Meeting Minutes

Treasurer's report from Matt R.:

  • June was good, came out ahead.
  • July looks like it's going according to plan
  • We seem to be saving about $150/mo.
  • Utilities are $100-$150/mo, down quite a bit from June last year.
  • Donate early, if possible.

Facilities report from Tim H.:

  • We've been pretty busy with events, so we haven't been focusing on other things.
  • The stairs are finished and the next order of business is reinforcing the floors in the loft and adding shelving.
  • Tim will soon be looking for volunteers to do initial setup and potentially management of different areas such as electronics and tools.


  • We are considering participating in the Sept. 10 Atlanta Maker Faire.
  • Free for everyone but vendors.
  • August Hamfest here in Huntsville. Greg is looking to get a table to set us up.


  • The dust collection system is nearly setup.
  • Wayne has an awesome portal gun that he's built up from scratch.
  • Do not leave out food. This is how we get ants.
  • Be nice to the neighbors. They are our friends.

The next monthly meeting will be on August 15.
