2016 Gala Feedback
Another Gala is in the books! Thanks to our Gala Coordinator, Christine Clark, for doing such a great job organizing this year’s event. I really enjoyed the masquerade theme and loved seeing how creative our members were in embracing the theme. We had a live band this year that always kept the dance floor full, and we recognized many members for their accomplishments and contributions in 2015. We’d love to hear what you thought, so please visit http://dserunners.com/gala-feedback/ and take a few minutes to give us feedback for next year.
Gala Awards Corrections
If you feel you are missing a trophy or there was an error, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, February 7 with the details so we can discuss. Please verify that you meet the full criteria for the award to receive a trophy, including volunteer points, by visiting the Awards Criteria page on the DSE website: http://dserunners.com/awards/awards-criteria/
We’ll place a second order when I compile the full list, so please be patient while I follow up with everyone.
Double Dipsea Early Registration for DSE Members
Last year the race sold out in just a few hours, so we’ve made some changes for 2016. Regular registration will be split between two days: half of all available spots will open on Tuesday, March 15 at noon, and the other half on Saturday, March 19 at 3:00pm. DSE will also have a limited number of spots available for active DSE members to register early. Members interested in this opportunity must submit an interest form and meet certain requirements. Visit http://dserunners.com/dd/ for more details and submit the Interest Form by February 21. Those who qualify will receive an invitation to register via email. If you are not able to get one of these spots, you will still be able to try again during regular registration on March 15th or 19th.
First Board and General Meetings of 2016
Our first General Membership Meeting will be on March 13 at the Presidio Sports Basement following the St. Patrick’s Day 5K. Light snacks and coffee will be served starting at 10:30 am. All members are invited to hear club updates and help the DSE Board set priorities for 2016. Email me at email@example.com with agenda items. The first Board Meeting to prepare for the general meeting will be held on February 7, following the Spreckels Lake 5K.
