We had a board meeting in December.
We are happy to announce that Alexa Kreuger and Don Elfstrom have decided to stay on the board and were re-elected unanimously. We would like to thank Alexa and Don for their time and dedication to this great cause.
We decided to modify the logo. The text will remain mostly the same, dropping the .org, but same arrangement and font. Essentially just the graphic will be changed.
We will be spending 2010 working on raising awareness of the fund. A very large number of racers and their families have no idea we exist, let alone how we could help. We cannot raise money without people knowing who we are and what we do. We are looking for volunteers in different areas of the country to represent The Red Flag Fund. We are preparing a 1/3 sheet flyer. A representative would pass out the flyers on race weekends and speak at the riders meeting. So far we have volunteers in the Midwest (CCS), an AMA team, and Arizona (CCS/SW).
We also discussed future funding raising options. We hold an annual auction at Blackhawk Farms (tentatively Saturday August 21,2010). We have discussed having another auction at the WERA Cycle Jam at VIR. The earliest this would happen would be 2011. For this to happen, we would need some volunteers from the area to help us to coordinate the event.
