Attendance: Matt Yates, Phil Miller, Melissa Abrams, Andrea Tuttle, Kendal Ogles, Colleen Beck, and assorted New College students including but not limited to Vanessa, Sarah, Dan, and Angela (apologies for lack of last names)
Around 7:30, the present members started working on Certamen questions for the December tournament. We split into groups, and divided up the questions. For a solid hour and a half, we got quality Certamen questions written.
The official meeting started shortly after nine o'clock
~Needed before SCL Certamen tournament, but not before the December tourney (because it isn't really ours)
~ Any ideas or good designs should be talked about at future meetings or via listserv
~December 6th, Maclay School, starts at 12, SCL be there at 11
~meeting afterwards (Tallahassee, location TBA), good time to also hold Saturnalia event
NO DECEMBER 13th MEETING, IT HAS BEEN MOVED TO DECEMBER 6TH
SCL Certamen Tournament
~Questions due by middle of November to Phil
~likely going to be the first weekend in March (this places it directly between Regionals and State)
2nd fall planning meeting
~Kendal and Raju will be attending next weekend
~State will be held at the Grosvenor Hotel, all Olympika is possible

~Ideas: Classical Celebrity death match, Geico parody, "I failed my Republic test, but good news, I just saved money on my car insurance"
~Still spaces available, money due NOW!!
~If you are driving to Reunion, let Franco know, so he can figure out cars/picking poeple up from the airport
Other issues were discussed and resolved. There will be a more definite line between meetings and events.
After the meeting, we went to the beach, with the purest clearest water I had ever seen (it felt like we were in a pool, I was so surprised to learn that the water was salty!), went back to New College, we watched Dogma, and some went to sleep, others played Trivial Pursuit.
Good meeting. Good event. Good.
Thanks to Colleen for hosting, and for letting people sleep there
Thanks to Vanessa for letting people sleep at her dorm.
