New Business

Charles Futch and Susan Drake provided an overview to the Board of the Thornton Rd extension planned through the Miccosukee Greenway. They compared the options that are being considered and provided a map which displayed the different scenarios. One option on the table will cause them to lose their home due to a road being paved on their property. They are hoping for an outcome that will not only benefit the project in the least disruptive manner, but will also enable them to keep their home.

Herb Wills presented a proposal for a new club race at Apalachee Regional Park. He suggested the race may be held in late December due to few races being staged that time of year. After some discussion by the Board, the suggestion was tabled until next month’s Board meeting.

Judy Alexander presented the proposed 2011 Bowlegs 5k budget on behalf of the race director, Bill Hillison. A motion was made to approve the budget. The motion was seconded and passed by unanimous vote.

David Yon gave a wrap up of the Turkey Trot races. There was approximately $96k in revenue and $73k in expenses. The $23k profit will be divided 50% to GWTC and 25% each to the Tallahassee-Leon Shelter and the Refuge House.

Bill Lott discussed the GWTC Equipment Policy Statement 2002-6 which gives guidance on race equipment rental fees and policies. He requested clarification as to whether schools are charged rental fees. There was also discussion on whether fees should be reevaluated given that the policy was written in 2002. No decisions on either issue will be decided until Vicky Verano, the GWTC equipment manager, is available to discuss.

Jackie McDaniel presented the proposed 2011 GWTC 30k/15k budget. A motion was made to approve the budget, seconded and passed unanimously.
