UCC has a bunch of money. We should spend it on some of the following:


  • No ongoing costs, unless the purchase is able to benefit a large majority of members.
  • Everything bought for the clubroom must be purchased with security. And no, we don't have to lock down the couch (you idiot).
  • You cannot just give a price for something - we need links to *real* items with *real* prices. Saying "I can get this at half price from a mate of a mate on the second thursday of the month" isn't that helpful.
