Temporary Seating at LS :)
This year, the staff at Lone Star are sectioning off two rows of seating in the center of the natatorium to insure parents get "the best seat in the house" during their child’s event. How will this work you ask? We will have parent volunteers monitoring these rows and reminding others that these are not all day seats. Having this section will allow for parents who are camped outside, or sitting in the nosebleeds (anywhere really) to have a place to sit for their child’s race instead of standing in front of the first rows.
This is something new, and it will take some adjustment, but we are the biggest team and we can set a great tone for everyone else. As long as we are all respectful of these seats and the amazing volunteers who are working there, it can be a great solution to past problems.
We all know that the actual best seats in the house are the timing seats, but if sitting on that little precipice of land is not your idea of fun, you will soon have the opportunity to have the second best seats in the house. We will need volunteers during the Saturday afternoon session to help monitor this new "temporary viewing seating." If you are monitoring this area, then you get to have one of these precious seats for the Saturday afternoon session. Keep an eye on your email for the signup genius that will be coming. Thanks!
