Membership report, There is a cork board of member info, they are yours to decorate, describe or add info to. we need a membership manager(chair), coordinating, members list, update the cork board. Kevin has volunteered to help maintain the volunteer group. he will work with Geoff to transition.

Treasurer's report, we got our first check on the IndieGoGo campaign, it is only part of the total, $2190 -our taxes have been filed. as well to the SF

last year, +8000 in member +2250 donations -1400 utilities, -13560 rent (missed a few figures i will get from Geoff and fill this in a bit more -pm)

Packet party report. will have another one Thurs, learn to knit class had 5 attendees, weekly board game night is Monday night it has been good.

Ace projects, need to work with a $5000 budget!

3d printer project, the 3dprinter project will owe Quelab for 10 one month memberships, we decided to charge full price so the moneys can go into Quelab general fund, with the expectation that they will be able to do it with the remaining funds, and if not we can see about pulling the fund from general. was called for a consensus vote, and it passed!

hacking chocolate was lukewarm at best, we would love for some folks to setup a few hacking chocolate classes. or classes at all.

March of the Robots, march of the robots, Chris hues offered to be a point person, but we want to do march of the robots.

old business, Greg, was unable to do the sort last month's planning meeting, Walter will help sort the cards and post to Quelab!

Friends of Quelab cards are almost ready! woohoo!

SPIE Grant has been submitted, this is to setup some classes/training on how to learn about optics.

New Location Task force, we like the location at mountain, and 5th, caveat being that it is on the market, and will maybe come with a 90 day possible kick out. Walter will work on getting us a walk through for members.

workshops, stilts making, and brewing class, would love more! Need to start a club, for it. Hacker Scouts, Bandit talked about it.

  • we need a manager for it,
  • we would need some seed funding,
  • we would need people to be here to do it
  • would need advertising
