Bike Race

  • After some discussion, decided to have the experts finish through the McPhee Overlook trail. Discussed possible alley traffic between cars, riders and runners. Also discussed adding a small prize ($50 - $100) to the top finisher who sets the new Expert time record. Ed called the vote to change, seconded by Scott C., and the motion passed. Will notify residents in that alley area a week prior to race.

  • Shawn Gregory rode the Expert route this past weekend, and will load all the updated maps onto the website this week.

  • Talked about adding a “squeeze” near the finish line, allowing only the space for 1 rider to get through the finish at a time.

  • Fun Run will not be timed. Endurance will start at 8am, Fun Run at 8:30am, and Expert, Sport and Beginner will depart at 9:50am, just before the parade starts at 10am.

  • Ed Merritt will be at the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde Race this Saturday, and will pick up the Sports drink mix donated by Tailwind Nutrition as well as give out our postcards for the bike race.

  • Bike race website has been updated, take a look and give any feedback for ideas and changes to Susan Lisak. www.doloresrace.com

  • Talked about getting bandannas for the Fun Run with the Rotary logo but no year information on them so they can be re-used in future years. Shawna will follow up with the printers on them.  Fun Run pricing is set at $10 per adult, $5 per child 18 & under.

  • Discussed using some of the student art work created last year as silent auction items, and see whether to repeat the project this year with the art students. Scott will research.

  • Dave Sanford reported a lot of leftover t-shirts in storage, along with some leftover goodie bag items that can be re-used for this year’s bags. Extra utensils and paper products in storage were donated to the Summer Lunch Program.

  • Next bike race meeting is May 30th, 6:30am.

An anonymous donation was made in the amount of $1000 to the Imagination Library and $500 to the Dolores Summer Lunch program. Rotary is going to contribute another $100 to the Lunch Program, for a total of $600 for the Lunch Program.

 

Jeff Pope - with KSJD Radio (ksjd.org)

  • Produces 5 daily newscasts a week

  • KSJD began in 1986 with a budget of $25K in the red, and today has a budget of $630K, employing 8.5ppl

  • They reside in the Montezuma bank building, along with the Sunflower theatre.

  • KSJD considers themselves a media organization, with audio, website, and digital access.

  • Major funding is through individuals and corporate sponsors, making up 80% of the annual revenue.

  • Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) gave KSJD $135K this year. With possible changes in the future for CBP to give funding, this may impact the future of the radio station as well.

  • KSJD has a large footprint of coverage around the Four Corners Region

  • Jeff Pope’s vision for the future is growing modestly, increasing entertainment, cultural aspects, getting digital cameras to record shows and feature them on Rocky Mountain PBS, as well as growing the news and reporting more local issues like the county commissioner’s meetings on Mondays.

  • Their sustained giving programs brings in about $35K annually.

  • Bike Race
    • Discuss whether to amend the course for the Expert riders to start the same way as the Sport & Beginners, but then go through the McPhee overlook trail and end the same route as the Endurance riders. If we decide to move ahead, the course record will need to be re-established, so no record breaking prizes will be given out this year.
    • Back alley route has been slightly changed to go down 4th street instead of 3rd due to private property.
    • Tailwind nutrition agreed to give us some of their product for their race. Rocky Gingg will be at the 12 hours of Mesa Verde this Saturday, where we can pick it up. Is anyone going to that event that can pick up the donation items for us?
  • Dolores Summer Lunch Program - $138 was collected via the group last week. Discuss whether to offer any other financial support and if there is availability in the budget.

    • Noted that the bike race proceeds will go towards Dolores High School Scholarships and RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) recipients from Dove Creek, Dolores, and Mancos.

    • Back alleys are clear, and Shawna talked to the Town, and they saw no problems with us utilizing the alleyways during the bike race.

  • No change on the Rotary clubrunner website.  $420/year for subscription, Rocky and Susan mentioned the site was easy to navigate and upload info to and had all the past history of club info.

  • No more bingo until maybe July 29 at the Dolores River Campground to benefit the Dolores River Campground. The campground may serve alcohol and set up live music. No one is set yet as beneficiaries for the September and October bingos. Rocky wanted to try setting up an additional bingo in August and will fill out the necessary paperwork should we move forward with that. If it goes well, Rocky said we should consider running bingo all summer.

  • Question was posed about the Facebook page. Rocky has been upkeeping http://facebook.com/doloresrotaryclub. Any other pages or sites that may have been set up in the past are not known and are no longer being updated. Rocky will give Susan access to the FaceBook page to post and make changes.

