Committee Reports


There is more Seldon this week! We are finishing off Tin Man, Parts 2 and 3.

Also, we put together a schedule of things to show for the first half of term, which will be released shortly. Next week we're showing The Eleventh Hour, the first episode of the Eleventh Doctor, and the BBC production of The Colour of Magic.


There's a new TIF! Aww, Kendra's not so close to falling off the top.


With two prentices working on it, we're actually Niagracomming some magazines!


Next week, right before the meeting, we have the Activities Midway! People should come! And should come to the meeting! And the Seldon showing! There might be frosh!


Old Business

There was an earthquake. The books didn't notice. Some of our members did; others didn't.



New Business

There's going to be a hurricane. We will attempt to keep the books dry.

Motion to suggest we sacrifice bananas to Nimbus to protect the books fails for lack of a second.

Motion to suggest that Lemur bring a small watermelon to the Seldon showing so we can sacrifce it to Nimbus.

One week until Doom! The Onseck has candidacy orals in a week.

Motion to wish Lemur good luck with its exams PASSES 16-0-2 plus Spehn.


Future Business

In the future there will be many meals. Of all descriptions. I mean all.

Miller motion fails due to lack of a second. Tragically.

Motion to bring bananas to some future Seldon showing PASSES 8-2-2 plus Spehn.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 68.4 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Lemur Rowlands, Onseck
