For a typical home game at Gupton stadium, the following is an approximate timeline:
Note: Just a few Pit-Pack members are needed during load and unload at the school – the most help is needed at games and competitions
Note: As the year progresses we aim to improve the end-of-game load times, so these approximate timelines will hopefully get better.
Note: For Thursday games, game start time is 7:00, so move this timeline up by half an hour.
Note: For any away games, move the timeline up by the additional drive-time.
Note: Pit-Pack members with a Pit-Pack badge should not need a ticket to enter the game – family members will need tickets.
There is no such thing as a typical contest! That said, here is the general process.
Additional Competition Notes
For some competitions, there will only be one performance. At the end of the performance, we will load the truck and get it ready for departure. We may not actually leave till the end of the contest, but the truck will be ready. For most contests, there is a preliminary/finals format, which means we might repeat the contest cycle twice. This will sometimes require an additional load/unload cycle before the final load to return home.