Presentation -

Ashley Schrage, PTA President and Site Coordinator of the Summer Lunch Program

  • This is Ashley’s 3rd summer running the summer lunch program.

  • Served over 3200 meals over the last two summers, forecasting 1200 meals this season.

  • Program is 6 weeks long, begins in June with about 50 kids a day, Mon - Thurs, 11:30am to 12:30pm, free to kids 18 and under.

  • Most of the kids who attend would normally be wandering around the area during the summer months, many without adequate nutrition. This programs serves as a focusing point, giving them something to do and a place to go, along with a good meal.

  • There are different themed days to provide programming during lunch time, and this year Ashley is looking to expand the programming, like having the students harvesting food from the Montezuma school to farm program.

  • In need of many supplies, like forks, spoons, plates, bowls, napkins, paper towels, trash bags, soap, disinfectant spray, temperature gun, spray bottles etc.

  • Any supply donations can be dropped off to Scott Cooper at his office, or can be brought to the next Rotary meeting.

  • Working on partnering with a restaurant to provide the food for the program.

  • Ashley is also asking for any financial support the Rotary can provide. Members will discuss at next meeting.

  • A donation cup was passed around, and $138 was collected to help pay for an IR thermometer and other supplies.

Bike Race Meeting Minutes For: April 25, 2017

 

In Attendance: Dr. Burnside, Tom Seymour, Dave Sanford, Scott Cooper, Darwin Cooper, Ed Merritt, Mark Tucker, Shawna Valdez, Rocky Moss, Dani Gregory, Susan Lisak

 

Meeting Minutes:

  • 50 mile Endurance - decided to use the back alleys to get to the McPhee Overlook trail.  Shawna will talk with the Town of Dolores about it. This route will only be for the 50-milers and the Family Fun Run. The 31, 18 and 13-milers will keep the same route as years prior. Possible problems of back alleys could be foot traffic and blocking off parking.

  • Start time for the Family Fun Run was discussed and determined that 8:30am was the best time to start it, giving the runner’s time to get back and participate in the parade if needed. Will need to finalize route and create a map. Will start the same as the 50-milers along back alleys, but then will go under the bridge onto the River Trail for 2.5K, then turn around and come back for a total of 5K. Susan will run it to determine GPS coordinates of the 2.5K turnaround point.
  • Discussed whether to have a packet pickup available the day prior, maybe stationed at Kokopelli's or LizardHead. It was tabled for further discussion, but initial thoughts were that in prior years, there was not enough time to get the packets done any earlier unless we cut off registration earlier.

  • Packet pickup on the morning of the race will be open from 7am to 9:30am.

  • Discussed whether to spread out the start times for the 31, 18, and 13 mile racers. No, we want them to start at the same time with the fire truck acting as the pace vehicle until they start up the hill, which will spread them out. Worked well in years prior and that way they start just prior to the parade.

  • We checked in storage, and we have plenty of bibs for this years race. Shawna has the ties for the bibs.

  • Discussed whether we wanted to explore a better timing system.  Rocky has been in contact with Rocky Mountain timing systems (located in Mancos) for RFID chip timers and got an initial estimate of $600.  Will see if they will donate some of the cost or trade with sponsorship, or if we don't need bibs what the altered estimate would be.

  • Will keep the cash prizes the same as last year.  $100/$75/$50 for the top 3 in each class/category/gender.  $500 additional prize if anyone beats the 31-mile expert course record for men and/or women. Cash prize for the first rider to cross the cattle guard, one for each start time (either $50 or $100). Last year, we spent $1325 on prize money, which was lower than estimated because we didn’t have anyone in some of the age categories.

  • Counted trophies in storage and have around 60 of them, which will be given to the top 3 in each age group in each category. Possibly need 96 trophies if there is at least 3 in each age category.

  • Discussed whether it would be possible to sell raffle tickets through IMathelete.  No, since rules for raffles say that any tickets purchased must be paid with by cash. Will try to assign volunteers to sell raffle tickets during the race, and have some Rotarians sell them at their businesses.

  • Discussed whether to have the raffles go towards a specific cause and not just Rotary, which may get more people to purchase tickets.  Will decide at next business meeting what 3 causes the raffles will go towards. Decided that the raffle will be a general drawing for all the items that get donated to us.  The winners will get to pick the raffle item they want in the order that they get drawn.

