Executive Committee Meeting in Spokane August 6th

 

The Executive Committee met on Wednesday evening for over two hours and discussed a wide range of topics.

 

We began work to develop a ‘standard’ timeline for all USA Championship meets which will establish milestones for posting of entries, close of entries, detail schedule etc.

 

Discussed the website or lack there of and the establishment of a ‘discrete’ Masters Fund’.

 

Some of us have not submitted expenses which will cause problems as we get closer to year end and try to estimate actual verses budget. If you are guilty please submit your expense but in the mean time please send Joy and me an estimate of what you have not submitted.

 

Annual meeting should be very interesting. Start making plans now!

 

USA Indoor and Outdoor Championship BIDS for 2011

 

Have not received a single BID for 2011 meets and as you know the meets are awarded at the Annual Meeting so if interested it’s time to get serious.

 

 

USA Outdoor Championships

Spokane August 7 – 10

 

Wow! Except for running behind schedule on Friday this was as good as it gets. Thanks to all the MTF Committee members who contributed. I’ve received nothing but praise for the LOC, meet management, games committee and the officials. The Saturday evening dinner was terrific with Dave Clingan handing out Athlete of Year awards and the special recognition of David Pain. Even the band was great.  

 

North, Central American and the Caribbean WMA Regional Championships August 28 – 31, 2008

 

There are some concerns about Clermont regarding the LOC management, weather and facilities but as of now it is the site for the 2008 North American meet and the 2009 USA Championships. Four members of the Executive Committee will be in Clermont for the meet and will report back on what is necessary for our USA meet in 2009.

 

See you in Reno at the Annual Meeting!
