Dear Shore AC Teammates:
As I hope you all know, the New Jersey International Meet is back on the schedule,
after a year's absence due to the Covid situation, and will be held this coming
Saturday, August 7th, at the excellent Peddie School track stadium in
Hightstown, NJ, easily accessible off the NJ Turnpike Exit 8 and other major
highways and byways.
This will be the 34th annual. Action is listed from 1 pm to
about 5 pm and we want urge you all, one and all,
to take part....It is full of terrific events - many of which are named for the
greats of the sport - and will be staged in two divisions - Open/Masters,
as well as Elite...There is something in it for everybody and, most importantly,
this is our own meet, organized, directed and staged by our own
Shore AC teammates.
Mr. Dave Friedman is the meet director, Mr. Tim Brennan is the site director,
Mr. Joe Compagni joins us on the Games Committee, and
I am the Meet Director Emeritus. To make the meet the success we want it to be,
we absolutely want to see you as part of it...Even if you're not in super tip-top shape,
doesn't matter. Most important thing is to just be there to support your club, your
teammates and the all-important cause of making this a quality event.
