    I just noticed that they moved the finish line on the map for the Trials vs the finish line we were shown during season seat holder purchases last month. I wonder if this is a mistake or if they're adjusting for the modified stadium we'll have in 2021? If it's the latter, I wound up with some killer seats. Initially, the finish line bisected 121/221. Now it bisects 120/220. Not that finish line is the be all/send all of track ticketing....just a personal preference.
    I think I found the new map display that you saw, but there's actually no finish line drawn on it. What you're referring to, I think, is an extension of the home straight that, if actually built, would facilitate running the 100 & 110H in a reverse (northerly) direction, eliminating the need to run "reverse" races on the backstretch (I'm emitting a sigh for the east stands faithful). Rest assured that the finish line will remain at the point where the curve of the rail begins, which is still in front of Sections 121 & 221.

    I also got Trials seating that is one row below my 2021 season ticket location. I thought it was an error by the staff, mistaking "M" for "N," but based on other posts, I guess I was bumped by someone with more pull who wanted extra seats for the Trials.

        Figure out who you know who is an athlete or coach (even retired athletes) and you’re good for good seats.

          what a joy it's going to be for longtime West side viewers not to have pillars in the way anymore (another reason why East was in many ways the superior side)

            As a spectator, I usually chose to avoid the pillars by sitting in the rows in front of them (although I normally prefer sitting higher up). What I couldn't avoid was the uncomfortable bench seating and the much-too-tight legroom. As I think I've said on other threads, I am very much looking forward to the new Hayward.

              There was lots of legroom in the East Grandstand....the West Grandstand was horrible....

                One problem with the East grandstand was sometimes the sun, depending on the time of day and how high up you were sitting. That's not going to change.

                I generally preferred the West grandstand at Hayward, in spite of the legroom. I like sitting on the finish side. Also, it's easier to follow the pole vault from the opposite side of the field than the horizontal jumps, which are almost impossible to see from the East grandstand.

                    That's a pretty decent spread of events. Both Sundays are stacked. I guess I'll finally get to see the hammer.

                        Several sessions next year start and finish later than in 2016. Makes dinner a little problematic. Maybe they want to increase hot dog sales....

                                Feels a bit wrong to me for a Brit to hold any kind of record to do with pumpkins but then we are prone to eccentricity!
