Concessions: We’re set and trying to run down our stock for the end of the year. Another box of oil was purchased.

Advisors: No report.
Old Business: The Air Force ROTC was in contact. He has allocated money and would like to sponsor a movie next September. Matt Heyse was elected Advertising chair. The issue of switching distributors was brought up. Criterion has offered a price of ~$600/movie (not including shipping). The issue of going solely through Criterion is the selection of movies. A selection can be seen at http://www.criterionpic.com/. A few questions posed to ask Criterion were: Will the films be readily available?; What about the statistics card that must be filled out with each film?; How are posters sent?. Another question is: Will Swank lower their price with a limited contract?
New Business: Posters were distributed.
