Meeting Minutes

Section42 has an inventory for any tools that are currently loaned to the shop, so please list your items there.

Jeff gave the treasurer's report (see above). The insurance was bundled in with last month's expenses, so it looks bad. The grants from Northrup Grumman will be coming in the next couple months.

We had Retro Gaming Night last weekend! It was awesome.

There was a very successful cleanup day two weekends ago and additional cleanup was performed before the the gaming night.

Phil needs to get the garden cleaned up since it's starting to grow grass and weeds.

Please make sure to cut 6pack holders and throw them away. They are not recyclable. Styrofoam and plastic cups need to go in the white bin in the main area. Items used for food should be thrown away.

Jeff and Justin will be putting together an embedded development station.

Project and event updates: Josh will be attending the EV meetup on July 16th at the experimental solar charging station near the intersection of Airport Road and Memorial Parkway. Anyone is welcome to show up and there will be test driving of many different electric vehicles including the Fisker Karma and a Tesla Roadster.

On July 24th, there is another chain mail class.

On Wednesday and Thursday of next week, Bob will be monopolizing the laser cutter for the SciQuest event.

Next Meeting date: August 8, 2012
