@WSWFC Meet Director emailed me as well and said it could not happen this year. He was heartbroken as you can imagine. Coach Max has been in charge of that meet for as long as I can remember.

@Beaudreau_Mike It looks like Florida is opening up and relaxing their restrictions. Can you use your political powers and convince them to move the meet to Florida for this year?

@coachtigue ha ha ha. It's funny you mention that because I am trying that exact tact. Though, I certainly am being realistic in the chances and I'd prefer we offer for it to be hosted here in GA. It would also be more central for everyone in the South Region. With Nationals being cancelled for both Nike and Footlocker, it would be the best one could hope for.

@Beaudreau_Mike Birmingham might be another option. Great American moved there for a year or two before going back to Cary. I think it was at Hoover or Spain Park, I forgot which.

Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but with nationals cancelled I'm not sure I see the point in trying to save any of the regional races. Why not focus on giving the kids some track races after state since they missed the spring season? I'm sure some would love to see what they can do in the 1600 and/or 3200 this November. In terms of saving footlocker nationals, it was hosted in Orlando for four years. I think from 1998-2001? Not 100% sure. It wouldn't be a true nationals as many states have postponed their seasons, but you could get many still. Or footlocker could move their race to March if they wanted.

If we do get the meet moved to GA, Chattahoochee Hills Eventing would be a great place to host it.

One of the questions I saw asked didn't receive an answer I believe. Perhaps I missed it. What about the Meet of Champions? Is that going to happen? A follow up question...if not the Meet of Champions...is there anything that we can offer here in the State of Georgia as an option for a post-season race?

I think some sort of 5K opportunity here in Georgia would be great. Think about if a kid has to quarantine and misses state or one of the races where they wanted to PR. Or the races that have been canceled. Don’t know if a track race would make up for it or be as motivating in that case. Something to replace FL would be awesome. Some opportunity to PR or show what you can do.

@acarr6453 MOC would need to be at least a couple weeks after State to be "stout". Week after is too soon after state.

@BlackJack31 Agree! Maybe the date can be moved since no NXR OR FL-South?
