Events, Membership/Pro-Motion: Brian Oster

  • RESO run January 1 2006 Road Runner Sports will start to help promote the race. We will again have a beer garden, trip-n-drip, and all the fun as last year. Let’s talk this event up as it can and should be bigger.  
  • Road Runner Sports will be a meet sponsor at some of the All Comers in 2006.
  • Brian will have an outline of the new rates that he will want to have in place for January 2006 for Club Northwest and perhaps a new subscription rate for Northwest Runner



  • Good showing at the Western Washington invite, results and a slide show on our web page.
  • Our Brooks contract is up in January, it’s now time to open that up to other companies and or work with Brooks on a new contract.
  • Kelly Kruell would like to run for Club at the X/C national’s but would need to fly from San Francisco.  


 New Business:

  • Our long Range Planning meeting will be moved to sometime in January.
  • T.P., Nick, and Phil will meet with Brian of ProMotion this Wednesday to go over his contract and other related topics. T.P. and Nick to discuss how to have a Saturday morning run out of the Sand Point office. (Since I’m writing this after our meeting T.P. and I want to commit to being at the office from say 7:30AM to 9:00AM for a slow support group run. We will never be a social club but our bylaws do state that will provide support and information to the community I feel that if we can support the slowest of us and can inspire the rest to feel that they have a base and can move up to a group run from Road Runner Sports or Super Jock ‘n Jill we will have done a great service to the community. That way we’re not a social Club but we continue to provide a service. Were thinking of doing the runs on the RESO 5K course, which can only help as a recruiting tool for the 2007 race as it could be a first race for some.) T.P. and I will work towards this.




  • Saul motioned that if Kelly Kruell pays her own way, she can run for the team on the woman’s master’s team as she will be flying from San Francisco seconded by Regina. The motion passed unanimously
  • Bill motioned for Club Northwest to help support this year’s Winter Grand Prix series at a cost of $300.00 seconded by Saul. The motion passed unanimously
