Board Meeting Tue Sept 25 2007

Return to ((Activity Archive))

Attendance: Marla Husnik, Paul Nelson, Derek Brown, John Stacy, Chris Quietzsch

Scribe: John Stacy

__Meeting topics:__.

* Nomination of board members

* Junior Racing – new plan suggested by board

* Calendar of events for 2007-8 season

* __Board members__ will be elected at the next general meeting November 3. Most board members agreed they could stay with their posts. John Stacy volunteered to take the post of Secretary. A new representative for the juniors will be necessary since Chris Quietzsch is no longer a junior but all growd up!

*__Junior Racing Program__. Motion passed to ask club members to consider merging SNC juniors with Lakeside School juniors and to create a more focused program dedicated to participating in competition.

Background aspects:

** Lakeside School/SNC juniors combined coaching. Marla will be coaching Lakeside School Nordic team and plans to combine this with coaching of SNC juniors.

** Uncoupling of Junior Program from Summit lessons program: Marla voiced dissatisfaction regarding the combination of racing and the Summit lessons program. The commitment of all Saturdays throughout the season to a lessons program conflicts with racing activities. Marla therefore finds it untenable for herself to act as both instructor under the Summit and racing coach and for juniors to offer “lessons only” to some juniors while others are being coached for racing.

** Call for commitment to travel: Participation in competition will necessitate travel. Juniors (and parents) are asked to begin planning the season and discussing travel arrangements. The SNC is asked to brainstorm and consider arrangements that can help fund travel.

__“Calendar” of events__:

Bake sale in connection with this event? Need to E-mail JR.

Skate clinics: should get some dates down but Marla has made these flexible since she often “draws” participants from one clinic to the next.

Marla will be occupied with SNC Juniors/Lakeside on Saturdays.
