Sunflower Striders Board Meeting Minutes

July 10, 2005

The meeting began at 5:00 p.m. 

In attendance:

  • Brad Rhoden, President
  • Frank Weinhold, Vice-President
  • Kelly Christensen, Treasurer
  • Norma Weiser, Member at Large
  • Marla Rhoden, Member at Large
  • Dave Halferty, Member

To accommodate Dave Halferty, discussion of the mettle award was moved to the top of the agenda.  Dave presented a draft “Call for Nominations” for the mettle award which would be posted on the SSRC web site and included in the newsletter.  It was decided that individuals nominated for the mettle award must meet the following criteria:  1) have faced an uncommon challenge, and 2) be a current club member for at least two years.  It was also decided that there doesn’t have to be a mettle award presented every year.  Dave will revise the “Call for Nominations” per discussion and then e-mail the revision to Brad and to Margie for inclusion in the October newsletter.  There will be a short article in the August newsletter about the mettle award.

Secretary’s Report.  Marla is filling in for Sharon Patnode, who was not able to attend.  The minutes for the June meeting were accepted as presented.  Copies of Sharon’s draft letter for club discounts were distributed.  After discussion, it was agreed that Kelly and Sharon will continue working on the letter.  Frank will provide a sample letter that he has used.

Treasurer’s Report.  Kelly reported that the current account balance is $5,739.44.  The biggest recent expense was $120.00 for the Topeka Trolley for the Crow’s Flight run.  Kelly also purchased stamps.  Kelly has sent notes welcoming new members, along with their membership cards.  Four new members have joined since the last meeting.  Kelly will present a revised club brochure at the next meeting.

Vice-President’s Report.  Frank will check with Herman’s Meat Market on prices for meat for the Crow’s Flight run on August 7.  Options for runners beginning the Crow’s Flight run at either Billard Airport or at the Capitol area will be outlined in the August newsletter, along with other information about the event.  It was decided that Sept. 18 or 25 would be the best dates for the Capitol Plaza Hotel run.  Frank will get with Gordon Rostvold about scheduling one of those Sunday mornings for the run.  Frank will represent the club for the Keep America Beautiful program at the annual volunteer dinner on July 19th.

President’s Report.  Brad reported or initiated discussion on the following:

  • Once the letter is finalized, we will begin soliciting member discounts at area business/restaurants.
  • The Striders Weekly segments haven’t been getting updated on the web site.  Brad will check with Karen on it.
  • We will begin mentioning Topeka to Auburn in the October newsletter.  Monthly planning meetings for TTA will begin in September.  Brad will ask Gordon Wade if he is interested in serving as race day director again.  Brad asked the officers to begin thinking about preferred duties for TTA.
  • There was discussion on getting more members to volunteer and participate in local events.  Norma will write a newsletter article about race participation.
  • We will put something on the web site and in the newsletter about singlets for purchase.
  • After discussion, Gerald Christensen was selected as the Honorary Striders member for 2006.  He will be invited to speak about the Thunderbolts.
  • Articles for the August newsletter are due to Margie on July 23 so that the newsletter can be copied and mailed by the first of August.  We want the newsletter distributed so that members get the information about the Crow’s Flight run.  Norma will begin providing birthdays by month only for the newsletter.
  • Dr. Doug Iliff has donated a measuring wheel for the club’s use.
Upcoming races:


  • 7/16 Sunflower State Games, Gage Park.  Volunteers helping with registration need to arrive by 5:30 a.m.
  • 9/17 Race Against Breast Cancer 5k, Washburn.  Provide backup timing, clock.  Brad will get info to Kelly so she can provide an invoice in August.
  • 9/24   Combat Air Museum 5k, Forbes.  No recent contact.  Brad will contact Jim Menge.
  • 10/1   Capper Run 4-mile – Brad has not heard from them.

Late fall – Moose Club race?  Brad will research as he has not heard from them.

The next meeting is scheduled for August 14, 2005, 5:00 p.m. at the Classic Bean.

The meeting adjourned just before 6:30 p.m.
