Thanks to Cuesta College, Oceano Elks for help with track meet

I would like to publicly express my sincere gratitude to all who made having the recent Elks San Luis Obispo County Track Meet at Cuesta College possible.

First, I would like to extend a big thanks to Cuesta College coach Brian Locher and athletic director Bob Mariucci for allowing us to use their facility. In the last nine years, 39 new meet records have been established on this fantastic track. Brian was in attendance most of the day, helping solve problems.

Second, I would like to thank the Oceano Elks Lodge 2504 for sponsoring the event and working as officials at various field events. The county meet has been held two of those years in extreme weather conditions, and the Elks have always risen to the challenge. They have done this for 34 years, and I am very grateful for their continuing support.

Third, I want to thank the Arroyo Grande track parents and Arroyo Grande High School staff members for their tremendous efforts in doing a fantastic job running the meet.

James Brown, head track coach, Arroyo Grande High School
