PostSubject: Boffer Club is almost an RSO   Mon Nov 15, 2010 9:39 pm

So, for those who don't know (which is everyone, AFAIK), Boffer Club has been reviewed by the RSO committee, and has not been rejected, in fact, the only issue they had with our constitution was some grammar/composition stuff.

What this means is that there's now a good chance we will be an RSO next semester, thus we should figure out what we're going to do about that. Some issues include, how do we want to advertise around campus, what do we want to requst from SAFB (they fund clubs, if you don't know), and what do we want to do about representing Missouri S&T.

Thus, I am making this topic, because the forums are a good place to gather ideas, especially if they're complicated. So, if you have ideas about what Boffer Club should do with RSO status, post it here.

AWESOME! But why next semester and not this semester? Or do you mean it won't officially go into effect until next semester?

1. A big sign we can plant next to the puck during practices. We can design it, if they buy the actual sign itself. Make it weatherproof.
2. Possibly somewhere to store boffer club equipment (banner, spare blues, shields, headbands, ropes, boats, ect.)
3. A website. We should be able to transfer what we already have to the school domain, and link our forums to the website.
4. An honest-to-god sewing machine, a student model Singer maybe.
5. Loaner tabards
6. List serv

By the time we get looked at by the people at the next level, it probably won't matter, but it wouldn't be official til next semester, in any case

i agree with most of what Iohn wants:

but i don't think we should ask for money for a sewing machine, at least not yet.
also we will need to advertise since we will be able to post flyers as an RSO, if we get flyers in every dorm we should be able to get a lot of people who don't know about us.

also, we MUST start thinking about how we are going to keep boffer club going after we leave. I don't want this to fall on its face after all this work.

Be aware, Michael, we are not a living history group. A lot of what we do is in no way pertinent to the "middle ages". While we sometimes label ourselves as "medieval reenactment" we are more of a contact sport with funny uniforms.

If you're looking for period examples of medieval combat and culture you should not use us as a reference. If, however, you like the flair of medieval-esque boffer sports, by all means come check us out!

You can PM me if you'd like and I can point you in the right direction for "period" accurate medieval reenactment.

Iohn

I'd like to add to this that a great way to advertise is to get club t-shirts. I also think fliers anywhere and everywhere are a must. Right now if we put them up in the dorms (or anywhere else for that matter) they get taken down since we're not official.

I also think a place to store equipment is paramount. There's no guarantee that Iohn and I will continue to live at The Forge next year, so we may not be able to hold everyone's stuff anymore if that happens. It would be good to have a back-up just in case (especially if that back-up is on campus somewhere, then we won't have to drive everything up each Wednesday).

i agree, some storage area in a building near the puck is preferable. Also we really need to encourage people to get their own weapons. I'm tired of practice having to wait till weapons arrive, we should all have our own weapons by now.

I think we should hold a foamsmithing session for just the club sometime during the winter to make stuff, focusing on people who don't have anything.

back on topic,
T-shirts could be cool, and a easy way to denote officers.

I've always thought it'd be cool to store stuff in someting similar to that thing St. Pats uses to sell t-shirts, you know, the wooden thing they roll out there every day. I'd imagine it wouldn't be that expensive/hard to build one once we get a place to store it.

Also, Nick wants a copy of our "safety documents" for the RSO committee. Are we going to use the Dag one or come up with a Missouri S&T version? I think he also wants a copy of the rules. Just something to discuss at the exec meeting.

Id send the rules of dagorhir with a note that our safety documents are worked into the rules. weapon construction, testing, legal strike zone, etc.

I heard from the committee today, and have sent the revisions they suggested (a change in terminology and a clarification of what business is conducted at meetings)

Nick finally got back to me, and says he wants to meet with me, as the changes they want don't come across very well in e-mail, I have no idea what the changes might be

I'm going to meet with him on Monday at 2, it might be a good idea for our new officers to come

I just got done meeting with Nick (it was a last minute thing, so I couldn't invite anyone else) and the changes they needed were pretty minor, it turns out the delays with the process are because we're been passed by the RSO committee, so Nick is having to relay our stuff between us and the next level, I've heard from two people on the RSO committee that we should be approved before the end of the semester
