Seldon: Movie will be shown next week.
War Council: There is never enough space.
Chancellor: Recommendations for *chamber rites should be emailed to me. Recommendations given:
The *chamber needs to remind people to War Council. What the ASA does and why we care (allocates space)
Skinner: Labels should be reprinted
Winter project: Warehouse purge, Dexhampster can be run through phone internet.
In the past we have failed to have unstrangely productive meetings. In the past
most of boxed SFWA was Hassled. In the past, inventory happened. In the past,
during committee reports, we should look in to bugging Carl to reprint the DEX,
it should happen before the frosh show up. In the past, there was an ASA moratorium.
In the past, people made usual motions.
In present, the Skinner is confused by usual motions.
Unusual Motion: usual absence of a second. Unusual second.
Unusual vote, unusual pass: 6-4-0 plus Spehn
In the near future, 5-10 books should be shelved in a meeting. In the future,
more people should come to meetings. In the future, recruitment will happen.
Skinner decrees someone must motion.
Motion for a banana-flavored apocalypse passes 7-3-3 plus Spehn
Meeting adjourned, 66.4 Ksec SST.
James Hobin, Onseck
