Tim gave the facilities report at 19:35. We just had a cleanup day and thanks to everyone that helped! The work tables have new surfaces that are generally unmarred! We will be running some new electric circuits for the lounge/sewing/knitting area.

Phil gave projects and event updates 19:36. We have been approached by Joe, a member of a Montgomery hackerspace, about participating in Southern Makers faire in May. On Saturday, several members will be presenting projects at the MythBusters show at the VBC. The mysterious stranger that offered to help with the radio tower has not been seen since.
