David welcomed all board members to the January meeting, especially new board members Teri Shaw and Catherine Gilbert.
Brooke Taylor gave the treasurer’s report. She stated that the club has a balance on hand today of $11,791.38. Expenses for December 2017 were $9,537.82 and income was $2,801. The unusual expenses for the month included various charitable donations that are posted on the club’s website. David informed everyone that the Daily Mile/Healthy Rowan donation has been tabled for the time being. We will make that donation later.
Wanda Parks gave the membership report. The club has eight new members and total membership is now 151. Wanda also gave out copies of the annual budget, providing total expenditures and income expected in 2018.
David gave a report on upcoming races.
Winter Flight is January 28th. He deferred to later in the agenda on details.
The Valentine’s Day 5K is Feb. 17th in Cowan’s Ford. SRR will time it.
The Will Run for Food 5K will be February 24th at Centenary Methodist. SRR will time it.
The St. Patrick’s Day 5K, originally set for March 17th has been canceled by the JF Hurley YMCA.
The LAMB 5K will be held on March 24th in Mooresville. David and one other person will work it.
The Mt. Hope Church 5K will be held on March 31st at Salisbury Community Park. SRR will time it.
The Millbridge Elementary School 5K has also been canceled for April.
The Teens with a Mission 5K will be held this year on April 20th in Salisbury as originally planned.
The Girls on the Run 5K was held for the first time at Salisbury Community Park on Jan. 7th while partnering with SRR and Salisbury Parks and Recreation. Teri Shaw, Steve Clark, and David Freeze worked the race while Catherine Gilbert attended.
Food Lion has requested that SRR partner with them to do a 5K race in September, date TBD. The race was first held last year in October with SRR not involved on race day. The board agreed to work with Food Lion and manage the race that will be held at Food Lion #1 in Salisbury.
David mentioned recent Sport Often/RunSignUp issues pertaining to them requiring substantial personal financial info from the race organizers. SRR board members did not think that this was needed. David plans to continue conversations with them to make the process more user-friendly or look for another online race registration source.
Laurie Ward reported on the annual meeting, set for Saturday evening January 27th. She reports that all is set for food and plans were made for late registration/packet pick up and the awards portion of the meeting. Steve Clark will be the MC. Catherine Gilbert is going to contact a friend for entertainment. We still need a quality photographer for both the annual meeting and race day.
David reported on plans for Winter Flight on January 28th. Eliud Ngetich, the course record holder, is unlikely to attend. Efforts for volunteers, shirts, awards, cleanup, group leaders have been going well. The board would like to focus on 85-year-old Grant Egley who will seek the NC state age group state record for the 8K.
David complimented the current board makeup as enthusiastic, something that he considers mandatory for a successful SRR.
There was no new business.
The next board meeting was moved from February 14th to the 21st due to Valentine’s Day.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:14 p.m.
