Dear Storm Family,


I want to thank everyone who came to the meet this past weekend, This was the first time that the Northridge Pacers timed using Finishlynx system, I was working in the timing tent to help them learn the system, while we had a few hic-ups along the way, the few delays we ran into was not because of the timing, but rather other issues. I want to thank everyone for their patience, these timing systems are very technical. 




This week we will be going to the Valley United Striders Invitational meet at Palmdale High School. Click Here to download the meet flyer and schedule
