The BOD has decided to try something different this year in that, instead of having one general membership meeting per year, which coincides with the BOD elections, we’re going to try quarterly meetings, the first of which will be on Monday, March 3. We’ve booked it at the Knights of Columbus hall from 6:00-10:00 (Same location as MOTM race, on the East end of Salem Common).
From 6:00-7:00, we will conduct our regular BOD meeting, and following that, we will have a special guest speaker. The guest speaker will be Kevin Sullivan. Kevin is a marathoner and ultra runner, but his biggest accomplishment is finishing 5th at the Western States 100miler.
Following Kevin’s talk, we’ll field questions of Kevin, and then questions from you guys about what’s up with the club.
Also, Wicked is buying pizza for the meeting, and the bartender will be on duty as well so we can grab a brew to wash down all that pizza! (sorry, but you’ve got to buy your own beer). Please respond to Alison Phelanalphelan2@gmail.com so she can get a rough head count for ordering pizza. We dont want anyone going home hungry! I’ll post the agenda for the evening on the Wicked website once it is finalized next week.
We’d love to get a huge turnout for this meeting. If this one goes well, we’ll continue with the meetings every quarter. This is your club Wicked peeps, so come on out and see what goes on behind the scenes, and listen to a great guest speaker! Hope to see a bunch of you at this. C’mon, who’s in?
