2800. EXHIBITION EVENTS

Exhibition events may be staged by the host CIF Section, if approved by the Federated Council, using athletes from that section only. The javelin event is not to be conducted in CIF track and field competition.

2801. LANDING SECTOR FOR DISCUS AND SHOT PUT

For safety reasons, the landing sector for both the discus and shot put will be changed to 40 degrees and, furthermore, a clearly marked safety area be maintained at 60 degrees in order to increase safety for participants, officials, and spectators. The present width of area for restraining spectators and other athletes, not throwing the shot or discus, will remain the same as per National Federation rules. (Approved February 1998 Federated Council and revised February 1999).

2803. AT LARGE ENTRIES

An athlete shall earn an at-large entry into the state meet if his/her mark at the final section competition (which qualifies entrants to the state meet) is equal to or better than the average of the 9th place qualifying marks to the state meet finals from the three most recent years. (Approved May 2000 Federated Council).
