Meeting Minutes

SSRC Board Meeting, April, 2011

7:00 p.m., Classic Bean

 

Attendees: Brad Rhoden, Marla Rhoden, Norma Weiser, Jared Durall, Paul Wagner, Hunter Munns, Mary Anne Durall, Special Guest Dr. Iliff


Club Business:

 

Discussed donations to the following organizations and Hunter provided checks.

Donations to the Washburn marathon club.  $250

Donation to the sunflower state games. $250


Recap of picnic and fun run.

Discussed attendance at the event and how to target members in order to increase participation. Consider doing a targeted email. Do some cross marketing, Could we do more to get schools involved and increase the number of young people we reach? Consider looking for some different dinner location or moving to a different day of the week as mid week during school is difficult for families, consider Sunday from 2 or 3 in the afternoon.

Race schedule next month and a half.

We are not timing the Friends of the Zoo which is a non competitive run.

Nothing on the 23rd

30th run for Ronald  - Norma waiting for details Brad and Marla will help


Law days 5k in pm - has about 50 entrants Norma needs help


Girls on the run on the 7th - annual run Norma, Jared and Mary Anne to help


Farley on the 7th - fun run - look to make it an annual event. Use as a fund raiser. Chris Walton is the race director, teachers and parent committee, backed by principle. They are going to handle independently and see how they do on their own. We can try and help next year. Might want to consider Farley if we do approach schools to merge the runs and form larger races to help increase participation.

Spring Burn - early cut off is May 1st. Packet Pick Up is 4-8 on May 8th. Norma will enter registration data. Elaine will help get timers/finish line. MA to do packet pickup, Paul might help,

Run for Life - 1st weekend in April 2012

Misc:

Brad passed out additional news letters and copies of runners and triathletes

 

Garry Gribbles Running Store – Had a great run from Gribbles this month with over 25 participants.


Wednesday is earth day and we will be doing trash pickup. Hunter may try to bring the trail group to help out.

Brad would like us to review the web site and provide comments on what needs to be done. Homework assignment for all. Web site brad is thinking about changing the online service.

Topeka to Auburn 30th anniversary, need everyone to come up with an idea. A vest, hooded sweatshirt, bag, look for costs and see if you can find a sample or picture of the item. Depending on the cost we may want to do a quantity. Maybe to offset cost we will only get them for runners and then give volunteers something else. Look at changing prices, 30, 40, 50.

Norma had an idea about going philanthropic. Could we do something with the cancer association? Dr Iliff suggested the heart association. Marla said she will contact them.


Focus on youth article for next new letter - Hunter is writing, looking at doing something on trail runs or maybe Farley

Special Event:

The club was recently approached by Dr. Iliff regarding the purchase of a chip timing package. The purchase of this system makes sense if we want the running community in Topeka to keep pace with the races in surrounding communities. The purchase would need to consider the types of tag/chip and be able to support local races with 100- 1000 participants. A discussion was held on options and purpose as well as discussing how we can help promote the use of Iliff commons and increase race participation in general. Next steps- We would like to meet with Garry Gribbles or his team (they are also interested in expanding races and events in Topeka) and an open group of local race directors, coaches and individuals like Dr. Iliff to meet, discuss, and develop next steps on what we can do as a running community to increase participation; aim for the third week in May. Mary Anne will coordinate.

 

Next Meeting: Bakers Dozen 7pm May 8th
