Discussion of BRR
BRR RDs, Katie Keier and Quatro Hubbard, gave the Board an update on the race and requested a raise in entry fee, from $95 to $125. The new fee structure charged by Nova Parks now collects roughly 10% of total revenue, much more than before. In addition, inflation has increased substantially since the race entry fee was last changed. An increase in race entry fee requires a Board vote. Tracy motioned and Chelsea seconded that the entry fee be raised to $125. The motion was carried unanimously.
Katie Keier stayed on the call to discuss awards and the party. The venue has been booked and Katie will take care of doing the awards.
Minutes from prior meetings
The Board reviewed the minutes from the September 12, October 3, and October 26 meetings. Keith moved and Tracy seconded to approve the minutes. They were approved unanimously.
Promotion by Alex Papadopoulos on Club channels
Alex Papadopoulos is helping organize a Greek running tour, which he would like to promote on the VHTRC Facebook group. The Board discussed this and Jon agreed to get more information from Alex before making a final decision.
Tracy acknowledged the Turkey Chase on November 24. Quatro should have the new VHTRC shirts by then and plans to unveil them there.
