for Their Court.

St. Ceclia at the Tower
Still looking into dates for next year.
More to come!

Novice A&S Faire
Concerns were raised about the original proposed budget
and so Margarete has looked into alternative sites.
St. Paul (where we hold Terp) is a possibility, and Aelfric is
looking into availability and costs.

UofM Student Population
We have 12 UofM student signers, so we are locked in for another year!

(wo)man the table!

Phonebook - N/A

Populace Badge
More discussion was had on creating a Cafe Press store
to create products with the populace badge on them.
Midair proposed that we try to make a profit of $1.00 on each item.

Meeting Site:
Amyon has proposed using the West Side Methodist Church for a future
It is on Pauline Street in Ann Arbor.
We will be at Nicolas on the 26th
And then will we be at Classic Cup Cafe on October 10th.

Bank Change:
Everything is almost switch over to the new bank.

Wassail (December 17th)
Ilse and Uillec made a proposal for Wassail on Dec. 17th.
They have looking into a variety of sites, but the Chelsea
Community Center seems to be a good choice.
It would cost $375, can hold 150, and is a wet site.

New Business:

Terpsichore 2012
Aelfric proposes a budget of $910 for our upcoming Terpsichore
to be held at St. Pauls.
Some questions were raised about the comp-ing of tickets to
musicians and instructors.

The Chatelaines would like to hold some classes for newcomers.
Originally the proposal was for a full-day track of classes, but
the group feels that it might be better to split this time up into
several days.
The Opera Room is available in the Michigan Union during the same
time as fight practice and would be a good space for these workshops.
I would like the first scheduled workshop to be on October 2nd, to make
sure we can retain some of our interested newcomers.

Gold Key
It has been proposed that items which will be leaving Gold Key
(either because of style, fabric, condition or redundancy) be put
out at a "yard sale" for people to purchase.  This might be something
that could happen at Wassail.
More to come!

My apologies for any mistakes or needed corrections!
