Photo by Jerry Wojcik, National Masters News Competitors will be asked to assist the New England Association by filling out a survey form that they will receive at registration. With the indoor championships remaining in Boston now through 2004 , the Association hopes to use the information to make further improvements for future years, as well as attract additional corporate support. Both New Balance and M-F Athletics who were on board for the 1998 and 2000 events are returning as sponsors for the 2002 meet. Athletes are also encouraged to submit any recent notable performances or places in national or international competitions with their entry form for use by the meet announcer and for media disbursement.
