New Business

Felton Wright – Felton presented the proposed budget for the 2011 Breakfast on the Track race. A motion to approve the budget as presented was made, seconded and passed.

Jay Silvanima and Nancy Stedman – Jay and Nancy presented the proposed budget for the 2012 Tallahassee Marathon and Half Marathon. After a brief discussion, a motion to approve the budget as presented was made, seconded and passed.

Mark Priddy – Mark shared with the Board letters he had received from Kate Sullivan Elementary School students thanking the Board for the $300 in grant money they received for their running program.

Herb Wills – Herb informed the Board that due to budget constraints, Jacksonville (Duval County) will eliminate some high school sports during the 2011-2012 school year. Cross country is one of the sports to be eliminated. Members of the Jacksonville running community have set out to try and restore cross country running using private funds. Given the short time frame to raise funds, Herb brought this issue to the Board to decide whether or not GWTC would like to support the effort. Many Jacksonville schools run and compete in Tallahassee. After some discussion among Board members, there was a motion to contribute $500 to assist with the cause. The motion was seconded and passed.
