Members present: Paul, Becky, Andy, Molly, Celeste, Dee, Don, Ellen and Lori.

Agenda items:

  1. Race updates: Dee and Becky reported on the Shamrock Shuffle. There were 413 finishers this year on the new course.
  2. Treasury report: the balance as of February 28th was $5,245.32.
  3. Thanksgiving Day Run: Dick Ross is available to take photographs of
    our run for $100. After a brief discussion, Molly moved, Paul seconded and the members approved securing his services to take photographs. Gene was delegated to contact Mr. Ross.
  4. Dam Run: runLawrence will just be renting equipment for the run this year. The run is scheduled for March 27th and will be a 5K and 12K.
  5. Club Picnic: On May 15th, from 5:00 and 7:00 at the east Centennial Park shelter house. The club will provide burgers, hot dogs, buns, condiments and drinks. Members will bring a side dish. Family members and persons who have an interest in the club are welcome to attend. The cost for the shelter rental was $40. Members should e-mail Dee during the week prior regarding numbers so plans for food purchase can be solidified.
  6. Brew-to-Brew: Heather and Brenda have organized a team. Dee, Celeste and Karen H. have volunteered to assist at exchange #9. Dee said a KU fraternity has volunteered helpers as well. At this exchange, drivers dropping off a runner must pick up a runner (not necessarily one on their team), and then continue into town. This plan should reduce traffic congestion and increase safety.
  7. Finish line equipment rental: Becky distributed copies of our club policy. The Jayhawk Jog race director has requested the use of the club's equipment.
  8. Future runs: Andy announced the June 19th Baldwin 5K in conjunction with their "Trains, Planes and Automobiles" celebration. The 5K will benefit the Baldwin running club. Paul provided Horsethief 5K flyers for the run in Eudora July 10th. Art students at Eudora High are designing the rewards. The run benefits the Eudora High School Cross Country Team and local community programs. Dee and Becky will run in Manhattan's St. Patrick's Day 10K March 13th. The club will assist with the Hilltop Hustle April 24th. March 27th is "Rock the Parkway" in Kansas City. There will be a campus 5K May 1 in honor of Bob Frederick. The Topeka 10 Miler is Sat. April 3rd. A group of people are organizing a Mass Street Mile run in conjunction with the July 4th bike races.
  9. The meeting adjourned.
