In Attendance: Patrick (Seneschal), Shannon (Herald), Katherine (Web), David Robb
Apologies: Rob (Marshal), Nora (Reeve), Chantelle (A&S)
None asked for, none received.
Crescent Fence: Booking fee ($12) still not paid. [PB - I believe this is in error and the amount has been payed.]
St Cath's: To be finalised next month when more of the relevant people are available.
Possibility that there was an error in the number of kingdom levies paid for non-paying attendees: Shannon to check.
Katherine: Some of the issues mentioned in the Steward's report are already documented.
General consensus: Shorter reports are preferred.
Canterbury Faire (Katherine): The agreed upon transport support is to be paid to the B&B, for them to disburse appropriate amounts to other parties (in particular, Ed & Elizabeth).
The budgets for the separate breakfasts ("Bookends" handled by K & D, vs weekday handled by Ed) were a bit out, but all together added up to expectations.
St Valentine's Day Massacre: All well.
A&S Collegium (Shannon): Noted that non-member surcharge and Kingdom levy not required for ungarbed event. Question: Could fee be brought down to $10 for convenience?
May Day: Threat of a proposal from Chantelle. Noted that May Day may be unwise time for picnics in Auckland.
May Ball: Threat of a proposal from Katherine.
Council Meetings: Request that meetings be earlier (start 4-6) - Katherine.
A&S Sunday: Will rotate between the four offers (Shannon, Amy & Shannon, David & Katherine, Vanessa & Nicola).
