President's report:

  • Review of the Zoo race - problem with drop from the beach, short water, registration help limited for checking returning runners back in. Water and food too close to the finish line - everyone went by and had to come back. Only one water stop and cars cutting into the race field. Some of these issues were discussed in advance. Mary claims that nothing has changed for the 3 years she has run the race.
  • Newsletter to be distributed June 23rd
  • GC premium and logo options were reviewed and costs need to be determined. Vote to be by email.

Membership:  :

  • 454 total members, 368 households. It has been suggested that we create a follow-up post card for anyone not renewed that gives a phone number to call with any problems. Also board members should have name tags at races and try to meet new members.
