Special Agenda Items

  • Alan's Box
    • Apparently someone appropriated Alan's project box for the recycling bin and he has requested we stop using it for that. We now need a recycling bin. Also, that wasn't awesome. (Alan volunteered it for a party, but forgot to reclaim it afterwards. Thus, he was un-awesome.)

    • Try to organize a soldering workshop
    • We should market it
    • Maker's Faire Tool Race (probably not possible)

    • Robert Wray and us need to follow through on the GRL project
    • It's going well and there's hope of us making a good case to google
