 +
 +Skipping the ice breaker due to lateness.
 +
 +Tressurer report: memberships down 4 and added one.  Please annotate any cash memberships via square app or squareup website. ​  Any boardmember can do it, ask Adric or Geoff for credentials.
 +
 +Comcast is still bugging us for early termination. ​  This is for the defunt llc, we are going to try to return the modem, ​  but at this time we don't believe we should be recieving this. We may  try and get comcast to supply a copy of the signed contract.
 +
 +Talked about the school factory.
 +
 +Sponsored membership contest: ​ no big progress, ​ adric and addie need to meet and get started.
 +
 +Maker Faire, Charel brought fliers. Things quelab may be able to help/​improve
 +
 +    * Soldering station (3 or 4 tables)
 +      * people to teach soldering
 +    * (would like), an advanced soldering table or two, $5 kits?
 +    * tear down station(uncycling)
 +    * quelab area
 +    * if we wind up making kits,  profits would be split between quelab and ammf
 +
 +Lab Canteen: ​ Ray we need organizing first, will may do some prototyping.
 +
 +Space organization: ​ Lab needs cleaning, ​ yard,  geoff weeded a bit.  We still need to do some shrubbery clearing
 +
 +Insurance, ​ Philadelphia insurance company, ​  ​finally ​ found someone who would do us,  $1491 per year.   Will has an aunt in CO  that may be able to get us some comparison shopping.
 +
 +Discussion: can we split the policy, ​ can we pay monthly, ​ and can we get a 2nd  quote?
 +
 +Arduino class: 15 people (we were sold out).  Diminishing returns on  attendance, ​ we would love to get out a exit  survey for people. ​    ​Cameron liked how it was fairly self directed. ​ and cross support. ​ Ray found a very positive feedback.
 +
 +    * Survey questions: ​ how clear was it that they were welcome ​ to come for hacknights, and their impressions,​ and any ideas that they  would like to do,  also let them know their arduino april membership has  expired, ​ monthly arduino event/​hacknight?​ perhaps charge more later
 +
 +Things that go boom. Geoff wants to contact fire marshall. projects: ​ Rockets 101 Greg,
 +
 +    * snappers (morgan)
 +    * colors flame test
 +    * carbide cannons
 +    * paper rocket
 +    * paper "​bangers"​ origami noise makers
 +    * hydrogen bubbles?
 +
 +May 15th (Hacknight) boom planning meeting
 +
 +July Event: fizzy, ginger ale  Things that are cold? liquid nitrogen ice cream? decompression freezing....? ​ need a Dewar for liquid nitrogen.... lego event? hovercraft?
 +
 +themed nights, ​ Board game night, ​ linux, night, ​ and  board game night, ​ perhaps a arduino night, ​  these types of nights need more pushing (calendars alibi). ​ also need  folks to request the hacknight fees, or put a kitty out as obvious as  possible that we need something in compensation for these nights (even  2600). ​ Charel and Morgain need to talk about how to find people ​ interested in doing some structured learning for linux night.
 +
 +New business Lease: we agreed for  another 3 month lease Geoff and Adric as signatory in absence of greg and walter: (agreed to by a quorum).
 +
 +Walter is MIA so we don't know if there was any  progress. ​ I have not seen a posting to the members. ​  next step is to  post to cl/​lobo/​alibi/​cnm
 +
 +Not much info for ABQ Hack,
 +
 +Board nomination ​ board members: ​ Req from Heather ​ Belew, (group agreed we would accept her as a candidate, if she thinks ​ she has the time)
 +
 +Fleemarket: ​ perhaps the 26th,  people were a bit   ​lukewarm on it. It is a good source of revenue, and Adric thinks the  cleanup/​sorting of the piles of crap we have part of it should be  mandatory(or atleast strongly encouraged)
 +
 +Ray found a grant writer... ​ but may not have any contact. ​ Question was  how much money?
 +
 +Hackaday showcase(Hackaday wants to publish videos ​ from all hackerspaces that submit tours/info videos... ​ Talked with ray  about this.
 +
 +closed meeting about 6:30
