LaChute Road Runners’ Meeting

Tues. Sept 12, 1017 7:00;

 Library Members Present:  Tim Maloney, Fred Herbst, Brian Kiely,  Chuck Gijanto, Matt Karkoski, Jim and Linda Cunningham

The first item of business was a discussion of the upcoming Ragnar Relay:  Matt will be the Chairman for this event.  There are 11 or 12 people who will be working - times will be determined later (two shifts, set up time and take down time.)  Matt will check with Aaron’s to see when we can set up.  Jim will bring the banner and an extra tent.  Matt has police tape.  Heidi will take care of music.  Tracy will see about lights and cables.

Tim is planning the Rogers Rangers Ramble Run - to be held on Sat. Nov. 25th. at 10:30 by the lower falls.  The course will be the same as last year - he will see the Town about removal of a few downed trees and mowing of the path.  The run is free for LaChute club members and $10 for non-members.  Lunch will be provided.  The lunch location is to be decided. We will have LaChute club membership applications on hand.

In the future, Tim hopes to add a mountain run behind the golf course.   There would be an out and back 5K, and an additional mountain run for those interested. The run would be solely on trails.

Hannah Herbst is work ing of the t-shirt design - she has a couple of designs that she will run by the club.

A letter was read from Sierra Stacy who attended the High Peaks Running Camp through a sponsorship by the LaChute Club.  She wrote a remarkable summary of her week which sounds very worthwhile.  She will be a good role model to encourage other runners.

  A brief discussion of the Montcalm mile occurred - planning to encourage more on-line registrations by adjusting registration fees.  More discussion for the Montcalm Mile will occur at a later meeting; at which time we will start the RRCA club renewal for 2018.

Next meeting - Oct. 24th at 7:00 at the Library.
