The QRAC will close at 5pm on Friday, May 25. 

Second, all memberships expire on June 30th.  Memberships for the 
2007-2008 fiscal year will go on sale on June 18th.  Do NOT attempt to 
buy membership before June 18th.  Until this date, the only membership 
available for purchase on the website will be for 2006-2007:  do not 
re-purchase this membership.  Please wait until June 18th.  I will send 
another email reminding you when it goes on sale, but wanted to let you 
know when it will be. 

Finally, we are excited about two new programs we are offering this 

The first is a pedometer step challenge called Pedomination.  Teams will 
compete to accrue the most steps each week, tracked with pedometers.  We 
are still nailing down the details, but we are designing the competition 
to include all steps, regardless of where they are taken to allow 
members to be active anywhere.   Check the website for more details in 
the next few days. 

The second is an 8-week weight loss program called the Summer Slim 
Down.  Specially designed to be welcoming to new exercisers, this 
program is a multifaceted, individualized, safe, and healthy approach to 
weight loss through exercise.  The program will include two specialized 
classes each week, several sessions with a personal trainer, measurement 
tracking and goal setting, and continual email support.  Members new to 
working out will be introduced to a wide range of exercise types and 
become familiar with various pieces of equipment.  Again, check the 
website for more details in the next few days. 

As always, feel free to contact me with concerns or comments! 

Have a great holiday,
