Meeting Minutes

Phil (chairman) started the meeting at 19:30. Jennifer (treasurer) gave the treasurer's report at 19:32 Phil gave the facilities report in Tim's stead. The hallway toilet has been fixed and the office sink is still being worked on. Two tables have been rewired and the third (table 1) is still in progress. We're going to shoot for more Tuesday Night Feasts in the future because we are currently negative in the facilities fund.

The pig roast is on June 14
