Please be at Westview to pick your athlete up when the bus arrives! Please park in the student parking lot, not next to the red curb, the buses need the curbside parking.
All athletes will ride bus to and from meet. We are a team. We travel to the XC meets together and we travel home from the XC meets together. Athletes must have a lunch/dinner and bars/snacks plus a water bottle with them. It is advisable to have money as well. There are concessions. Warm sweats-top and bottom should be brought as the temperature could drop. The coaches do not need ill athletes in the beginning of the season!
From the Race Director:
Shuttle Bus Service: We will have 2 Yellow School Busses Running Non-Stop from the Korean War Memorial in Wilsonville (Next to Fry’s and Goodwill) from 5 PM until 10:30 PM.

We will have signs out on Wilsonville Rd directing folks to parking. The Wilsonville Police Department will be enforcing parking restrictions. If it says no parking, it means no parking….
