                                                    Sports Center      $7,813.95
                                                    Alliance Books     $379.27
                                                    Grand Total        $13,100


             Proposal 1- Round Table Scanner
                 An Epson Perfection 4490 scanner                $ 150.00
             Grand Total                                         $ 150.00
            “When access to library scanners is curtailed, the cartoon editor
            and section editors who need cartoons jump into supersonic
            panic mode to ensure the necessary images have a chance of
            making it into the morning’s issue. It is a nerve-wracking and
            soul-crushing experience – and one that could be easily
            eliminated if Buncha-K would bestow $150 upon us to purchase a
            scanner of our very own. (Remember: a stress-free Round Table
            staff creates a finer issue!)

            According to quotes from Sherry Monahan in ISR, we could
            purchase a beautiful and effective Epson Perfection 4490 flatbed
            scanner for between $140 – 149. The only thing not included in
            this quote is the gratefulness and rejoicing that would result from
            this financing. Furthermore, if the Round Table staff collectively
            produces a child, we may name it Buncha-K.”
             Proposal 2- Bi-Monthly Shuttle to First Choice
                  Salary for drivers                      $ 372.00
                  Transportation                          $ 260.00
                  Advertising                             $ 50.00
             Subtotal                                     $ 682.00
            “Accessible, affordable and confidential sexual and nonsexual health
            care is essential on any college campus.”

            “Unfortunately, resources on campus and within the Beloit
            community require either valid health insurance and/or out of pocket

            “Women’s First Choice health clinic in Janesville offers many health
            services to men and women on a sliding pay scale, giving those
            students with out of state or no health insurance the opportunity to
            receive quality affordable care.”

            “We would like to offer free shuttles twice a month during clinic hours
            These shuttles would depart at 8:30am and 11:30am on one Tuesday
            and one Wednesday every month from January to May. We would rely
            on student drivers paying them the standard rate of $7.75 an hour, but
            we would also offer it as a volunteer position to students in sororities
            and fraternities in need of philanthropy hours.”
             Proposal 3- Sailboat Equipment
                   Butterfly main halyard              $ 38.25
                   Butterfly sheets                    $ 31.20
                   Hiking Straps                       $ 117.00
                   Boom Vang parts                     $ 330.00
                   Bolts                               $ 5.00
                   Boat Plugs                          $ 24.00
                   Buoy                                $ 140.00
                   Stay adjusters                      $ 72.00
             Other and misc. expenses
                   Shipping                            $ 44.55
             Subtotal                                  $ 802.00

            The Beloit Boating Club is making this proposal for sailboat
            parts, because we want to be able to use the Butterfly
            sailboats that the college already owns. Our club members
            have been down to the boathouse where they are kept and
            investigated what parts are missing. These are the things
            that our proposal consists of. The halyard and the sheet are
            ropes that are necessary in order to run these boats. A buoy
            is a necessity for learning the art of competitive sailing. In
            short, getting these parts are a must if Beloit College
            students want to enjoy the sport of sailing!
                   Proposal 4- Girls and Women in Science
                   Other Expenses
                       Friday Dinner (for 10)                            $ 177.00
                       Saturday Breakfast (for 7)                        $    28.00
                       Saturday Lunch (for 45)                           $ 371.25
                       T-shirts (for 75)                                 $ 446.88
                   Subtotal                                              $ 1,023.13

            “Girls and Women in Science (GWIS) is a hands-on science workshop for sixth grade girls,
            their teachers, and parents.”

            “The purpose of this event is twofold. First, it encourages girls to stay interested in science
            in an effort to alleviate the gender gap. Second, it gives Beloit College students an important
            outlet for community service and leadership while accomplishing many of the goals of a
            liberal arts education. During the conference, students run labs, play with the girls, and
            organize everything behind the scenes.”

            “This event will benefit the student body in two ways: 1) encourages students to participate
            in community service and leadership roles 2) provides the science students and the education
            students with the opportunity to volunteer in their area of expertise, something they do not
            often get to utilize in community service projects.”

            “This funding will cover the T-shirts provided to students to identify their involvement in this
            conference. Funding will also cover the dining costs of students eating meals with the girls
            during the course of the conference. All students can participate in this program and thus
            gain the benefits of T-shirts and meals.”
             Proposal 5- OEC Equipment
                 2 REI Half Dome 4 Tents                    $   518.00

                 4 North Face Terra 65 Backpack             $   596.00
                 4 Therm-a-Rest ProLite Plus Sleeping Pad   $   399.80
             Other and misc. expenses

             Subtotal                                       $ 2,249.80

            We propose to store and maintain this gear in the OEC
            Equipment Room.

            Whenever any student, group of students, or campus
            organization wishes to borrow equipment, it is the
            responsibility of the Equipment Manager to sign out
            equipment to the individuals who are borrowing it, and to
            check it back in upon its return. Individuals who damage
            equipment aside from normal wear and tear can be charged
            for the damage.
