There were over 100 kids, for many of them it was their first race. A few things were recommended for next year: that there be a chute at the finish, that there be course maps with places marked for volunteers to stand and the Kidz logo will be put on the shirts. All in all, a huge success. A. Phelan reported there are over 300 registrants so far. Volunteers have been given assignments. There will be 17 gallons of water at the water stops. TR and Kenny Hewson will mark the course prior to Friday. There will be water at the finish. Doug will bring mile markers. Mike Pagedriving right to finish line.

E-mail from Jim Lacey

S. Hewson had sent out an e-mail from Jim Lacey, who is Karen Giroux’s husband. Jim wanted Shari to send the e-mail, which was for a Dance to raise money for baseball, to all of Wicked. It is thought that allowing this to happen may causeother members to want their e-mails forwarded as well, which is not the intent of Wicked. Motion by M.

Shari Hewson

8/8 – Shari will inform Jim of this decision.

Campbell to allow requests of this nature to be put into our newsletter, space permitting, or on our Facebook page, but not via e-mail. Second by P. Raymond. Motion carried unanimously.
