Financial Report: Bill Roe
Club Northwest has $32,983.57 in the bank or PayPal accounts, with $4,000 in payables and $4,200 in receivables. The ending balance is $33,183.57. Bill indicated that the 2006 budgeted accounts amount for Northwest Runner was $36,000.00 and that at the end of June the actual amount was already $38,307.00, a much rosier outcome than anticipated.
Northwest Runner Report: Martin Rudow
There has been terrific race attendance this year. The July issue of Northwest Runner turned out great. TP and Shelley will be putting together a piece about youth track to be included in a future Northwest Runner issue. Martin indicated that he could use some additional help at future races. There are plans to change magazine format to glossy stock beginning with the December 2006 issue.
Team: Chuck Bartlett

Membership: Brian Oster, Nick Fleming and Bill Roe
There were 810 entrants at the 2006 Firecracker 5000 run at
To date, no one has shown up for the Club Northwest sponsored Saturday morning runs at Sand Point.
Between Bill reporting on PayPal status and Brian reporting on mail-ins received, 22 new CNW members were tallied between Board meetings. Three of those were family memberships.
Discussion commenced on the compensation for and
responsibilities of Chuck Bartlett’s
Team Manager position. We are
currently on a month-to-month agreement with Chuck, paid through July 31. He has indicated that $250 is not substantive
enough to make the job worth his time.
Board member attendance at CNW Board meetings was brought up by TP as a concern in view of Article IV, section D3 of Club Northwest’s Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.
There was barely a quorum at the Club’s annual meeting this year, and a lack of a quorum at June’s meeting.
There was discussion of the need for additional assistance at the Summer All Comers meets and Bill suggested the Club might bring back the volunteer incentive program with free or reduced rate club membership or free entry into a club sponsored race.

The next Club Northwest Board meetings will be on August 14th and September 11th.
