Kelly reported that there is currently $7084.00 in the Strider’s account.
Charles reported on the new website. He is going to look into setting up an e-mail list for anyone that would like to subscribe. This will be open to the public. A private e-mail list will be set up for key board members. Aside from the website, he expressed interest in getting the Striders involved with local area school running clubs. He also expressed interest in the Striders possibly donating a water bib to be placed on the Cedar Crest grounds. He is going to look into that and report back to the board.
A brief discussion about the new clock and timer. We will be using it to time the upcoming SSG Cross Country event at Iliff’s on 7/26 and The Big Shunga 8k on 8/2.
Upcoming Fall race events were discussed. Ideas for a Fall fun run and where it would best fit into the race calendar were talked about as well.
$104.50 was spent on the newsletter in June, this included the mailing.
We would like to start sending out a current membership roster to local races that are offering a discount to the Striders to help them identify members.
It was decided that we would go ahead with the Mettle Award for 2008. The board will look into a Strider of the Year Award for 2009.
The board discussed possible locations for this years banquet. It will be addressed again in August.
The board will start preliminary planning for Topeka to Auburn at next months meeting on August 8th at Kelly Christensen’s home.Debbie Pryor, Secretary
