Hello club members, We are finally back in our normal routine of monthly board meetings after taking a bit of a break for the summer, so I’d like to update you on what’s new. We’ve decided to add a new position on the PPTC board, and I’m happy to announce that Melissa Hylton will be joining the board as our liaison with USAT and WTC. She will be in charge of maintaining contact with USAT and keeping the club informed of new information regarding USAT as well as various races that will qualify people for regionals, nationals, Kona, etc. We’ve noticed that a lot of people aren’t aware of all the races out there that will qualify you for various championship races, and thought it would be helpful to get the word out to everyone on a regular basis.
As far as news for our September meeting, I’m happy to announce that Carwyn Sharp will also be joining the board. He will assist the board with organizing events that will allow for some coaches in the club to help out and teach various skills. Increasing attendance at club events was also discussed as well as the possibility of having incentives/monthly drawings for attendance. We’d like to hear what others have to say about these ideas, and if anyone has suggestions, we welcome you to voice them to the board.
