Sunday January 24 - Annual Virtual General Meeting

We will hold our Annual General Meeting via Zoom on Sunday 24 January at 9:00am.


Details of how to connect via Zoom available email us boldcoastrunners@gmail.com to connect. Please note that while you should be able to access the meeting from your phone, it is preferable to use a laptop.


Agenda:

  1. Presidents remarks

  2. Vice President's Report

  3. Secretary's Report

  4. Treasurer's Report (approval of accounts)

  5. Election of officers

  6. Proposed revisions to membership arrangements and costs

  7. Other


We hope as many members as possible will join us, though it is technically a public meeting. The meeting should not last more than about 1 hour (we got a little sloppy last year and it took 1.5 hours - but then we having breakfast at the same time!)


If there is anything additional you would specifically like to have discussed, while you can bring it up under "Other" at the end of the meeting, it would be helpful if you could give club officers advance notice of the issue (s). Please do so by email to boldcoastrunners@gmail.com rather than this entire group.


We look forward to seeing you on video next Sunday.

John, Eric, Jonathan, Ann, Mike, Donna


RRCA COVID guidelines:

  • Don’t show up if you are feeling ill or have flu-like symptoms.

  • Don't share fluids. Carry your own fluids to avoid contact with others on course.

  • Don't share towels, food, gels, or any other item that runners normally share freely.

  • Do wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using the port-a-john.

  • Do not spit or “nose rocket” your nose in public – bring along tissues or a small towel or a good old-fashioned hanky if you need to get rid of some snot during the race.

  • Do practice social distancing - ensure appropriate spacing between runners; the current recommendation is at least six feet of separation. (addendum from Phil: pay attention to which way the wind is blowing and adjust accordingly for distancing, snot rockets, etc.)

  • Do avoid close-group selfies.

Who we are: a welcoming, encouraging and supportive group of crazy people who run the roads and trails of way Downeast Maine, the Canadian Borderlands, and beyond. We welcome everyone, from beginners to old-timers and from tortoises to hares. We run distances ranging from 1 mile to 50 miles and on anything from smooth tar to rugged single track. If it's hot: we run, if it rains: we run, if it's snowy: we run in snowshoes, if icy: in spikes. We just run, mostly for fun, but some of us are also competitive!

Club Runs: most Sunday's at 7:00am somewhere in coastal Washington County or just over the border in Hancock County or Charlotte County, Canada (location and time set by group leader).

Other Runs: if you're running and want to invite others to join you members can send out a group message with time, date, place & details to boldcoastrunners@googlegroups.com

Races / Events: see "Local Events" for details. Club Members are eligible for event discounts: contact us for details at boldcoastrunners@gmail.com


As both beginners and long-timers we enjoy non-competitive weekly group activities hosted by individual members, as well as engaging in friendly competition and organizing and participating in local events, or travelling together to more distant events. We:

  • promote participation in active, human-powered, endurance-based outdoor sports, particularly running;

  • encourage, support and challenge each other as athletes and would be athletes of all ages and abilities;

  • organize weekly group training sessions;

  • promote and support existing races and events;

  • organize, and promote participation in, our own local events;

  • obtain discounted entry to some races for our members.
