Track Uniform
Children should wear their Kare Soccer jersey and shorts.

General Information
Children are split up into different divisions based on their speed and ability, and will compete with children of similar speed and ability. Each child will be allowed to enter a maximum of ten events. When a child places in two events, they are “retired” and
may not win more awards until everyone in the division has won at least one award. They can then compete again for one
more award. Children will be competing in a variety of events, including races (100m, 50m hurdles) as well as field events (softball throw, high jump). Upon arriving, children should assemble with their division (look for your coach) on the field. 

Admission Cost
Admission will be charged for all spectators ($5.00, maximum of $10.00 per family). There is no charge for parking.

Team Scoring
Track points are kept for each team. A child earns 5 points for his team for first place, 3 points for second and 2 points for third.
The competition will be between Arcadia, Covina and Upland areas with Upland’s score pro-rated (due to fewer members).

Food Available
Pizza, chips and drinks will be available at the track meet.

Driving Directions to Charter Oak High School
Charter Oak High School is located 1/2 mile from Russell Park in Covina. The parking lot is located off of Covina Blvd., 1/4 mile east of Glendora Ave. Cypress St.

The Rest of the Story…Miss Neef

It was on the occasion of that celebration that Tom learned THE REST OF THE STORY. For shortly after the guest of honor had arrived, the guest of honor arrived. And the mystery of Miss Neef’s boundless energy was not a mystery anymore. For twelve years, Tom was certain his secretary was doing the work of two. Instead, two secretaries were doing the work of one, so efficiently for twelve years, that Tom never suspected. Two sisters, sharing the same job. Each worked half time and split the paycheck. They were identical twins.

The Rest of the Story…The Missing Bullet

The victim’s name was Bill. Bill was shot at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, in 1901. On exhibition at the exposition, apparently unknown to the doctors and not far from the scene of the shooting, was a new invention, a revolutionary device that could have helped saved Bill called the X-ray machine. That machine, so near and yet so far, was operable, and would most certainly have located the fatal bullet. Instead, Bill, President William McKinley, died with the assassin’s bullet inside. And now you know…the rest of the story.
