  1. Round Table
  1. Fun Run - September 29th - Wendy Pringle will chair, but is asking for some people to shadow for future years, concern from David McKay that fundraising goal is communicated to kids and he feels that some in his classes are disappointed in reaching goal, and some might feel they need to go back to sponsors and ask for more money
  2. Should goal change?  DIfferent $ amount?  Different goal for kids (distance run, laps)?  Corporate sponsors? Kids have personal goal of increasing the number of sponsors
  3. Three months’ lead time now to ask for sponsorships.
