Darwin Day Planning Meeting

January 16, 2012 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This year’s Darwin Day event is Sunday, February 12, at the 2100 Building. The event includes food (and cake, of course), games, trivia, raffle prizes, and an evolution-related lecture. It’s time to work on the details, and we could use your help. This meeting is on Monday, 1/16/12, at 6:30pm, and we’ll be gathering in the Solara Apartments lobby. Come join us and make this the best Darwin Day celebration yet!

Update: Meeting notes are posted below.

Darwin Day Planning Meeting

Solara Apartments
January 16, 2012

In attendance: Jami, Jerry, Greg, Mike S.

* Likely because of the weather, tonight’s turnout was small. We kept the meeting brief, since not enough key people were present to get a lot done. We went over action items from last week – review those notes for more detailed descriptions of what (and who) we need.

* Food: We might get a bigger draw since we’re holding the event in Seattle, so we should be prepared for this. Purchase 3 sandwich platters and 5 meat and cheese platters. Fruit and veggie trays.

* Jerry: Follow up with Ericka about speaker. If that doesn’t work out, talk to Ericka about what kind of lecture she’d like to give.

* Game show: Still need to think of questions, print off new cards. Bob S. would like to help with trivia.

* Kofi is willing to assist with the children. We still need someone to lead this. Possibly get help from CQNW – won’t know until they can talk about it during the CQNW board meeting. Have snacks and drinks in the children’s room. Movie playing. Greg can also assist. Keep thinking of ideas.

* Need someone to be in charge of decorations. Center pieces, streamers, tablecloths, etc. Have at least one person go to a party store and select appropriately themed décor: animals (especially finches, dinosaurs, other extinct animals), nature, biology.

* Ask an Atheist live audio: Unfortunately, we don’t think the logistics would work out during the event. We will promote them during announcements.

* Jerry: Call John K. about being emcee.

* Call out for volunteers to set up and clean up.

* Need more input from other freethought groups. Volunteers, programming ideas, raffle prizes, etc.

* Jerry: Send emails to different Meetup groups to solicit help.

* Jami: Create official Meetup event. Jerry to cross post to other Meetups.

* Jerry: See if we can get into the 2100 Building an hour earlier.

* Ericka: Contact student groups about the event.

Next Meeting – Tentative until further notice.
* We’ll probably need another meeting in January, since we still have a lot to do.
