Hi all I'm going to be taking over as secretary for a while so
I'll be the one posting minutes. I hope everyone is OK with that.
The topic for the 19th was chaos/ deciding new topics. Not very many
people showed up so we spent a lot of the time meeting the new babies
and oggling their cuteness.
For mail we got 3 interesting things. One is a reminder that side street
will be next Wed. from 11-2. The other was a really good deal on
t-shirts and screen printing. Lindsey has a copy of that if anyone wants
to find out more. There is also a flyer on a hate speech lecture type
thing that will be happening on campus on the 27th at 3pm. I have the
flyer for that if anyone wants to take a look.
The other things we talked about were:
-Letting everyone have involvement in group discisions. Right now the
steering committee does all of that and several people have asked to
either be able to sit in on steering or have the entire group addressed.
-We also discussed some of the group responsibilities and how well our
constitution is being followed. Most of the people in attendance feel
that we should be doing more. Pretty much everyone agreed that all the
members need to see the constitution.
-We discussed the proboards vs. Yahoo thing again and decided that
things should get posted on both (mainly minutes).
-We also talked about some of the things that haven't been done
(buttons, posters, T-shirts). Since the group was so small though we
couldn't really decide anything because we will need more people not
only to make the decisions but to help carry them out.
The topic for next week is everyday paganism/ dealing with stereotyping.
Some of the other ideas we discussed are: Separating fantasy from
reality, Mythical elements (fairies, dragons, etc.), Ghosts, Science Vs.
Magic, Different religious paths, Astrology/ astronomy, and possibly
another elements discussion.
Sorry that was so long but we went over a ton of stuff. Hope to see you
all next week and everyone should go to the "bonfire" thing on Friday
