- Aggregate account balances
- Actual in checking account
is $8200; we have $6000 in PayPal and still have some income pending for
no check this month, it did not get to us on time
but Martin says the receivables are looking good-much better than last
year at this time. Next month
should look much better.
- With the receipts from
just two All-Comers meets, we have already paid half of the summer rent to
MEMBERSHIP: Becca Gillespy/Nick Fleming
- Becca did not have exact
numbers, but saw a few new members and overall
says numbers are increasing, not decreasing even with increased membership
fees-we have not seen the “Firecracker phenomena” yet since that usually
happens two weeks out from the race.
- Still discussion of
whether or when the membership list will be “databased”-nothing was
mentioned for a time frame at this point.
Runner: Bill Roe for Martin Rudow
- No check this month-see
above. Receivables are looking
EVENTS: Becca Gillespy
- Third week of All-Comers
this Wednesday-numbers have been up.
Week one was the largest 1st meet in 10 years with 297
competitors and receipts of $1200.
Second week was decent at $800-900; we are still selling a lot of
season passes so that can inflate the numbers early in the year.
- Beach Vaults occur over the July 4th
weekend-will not be a big revenue draw for us, but great publicity-32 participants
have signed up so far. Tacoma will be 7/4
and Alki 7/5.
- She has raised $1300 so
far, but most will go to meet expenses as this meet is more for Club
Northwest publicity than fund-raising.
- We may have some Masters Runners
in the 3K exhibition at the trials-Tony Young, David Cannon, Mike Lynes
and Keefer Whan-but only Tony has run a qualifying time so far.
- We were supposed to have a
wrap-up of the Resolution Run last month-Brian was at tonight’s meeting,
but this was not provided.
TEAM: Lance Giles/Becca Gillespy
- Will is working on the
uniforms we expect to have them ordered, etc within 2 weeks.
- Will and Kate Conwell have
qualified for the Olympic Trials-we have 7 others that are very close,
i.e. Chris Randolph
- Eugene is going to hold another
qualifier on 6/15/08
- Becca has a fund raising goal
of $10K for Olympic athletes
- PNTF 5K Championship was
6/6/08 at Fremont. Club Northwest had several notable
performances, Kristi Houk 1st place overall female, Leif Kohler
2nd place overall male (1st overall won by Uli
Steidl-Seattle Running Company).
First place 40-44 Masters, Kevin McGinnis, First Place 45-49 Masters, John
O’Hearn, First Place
55-59 Jerry Zyskowski
- A “Legends of Club
Northwest” cross country team is being planned for the Club Nationals in
December 2008 at Spokane. Jerry Lindgren, Herm Atkins and Don
Kardong may run for Club Northwest-according to Tom Cotner
- We spent a lot of time
going over the proposed budget Lance submitted for expenses so far and
what is required to support the balance of the track season.
- Lance will have a team
roster to Saul by COB 6/16/08 so we can advise the athletes to purchase
tickets, Club Northwest will reimburse a portion of the ticket and the
individual may use their reimbursement account as applicable for the
balance. We will not purchase
tickets-they will purchase their own for Club Nationals.
- Lance will draw up a
letter detailing information for each participant once the roster is
- The board will vote on the
final budget details once Lance supplies us with the roster and other
pertinent details-he still intends to take 30 athletes and indicated it
will be a very “strong squad”.
