President's Report
- As a reminder, the 22nd of September is dinner with Dr. Grady. This will be at 5pm on the Saturday two weeks from yesterday. We had a count for 16 people to show up at dinner that day.
- Also on September 22nd, Delta Gamma will be holding Anchor Splash. It'll be from 12pm to 4pm in the afternoon. Hopefully it'll be less cold. It's $100 for a team, and we'd need 8 people. It'll be fun; you can embarrass yourself in front of sorority girls. I don't think we have enough interest to do it.
- The first weekend in November (the 3rd and 4th), I'm organizing a camping trip. Anyone is welcome to come. I don't know where we're going, but I'll get more information to you later. This will be three weeks after retreat.
- There will be a session called "Can you relate?" It's being held by two people who were asked by the governer to reduce the divorce rate in Oklahoma. If you'd like to attend a relationship seminar, I have fliers.
- I have a flier about services from Career Services. If you're interested, check this out. Somebody, please put up the career fair dates on the calendar. The engineering career fair is on the 20th. (Anybody can go at any time this year.)
- Do we want to participate in homecoming? Br. Gilland expressed interest. He also says the Zeta Beta Tau's would work with us on this.
- The Kappa Kappa Gamma "Kappa Classic" is also coming up on the 22nd. It's $400 to enter this golf tournament. Anybody interested? Look at this flier.
- The executive director, Paul Lawson, is coming on October 9th and 10th. He'll be flying in on Tuesday morning. RZC will be picking him up at the airport; if you can recognize him, please go along. He'll be doing Tuesday night dinner with us, and another activity on Wednesday night (the 10th).

Vice-President's Report
- Retreat is coming up on October 13th (that weekend). It'll probably be an outdoor type thing. If anyone objects to that, contact me.

- I will want a rush meeting on Tuesday.

- For those who want to go for Nic's wedding, I'll have some space in the car. I may or may not come right back up.

- JMG, haven't you graduated yet?
- I will be going down to Nic's wedding with the family next week. I expect to see you all there.

- I'd be happy to tell lots of stories from ancient days.

Br. Powell
- I should graduate if I pass my wonderful Latin classes, which I have a test in on Monday.
- I renewed my habit of posting blue sheets on the Triangle board. There are a couple of interesting musical events going on.

- I'm president of the Norman UNIX Liberation League. I'm holding my last meeting on Tuesday. From 3pm to 5pm, I'll be at the table in the Union. MAB: You are going to put out a banner that says "Linux saves, right?" JDP: No, but I do have this sign -- "Linux is the way."
- I have a database management class with a prof who was in Germany last week, but she decided to hold class anyway by sending us a tape. It wasn't compatible with VHS, so they put it on the CS website. And 15 minutes before it ends, the sound goes out.

Br. Garner
- The CoE said I could graduate this December. (to much applause) As long as I pass two of my classes this year. They're easy.

- Got to meet Br. Abernethy's parents, which was interesting.
- For next weekend, I don't know when the Cake concert is. I'll call sometime this week, and will let you know via email.

Br. Lewis
- I had a long week.
- This week will be about as long.
- I think Shona has about a week left until we have another little evil one running around.

Br. Siard
- It's been an unpleasant weekend. I'll be glad to go back to school and have fun again.
- If you're interested in season tickets for the University theater, I'm going tomorrow morning. Meet at the union around 9:30am with people who want tickets, and we'll go over.
- I've determined that Capstone really means a 0-thousand level class, one that you should have taken before your freshman year.

Br. Williams
- I had a good week.
- Classes have stabilized to the point where I can tolerate them.

- Friday I went shopping with TDM and others. I played dress up with them.
- Friday evening, we went to the rec room. Had a really good time, and had an interesting evening. Someone called me bright and early in the morning the next day. Well, it was noonish at least.
- Saturday I went to a friend's wedding. They did a hand binding ceremony, which was gorgeous. JMG was an usher.
- Later Saturday, Andy and I went to my house and watched football from 7pm to midnight.
