The ECOS senate meeting, held on Feb. 26, started at 8:17 p.m. and ended at 9:08 p.m. Spring Dorm Olympics is fast approaching and was the focus of discussion.

Senators discussed conditions for each event of the week first by finalizing the first day of Dorm Olympics with Pizza with the President on Monday, Mar. 6, at 5:00 p.m. in Iota Lounge. The location, either the turf field or the GO Pavilion, are still pending for regular dodge ball on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. Rules for i-float dodge ball on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., including the number of players allowed per float, length of each round and qualifications for being out of the game, were decided.

The details for slip n’ slide kickball on Friday at 3:00 p.m. included the decision to use rain barrels to hold water out on the field for keeping the slides wet as well as using dish soap. Kappa Field Day will take place on Saturday following the rugby games from 4:00 p.m until 6:00 p.m. It was also decided that DJing from two individual senators will take place during the event in addition to the games and activities during the field day.

The times for events were also finalized to avoid conflicting with Pitchers with Professors on the Friday of Dorm Olympics, as well as Saturday during Alumni Weekend.

Following Dorm Olympics, the senators discussed the stolen ECOS speaker that went missing at the Delta Moms party on Saturday, Feb. 18. Shortly following the theft two leads included finding an ASPEC sticker that had been removed from the speaker in Delta, and then a speaker cord with ECOS labeled on it found near Alpha. Additionally, a local pawn shop was contacted to see if any speakers had been brought in, although the attempt did not yield any results. There have since been no new leads, but if anyone has any information regarding the theft, they’re are encouraged to contact ECOS.

Other business included the debate of spending the remaining budget to fund an ice machine at Nu or funding the replacement of the shower and water fountain located at South Beach. 

Campaign week for ECOS positions will be Mar. 13 through Mar. 17, and voting will take place Mar. 20 through Mar. 24.

To finish the meeting the senators planned a bowling event for before spring break and deliberated over additional senator events such as either paintball or laser tag after spring break.
