1st Slot

  • When does it perform?
  • Pannill is proposing “The Father” by Strindberg

Emily will offer COBAB their choice of a weekend in the fall. Then Immer will open up the Upspace calendar.


  • Adam is a little frustrated but the plan is developing
  • He will call Todd (and/or Immer and Maya) mid-week to make a plan

Sign-Out Key Plan:
Dov will email us his proposal.

Dade's Ideas

  • We will work our way through a few each meeting so that we have time to discuss.
  • Have a $5 Metcalf req waiting on Monday morning for the just-passed show for audition posters. Unanimously in favor.
  • Can we buy pizza with reqs?
    • Dov - yes
    • Adam - the reason for reqs rather than cash reimbursements is the added level of fiscal responsibility
    • We are not talking about any reimbursement: we are only talking about reimbursements known about beforehand in situations where reqs are not possible
    • Pizza is not the issue.
    • Immer - TDs etc are often in a bind about how to pay for something.
    • Add wording to the show packet: “in extraordinary circumstances, ask your PM to talk to the treasurer/board” or “arrangements can be made”
    • Have the PM call the treasurer. If in doubt, the treasurer can email the board for approval.
  • Lobbying the SAO with other category 3 groups for change in how funding works
    • Immer suggested Dave speak to UFB (not on PW's behalf) himself
    • Jess - Dade has a point. it would be really helpful for students if the system were revamped. PW going with other groups would have more effect than Dade going on his own.
    • Dov - would be happy to put Dade in contact with UCS and have UCS talk to UFB.
    • Todd - let's buy some Home Depot gift cards (with a check) and have them lying around in case a show needs them. Home Depot doesn't deliver, but are often useful for last minute neccessary things. Garland and Adam will get on it: find out if such gift cards expire and buy $100 worth.


Adam -

  • Screens are being lent on April 9-10 to Grant Recital Hall. Adam will be in charge of looking after them.
  • Piano coming Monday (tomorrow) from Leeds at 10 am. Adam will be there to show them where to go. We're putting it in the Upspace.
  • Immer suggested we try to trade the baby grande for an upright. General disapproval. Immer was won over
  • Need to get it tuned. MF owes us a tuning. (Dov will get on that.)
  • Since we no longer get $400 from MF, what about asking them to tune the piano once a semester? (They can request additional funding from UFB)

Emily -
Met with Alex Provan - the King of Louis - and is enjoying being the COBAB liason.

Michael -
wants to apologize. Book of Days is taking over his life and he will not be at the next two Sunday meetings or the Commencement slot decision meeting.

Garland -

  • UCS Student Activities Committee meeting Monday (tomorrow) at 9 pm

She and Emily will attend.

  • Creative Arts Council = ???? what's their deal? Pannill said “not much.” We'll see.
  • Put Jobs on the agenda for next week. Think about them this week.

Dov -

  • will bring plaques next week.
  • He will miss next week's meeting for tech.

is in the process of creating a web-friendly show packet. Cool? Yes.

Gayle -

  • the Activities Fair is still a little ways away (April 20th) but she and Ross will be on that.
  • Archiving - soonish she will get to sorting and archiving. Anyone interested (Blair? Tess? Brian?) should let her know. Garland is interested in digitalizing our archives.

Jess -
Blair should email Jess the poster for commencement slot. Then Jess will email us and ask us to poster.

Maya -
What should we do with extra LAD 22's? Keep one in the office. Throw the rest away.
