Steve questioned what is the goal of K&Q? Are we getting too many races and stretching the few members that always must show up at every race? Foot Rx wants to do more to promote the K&Q races but feels that the club should make the K&Q race more “prestigious” and should have a more balanced slate of races between the distances. Motion made and approved to, at next meeting, come up with limits on number of events at each distance.
Other New Business:
Mary shared Thank You card from Girls on the Run.
Bob asked if we could update SFTC brochure for War Party 10K. Sheri will update and e-mail to Board members for approval.
