Summer Games Head of Delegation Information

May 31 – June 2, 2019

This webpage provides a comprehensive summary of the Summer Games.  There are several links to more detailed documents.  You need to read all of this information even if you are already familiar with it because you are responsible for knowing it!

If you have questions about this info, if you need help during the event, if you get lost, if you are running late, whatever it might be – call us!

You can call your community resources director or
Kelly Vaughn, SONC Staff, 919-818-7321
Please note that Paul Finks, our volunteer games director of 8 years, has suddenly had to be absent due to health reasons.  We are sure he’d love well wishes via email though! 🙂

Please view this letter from Special Olympics Chairman, Timothy Shriver wishing all athletes and Unified partners good luck, thanking all involved in Special Olympics for their hard work and dedication, and declaring the Games open!

Please view this video about reminders and key points for the 2019 SONC Summer Games!

The Opening Ceremony will be exciting this year as we move to PNC Arena (yes, the Carolina Hurricanes played valiantly but we now have guarantee on the facility).  Again, there will not be an official march-in, but all delegations will be recognized during the program.  Dinners will be available for all delegations per requests as you enter the arena.  There will be a good amount of floor seating and easy access stands to ensure everyone can sit where they prefer.  A DJ will have the music rockin’ and dancing will be happening until the start of the program. This year’s celebration will center around North Carolina hosting the 1999 Special Olympics World Games 20 years ago in Raleigh. Special recognition for the SONC athletes who competed in the 1999 World Games will also be part of the program.  And this all proves to fit into the theme of The Greatest Show.  It promises to be an exciting celebration!

There will be some specially designed souvenirs for sale throughout the weekend so be sure to check them out at your venue or at the Dance on Saturday night!

We are all too familiar with NCSU and the many construction projects which take place over the summer.  This year is no exception. In addition to continued congestion and construction along Cates Ave, Dan Allen Dr. will also have a portion closed.  The campus will need to be accessed by turning onto Dan Allen Dr. from Western Blvd. throughout the weekend.

Fountain Dining Hall is being renovated and will not be available for use during your stay.  Don’t worry – it is only for this year.  Also, there may be construction equipment and supplies near the dorms, so please use caution while making your way to activities.  We have made arrangements for NCSU Catering Services to provide breakfast meals and coffee stations at each dorm.  Athletes will be able to enjoy their breakfast each day in the comfort of their room while getting ready to compete.

Dorm housing will not include Avent Ferry Complex on Western Blvd.  While housing details will be sent out at the first of next week, at this point we anticipate that all delegations will be housed in the west campus cluster of dorms near Fountain dining hall (Bragaw, Lee and Sullivan).  This does mean that all check-in for all delegations will happen in the same location.  It will be quite a party Friday afternoon!

The parking passes needed on NC State’s campus for Friday only (none needed over the weekend) is always a moving target.  This year all vehicles will be required to register online for a parking pass; this includes providing the license plate number of your vehicle.

We have a good handful of sport venue changes:
Due to the number of issues in the stands at athletics last year, a tent permit request form is now being used for those wanting to set up tents in the spectator seating area.

Bowling Doubles and Team has a new location!  It will now be located at Buffaloe Lanes South in Raleigh (it used to be at Buffaloe Lanes North!).

Due to a decrease in registered athletes, powerlifting will be a one-day competition this year!  Weigh-ins will continue to be held on Friday afternoon and competition on Saturday.  Powerlifting competition will NOT be held on Sunday.

Due to construction at Lions Park, softball skills will be held at Carolina Pines Park in Raleigh.  Softball skills will continue to be a one-day competition only being held on Saturday.

Volleyball will again be hosted by the Triangle Volleyball Club, but the location is at their new facility in Morrisville.

We will continue to rely heavily on text messaging to communicate with everyone during the Games.  Be on the lookout for texts throughout the weekend and please make sure SONC has accurate cell phone numbers on file beforehand so we can keep you informed.

Just a reminder, Healthy Athlete screenings will be held on Friday and Saturday! Please make sure to schedule your athletes to participate in this wonderful program. Screenings will be available after check-in Friday and after competition on Saturday. Screenings will also be part of the activities during the Victory Dance!  New this year, we will be offering Adaptive Yoga classes at Talley Student Union! These are 30-minute classes starting at 4:00 pm on Saturday. To participate you must sign your athletes up using the link above.

Breakfast on both mornings will be distributed in the lobby of each dorm.  Along with a coffee/hot tea station set up in the lobby of each dorm, the following breakfast items will be provided:

  • your choice of biscuit (orders were collected previously) – bacon/egg/cheese or sausage or plain
  • a blueberry muffin
  • vanilla greek yogurt
  • bag of apple slices
  • orange or apple juice

We have a large number of contributors for lunches at the venues.  Lunch specifics are listed with the venues.

