Sunflower Striders Board Meeting Minutes

August 5, 2007
Rhoden home, 5626 SW 36th Terrace

Present: Brad Rhoden (President), Cheryl Haefele (Vice President), Kelly Christensen (Treasurer), and Marla Rhoden (member at large)

Upcoming races were discussed:
8/25 - Cair Paravel Latin School - have not heard whether SSRC will be involved or if GPRC is handling
9/22 - OZ 20 - 20-miler - GPRC is hosting this fun/training run in celebration of 1-year anniversary of the store
9/29 - Race Against Breast Cancer - Washburn University, 9:00 a.m. - clock and two backup timers provided by SSRC
9/29 - Combat Air Museum Winged Foot - Forbes, 8:00 a.m. - need at least two people to help in addition to Sharon
10/6 - Lions Journey for Sight 5K, 10K, Striders probably not involved
10/13 - Topeka 1/2 Marathon & 5k, don’t know if Striders are involved
10/20 or 10/27 - St. Matthew’s 5K - Bill Cochran is the contact; have not heard anything for some time
11/3 - GPRC 10k, 5k, 1k, location?
11/23 - Rescue Mission 4 Mile - assume it is a go for this year

Clock: The clock needs to be repaired - will wait to see what repairs are necessary. It did not work for the Big Shunga 8k.

Fun runs: Fun runs are set for the remainder of the year. Brad thanked Cheryl for arranging those. The fun runs are:
9/3 - Capitol Plaza Hotel (Labor Day)
10/14 - Julie Kelemen is hosting from her home
11/22 - Thanksgiving morning, Lake Sherwood
1/1/08 - will need to check with the Bakers to see if they will host (tradition!)

Apparel: There was discussion regarding a Striders jacket. Brad will get a sample from Willie Lambert.

Topeka to Auburn: Norma talked to the general manager at Durham bus service. Capacity is 45 people per bus, one hour travel time roundtrip, $90 per hour for three hours, start time at 8:30 a.m. Brad suggested getting a sling bag through GPRC to also be used as the packet. Brad asked those present to take a look at the 2007 race entry and suggest changes; he plans to begin working with Tim Halferty on the race brochure soon.

There was discussion on the suggestion for a Striders bundle on TTA race entry, dues and the banquet. It was suggested that information on bundle packages be included in the October and December newsletters. Cheryl will contact Mark Koepsel at theAuburn Elementary School to confirm plans for the race, pancake feed, results room, etc.

Newsletter: Kelly reported that current membership is around 130. The board reconsidered the decision to offer the newsletter online only and will continue to have it printed and mailed.

Striders web site: Brad will continue updating the front page news, at least for the near future. The events calendar is a great resource and should be promoted. We need to post the meeting minutes that have not yet been posted.

Miscellaneous: Brad received an e-mail from Visit Topeka (City of Topeka and the Topeka Sports Commission) advising they are trying to host the NAIA track championship (assuming it is for May 2008) at Hummer Park. The NAIA hosts a marathon along with the track meet. We would need to design a course and get it sanctioned. Brad forwarded the e-mail to Dave Halferty, Tony Estes, and Willie Lambert to see what interest there might be.

There was discussion about the Saturday morning run location. Brad will discuss further with Willie.

The Sunday morning run time will be changed to 7:30 a.m. year round. Brad will contact Jen Sharp to change it on the web site.

Next Meeting: Sept. 9, 2007, 5:00 p.m., at Cheryl’s house
