Financial Report/Rob Cook
have $5,500 in checking. We are $2,500
in the black now with still owing the hotel $1,000. Trish is owed some money.
Not a lot of expenses this time of year.
Northwest Runner Report/ Brian Oster
- Martin was home
recuperating from a nasty go carting accident.
- No money from Northwest runner as
expected with Martin mailing out the direct mail piece.
- The Running Network
owes us close to $17,000 and has us on a payment plan that will have it
paid off in 2007.
- The Resolution Run went
off on time with over 300 hundred runners. From what I saw this event can
become a New Year’s classic. We need a larger budget, more heat, big
screen television. Towards the end of the meeting it was discussed that
the same race should be held in the summer with the Trip-n-Drip being a
little more fun.
- New Balance/SJJ Grand
Prix is going on with a race at Emerald Downs January 24th.
Executive Directors Report/Brad Barquist
- Meeting with Brooks to
finalize the sponsorship agreement.
The agreement will be for 25 full gear kits, plus other stuff.
- Power Bar sponsorship
worth up to $6,000.
- Regina Joyce has been one of the top
local racers and has represented us very well for the past two years,
including, back to back masters titles. Brad is recommending a funding
leave of $600.00 for Regina.
T.P. motioned to move Regina
to a $600 funding level. Motioned was seconded by Tony Young. No Nays.
- Scott Boothby is
requesting consideration for funding above his elite statics of $1,200.00
to help purchase a plane ticket to the Mount SAC
relays in April. The Mount
SAC relays would be
for a pre Olympic meet with some very good competion. Scott has a good
chance to make the 2004 Olympic Team and we should support his
- Also hammer thrower out
Prudencio Escobedo is requesting consideration for funding. Prudencio
throw a 206’-4” at the NCAA Div. II ‘03 championships. He could really get
us points at the meets.
- Brad will have a short
news report in Northwest Runner and include an ad that Bill put together.
- Brads review process is
almost completed. Which is one of three that need to be
done. A clearer set of priorities and expectation is going to help.
Continuing and New Business
- The on going ‘t’ shirt
issue, anyone who signs up from now on will be mailed one soon after
signing up. However we do not have ‘t’ shirt
sizes of past members so they will need to contact us.
- Ed would like to start
a membership committee, to funnel all new and renewing members though the
membership team with most of the work done at the Club’s office. More on
this next month as Ed works out the details.
- USATF is opening the
National Track and Field Hall of Fame January 24th. It is
sharing the majestic 168th
Street Armory in the historic Washington Heights
neighborhood of New York City.
