Continuing/New Business/Membership

·         A way to help the youth running movement in the local area a motion was set to: ‘pay for youth entry fees once they have paid to become a Club Northwest member for a year at $15.00, they will also receive a Club Northwest singlet that must be worn at all events that Club Northwest paid entry into.’ Shelley moved to accept and was seconded by Regina. Passed with no nays.
