Try to get there on the 5th so you don't get leftover wine and cheese. Ozz could use assistance in holding the universe together during the show.

3. Money begging? Christine gave an eloquent presentation but we were sorry to find (err... remember) that WSAC does not fund equipment! (See previous meeting minutes for info on our WIDR and Wireless LAN projects.)

Further ideas for scamming (err... requesting) money?

Computer raffle, coursepack funding by WSAC, use cheap/borrowed/donated hardware for WIDR project (temporary?), alternative sources of money--president Floyd, lots of work project: series of presentations about computers from different depts such as poly sci philosophy etc
