Meeting Minutes

  • Sue gave a financial update.
    • We have no idea what the membership is. Blame Jondale.
    • Monies are looking good and dues are up.
  • Issac is updating on our KILLSWITCH situation.
    • We have a place and date sort of, but are waiting on a lawyer to look at the forms they gave us.
    • He has asked to see our insurance policy as well and he will get back to us in a few days.
  • Andrew updated on the wall and blacksmithing building
    • The wall is looking great and the primer is looking really great.
    • We need to put another layer of drywall on and not mud before getting inspected again.
    • Next is installing the doors.
    • No updates for the blacksmithing building
    • We'll take a look after the meeting to see if any pieces are being damaged from sitting around so long.
  • Jondale uploaded the lease forms to the cloud and available for use.
    • How do we determine what is listed in haxdb or not? We could make an initial list and then ask the czars if anything is missing?
  • How do we get rid of the sandblasting cabinet?
    • Sean has appointed himself as head of the Kiss Committee and whoever takes the sandblast cabinet gets a kiss from him.
  • Issac is adding stuff to the agenda now.
    • He made a poster to advertise our Peace Officers.
  • Now Issac is letting anyone add stuff to the agenda.... gosh.
  • Sean went to the Mayor's Maker's Council meeting.
    • He's heading up the Marketing Committee.
    • Do we want to host a Makers Meetup? We'll talk about that in the future.
  • There is an issue with people not using the filtration system in the woodshop.
    • We will probably always have to educate people, but maybe we remind the membership more aggressively.
    • We can also remind people of the consequences of not using the filtration, or spray cans outside, or other rules.
    • Billy has flammable materials in his zone... tsk tsk.
  • Can we get rid of the stupid lock safe? What about the janky cash box?
    • No one but Tracy has strong feelings about it, so Tracy will deal with it
  • Sue has some chairs that we can maybe get donated -but not too many.
  • Suzannah needs help on what she needs to do since she's new and we just assumed she knew everything.
    • For example, what tools need auth classes?
  • Nightmare green is a real color.
  • Board members are required to love these m-fers, no matter how many bandsaw blades they break.
  • Next board meeting: November 15th, 7pm
