Ken Olsen

It is with great sadness that we announce that one of our club members, Ken Olsen, passed away on Sunday, July 18, 2010. Ken was a charter member of the St. George Exchange Club and he served as president of the club and president of the District.

In the last few years he has spent a great deal of time on the road and has not been able to attend our meetings very often, but it was always enjoyable when he did.

He leaves behind a great legacy and we should all be grateful for the efforts he put in to help establish this club.

A link to his obituary is below. The club has arranged to send flowers.

Ken joined the Exchange Club on 5/1/1974.

Ford Iron Man St George 2010

Today's speaker was Kevin Lewis, Sprots & Events Director with the St George Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. Kevin gave us a recap on the St George Iron Man, sharing a couple of videos and pictures and much feedback from the participants.

2,500 athletes signed up (the race was capped at 2,500). Only 2,150 athletes registered the day before, only 1,916 started the race, and only 1,634 finished. Kevin explained that the St George Iron Man is being claimed as the hardest course in North America. The people at Iron Man were impressed with the way the City of St George came together to pull this off. We had 4,300 volunteers, over 9,000 visitors came and spent an estimated $7.85 million in Washington County.

The male winner was Michael Weiss, finishing in 8 hrs 40 min.
The female winner was Heather Wurtele, finishing in 9 hrs 35 min.

The Kids Fun Run had an estimated 700 participants, this is the second largest Fun Run that the Iron Man circuit has ever had.

Iron Man has signed a 5 year contract with St George and will always be on the 1st Saturday of May.
