1. We discussed possible suggestions for what to do with a compulsory levy for sponsoring a child which has became moot since the child has since graduated; there's currently money collected from previous terms after the child graduated, and the school asked for a donation towards classroom equipment, however it is felt that this is against the spirit of how Balliol donates charitably and the levy, so this will probably be coming to a GM at some point.
1. Matt Fuller was co-opted onto Entz.
2. Up to £50 was passed for the Womens' Officers to spend on the Welfare tea to celebrate Emily Freeman's painting going up in Hall (!!!!) with the expectation that around £35 of it would be used.
3. Up to £15 was passed to reimburse Xav buying us table tennis balls which please for the love of life can you just not lose
4. Molly reminded us that there's a JCR boycott of Nestle and this should be considered in JCR teas and whatnot.
1. We're going to show Eurovision in the JCR; they'll be face painting and food and drinks.
2. Richard suggested buying drug purity testing kits for the JCR to use as a harm-reduction scheme; it was agreed this would be discussed further with Bruce and with James & Meg.
3. We're gonna start stocking spare food from JCR teas in a box behind Pantry to reduce waste because we're a responsible JCR.
4. The Committee formally noted the good job done by the Garden Party; we're gonna get them a card and passed up to five quid for this.
Here is the running order for tomorrow, try to turn up five minutes early and be prompt. You should only have changed from the last email if I so arranged with the captain/head of your team/society, so presumably they'll have told you; if not, I'm not really bothered too much. Photos will be TOMORROW. As in the 5th of May. As in the day of local elections. As in Thursday of 2nd week. Be there.
1. Abi asked the Committee for volunteers to do staircase checks on the day of the Garden Party

1. We signed a birthday card for Richard (the JCR cleaner).

2. We passed £12 to renew our website domain.
3. The Committee passed up to £50 for refreshments and whatnot at the rescheduled Balliol TED talk events which you should all go to and it'll be great (also keep your eyes peeled for Balliol Soapbox next term???)
4. The aforementioned speaker is a third year undergrad from Hilda's who wrote a book called Notes on Being Teenage, she'll be talking on Tuesday.
1. We passed £25 to get a parting gift for Charlotte since she's been an absolute star for Pantry and the JCR.
2. We discussed how making and selling boptails could be more efficiently done - in particular regarding buying alcohol with the bar - since it's currently quite a pain setting up and cleaning pantry; we agreed to revisit this in the future when we had more specific suggestions for addressing this.
UPDATE: it should be fixed!!!
