    S30 Celebration Funds

    GA allocates $500 or less for S30 spending on a celebration (food, cake, etc.), fliers, street theater, etc. with the understanding that some of this money may instead come from the existing food budget. Receipts will be given for all where possible. (We will pass the hat now and subtract any money gained from the overall allocation. We collected $44.)

    2. DEBT
    3. WHO DO YOU OWE?
    4. WHO OWNS YOU?

    A means to inflate with helium will be figured out in NYC during S17. After subtracting the cost of helium, the remainder amount will be used to buy as many balloons as possible.

    • Ballpark estimate amount: $400.
    • Using Tactical allocated funds for 2 hotspots which need to be replaced.
    • Because there will be more streamers than usual, 2 battery packs need to be purchased for S17.
    • 4 LiveStream mounts for streamers also need to be purchased to provide more stabilized, professional video.
