Women’s 300 Exhibition as those were not part of the Championships themselves. I will update those on a separate email later.
For those interested in purchasing additional T-Shirts, including the meet logo and the “Throw Wicked Far” or the “Throw, it’s what we do!” logos, I am working with the vendor to get info on how to purchase directly thru him.
The photographer took almost 4,500 pics and will be going thru them to get them available for purchase. I will send his website information when he has that available. I have seen a few samples and he captured the feel of the weekend….I am calling it a THROWFEST!
The LOC would like to thank ALL those who joined us this weekend. Family, Friends and even Throwers helped moved the two days along.
[We had] 97 entries. Saturday ending 1 hour AHEAD of schedule and Sunday ending 45 minutes AHEAD of schedule. Incredible.
Thanks again to the Officials who donated their time to us. They must really LOVE us Throwers! Nicole Bullock, Thank You!!!
Jerry Bookin-Weiner deserves a round of thanks for being the one who helped us get this approved. I really appreciate your guidance.
Coach Jim Kavanagh and theÂ entire staff at the College of the Holy Cross really stepped up and was there until we packed up and drove away on Sunday. What a great facility. What great people.Â
And one last Special Thanks to our Spouses. Barbara, Robin and Cathy. Thank you for sharing your husbands over the past 8 months. We will now focus on you (Oh, the Throw-A-Thon is on September 6th, in case I didn’t put it on the family calendar!).
So, look over the results and be proud of your efforts! We hope to see you all throwing together soon!
