Minutes from Social Comm Meeting on November 15th 2013 at 5pm
Ticket Collection – This has been advertised, at the Bailey it will coincide with dinner, at Brooks it is just before the pub quiz. The aim is to make it look nice, so wearing black tie. There will be a computer available for people to buy ents tickets. Millie and Serge are to organise teams to hand out tickets.
Increase Ents Ticket Sales – In future years there needs to be something to show Freshers/postgraduates how much fun the previous balls have been, as they may have had negative experiences elsewhere. Postgraduates had mentioned that they thought the tickets were too expensive, so a 20% discount was agreed. It was suggested to do a raffle for champagne and a deal so that if a friend had recommended that someone get a ticket, they got a 10% discount. This last idea was rejected as it was felt that enough strategies were in place already, and it could be tricky logistically, but could be used for subsequent events.
Flyers – Tash Richardson is to make A4 flyers with about 3 lines of text to advertise the ents tickets. These will be printed by Serge and Gabe will distribute them to groups on Sunday.
Ticket Delivery – Tash is to organise teams for this, and also for posting flyers. Cressida and Ben will help put tickets in envelopes. Gabe is to email everyone to let them know to expect their ticket.
The deadline to buy Ents tickets is 6pm on Tuesday.
Cressida and Gabe will number the tickets to make sure none go missing.
Table plans will be put on the tables.
Takeover nights – Gabe has discussed in theory with clubs the idea of doing Cuth’s take over nights, possibly with Cuth’s banners, Cuth’s DJs etc. Also the possibility of Acoustic nights, though licences need to be checked. Agreed to be a good idea
