Committee Lunch HT3

1. The Committee passed £50 to pay the musicians who played at Nepostists last term (since the organ wasn't available on account of it being broken).

2. Rachael and Daisy want to put a tampon mountain in Jowett and they're trying to find a reasonable place to put it (suggestions are welcome!), and the possibility of installing a condom machine in Jowett at some point in the future is going to be investigated.

3. James told the Committee that Saturday of 5th week isn't going to work for either Balliol or New College, so we're going to do something in Trinity instead.

Committee Lunch HT1

1. We passed up to £50 to be spent buying rainbow laces for the rugby team.

2. Abi told the Committee that everything was on track and that you're likely to be getting around two free drinks at the garden party (exciting).

3. The Committee will be having a lunch with the Dean Tuesday 3rd week (and hence we won't be meeting on the Wednesday that week).

4. Daisy wants everyone to write blog posts about life at Balliol aimed at prospective students or offer-holding students and you should all totally do that!
