The Associated Student Body Clubs and Events Board selected two of its members to join the election committee that would meet in case Student Senate President David Hylton is recalled in an election that will take place Tuesday.

The members are Physics Club representative Colton Hobbs and Medieval Battle Club representative Teresa Bergman.

“We need to form an election committee in case David (Hylton) is recalled,” said ASB adviser Juan Miguel Blanco. “If that is the case, the committee would get together and move the process forward.”

The election committee is responsible for addressing reports of campaign violations.

At its meeting Tuesday, CAEB also discussed the schedule for Thursday’s Club Day.

The plans included a “pumpkin chucking” game at 10:30 a.m., followed by a costume contest at 11 a.m., a club contest judging at 11:30 a.m., an Improv Club performance at noon and an open mic session at 12:40 p.m.

The contest for Club Day is based on which club can create the best “curse.” The curses must be appropriate for each club, and the prize for the winning club is $30.

Club Day also includes a scavenger hunt styled maze full of information about the different clubs with a prize at the end.

CAEB President Justin Nicholson said that although putting on Club Day has been a lot of work, it will be a great event for the clubs and students.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun but has been a lot of energy expended,” said Nicholson. “We’ve figured out everything that is going to happen (at Club Day).”

The Accounting Society is having a meeting Thursday at 3:45 p.m. in Library Room 1, where Fernando Castro from the Franchise Tax Board will come to speak about getting a state job in the accounting field.

Deloitte, one of the big four accounting firms, will also be at the meeting.

The Sociology Club sent a thanks to the board for passing a $150 grant to help the club attend a local conference. The club, however, may not need them money after all.

“The organization contacted us to say that we could get in for free if we volunteer,” said club representative Laurie Jones. “If that’s the case then we would return and not accept the grant.”

The Improv Club will be having their second late night meeting next week but are still deciding on a theme for that event.
