We discussed what physicians are available to Club Northwest members-John Robertson, in the past treated members free if they were on an approved list. Currently, Michael Allison will treat any Club Northwest members for cost.
Regarding Club Nationals, we have 15 spots for the 7/13-14 “Icahn Stadium” (NY) meet as discussed last month. To date no one has made the $200 deposit-has not been well-communicated to athletes. We extended the deadline for the non-refundable $200 to 5/22/07. It was suggested we communicate the need for this fee directly to the athletes and they can send a check or pay online. Shelley is working on travel arrangements for the group.
We have 5-6 athletes going
Bill talked about need to start fund-raising-silent auction etc give our expanding presence in some of these track and field events. It is hoped we will generate more “general fund” dollars by sales of Club Northwest gear. A donation button was suggested for the website.
Bill suggested working more
closely with Jesse at Brooks given our increased numbers in Track and
Field. Maybe we could get increased
support from them similar to what Nike has done for
Chuck and Lance need to get together to decide how they will manage the track and field, long-distance runners so as to minimize “stepping on toes”. No date was set for this meeting.

Various ideas were given to Chuck about how to post results on the website for Club Northwest members. Links will be sent to him on meets, races that he could then download and post.
New Business: Nick
