Ray Wageman

Here is OMRR Hall of Fame member Ray Wageman’s obituary from today’s paper. I would love someone that knew him well to write up an article for the Running Briefs. We’ve lost another great one.

Dues Increase

Effective June 1, 2014, dues for membership in the Ozark Mountain Ridge. Runners will be changed to the following:

Dues for membership in the Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners will be $20 per year for the first member of a household. Each additional member of the household will be $5 per year with a maximum of $40 per household. A household will be defined as individuals living at the same physical address. 

If you are paid past June first this won’t affect you until your due date. For instance, if you are paid through September, that’s when the new rate will affect you. If you have two household members currently paying separately, the new due date will be effective off the first person.

This is necessary as many of our costs are going up such as taxes, insurance, the costs of our events such as the picnic, races and banquet. We are also looking to continue improving our two signature events. That was also the biggest factor in the newsletter print edition going from monthly to quarterly.

Beer Mile

I don’t think we are going to be able to use the beer mile in ROTY. I’m hearing it was about 3/4 of a mile
