  • ... and "normal food" --> chips & dip, cookies, chex mix
  • tabouli/couscous??? potential problems because of: cost, disposal, serving. (Spam)

Decorations

  • Spam will coordinate with backup from Jenn & Emily & Pia & Esteban (declared the Manliest Man Ever)

 * ceilings in lounges primarily
  • Lounge marketplace
  • Tents
  • Stars for ceiling
  • Desert theming
  • Balance between reusability & disposability
  • Cocoa based drinks

Prep & Cleanup

Before:

  • James coordinating
  • Get technology out of lounges and into safe places
  • Ruth has volunteered her room for storage
  • Posters -- Andrew coordinating

After:

  • Esteban coordinating
  • The obvious

What goes where?

  • Benefits of Goodale lounge -- not carpeted, larger
  • Activities at ends of hallways. *But* can't block fire escape, so no tables in deep goodale. So mostly deep walcott.
  • Alcohol in Bemis bathroom
  • Bemis = desert
  • Food in Goodale lounge -- move Athena stations temporarily, food against wall?
  • Close off kitchen

Issues to figure out

  • What if we have too many people? ==> "bouncers", we need to recruit from elsewhere?
