And the Beach Camps go on....
Just moments before I was about to hand in my 'permission to speak' form at the town hall I received a phone call from the guy in charge of the permit process ~~ rates were lower (by more than half!) and we can stay where we are, applying weekly for the days we want to be on the beach.  All good, no one wants to cause trouble ~ the town will make a little more on Pulse, but not so much we can't step up to pay it this summer.
Thanks to all for ALL of your support through this process!  No rate increase coming for 2013 ~~ email going to my contact at the town now about keeping it that way for future years...
:)
Lemonade has been made out of the lemons ~
Drink up with us!

TOWN COUNCIL MEETING Regarding Beach Camp Permits Monday, 6/17 7:00 pm


Hello All!

As many of you are aware, the town of Middletown is revising how they handle groups who use public facilities ~ Second Beach being one of them.
In the past, they've required permits from Pulse and fees that were minimal, and this year the talk is to raise the fees to $25 per day.  This would be cost prohibitive for us to run camp and since we're there nearly every day from May through October in some form, would total around $4,000 for Pulse to use both beaches.
Thank you for your supportive comments in that we all pay taxes and this is unfair ~~ I agree with you, but also see the town's point that I run a business there.  So - some of my points of contention that I plan to discuss in the meeting ~~
~ If I run my business in Newport and don't actually conduct business at the beach, is this relevant?
~ If I still have to pay, what is covered by a 'DAY'?  If 12 hours = 1 day, then I could pick and choose which camps are BEACH and pay $25 for the full 6 week session for just those camps.  Other camps might move around to help the budget.
I'd much rather spend that $4,000 on more equipment and education for all of us trainers at Pulse ~ than a town fee for pre-beach hour fitness.
You know me - I prefer to go into this without the idea of an argument, hopeful that we'll come up with a deal that works for us all.  I'll be going at 6pm to fill out my request to speak and present my counter proposal.  If anyone feels they'd like to contribute a 5 minute or less comment that starts out being constructive please let me know by Sunday evening.  (Jacki@pulsenewport.com)
If you have time and want to come support Pulse on Monday at 7pm wear your Pulse tee and let's go keep our permission granted for Beach Camps!

Thank you all for your time and well wishes ~~
There are enough of us, we can make this work.

 FROM ONE OF OUR JUNKIES TO ANOTHER...  
HELPING PEOPLE WE LOVE IN OUR COMMUNITY...



There is a great 5K at Norman Bird Sanctuary this Saturday in honor of Dave Leys ($ goes to NBS but he is the honoree and when you sign up there is an option to give to ALS)
Go online for more info or to register!

Please consider partnering with us for our 7th Annual 5K Run, Walk, & Kid’s Run, at the Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown, RI. This race has become a Father’s Day weekend tradition for many, and has quickly become a favorite among area runners, as well as runners from as far as California, Utah, Florida, and Tennessee. USTAF sanctioned, the route takes participants past some of the most beautiful scenery in R I - down country roads, winding along the beaches, and past the picturesque Norman Bird Sanctuary property. Children as young as two enjoy participating in their own shortened race, sponsored by Frosty Freez.

Chris Fleming joins us from New York City, where he studied 30/60/90 under the owner/creator of this the high-intensity interval training class, Kirsti Molinaro. Having taken Kristi’s high-intensity class for years as a student and seeing its transformative effect on health, athleticism and body composition, he knew he wanted to share the class with others and became certified by Kristi to teach this format.
Chris loves crowds that bring energy. Happy? Come and yell! Frustrated? Come and yell! Chris thinks every class should be harder than the last and pushes his students to continually improve. Bring everything you’ve got: no regrets.
