2020 Open T&F Championships postponed, future date TBD

Due to the current COVID 19 Pandemic and resulting uncertainty and consideration for the safety and health of membership, the Open and Master’s T&F Champs scheduled for 31 May at College of San Mateo has been postponed, with a new date yet to be determined.

The Open and Master’s T&F Chairs will work to offer some type of competition opportunities when local health authorities determine it is safe to do so, and the safety and health of our membership in no way would be compromised.
