VII. Great American Smoke Out
A. This is an event that the American Cancer Society created to help smokers around the country make the resolution to quit smoking.  Since it is an event that takes place in various states all over, it shows smokers that they have support and people who care that they quit.
B. GASO will take place on November 18th, 2010
C. Sarah has a giant cigarette that we will use as a prop, and in previous years, we have handed out "quit packs" to smokers
D. We will also hand out dum-dums on Rabb steps and outside of Usdan with little facts about lung cancer on them
E. We will also have signs on campus like they do in the Truth campaign
1. These signs will have numbers on one side, with facts that relate to those numbers on the other side, to grab people's attention as they walk on campus
F. We may also make a chalk outline 30 feet from the major buildings on campus to show people how far they have to be from them to smoke
G. We will gather all materials and prepare them on the 17th, so please be sure to be at the meeting to help out!
H. Ideas for events for GASO: bowling down the giant cigarette, pinata, raffle tickets if you turn in your cigarettes which will be entered into a drawing for a prize, "blow bubbles don't smoke"

Our next meeting will be on November 3rd, at 9pm in SCC 313!
