Minutes HCR Club Meeting

August 3rd 2006 Yakima Athletic Club

Eric called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. Members present: Eric Anderson, Pat and Karen Miller, Kenn and Jean Zahn, Bill and Virginia Nicholson, Jeff Hagen, Stan Helmka, Frank Purdy, Elizabeth Tutsch, Gailon Gentry, Jack and Janis Carlton.

Gailon was at the meeting to thank the club for their support and to invited members to the Tampico Grey Rock 50k trail run. It is August 19th starting at 7a.m. Adding a 25k was discussed and Gailon indicated that it would probably be added. It would have an 8 a.m. start and the $35 entry fee would include a meal.

The minutes of the last meeting were accepted as posted on the web site.

Treasurerís report: Tony was not present. We still are in the black. No news yet on the final accounting of the marathon.

Membership: Virginia reported that we added 4 new members for the month. Total membership stands at 210.

Newsletter: Frank said it was done and at the printers. It should be mailed the second week in August. Dates were also discussed for the Winter Race Series. We have an extra week in December so there will be three races that month and one in January. Kenn suggested that we may want to look at adding a 5th race as was done in the early years. Franks answer to that was "I can find another run, but not another wife". End of discussion.

Club runs: Elizabeth said we have been getting a turnout of about 6 participants at each run and that they have been different runners each week. Not bad considering the hot weather. The Wed. runs at Franklin have consisted of a couple of miles warm-up and some sort of speed work.

New business: Moxee Hop Festival run was discussed. The run at Klosters cabin will be a 9am. run, August 13th. It will be followed by breakfast, provided by the club. There will be car pools going up. Check the web site.

Eric brought up the idea of getting a giant balloon or our HCR apple core runner. He is going to initiate inquiries about it.

Old business: Karen is placing a order next week for club shirts.

Meeting adjourned, 8:00pm. Respectfully submitted, Jack Carlton
