The Run for the Reef is less than three weeks away.  Event coordinators have been working on their parts of the event.  It is time to get together and determine what has been done and what else needs to be done prior to that weekend.

We will meet this Thursday, September 26 at 6 pm at the Visitor Information Center/Navarre Chamber Conference room (enter through the Sound Side doors).  If you are interested in helping out with the Run come on out – we’ll find a place for you.

At the initial planning meeting for next year’s (2011) run, Saturday, October 15th 7:30 AM was set as the date and time of the run.  The venue will again be the Navarre Beach Pier.

The structure for the Race Planning Team was discussed and we now have a slate of coordination positions to be filled along with selection of the Overall Race Director.    We need a fee good volunteers to keep our event progressing and have it be all it can be.   If you have a desire for a better Navarre and a willingness to organize in the following areas, please email us at navbms@navarrebeachmarinesanctuary.com or call 850-677-1875.  No run experience is necessary – we’ve done this a couple of times now and have  a wealth of know how, templates, etc in most of these areas.  Here are the leadership needs:

Overall Race Director – Do you like being in charge,  following up on things, making sure everyone is staying on track, and ensuring things run smoothly?   This is the job for you.

Sponsorship Coordinator – Help us get out ahead of the curve by contacting and securing existing and new sponsors early in the year.

Registrations Coordinator – Set up our online registrations and manage the in person registrations, including tracking participant information, planning & coordinating package pickup, and race day registration.

Public Safety and Course Coordinator – Planing and  race day coordination  with  sheriff’s department, CERT, Fire and Rescue personnel and race day course setup.

Advertising & T-Shirts Coordinator – Are you a gad about town or a creative soul.  Keep our event in the public domain and put your creativity to work on next year’s race shirt.

Venue & Awards Coordinator – This one is for party planners.  Coordinate with the venue, secure the awards, and make sure the after party and awards ceremony go off as planned.

Results Coordinator – Arrange for race timing and work with the vendor to ensure timely and accurate results.

Today (August 26th), the Marine Sanctuary Committee delivered to Santa Rosa County, all the federal and state permit applications and supporting information required for the sound side and gulf side diving and snorkeling reefs they are working to establish at Navarre Beach.

Applications delivered to Santa Rosa County Administrator Hunter Walker

Permit Applications delivered to Santa Rosa County Administrator Hunter Walker

There are six application packages total with one set of three addressed to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and another set of three addressed to the Army Corps of Engineers. The permit application packages are outlined below.

1. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers East Sound Side Reef Application Package
2. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers West Sound Side Reef Application Package
3. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Gulf Reef Application Package
4. FL DEP East Sound Side Reef Application Package
5. FL DEP West Sound Side Reef Application Package
6. FL DEP Gulf Reef Application Package

The next step in the process is for the county to sign and deliver the applications to Florida State DEP and Army Corps of Engineers respectively. The Santa Rosa Board of County Commissioners passed Resolution 2009-13 on May 14, 2009 which confirmed the Board’s support of the marine sanctuary and their commitment to submit the professionally prepared permit applications delivered to them by the Marine Sanctuary Committee, and hold the resulting permits issued by the federal and state governments. The Sanctuary Committee anticipates the county will submit the applications within the next ten days to two weeks.

The Florida DEP permits are issued under the state’s General Permitting guidelines which are typically issued 30 to 60 days after submission by the county. The Army Corps of Engineers approval/issuance process is estimated to take between eight to fourteen months after submission by the county due to the coordination of the large number of other governmental agencies that typically review and comment on the permit applications.

The completion and submission of the applications is a major milestone for creation of the marine sanctuary. The Sanctuary Committee is pleased to be able to meet this milestone on budget and on time, and looks forward to shepherding the permits through the approval process, and deployment of the diving and snorkeling reefs into the permitted areas of the sound and gulf.
