Winter/Spring DCSU events

Theatre outing

Lisa’s suggestion via Cameron: Arrigatto Tokyo at Buddies – March 16 –        April 15 something

Grace suggests: Let’s go for Isabel’s first bc might be able to pay for whole thing – Lisa’s idea as       backup. We all agree.



More to come soon. Will be on a day where lots of classes.

Cassandra is organizing.

Lauren suggests – V-effect for Valentine’s.


Pub night

Kelsy’s idea – like the salons from a couple of years ago – food, drink, etc.

– there will be a call for performances – first at DC

– questions about including the UC too, and maybe after that open it up         even wider

– Matt question – theme? New and original work. Maybe tie in with spring      re-birth.


End of year party

Members at large are organizing – send ideas their way

Requesting a choir…


Treasurer’s Report

Spent so far: $359.80 – less than last year (not including cheques given out today and bar cost for    the Holiday party). Orientation was more expensive last year. But we’ve spent more on each of   the other events so far.

Still to spend the FOOT money and the remaining spring events. Also, Saddlemeyer Parker and        capital gift – X2, i.e. last year’s and this year’s. Yoga mats being bought shortly – less than $500.

Budget for end-of-year party is $150.

Myrto: How much in account? Monty says he will tell us once cheques are cashed.


GSU Report

Not much happens. A lot of discussion about mandates. Not very pertinent for us. But we applied   for 2 grants – both have been received.       $500 for FOOT.  And the small grant for our small event       – the research tech chat. The money will go to food and a small honorarium.

Elected a member at large for GSU – committed to improving the situation of international    students. Want 2 volunteers to consult with: for the anticalendar and the international students.            Not big commitments.

Cam will do the anticalendar

International students at DC: Justin, Catie, Shelley? Isabel will email them and any others. If no-      go, one of exec will have to do.

Matt asks about political activism of the GSU – Isabel says anyone can come, but can’t vote.


Capital Gift

We’re getting yoga mats for last year’s gift – very soon.

This year’s capital gift, still under discussion. We’re open to suggestions.

Monty suggests: the Ent-tec wireless dmx interface: This is a magical thing.

Any other suggestions: please email us. Ask around. Note: we don’t get things that the DC should     be providing.


FOOT Applications for next year

We haven’t gotten any yet. We’ll put out soon after the current FOOT. Spread word…



Other business

We’re asking Stephen for study-space and laptop for booth.

Monty: Or just lobby for it wi-fi in studio?

Matt: we need mannequins or dummies and head of props for Death Clowns. Spread the word.        Monty asks if we have budget for security deposit.


Grace moves to adjourn – Johanna seconds. All in favour.