  • Kokopelli told us that they will donate $500 in goodie bag items in exchange for their name/logo on T-shirt.

  • Discussed the need to further promote all the things that Rotary does before and during the race.

  • Rocky will spearhead advertising on Facebook. Thinks it would cost around $50. Will check with Chamber to see if they will donate the cost.

  • Discussed having postcards available for the Pueblo-to-Pueblo race as well as 12 hours of Mesa Verde. Discussed whether we could have a table at the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde (May 13) promoting Dolores, tourism, the bike race and Rotary. Maybe display a pic of the bike rider on the cliff above McPhee, or have copies of Zumag. Dani will reach out and see. Can sign up to volunteer at 12 hours of Mesa Verde thru IMathelete.

Meeting adjourned at 7:30am

Presentation by Karen Harbaugh from Muscanell Millworks (http://www.muscanell.com)
Hardwood Tree Report:
  • Standing hardwood volume has doubled in the last 50 years, with 48% more trees over 11” in diameter than in 1977.
  • The U.S. wood industry only harvests 42% of the annual growth, leaving a surplus each year to build forest reserves.
History of Muscanell Millworks
  • Doug Muscanell graduated with a forestry degree and worked in several aspects of the lumber milling process, then after visiting the area decided to settle down in Cortez and open up his own mill.  With meticulous quality standards, Doug and Karen began producing precisely-milled, long-length hardwood flooring specially adapted to the arid climate of the intermountain and southwest regions.
Company Information
  • Muscanell Millworks sells mainly to hardwood floor distributors, although it is possible to buy from them directly by appointment.
  • They also use the hardwood grindings and shavings to produce Woodchuck Fire Logs, which have no glues or other additives.
  • They take additional drying steps to bring the moisture content of their wood from 10% to a 5-7% moisture range prior to milling, which reduces shrinkage and movement in arid climates.
  • They reuse their wood by-product to heat their building
  • They are committed to quality, with a highly trained, quality conscious staff

Club Business & Announcements:  
  • Sponsor letters and forms are available on Google docs for personalization or handing out.  A few copies were delivered at the meeting, with thanks to Charley for filling one out immediately and being the first official sponsor!

Come dressed up in your finest!
  • Further discussion on Rotary’s stance on firearms and how it may impact our annual gun raffle. Since Rotary is taking the stance of not affiliating with firearms or organizations that promote firearms, it makes it difficult to hold a raffle where guns are in high demand.  Darwin suggested raffling a old musket that is really only for decoration. If we do go ahead with a gun raffle, then it was suggested a long gun be the raffle item.
  • Raffle items - we need to try to get any future raffle items donated to us, instead of the organization purchasing them.  It was mentioned that in order to complete the necessary paperwork to hold a raffle, we need to have the item in hand, either purchased or donated, with a breakdown of where the money is going. We will try to contact local hotels to see if they will donate a vacation package, will try for Dunton Hot Springs, a stay in Mesa Verde, a train ride, etc.  Scott and Susan will do some research and bring back info on Tuesday.
  • Bike race - after further discussion, it was decided not to try crossing Hwy 145 this year, but keep all the research for next year’s race.  The next bike race meeting will be Tuesday, April 25th, 6:30am.
  • Barbara Coloroso will be presenting at the Dolores High School gym on April 11th, 6pm.  She is the author of many books on parenting and bullying.  Scott expects around 300 people.  Free admission. Handouts on her lecture is available at https://doloresschools.org/

Club Business & Announcements:  6:45am
  • Commodities Report: Sue Fletcher has indicated to the club that the commodities availability will be light, forthcoming
  • Bingo report, March 28th for Operation Graduation- Allan Burnside reported that a total of $977 was raised for Operation Graduation. Next Bingo benefits the Dolores Community Center. Discussion ensued regarding our rent with the Dolores Community Center vs. rules regarding donations to an entity with which we do business, rent. Ed and Allan discussed, and we are not violating any terms of licensing as the money raised is a donation, separate from the one-time rent we pay. (may need further clarification on this from Ed/Allan)
  • Clarification of Rotary International Stance on Firearms in Conjunction with Rotary Club Fundraising or Affiliation:
    Dave Sanford brought to the Club's attention that Rotary has clarified its stance on firearms and association with Club Policy.  Rotary International has clarified its statement on firearms in its Rotary Code of Policies (LINK HERE) to state specifically:
"2.100. Clubs and Districts and Guns, Weapons or Other Armaments - Rotary clubs, Rotary districts and other Rotary Entities shall not sell or otherwise transfer ownership of guns, weapons or other armaments, nor participate in activities where such items shall be sold or given away, such as raffles, even if the Rotary Entity is not the owner of the item(s). Rotary clubs, Rotary districts and other Rotary Entities shall not conduct or sponsor any gun shows or other exhibitions involving guns, weapons or other armaments or accept sponsorship from any entity whose primary business is the sale or manufacturer of guns, weapons or other armaments. Rotary Code of Policies 12 June 2017 Sponsorships are relationships with other organizations which benefit the club or district or their project(s) in image-enhancing, promotional, monetary or other ways." (January 2017 Mtg., Bd. Dec. 96) Source: January 2017 Mtg., Bd. Dec. 96
 
