the following links will give you a comprehensive overview the contents of budget 2013. I'll bring along a few printouts tomorrow night as well.

A more comprehensive explanation of the changes:
We encourage you to pick any elements that you feel would make for good discussion.
Wednesday December 5th is/was budget day. Some folks have asked if we could facilitate a philosophical dialogue on the contents of this years budget. So we are going to give it a go. We'll circulate a summary of the budget around in advance of the session and then we'll break into groups to discuss it from a philosophical point of view. It has the potential to bring us interesting places. Let's see where...
We'll be starting the conversation at 7:30pm upstairs in Eamon Doran's Tavern On the Green. Last month we met upstairs in our own dedicated space. It's spacious and quiet and feedback from all who attended was positive. So we are back there again this month.
Just one thing we would ask: As Eamon Doran's will be opening the upstairs section next Tuesday exclusively for Socrates Cafe, we would greatly appreciate if you could purchase a beverage from the upstairs bar at some point during the evening. It's such a great venue that we would like to do what we can to nurture our relationship with them at this early stage.
So do come along for another engaging conversation that invites all to participate and learn.
