Discussed

Financial Update:

  • We have money in the bank. Yay! Starting to turn positive
  • We can cover this and next month's rent and utilities
  • Utilities discussion: finding members are leaving the door open from office to shop like trying to get the AC cooling back there. We need to stop this, add a door closer and communicate to everyone that we are not cooling the back.
  • Will have a formal report for next meeting

General Discussion

  • Fireproof safe donated by Chris is now available to be used as a flammables cabinet or anything else. Will post to Slack to get member input
  • Red Top Mountain Maker Fest was pretty small. We had a great spread, but turn out was low.
  • The recent Saturday Open House had a good turn out, definitely want to repeat again as possible
  • Good turnout for the Battlebots season premiere. People had fun.
  • Freeside talking about collaborating on some sort of Gala/Silent Auction to show off local maker work... targeting this fall
  • We need to schedule another build-out for clean-out and in particular need to get a light switch installed for the shop lights
  • Need Chris to order paper towel refills for the dispensers and more toilet paper.
