8:05 PM CST - Gary started the meeting. Except where noted, Gary inititiated the discussion on each of the following topics.

WMA Team Support
Gary has spoken with Team Manager Phil Greenwald, and there are over 1800 USA athletes. We have $8000 for team support. Gary was thinking about a small tent that would be staffed by one volunteer to answer questions for USA Athletes. Marilyn Mitchell is assisting Phil as an additional WMA Meet Track & Field Manager. John Oleski will be helping Phil. Mary Rosada will be helping LDR folks. Gary will try to get her more help.

There will be four 10x10 tents for additional shade. A physical therapist is available to attend if we want him. SoCal will have a therapist also, who will have extra time to help other athletes.

A get-together has been set up for athletes on Sunday, July 10th. Tickets can be purchased online now (Visa CC needed.) The restaurant can handle up to 200.

NSG Support
Lee Hess is the chair now. Jim Flanik said there are over 270 javelin throwers, so they're looking for an additional facility. Jim will be there on June 16th. Sandy & Carroll will also be there.

Albuquerque - 60 Meter Results Resolution
All events but the 60 are reliable, and the respective record applications will be submitted. Finish places in the 60 have been captured, but the times are suspect.

Timing Proposal
Discussed having the executive committee approve and hire the company in charge of timing. Bidders fee will be in place. Much discussion. The National office is holding revised bid documents, waiting for us to make a decision regarding this issue.

Drug Testing
The process is moving along and will be in place for the World and National meets.

We may have another conference call in June.

9:00 CST - Meeting adjourned.
