Minutes from February 22 Pine Belt Pacer Meeting
 
Update on club shirts -
The club has decided, per the request of members, to create a line of race shirts.  Audrey Jackson, club VP, is currently finalizing a design.  All shirts must be pre-ordered and will be available for order in a dri-fit t-shirt, singlet, and/or long sleeve.  A minimum number will need to be met for any item to be ordered.  The shirt design and ordering information will be made available on the Web site. 
 
Pine Belt Pacer Dinner - March 3, 2007
We are still taking RSVP's for the dinner so if you haven't done so, you still have time!  This year's dinner features a buffet and silent auction, along with the presentation of the 2006 awards.  It will be held at the Power House Restaurant on the Southern Miss campus. 
 
Gran Prix Update -
The Gran Prix schedule is set and available on the Web.  Race volunteer liaisons are also listed, and these individuals will be looking for volunteers.  Please let them know if you are interested in volunteering for a race.  To be eligible for a Gran Prix Award, you must volunteer for at least one race. 
 
Pine Belt Pacer E-Newsletter -
Beginning on March 5, all members will receive the first edition of the Pine Belt Pacer E-Newsletter.  The newsletter will be a bi-monthly communication tool in which will include all Pacer news.  Any member wishing to include anything in the newsletter must submit that information by Saturday evening prior to the email going out on Monday (48 hours prior).  Submissions may include club runs, race information, new members, questions for club members, etc....  Information can be emailed to PineBeltPacerNews@yahoo.com.  This new format is an effort to bring our club to the next level and streamline our communication efforts. 
 
Along with our e-newsletter, we would like to encourage members utilize the Discussion Forum on PineBeltPacers.org.  This is a great tool to communicate any and all information to club members in between newsletter editions.
