California indoor meet open to masters? Maybe

A posting today on the Track & Field News message board suggests that “open” athletes (and this can include masters) would be able to compete in an indoor meet Jan. 16, 2006, at the Save Mart Center at Fresno State University. This is good news for folks tuning up for Boston masters nationals in March, since California masters rarely get a chance to run on an indoor track in these parts. (Wasn’t always so. The late Sen. Alan Cranston used to be among masters sprinters competing in exhibition events in San Diego and Los Angeles. ) Anyhoo, I’ll bird-dog this, and report back on what events masters will be eligible for at the Jan. 16 meet.

    I wouldn’t count on any masters getting in the meet. When Coach Fraley told us about it last summer, he made a big deal about how elite and select it was going to be. He talked about fields of like 6 people at both the college and open levels.
    Maybe some of the other events will have larger fields, or maybe they will have some masters only events… just don’t get your hopes up too high yet.
