Review /approve last meeting minutes: June 13 meeting minutes were approved.
Old Business: Nothing new on old business.
Financial Report: Ryan reported that the club has a balance of $16,886.00 as of 7/11/11. There are 2 checks currently outstanding.
Merchandise Inventory Report: Todd finished doing an inventory of t-shirts. Set up online store through RunSignUp.com. A couple of people ordered singlets.
Membership: Club currently has 122 members. For the year there are 34 new members. Todd suggested setting up a referral program. If a member brings in another member; they get a discount on their membership.
Website: Most of the website is up to date. The board decided against a bulletin board due to current trends and issues with spammers in the past. Need to add a member page and advertising page. Marty can create the page but he needs a template, a sample page from another site, or a basic design.
Training Programs: Speed Program: 8 people attended the July 7 speed program. Gina needs coverage for the July 21 when she is on vacation.
Marathon Program – July 9 – the Army was also running at Tower Park so Terry could not tell if anybody was there for the program. Terry decided to move it to Newport on the Levee at 7:00 AM to avoid the heat.
Walking Program: On hold for Summer
Group Runs: The weekend group runs were postponed due to low attendance.
Tue – Numbers have been about 5-10 runners since. Laura took over. No one showed up at Winton Woods so Laura moved it back to the city center.
Newsletter: Articles for newsletter are due July 11. Jascia Redwine will be the featured runner for Summer. Goal is to have the newsletter ready for the goody bags for the Midsummer Trail Run.
2011 balance - Todd said that the only races that the club has on hand is the Summer Cross Country Series, the Summer Trail Run. There will no 11/11/11 Race due to logistics, cost and lack of interest. Todd presented a Club Anniversary Race Budget for November. Need to get sponsors, and permissions before race can proceed.
Summer Trail Run – August 11, 2011 Gina gave a quick update for the race. Cincinnati Park Board approved us for use of Mount Airy Forest. 4 people have signed up. Terry, Dave and Gina need to go over the course.
Other: Club may be needed to help with timing the Brian Rohne Race on August 13, Panther Prowl 5k on August 20 and Check Your Genes 5k on October 1. Volunteers may be needed to help with timing these races.
Due to the number of events happening on the weekend of August 12, 13, 14, the club decided against doing a club social.
Miscellaneous: Nothing to report or add
Next Board Meeting: Next board meeting is Monday August 1, 2011 at 6:30 PM at Courtyard Marriott.
