---- Br. Gilland: Again with the naggy and the breaking. Good at being social and getting
people to be social. Would carry this on into Rush Chair.
---- Br. Bagwell: Would be able to close the deal. As a former rush chair, I think he has the
vision down. Has to be good at organizing and a lot of other skills. Has them all
---- Br. Faulkner: Socially active and in touch with what the Chapter likes to do. Would plan
a fun schedule that would get a lot of Actives out (and Alumni).
---- Br. Eyster: Has ideas about where I see Rush going such as which events are useful and new
directions to go with.
--- for Pl. Suba
---- Br. Rowe: Good at getting people to do things. Don't underestimate the power of the bling.

definitely do it.
---- Br. Lauth: Would do an excellent job, but maybe not the right time.
---- Pl. Suba: I am a quick learner. Looking for mentors. Strong believer in "Rush goes on". Can
get information out and can get things going. Spread the Chapter out a bit.
--- for Br. Lamoureux
---- Br. Gibbons: Bob said that David did an excellent job with Rush II. A guy from work knew
about Laser Tag (which is the event Br. Lamoureux headed up). Is also organized.
---- Br. Gilland: He is very constant and aware of whats going on around him. Spends a lot more
time watching then throwing into the middle of situations. Can communicate that very well.
---- Br. Lamoureux: Decided to go towards this when I dropped VP. Over last week and a half a
lot of people asked me why I wasn't running for Rush Chair. I felt I could do VP and Rush
Chair, but Chapter has VP covered. I admit I am not the best rusher, but I enjoy organizing
events. I have fun pulling the strings and getting things done behind the curtain. I may not
be as loud as Br. Eyster, but I think I can be just as persuasive in my own way. Think its the
position for me this next year.
-- Split vote - Lamoureux vs. Eyster now
-- Elected: Br. Lamoureux

- Prank phone call to RMR to tell him he won Rush Chair. Left voicemail.

---- Br. Gibbons: I live with Matt and he is very organized and into cleanliness. Has strong
opinions and sociable enough to run these meetings. Full capable of excelling at all the new
---- Br. Bagwell: House Manager also has to mess with Quickbooks.
---- Br. Faulkner: Can you think of any word to better describe Br. Jones than fastidious? Who else could you want for House Manager?
---- Br. Gilland: Most convincing poster.
---- Br. Jones: May have to move in Fall, but will do everything in power to prevent this.
--- for Br. Creasey
---- Br. Powers: Organized, cares a lot about the house, and think its a chance for him to get
better acquinted with the Chapter.
---- Br. Bagwell: Has just as good of an attention to detail as Br. Jones. Had a good poster
campaign too. Committed to the Chapter..
---- Br. Cole: He is very dependable. He has been to the class we have together twice as much
as I have. Very organized. Showers daily.

-- Nominations: Br. Kincheloe, Br. Lauth
-- Discussions...
--- for Br. Kincheloe
---- Br. Nikolaev: Lawerence will provide us more fun. More steaks and fun things.
---- Br. Kincheloe: Campaign of change. Believes the stewardship is just as important as any
other position. Makes people feel welcome around here. Thanksgiving dinner has been a way of
doing this. Make these more formal and more of an event. Also want to go with Sysco and a
long range schedule. Would like peoples' schedules ahead of time. Sucks for people to try to
scramble to figure out whats going on. Both candidates will do a remarkable job.

articles for both McCarroll and Huffmaster. Will have fun with it but take it seriously. Will
have 3 out by Jan 08.
---- Br. Gibbons: what he said
---- Br. Powers: His energy and creativity have potential to make this fun rather than a chore
as it has been
---- Br. Senkowski: We will definitely get National Recognition
--- for Br. Eyster

habits and way he does things overall

Scholarship Committee to buffer my communication with the Chapter. Even if not elected,
working on ways to improve GPA around the Chapter. I am passionate about it and would like
title to go along with the work I am going to do.
--- for Br. Jones
---- Br. Powers: Good example to the Chapter. This position needs a leader. Has had lots of
manager, but needs new ideas. He brings this to the table.
---- Br. Jones: I am a greater scholar than [TRG] will ever be. No matter who you vote for, you
will get two for one. He has the charisma of a wolverine with hemorrhoids or something.
