The DSE Board held its second General Membership Meeting on December 13, 2015. For those of you who weren’t able to make it, here’s what went down:

  • Double Dipsea Update:  There will be a limited number of early registration slots available to active DSE members in good standing. If a large number of people are interested, there will be a lottery for the slots. Look forward to an official announcement come January!
  • Race Fees:  The cost of race permits has risen considerably in the past few years, and at least 7 of our races now require double permits.  To cover these additional costs, the Board will likely have to do something that’s not been done in 10 years—raise race fees. One possibility is an increase to $5/members and $10/non-members. We really, really want your feedback on this, so please do contact us and let us know what you think. Any changes in price will likely not take effect until at least the second half of the year.
  • Standardization of Age Groups:  As you may have noticed, DSE’s age group divisions are not consistent—some age groups cover a five-year period, while others span 10 years. Starting in January 2016, all age groups from 18 – 80 will be in five-year increments to be consistent with RRCA recommendations. Please note that this will take extra time, and age division points totals may not be updated until a week after each race.
  • Next Meeting: We can’t give you an exact date yet, but look for the next General Membership Meeting to be held sometime during the first few months of 2016. But you don’t need to wait until then to make your voice heard! Please contact any member of the Board (you’ll find our contact info on the DSE website) with your comments, critiques, and suggestions. We want to hear from you!
