Meeting Minutes

Bradley started the meeting at 19:32 with a review of the action items. Donation receipts are being generated and sent out to those who requested them and you should see an email asking for requests shortly. The 2020 fiscal report is complete.

Jeff gave the treasurer's report at 19:34 (see above).

Brian gave the facilities report at 19:40. The planar has been rebuilt after being heavily abused. Brian is adding a focusing laser to the big laser for targeting and replacing belts that have gotten worn.

We're planning on having another cleanup day in mid-March.

The next meeting will occur on February 11th.
