  1. Ken Cunefare, the academic sponsor for GT Motorsports requested that the team be given excused absences for December 1-10, 2003 to compete in Australia.  Cunefare described the program and why this was an important competition.  After much discussion, the Committee voted to approve the request.  There was general agreement that this in no way set a precedent for future requests and that a cover letter would be included with the approved request that would be given to the teaching faculty.  (See Attached).
