FLRC Board of Directors meeting on Wednesday, October 12th at 6:30 PM

The FLRC Board of Directors will be having its monthly meeting on Wednesday, October 12th, at 6:30 PM via Zoom. All our meetings are open to the public, so if you’d like to attend, send an email message to board-meeting@fingerlakesrunners.org to receive the Zoom connection details via auto-reply (this is necessary to keep Zoom trolls out of the meeting). If you’ve previously requested the Zoom link, you can use the same one you received before.

If you’d like to bring a matter before the Board, let me know too, and we can discuss adding it to the meeting agenda.

Our board meetings generally revolve around updates on club and committee activities, including a report on the club’s financial activity and position from the Finance Committee and coverage of recent past and near future races from the Race Committee.

This month’s meeting will include a presentation from the Ithaca Youth Bureau on their (FLRC-supported) youth running programs, share updates from the Philanthropy Committee, note continued access to the IHS track, provide discussion of whether to continue getting professional photos from all our events, work on our race calendar, welcome new race directors, and more.

I open each board meeting with a quick acknowledgment of those who have gone above and beyond in volunteering for the club in the past month. To give credit where credit is due in public, I’d like to thank the following people:

  • Pete Kresock once again did a great job directing the Danby Down & Dirty, introducing a new 23K course that uses the entire Abbott Loop.

  • Charlie Fay has been working with the race directors of the PGXC series to develop, coordinate, and mark a completely new course at TC3 for the upcoming race on October 30th. We’d love to see lots of FLRC runners join our teams for this hometown race!

  • Tonya Engst continues to put in significant amounts of time captaining the FLRC women’s cross-country teams, recruiting runners, helping with workouts, building teams, coordinating carpools and post-race lunch stops, and communicating with the PGXC race directors.
