Due to increasing entries, we are having to be incredibly strict about numbers in each of the A groups, and I have had to "demote" several athletes to the B group for either or both throws in each match. I have tried to do this as fairly as possible by taking previous performances into account as well as age group standards, but I have noticed that several athletes have ignored the start lists and have asked the officials to add their name to the A group list. Please remain in the group to which you've been assigned, as published on the start lists prior to the event.
I know it's frustrating for you to only get two throws, but if our officials refuse to officiate because we aren't sticking to the rules that they have put in place, then there won't be any throws at all, for any group! If you feel you have been unfairly demoted, then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss it. If anyone is found to be a repeat offender, future entries may be affected.
