The Chairman presented a letter from Ollan Cassell. In summary it stated that TAC has rejected the suggestion that it take over the operation of SDIAC, and that the procedure in TAC By-Laws for such a petition has not been followed.
A long discussion on methods of increasing SDIAC membership produced no actions or motions.
The Board defeated Oleata's motion that SDIAC grant a $100 stipend for training expenses to any member competing in the Junior Men's and Women's Track and Field National Championships, with the following conditions:
The athlete must have primary registration in SDIAC.
The athlete must have established the qualifying mark for, and competed in the Championships.
The athlete must apply to SDIAC for the training stipend.
The Board approved Stock's similar motion, that the Board of Directors advise the Track and Field Chairman to grant $100 training stipends to juniors meeting the conditions of item V, with the following additional condition:
The athlete must have been TAC-registered at the time the qualifying mark was attained.
The Board approved Bernard's motion that approximately $2200 of Long-Distance Running funds be spent in the purchase of a video recorder.
