- Oleata and Stanforth discussed the possibility of hosting all-comers track and field meets during 1990. The Chargers use the buildings at the track during July and August, so no rest rooms are available. UCSD has not set policies for use of the new track.
- The President noted that Dixon Farmer's departure to Minnesota had forced him to resign as Men's Track and Field Chairman.
- Oleata announced that he had volunteered to direct the 1990 Masters Western Sectional Track and Field Championships, with UCSD the first choice for the site. Due to limited resources and small attendance from within the Association, he recommended that we not also hold Association Championships.
