SRR Board Meeting Minutes
The June board meeting was convened at 6 p.m. with David Freeze, Steve Clark, Richard Taylor, Laurie Ward, Wanda Parks, Brooke Taylor and Tim Safrit attending.
David welcomed everyone.
The financial report was shared with all present. Total expenses for the Bare Bones race was $710.64, with income at $1,667.00. This provided a profit of $856.36. It was discussed as to the amount to donate to Relay for Life. A motion was made by Richard in the amount of 2500.00, and Laurie seconded. The motion passed unanimously. Awards for the race were donated by Luann Fesperman at the Trophy House. A thank you will be sent on behalf of the SRR.
Currently, the balance for SRR is $15,825.08. Given the change in meeting date, the full financials were not ready, but Brooke will send these out to board members.
Wanda Parks gave the membership report stating that there are currently 191 total members. We are still waiting for some members to renew their membership.
The balance for the Weatherford account is $17,706.60. David has contacted Steve Weatherford for his opinion on dispersal of these funds, but no decision has yet been made.

David has been attending Ordinance meetings in Salisbury, with the final (?) meeting to be held next Wednesday. This should complete the meetings, but if they continue we will need a representative from SRR to attend.
Currently we need one more male and female member for the Dragonboat Team. Shirts are being ordered; they will be drifit with a blue logo. All members will need to attend the practice. Further communications will come from Laurie and Brooke.
As of the next meeting (August), we will have a new board member: Wayne Crowder has agreed to join the board. Laurie moved that we accept the new member, and Richard seconded. The motion passed unanimously.
David’s summer bike trip will begin in Washington state on June 11 and end in Wisconsin about July 25th.
The Fall Beginning Runner’s Class begins on September 7, and will run for 7 more weeks. It will be held at Novant.
The “Learn to Ride” event may have to be sponsored exclusively by the SRR. We decided to table this topic until the Fall.
The South Rowan Y and Salisbury Y bicycle workstations have been installed. David is getting prices for stickers to be placed on the workstations, giving credit to the SRR for the donation of funds. These stickers can also be used to recognize new members, and for club members to proudly display on their cars.
The next board meeting will be held on Wednesday. August 9 at 6 p.m. at IHOP.
With no other new business, the meeting adjourned at 7:15 p.m.
