Movie Voting: We will be voting on movies 10-13 at next weeks meeting.

Vice President: no report

Secretary: no report

Treasurer: made $1,600 on Ratatouille.


Equipment Supervisor: Issues with ticket window; wood/metal? Well give them a 2 week deadline to get it together. I need volunteers to help work on some stuff this weekend.

Web page: Date on website incorrect; will correct it. There are more updates on the site.

Publicity: (not present) Need volunteers to put up posters.


Concessions: Were low on oil. Let projectionist know if the oil runs out so we can start using the sticks.

Advertising: We got a couple of new slides for this week. Concessions should look into getting root beer because there is a great deal on A&W brand right now.

Advisors: (not present) no report

Committees: Constitution: 10:00 this Saturday. Let Mark know if you want to be added to the mailing list. Equipment: talked about possibilities of the outdoor film. Movies: Will discuss films for weeks 10-13.


Old Business: Tickets: Tickets design reviewed/critiqued. Not business card size; the size of two business cards. Suggestions: Put Michigan Tech at the bottom. One use only. Also stamp it. Number them. Transformers(cont.): It was brought to the boards attention that people might go through the raffle ticket table multiple times for their initial ticket. This would be solved by having some raffle tickets at the movie ticket table and some at the extra table so that the initial raffle tickets are given out with the movie ticket, and additional raffle tickets may be purchased at the other table. Popcorn Machine is sparkling clean. Daniell Heights: Received $67 check & was given to Kyle.


New Business: Blue Key: asking for donation for winter carnival. The theme is Frightful Creatures with Chilling Features. Plaque involved? Motion to donate $250. Passed. Sticom Club: Would like to show their newest episode before Superbad. Show on Sept 2 & 3 weekend. Its 22 minutes long. We could use the 2 hr bracket and use the 5:30, 8:30, & 11:30. They are more organized this time around, so everything should run more smoothly. Discussion occurred on whether this is considered advertisement, or supplemental entertainment/ whether this is a situation worthy of charging the Sitcom club. This will reflect on Film Board so it should be previewed. Motion to show episode 2 before every Superbad showing that weekend, given a screening occurs with no cost for this episode showing.


Meeting Adjourned: 7:02


Dutifully Submitted,