This decision may impact the Dolores Rotary Club's annual pistol rifle, which typically takes place in December at our annual holiday dinner. Further discussion will ensue as to how we will address this issue. Item tabled for further investigation and discussion; Allan Burnside advised that we typically make a decision on the December raffle by mid-June.
  • Review of Bike Race Meeting 3/28 - Discussed printing (Rocky will get a quote from Pioneer Printing; Susan obtained quote below from SW Printing); bike route (may take coordination with CDOT if we use path that crosses Hwy 145; Sponsor Coordination for T-Shirts will be Susan; Shirts need to be submitted w/ all artwork by end of July; course decision needs to be made by 5/8; 5k course is pending, Scott and Chris getting the right players in place to coordinate the 5k Fun Run; Registration for the race will be open by 4/8. Discussion about ways to raise more funding, Susan posited that the best way is through direct sponsorship or donations. Discussion made about a big-ticket item to raffle, such as ATV or similar. Some discussion about Tom and Rocky approaching local ATV/Offroad racing manufacturer to see if donation could be made.

Meeting minutes: March 28th, 2017 Bike Race Meeting

 

In Attendance: Susan Lisak, Carl Buchta, Dan Jones, Ed Merritt, Scott Clow, Dr. Burnside, Mark Tucker, Tom Seymour, Shawna Valdez, Mike and Megan with Geer Park Trail Series

 

50 mile Endurance Route -

  • Discussed two possible routes that Shawn Gregory recommended.  We wanted more information before making a decision.

    • Option 1 (see map below) comes back on the river trail and crosses over Hwy 145 just before the finish line. This will require CDOT involvement because it crosses the highway - Scott Cooper and Rocky to check with CDOT as to  what will be required to make this happen.

 
    • Option 2 (see map below) was to use alleyways for outbound and inbound.  Alleyways could have cars and people, and may need to be cleared during race.  As long as correct signage is present, bikers should have no problem navigating.



 

Course Maps

  • Discussed printing of course maps on the back of the posters and felt it was not needed.  Most will be hung on walls, and for those wanting a map, it’s available on the website.  May add to tri-fold brochure or postcard.

Printing costs

  • Decided to print postcards in-house instead of sending to printers, Shawna to coordinate with Susan on design and amount.

  • Will need to finalize with Scott Cooper how many posters and what sizes to go with.  Once decided, Susan will send info to printers.

Geer Park Trail Series Runs

  • Mike and Megan with the Geer Park Trail Series spoke about setting up their runs. They use Ultrasignup.com for registering, which includes a timing app to keep track of racer’s times, event income, and racer demographics.  Their 4 mile race set for this Saturday (April 1st) may be delayed to the following week due to weather.  Follow them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GeerParkTrailSeries/

Sponsors

  • April is the time to start collecting sponsorships to help pay for T-shirts and other expenses. All rotarians need to assist with getting sponsors, please reach out to friends/family/colleagues/businesses you frequent and present with sponsorship request, form forthcoming next week.

  • Many larger corporations need more lead time, this is also the time to send off requests for 2018 donations and sponsors so they can include in next year’s budget.

Elevations Magazine

  • ~$500 to advertise in their fall issue.  Scott Clow to send new deadline details and circulation information so we can have more discussion on whether to participate.

  • Already submitted event details to their online calendar, free of charge

Website

  • still needs active registration link, and fun run added.  

Goodie Bags

  • We have 116 goodie bags.  They have last years sponsors and say 18th Annual on them, but we feel it’s okay to use.  We can try reaching out to vendors for additional bags if we need them.
