In June of this year (2010), the Region 1 Junior Olympics athletes, parents, friends, coaches & judges will arrive in the Brunswick area for the Region 1 Track & Field competition. Bowdoin College has graciously offered their fields and security staff for use by the competitors for their events.
Local restaurants, shops & lodging properties are likewise pitching in to insure the athletes, families and judges have a fantastic weekend experience here in Maine.
We're looking forward to having some of the athletes, families and judges stay with us for the weekend. If you're planning to attend the weekend's events, please check here for information on rates and accommodations in Freeport at White Cedar Inn B&B. (Located 15 minutes from Bowdoin College, easy drive. Essentially 3 right hand turns to the campus!)
Dates for the events are:
June 25, 2010- Multi-events (Pent, Hept, Dec)
June 26, 2010- Bantam/Midget/Youth
June 27, 2010- Inter/Young
Complete information can be found at the Maine USATF web site.
According to the USATF website, Region 1 consists of the following associations: New England, Connecticut, Maine, Adirondack (NY), Metropolitan (NY), and Long Island (NY), so we'll be seeing athletes from up to 8 hours away (if they're coming from the Adirondack Region as we know from our trips back to Tupper Lake!)
Good luck to all competitors! And we hope you enjoy your visit in Maine!
