before the start. The basic walk rule is rather casual: power-walk with one foot on the
ground at all times. We are not following IAAF/championship rules such as advancing
leg shall be straightened (no bent knee). Track awards immediately follow the 800m race
walk. Participants should check-in prior to 10:15AM for all field events. The standing
long jump will be conducted first at 10:35AM, and then the remaining four events at
11AM will all run in parallel.

Volleyball:
Co-ed sixes draw tourney. Sign up as an individual, teams will be drawn at random,
with considerations including position, age, and gender. The goal will be to form as
balanced teams as possible for enjoyable competition. Teams will play a round-robin with medals
awarded to winners. We then plan to conduct another draw to form new teams for
variety and play another round, with additional medals awarded.
