Bulletin - Friday October 2, 2:00 pm

** Meeting postponed until Wednesday Oct 21st **

Due to several schedule conflicts and the overwhelming stress many of the undergrad and grad students are currently facing with upcoming midterms, the AMS presidency has made the decision to postpone the next student meeting until after fall break. We are tentatively rescheduling the meeting for 3:30 pm on Wednesday, October 21. We will send out details soon.

There are a few announcements we wanted to make before fall break, if you don't check the website:

The first is that we have a couple of small fund raising games in which we would like as much participation as possible. This includes the annual snowfall contest, which many of you may be familiar with, and also the new dartboard contest. Details about these, along with entry forms, are available on the website at http://ametsoc.utah.edu. There is little commitment on your part for either of these, and there is a small cost, but the funds benefit our planned trip to Atlanta. We would like you to spread the word about these, so tell your friends and family. Both these contests are not too serious but a lot of fun!

Those of you who do plan to go to the annual conference in Atlanta and haven't already done so, please email me if you are definitely going.

Student assistantships for the annual conference are due *October 16,* if you would like to volunteer at the conference and have your travel and hotel paid for. Information and application form is http://www.ametsoc.org/meet/annual/studentassistantprogram.html.

We want to attend a Ute football game, please be thinking which game would work best for you and vote at the meeting! Saturday November 7th at 4pm vs. New Mexico or Saturday November 21st at 2pm versus San Diego State.

Submit T-shirt designs to Ben Foreback now at ben.foreback@utah.edu. We will vote at the meeting on the winner.

Remember that dues are $10; this includes a t-shirt!! We will collect dues at the meeting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Our meeting agenda for the 21st will still be as follows:

* Vote for decision to purchase a new computer for the forecast groups
* Forecast groups update
* Prepare to start a new season of utahskiweather.com, including sign ups(?)
* Vote for T-shirt
* Vote on whether we want utahskiweather hoodies; the cost will be about $25 per hoodie
* Collection of dues
* Take group photo

We need at least 50% of the AMS group there in order to hold voting. Snacks will be provided! Please contact the presidency if you would like anything added to this agenda.
