Meeting Minutes

Tyler started the meeting at 19:37.

There are no action items to cover.

We will be revisiting outstanding member grants after the meeting. Action item for Phil to look into this matter.

Jennifer gave the treasurer's report at 19:40.

We are currently working on a new donation tracking system, so please bear with us until it's all worked out.

Phil gave the facilities report at 19:46. The sink upstairs has been "repaired" with epoxy. If you see it leaking, get Phil. The lounge now has track lighting (thanks Hunter). Chris Bero and Travis Crumpton have been insulating the fab lab in order to improve climate control.

We're currently looking at upgrading the internet to handle heavier usage times.

Projects and events were announced at 19:49. The pig roast and lan party are coming up (no silent auction) on July 11th. Greg is looking for network help for hosting, so contact him if you'd like to help! Signup for dishes for the pig roast is on the wiki.

There is a canoeing and kayaking trip coming up soon, so check the wiki and your emails!

There are several Eat'n'Educates coming up soon, so check the calendar!

If you want to help with insulating the fab lab, talk to Chris Bero. There is plenty more to do and lots to learn.

We have 3 new members (see above).

July 23rd at 7:30PM will be the next meeting.
