We had a meeting with Sally from the Joplin Y about the 2016 New Years Day Chilly 5K and kids 1 mile fun run. We received the route details and tentatively set positions for the runs. For the ones that missed last evenings meeting, we will be having another meeting on Tuesday December 15th at 7 PM at the Joplin Red Cross.
Steven Kreeger Sr. and Milton Grissom will be checking the route for possible hazards and also if simplex frequency can be used for the race. I am working on getting a larger map done for the races. The kids race will start at 11:00 AM with the chilly 5K starting at 11:30 AM or after all the runners of the kids race have completed. The awards presentation is scheduled for 12:30 PM. We need to have everyone participating to wear their ARES vest.
If you missed the meeting and would like to help, please either contact Milton or myself. Also if you missed last night’s meeting, please plan on making the December 15th meeting. We still need a couple of volunteers to help man areas along the route. If you have any questions, you can either contact Milton or myself.
