Treasurerís report: Tony said all major expenses for the month were from the
Clear Lake Runs. We had about $100.00 income for the month. Tony also gave a
separate report on ClearLake.
Unfortunately it was not a successful run financially. We lost about $300.00
due to the numbers being down somewhat, and some extra expenses. M. S. I.
Construction was a race sponsor, but because they were not recognized properly
as a sponsor, Tony opted not to accept their sponsorship money. It was a good
run though. The weather turned out to be great for running, everyone seemed to
have a good time, and Eric did a fine job running the show.
Membership: 2 new members were added in June and total membership stands at
Newsletter: It "will be" a work in progress. The July issue will
be out a little later after the Runner Stumbles and the Kiutus
Jim runs. Ericís July running reminders were e-mailed on June 28th
and the web site was updated on June 26th.
Club runs: tony volunteered to send out a post
card to all members reminding them of the Aug. 1st annual mountain
fun run at the Klosters.
New Business: YRCM up-date. Hereís a little more marathon trivia. 21 States,
were represented in the last race. There were thirty-two 100+ marathoners
totaling over 6127 marathons ran. 39 people have run all 4 of our marathons and
we had 73, 73, 83, 83 first time marathoners in the first four races. The
trophyís have been updated and are on display at the SelahCivicCenter.
Flyers are being distributed until the registration forms come out. Dick Beardslee is scheduled to be here. Bob and Lenore set up a
booth at the Port Angeles marathon
promoting our run. We made about $1000.00 on this years
Lorrie Smith the new race director of the Sun City Races was introduced. She
is the event coordinator for the Yakima Greenway. Lorrie has already met with
Mike and will get lots of help from the club. Mike Pratt stopped in to request
the small clock and time machine for the kids mini triathelon at the Athletic Club. He also seemed pretty
pleased that he really is the ex-director of the Sun City Races.
Having a training day on the race equipment was discussed. It was decided to
have it September 9th,
at Franklin Park. We want to get as many members there
as possible to get acquainted with the timing equipment.
Old Business: Eric confirmed that the number of entrants was down this year
for the Clear Lake Runs. He thanked Frank Purdy,
Tony, Jim Kloster and all the volunteers for
their help this year. Bob and Lenore suggested we check with our insurance
company as to weather we are insured for baby joggers. Tony said that one of
the organizers of the Kiutus Jim Run, Robert Jim,
entered the ClearLake
run, joined the club, and made a substantial donation to the club which was
designated to be place in our newly established scholarship fund.
Meeting adjourned, Respectfully submitted, Jack Carlton
