Upcoming races—

The One In 5K is set for April 22nd at Knox. Family Crisis Council has this race. Luann needs to see the race director about medals.

The Teens with a Mission race is set for April 28th at First Presbyterian Church. Start is 7pm for the 5K, moved up one hour to avoid darkness.

The Girls on the Run 5K is at North Iredell High School in Olin on April 29th. David and Amanda will work this race to save on high timing expenses.

Bare Bones, SRR’s own race is set for May 6th at Knox. The date was changed because PD cannot work a race on Memorial Day Saturday due to high school graduation.

The Ed Dupree race is set for May 20th at East Rowan. We donate half of the timing fee for this race due to Debbie Suggs annual meeting dinner donation.

GNC is likely going to have a new race to benefit the PD Foundation on October 7th. More to come.

Knox Middle School construction—Steve reported that he is touch with several key players in the new school construction and nothing has been finalized on when it will start. Once it does, several races there may be affected.

Race videos resumption—Amanda had mentioned that we need a more powerful laptop to drive the popular finish line videos. She is working on pricing.

Special Olympics—SRR has already worked the adult and high school event at Catawba on April 4th and is set to work the elementary and middle school event at West Rowan High on April 20th.

Rowan Helping Ministries—for the first time since April of 2020, we are not going to be needed to serve lunches for two consecutive weeks. More volunteers are returning to RHM.

New bibs—David will order enough new generic bibs to likely get us through the rest of 2023.

Novant sponsorship check—It has been paid.

Beginning Runners Class—Going well with about 15-20 possible graduates, depending on PD final numbers.

Board needs—Karen is on an extended leave, meaning the board must find at least one new board member to meet bylaw requirements.

Chronamix needs—3 of our clocks are in good shape, two are likely defunct for good. The board voted to buy one more chronamix, likely at about $430, motion by Luann and seconded by Jasen. Unanimous approval.

David’s summer trip—He plans to leave in late July right after Dragonboat and be back before the first race in September and fall BRC class.

Next board meeting—May 10th, likely at Mario’s near Cleveland.
