NEW BUSINESS

1. Carol O. represented CRW at the April 11 TVA meeting in Kerrville. Three other CRW members also attended. Topics discussed included:

  • Due to health issues, Susan M. will switch from Southwest Regional Director to Southwest Deputy Regional Director. Andy Thomas will take on responsibilities of the Southwest Regional Director.
  • Three clubs in San Antonio, the Randolph Road Runners, San Antonio Pathfinders, and the Texas Wanders, are considering merging in the future into one club due to diminishing numbers of members in each club and some members belonging to more than one of the clubs.
  • Tentatively, the next TVA meeting will be 11/8/2024 – 11/10/2024 in Rockport.

2.  Volunteers are needed to develop a Sun Rise walk this summer. A YRE can be used for the walk. A date is to be determined.  Please let Carol know if you would be interested in leading this walk.

3. Stephanie is tentatively planning the next walk event in Bastrop on 9/28/2024.
