RCGC Indoor Distance Track Meet recap - 1/22/12: Picked up 2 new club members as a result of the race. Get it together earlier to allow more promotion time and more volunteers. It went well except for the distance Medley Relay which proved to be a challenge due to the counting of the laps. Need more volunteers to help with it.

Winter Wonderland 5 Mile: Gina went over the P&L for the race. Made $700. Had left over awards, and some food left over. Bought too much food and needed a few more volunteers.

Valentine Day Race: Todd met with Steve Kruse, Paul Longo, and Rachel Bea from NKU on January 30 to go over details. Todd went over the status. Numbers about 20 down from last year at this time. Shirts and Awards have been ordered, and on the way. Club is responsible for packet pickup, and finish line.

Leap Day Race: Still looking for a location, Todd has not heard back from the Holy Grail. Turfway Park is a possibility.

Split the Pot Prediction Run: Todd needs to contact Hamilton County Park Board to reserve Fernbank Park.

Memorial Day Race 36 - Need a Race Director. Will get working on it after the Valentine’s Day Race.
