Committee Reports


Work is happening! John Chu will visit us in fall (details to be determined) and Max Gladstone and Gwenda Bond emailed about possible visits over the summer. Exciting!


Picnic is happening, 10am, including the committee members No, Tristan is not allowed to set a fire. No burning down the forest, that would be bad. Maybe a Zippo lighter or a match.


TZ is happening! Deadline is July 15! Emails will be sent to writing professors and classes. People should write things! Picniccomm should write a report


Old Business

We got a ton of new Keyholders! YAY. Normal shenanigans.

CPW happened and we gave lots of books to pre-frosh. It was fun!


Current Business



Tristan wins with 7.98 votes!


Moist von Lipwig wins with 6 votes, and Carissa with 3.55 votes will act as his assistant!

Motion for brief moment of silence in honor of Sir Terry Pratchett goes uncontested and is summarily observed.


Harriet is elected! Which Harriet is unclear. Harriet the Keyholder's chosen Vice is Sloth (for not being here). Harriet Tubman's is Wrath. Harriet the Spy's is Pride.

So we will be particularly full of Vice this year


In a surprise upset, write-in nominee Rachel Skye wins.

Onseck motions that if the keyholders do not settle down she reserves the right to shove bananas down her throat Motion passes Some Number Greater Than The Other Two to 7 to 2 plus Spehn.

BING! Meeting adjourned 64.76 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Lee Fuchs, Pseudo-Onseck
