We continue to do lots of good stuff as a club, including supporting the Stevenson Cross Country teams, dog shelters, Food bank , Klickitat Community Center etc., and give scholarships to local student athletes. It’s time to thank our many volunteers and club officers.
Starting at 2 pm we will have our Race Calendar and General meeting and then at 4 pm have our Potluck and BYOB party including “minute to win it” games with semi-fabulous prizes!
Please bring a potluck item to share with all and your own drink.
Please attend the race calendar/general meeting if you intend to put on a race with CGRC or if you have talents to lend to our club.
Location: North Bonneville Event Center
Accomplishments: We have accomplished a non-profit tax status so that races can take tax credited donations, and we have a functioning website again. We once again have Wednesday night track workouts!
To do: We still need to figure out a way to take membership applications and pay online so that we can better manage our memberships and serve our members. I would also like to have a 5k run/walk a month.
Races: How this works is…..The Columbia Gorge Running Club (CGRC) signs up for membership in the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). CGRC then creates a Race Calendar. The CGRC president puts these races on the RRCA calendar and then these races are eligible for insurance coverage. Also, if your race is CGRC sanctioned, you can take tax credited donations as we are a tax exempt charitable organization. In return, CGRC asks that all race results are posted in a reasonable amount of time and that the race director is organized enough to ensure every participant is safe and accounted for. We offer lots of help in this area.
Thanks so much for all your support, hope to see everyone in December!
