Meeting Minutes

Greg started the meeting at 19:37.

Jeff gave the treasurer's report at 19:37 (see above).

Phil gave the facilities report at 19:47. The kitchen is nearly done sans plumbing and the front door NFC is functional again. See above for additional facilities updates. The public camera is not displaying properly. There is a new camera on the way for the office that is less hacky.

We've been in contact with GAN for tool funding and personal sponsorships. See Jeff for more details.

Events: There is a minor LAN party coming up this Saturday to test the waters.

The Nerd Rummage Sale is coming up soon (see facebook page).

We are currently planning a robot battle event, see Dmitriy for additional details.

The sewing event that Greg helped organize went well!

The next meeting will occur on March 14th.
