called to order at 7:36 by vice president Shelley Neal Williams
were on hand , but we did not have a quorum at start
of meeting, so minutes were not approved. Next meeting we will need to approve
December and January.
Financial Report/Rob Cook
have $800.00 in checking and $100.00 in savings. No C/D money. We owe Brad and
Brian some money. There may be a few masters that still owe airfare for
nationals, but we have no money spare at this time.
Northwest Runner Report/ Brian Oster
- Martin has hired a
consultant. Paul Temple
part of his role will be for help in collections. Paul went to the Running
Network’s office, which still owes us $17,000. Running Network will start
to pay for ads on a Net 90 day payment schedule, and the old debt will be
paid as soon as they are able. It may take up to three years for us to get
paid in full on the old debt.
- Sales of Northwest
Runner have been very good. The March issue will have 16 more pages,
making it the largest issue ever.
- Improvements to the
office include a T-1 line, new computer.
- Spring Break is
scheduled for March 27th at Edmonds Stadium.
- March 14th
is the 20th Henry
Weinhard’s Saint Patrick’s Day Dash
Executive Directors Report/Brad Barquist
- Brad has talked to Ed
Ledger and Ed will be heading up a new membership committee focusing on
non-competing members, getting them info, telephoning, sending out the
t-shirts, and fun stuff like that.
- Brad had the Brooks
agreement in hand for tonight’s meeting, and it was discussed, and batted
about at great length. Brooks is giving us a great package. Full uniforms,
five pair training shoes, two pair racing shoes, one pair spikes and
warm-up suits. For twenty of our elite athletes. There is still a
financial hit that Club Northwest will incur. No decision was made at
tonight’ meeting. A few board members will meet in two weeks to see how
this will affect Club Northwest financially.
- PowerBar has a two-year
deal on the table, not much talk until the Brooks agreement is finalized.
Continuing and New Business
- Annual meeting next
month, time to vote for your board members changes will be made.
adjourned at 9:10
