REPORT: Bill Roe
- We have $11,025.63
in all accounts. We started the
year at $12,730.30, so we have had a decline of $1704.75 for the year.

on All-Comers and Resolution Run this year or the deficit would have been
a greater number.

large increase in Club Northwest subscribing members.

a record year for revenue for Northwest Runner with $51,170.54 going to
Club Northwest; the old record was 2006 when we generated $49,650 to fund
- Martin is
incurring some expenses for the new website that will occur in January
2009-February 2009-however, he says February is looking like a record
month-but it is never very strong so hard to compare it with an “average”

rescheduled this for 12/27 and only 90 people showed up. For the 1/10 cross country race we had
223 participants, did it in two races and this was an all-time record for numbers!

High-Performance Events and also making sure we have enough officials that
