    Drake Relays - Anyone On This Site Attending?

    Anyone on this site attending the Drake Relays this week? I hit the Friday and Saturday sessions.

    As great as a spring as we have had for track...wouldn't you know they are predicting rains and storms for the Drake Relays weekend.

    I enjoy the Friday evening session with the high school events. It is nice to see kids from schools of all sizes running against each other (unlike state meet).

    What I don't enjoy about Friday evening is the cost of the extra ticket! Drake is getting very expensive!

    I'll be at the West End for "breakfast" on Friday morning, but not sure how much track I'll watch. Maybe saturday?

    Relays is sort of like Veishea for Drake Students, but on a much smaller scale.

    Extra ticket?

    I got just this one session from a group who have all session tickets and have been going for years - they rave about it. I've never been to the Relays and looking forward to it.

    Drake used to include 2 tickets. You would buy a ticket for Friday and a ticket for Saturday. When they moved most of the high school events to Friday night they made people purchase an ticket for Friday night as well. I live in Cedar Rapids so I don't attend any of the events pre-Friday...but Friday used to be cheap...not anymore.

    The Relays are a pretty cool opportunity to watch some world class athletes for sure!

    I can't justify paying that much to watch a track meet. I understand that these are elite athletes and some people enjoy watching them. Just not my cup of tea.

    I have a lot better things to do with my weekend than watch people run in circles and throw heavy things in the grass.
