It is time to start organizing and advertising for this year’s season of the Huntsville Hurricanes Track Club. Steve Jones has made suggestions about who to send this email to (that would be all you lucky people that I was able to come up with email addresses for!). This is by no means exclusive – please feel free to forward this email to anyone else that you think may be interested. It is a great club that usually runs for a couple of months in the spring for kids in grades 3-8. Practices are twice weekly. The only necessary piece of equipment is running shoes. Last year, the club could not run due to the construction related to the G8.
We are looking for people to become involved as coaches (there is funding for coaching training) as well as administration. Remember, many hands make light work. The more the merrier! Many of the parents who have been involved (myself included), no longer have kids in elementary school.
I would propose that we have a planning/information meeting in the next few weeks. I know that you are all busy people but perhaps we could get a “critical mass” and get things going. I would suggest either the 10th, 15th or 16th of February. The dates are open and the venue would depend on the number of people. Evening meetings have worked best in the past. Please let me know if you are interested in helping and what dates would or would not work.
