V. Action Items
a. Approve 2012-2013 Budget: Motion for a 3% decrease in budget and if any extra funds are available because enrollment is up, then they need to re-allocate the money back to the subcommittees at the same percentage the entire budget is allocated originally. (18/24)-Passes.
VI. Discussion Item
a. Rock Climbing Club: No one is here to represent this bill. We will look into if they will still are going.

i. We can possibly do this. We will look into it!
c. Amigo’s Pachanga: This will happen next Friday the 20th at 5:30 the band will begin at 6pm.
i. The reason we want to charge for food is to reimburse the costs of the food. We could potentially have a student cost (a little lower).
ii. We have other avenues if we do not get full allocation
d. Orientation T-Shirt’s:
i. Would there be the ability to advertise on the T’s?
ii. We do not have an exact design yet but it will be a Western State College of Colorado Logo.
iii. Where have initiatives like this been funded in the past?
1. It depends on who was making the T’s. Res Life is currently in a deficit and other entities are taking budget cuts.
iv. How many students came in last year? About 500 students come in and orientations leaders want them and first year experience leaders may want on.
v. Do you expect to ask for this money again next year?
1. Yes, I believe SGA would be a part of it again.
2. Could you sell ad space? Maybe.
vi. We may put it in the packet for parents if people want to come early, with a vacation, but we want freshman to come at the beginning of orientation. Returning students we may offer housing early so they can be there for the Pro Cycling challenge. We want to align people on Escalante Drive.
e. Baseball Bill: Are your coach’s students or faculty? They work in facilities, and have given most of their stipend back.
i. Date auction may be good for fundraising.
ii. What are your dues?
1. About $500 and that doesn’t include a lot.
iii. There’s a field day you could possibly work at.
iv. Can club funds help other club funds? There are no restrictions, if you can make a donation that would be fine.
v. BSA on Monday’s at 7pm in the multicultural center if you would like to volunteer, we need to spend the rest of our budget, and nee dot make some food.
vi. We are willing to work for money. We have more home games and are playing at the High School 330 on Saturday and 12 and 2 on Sunday.
