Heart Mini-Marathon - March 28: Todd set up team for Heart Mini Marathon. Todd submitted paperwork for getting booth at Heart Mini Expo. Should hear about approval in March. Todd also reserved two room at the Westin for the Heart Mini-Suite. With the early start for the 15k, discussed what the food should be for the suite.

Circle Tail 5k: Contacted Todd and race organizer decided to change the format of the event so club help will not be needed.

Flying Pig Marathon - May 2: Discussed whether to get a booth at the expo. Two issues that the board pointed out were the cost ($400) and the volunteers to man it. However the expo gets at least 10,000 people over 2 day period so it might present a great opportunity to get info out about the club.
