Treasurer’s report – David Yon reported for Bonnie Wright by distributing copies of the Budget and Treasurer’s reports, which included recent disbursements and receipts.

Race Director Coordinator report – Charlie Yates discussed the re-established Grand Prix Guidelines, which will be used to determine race eligibility for Grand Prix status. There was discussion about race insurance. It was determined that GWTC races are automatically covered under GWTC’s insurance policy, but non-GWTC races would have to acquire their own insurance. Charlie also discussed the date of the Pine Run and expressed concern that it overlaps with an FSU home game.

Race Director(s) report(s) – Allison Eagen and Grace Flynn discussed a race they are coordinating which will be called the “PT Prowl”. The race will be in October, which is Physical Therapy month, and the race will benefit the American Heart Association.
