Winter Flight topics discussed included:

Sponsor updates and ideas for more were discussed by all.

New Sarum will make Winter Flight the kickoff for their new brand name canned water. They will help us promote with several nearby brewery running clubs.

Catawba costs are $680 for the facility and maintenance this coming year. SRR will pay it.

Hoodie style and color were discussed. The board chose mint and gray as favorite options. David will pursue the possibilities.

Novant 2022—We hope to renew with Novant as primary sponsor. David will make the contact.

Race bibs 2022—Long-time supplier Electric City is no longer printing race bibs. SRR will have to find a new supplier and will hopefully finish out the 2021 with generic race bibs on hand.

Social media—Jasen bounced some ideas off the board. He and Patrick will work together to clear up the Facebook pages and boost Instagram.

New business—David mentioned that we needed to be more timely on securing RRCA insurance for the new year. This requires a final membership report on December 1. Teri will facilitate. David will apply for RRCA insurance with this information.
