END OF SEMESTER

This week is the last of classes before finals, so the end of the track season is pretty near. However, that doesn't mean Track Club isn't active! Make sure to stay updated through the Facebook page and Herdfinder for information about the Summer Track Series, local running partners, the Movin 5k, and any other activities that club members may be organizing!

 

POST FINALS WISCONSIN DELLS TRIP

A post-finals trip to Wisconsin Dells is being discussed as a possible club activity. We would be driving to the Dells on one morning, staying the night, and returning the next day (at least, thats the plan for now). If you are interested, please vote on the Facebook page for which dates work for you!

UPCOMING: MOOVIN 5K

This year's Moovin 5k will be held on June 3rd. We encourage any and all members to volunteer, participate, and force family and friends to run the 5k! Therefore, please clear your schedule so that you can be in Madison for the 3rd! More information about volunteering will be available in the coming weeks.

LAST WEEK: END OF YEAR MEETING

 

Last Wednesday, we had our end-of year annual meeting, where we updated some important points of the bylaws regarding vice president positions, appointed positions, and board member requirements to better fit with the current club. Full bylaws be found here.

We also discussed possible changes for formal next year and cross country practices, so make sure to keep updated at the beginning of next semester!

 

 

FEMALE TEAM JACKETS
If you are a female cow who rented out a team jacket and are not planning on running cross country, make sure to contact Sara Kaiser about returning it, preferrably as soon as possible!

From his own recap: "Over 150 entries, 31 events, 7 1st place finishers, 4 meet records broken, 3 days away from home, 2 trophies, and 1 speedy Australian" were what was needed to bring home the 1st place team trophy for men and third for women!