Dinner on Friday night will be offered at the Opening Ceremony.  It is a boxed dinner consisting of:

  • chicken tenders
  • french fries
  • chocolate chip cookie
  • bottled water

Delegations have the choice of either eating out or eating at Talley Student Center (site of the dance) for Saturday night dinner .  Four restaurants and the market will be open 4-7pm.   Here are the dining options for Talley:
*  Talley Market (which will stay open until 10pm) has all of your typical snacks, some amazing ice cream made right there at NC State, salads, etc.
*  Jason’s Deli – you can view the menu online.
*  Los Lobos Mexican Grill – this is run similarly to Moe’s Grill where you walk through and get a made-to-order burrito, etc.  You can view the menu online.
*  Red Sky Pizza – you can view the menu online.
*  Tuffy’s Burgers – you can view the menu online.

For Jason’s Deli, Los Lobos, Tuffy’s and Red Sky Pizza, you can order and pay ahead using the Tapingo app.  You can even indicate at what time you will pick up your food.  This could make things much much easier for your whole group!

If your delegation has opted to eat out on your own, there are a number of options on Hillsborough Street as well as Western Boulevard.

Dietary Needs
If you have requests for vegetarian or gluten-free meals at the sport venues, email those requests to Julianna Pratt including the name(s) of the people needing the special lunches.  All requests must be received by Friday, May 24 in order for arrangements to be made. A current list of gluten-free and vegetarian meals we are currently aware of can be found here.

Talley Student Union restaurants have been asked to prepare for vegetarian or gluten free needs for Saturday dinner.

We will have vegetarian and gluten free options during lunch at the venues but please be prepared to bring food that can be available to those with dietary restrictions to ensure this is a good meal for him/her.

For all other meals (breakfast and Friday night dinner), your delegation will need to make your own arrangements for any dietary needs.

All delegations will be housed in the following dorms:
*  Bragaw Dorm
*  Lee Dorm
*  Sullivan Dorm

Delegations will check-in at Lee for all dorms.
Check-in will take place 1-5pm on Friday.

SONC is assuming that everyone is staying for both Friday and Saturday nights.  Delegations are asked to alert Kelly Vaughn ASAP if there are individuals who will only stay Friday night so room nights are not unnecessarily charged to SONC.

All participants should bring all linens (pillow, blanket, sheets, towels and washcloths).  If someone forgets an item, extras will be available at cost to the local program.
Prices are as follows:
Sheets (2) – $3.00
Towel (1) – $2.50
Washcloth (1) – $1.00
Pillow with Pillowcase (1) – $2.00
Blanket (1) – $4.00
Total Set – $12.50

Building access cards will provide access to in-building laundry in your assigned buildings.  There is no additional laundry service charge but you need to bring your own detergent!

Extra volunteers will be available to help with unloading luggage and getting it to the dorms.  As mentioned above, make sure everyone labels their luggage with their name and delegation.  The goal is to deliver all luggage to the HOD’s suite for you all to distribute from that point.

Please be sure to enter campus from Western Blvd. on Friday afternoon.  A campus map is now provided to help you navigate NC State.

This year we will be offering Healthy Athletes screenings on Friday and Saturday! In an effort to allow for more opportunities to complete all Healthy Athletes screenings, they will be held at two different locations.  Please thoroughly look at the information below to make sure you know the location and time for each screening. We also have an online sign up form that allows you to reserve a time to complete these disciplines. We will take walk-ups, but know that you may not be able to go through certain screenings due to reserved times from the online sign-up form.  New this year, we will be offering Adaptive Yoga classes at Talley Student Union! These are 30-minute classes starting at 4:00 pm on Saturday. To participate you must sign your athletes up using the link above.

PNC Arena
1400 Edwards Mill Rd.
Raleigh, NC 27607
Venue Director – Stephanie Williamson, (919) 943-5518 cell
Opening Ceremony Agenda and Sensory Information
Inclement Weather Plan – Delegations should remain in their vehicles or at the dining hall until severe weather passes.  Everyone already in the venue should remain in the building.

Opening Ceremony will be even more exciting this year at the PNC Arena, which will offer many new activities for the athletes prior to the actual ceremony.  Again, there will not be an official march-in, but all delegations will be recognized during the program and dinners will be available for all delegations as they enter the arena.  Seating will be in easy access stands as well as on the floor level. A DJ will have the music rockin’ and dancing will be happening until the start of the program. This year’s celebration will center around North Carolina hosting the 1999 Special Olympics World Games 20 years ago in Raleigh. Special recognition for the SONC athletes who competed in the 1999 World Games will also be part of the program. It promises to be an exciting celebration!

Everyone will be welcomed to enter the building starting at 6:15pm, get their boxed dinners if ordered, and proceed to the seating area to enjoy a dance party right up until the program starts at 7:30pm.

Souvenirs & Concessions – Please note that souvenirs will not be sold during the Ceremony.  Souvenirs will be on sale at all venues on Saturday and Saturday night at the dance.  We have confirmed that concessions will be sold.  We are still finalizing the items that will be made available but they include items like popcorn and pretzels.

There will be a bag-check at the doors.  PNC Arena requires that everyone entering the building have their bag checked first.  The best idea – just don’t bring a bag.  If you must, just be prepared for it to be inspected before you can enter.

FUNfitness and Health Promotions will both be opening at 4pm to ensure more athletes can participate.  All of this will be going on while DJ Tony Williams plays joined by the CCC Dancers!  To finish it off, we will have regular entertainment every half hour on the first floor to celebrate the five decades of Special Olympics.
