Agenda items:

2. Review of Thanksgiving Day Run
2.1 There were 39 day of race registrations with a total of 491 paid registered runners. The cost of the timing chip system was $739.50. Race favorites were the shirts, medals and cookies.
2.2 The race will eventually break even in terms of expenses and income after the final order of shirts for volunteers are paid.
2.3 Ideas for next year included obtaining a sponsor to help with the cost of the shirts; moving the staging/registration area to a larger building (perhaps the Ballard Center or Woodlawn School) and giving headbands or less expensive shirts.

4. Reminder for everyone to renew their membership for 2008.
