Year End Party! Board: Role Board Role Anne Traer Chair / Sponsors Sunny Schettler PR & Communications Jane Carbone Treasurer Mike Nislick Technology / Website Alison Ballard Races Dave McNeil Projects as Needed Katrina Schroeder Membership Eric Bielke Social David Altman Membership Marina Freytis Uniforms Malia Koppin Uniforms 2013 season kicked off with the first board meeting of the year… we welcomed new board members: Alison Ballard and Marina Freytis and Malia Koppin (Uniforms) We queued up some new member recruiting including a fun run from Ace… Our new Race Director, Alison Ballard, set an aggressive race schedule and for the first time in recent WWMS history, we had team discounts for every Focus Race! Perhaps she’d had a bit too much of the Dale’s Pale Ale when she picked 11 focus races! I’m not sure that Malia and Marina knew what they were in for when they volunteers to select a new uniform vendor and new team kit, but they did a great job! Race Directors Tim Richmond of Max Performance and race and Mark Walter of Sun Multisport gave us insight into what it takes to be a race direct and run races in New England. WWMS donated $735 to our charity Partner Cycle Kids and sent 7 riders on the Breakaway 2014 Tour Thank you, Sunny, for coordinating with CycleKids!
