The 50/50 raffle has helped to support many of our grass roots programs and initiatives, as well as given the lucky winner a little extra spending money just in time for the Christmas rush. So why not take a chance? It could be your name we draw!! The raffle is open only to registered delegates. Each entry is $25 and proceeds will be evenly distributed between the winning entrant and USATF. The organization's portion is used to support our grass roots and developmental programs. The winner will be announced at the Closing General Session.
The City of Jacksonville will conduct a fireworks display on Friday, December 2 at 10:00 p.m. along the riverfront. The display is scheduled to take place at Metropolitan Park (near Alltel Stadium) and from a barge located near the Acosta Bridge, west of Jacksonville Landing. The Hyatt Regency is located on the riverfront between Alltel Stadium and the Acosta Bridge, making it a good spot from which to enjoy the show.
