Commuter Equivalent Challenge
- Getting People involved:
Hannah/RJ idea: meet up with new members or prospective members take them on a run to welcome them.
- Getting 2021 members enrolled:
Alex is working with Krissy to set up sign ups.
Alex: moving our website from one server to ‘DreamHost’ server; process can be ‘bumpy’; scheduled to start on Saturday 10/17/20; email could be disrupted.
Action Item: Alex is looking for a backup or lead person for email support.
Jim: consensus of the board is that our policy when contacted by charities for donations, we would not contribute to as a club, but would encourage members to consider supporting.
- Winter TNT at Occom Pond:
There are enough community and Dartmouth members using the area that we don’t want to show up en masse without masks - Town of Hanover and Dartmouth College want us to be role models for their communities.
Next meeting: Monday, November 16th, 2020. Zoom link to be sent before the meeting.
