-WashU tradition for 17 years

-Ironman is the company that provides sound, lighting etc, worked with them for 10  years

-Provide about 50% discount

– Presenter is not sure whether it is absolutely necessary to have the higher price

– If they didn’t get this appeal, they don’t have any option since all their fundraising goes to charity and miscellaneous items

– Keaton: How much did you pay ironman last year? Ans: $7,452.40

– Luke: has there been a contract signed yet? Ans: not signed yet but unspoken agreement

– Bill: Itemization has not been provided so wants to see what everyone else has to say

– Harvey: Worked with them for SPB, not easy to understand their itemized list, likes the discount

-Keaton: Itemization not a problem, wondering if the value of the setup will be significantly be better than what they did last year

-Bradford: Cant push this to fundraising, group has good record

– Vikram: Motion to fund the full amount, it’s a good deal, this is to ensure the event will run more smoothly

– All in favor of motion

V. Open Forum

Comments: By:
Asked really good questions, Lemoine like Luke’s qs about the contract Lemoine
Wanted more info about 1900, but trusts what they’re doing Keaton
No computers worked out because he researched before  


Computers are better when more groups, more details Keaton
Do research before treasury make notes, people get distracted by internet so looks bad, wants to try new computer thing for a while and see how it goes. Hunter
