Meeting Started a little late, as people trickled in, 4:45pm it started, Greg Alfred, Steven, Morgain, John, Ray, Bandit, Chris, Adric, Geoff, Juli, Aaron.. In attendance,

Ice breaker was done, what was your hackable thing you got from christmas,

Membership, 4 new! Woohoo Tressurer Report: end of year report is still being compiled, but will be set soon, Kickstarter is funded, $1200 funded can still get more for stretch funding! so we can do the dual extruder or the 2nd printer.

NLTF, we got word back on one location, hes willing to work with us price wise(mountain and 5th), the other location (san metao and menaul area), we need to get a fundraiser going, for moving,

January Calendar! is horribly blank, other than The packet party thursday. New Calendar will be posted here in a little bit.

Create a for classes and notes and such (Adric will do it),

Hacking Chocolate, for February, Geoof and adric, Workshop theme, maybe 2 or 3,

March of the robots, again? Needs a person to be the event coordinator, Chris says he can be the go between, got lots of ideas, Challenger learning center, Johns roomba, zoot, robot art. will need more folks and ides,

We then took a hour25 to take down the votes on the cards.

Meeting end called at 7:04pm
