  • Fundraising - (From what I can tell, and since no one got back to me with information about it, I think this was not discussed at meeting - JT)

3. New Business

  • Storage areas: No Storage up on the top of the storage hall!
  • RFID system returns!
    • A BIG thanks to Troy Ross for his work in updating this system!
    • The revised system does not blink right away, because it checks with Wild Apricot real-time
  • Gonner: Tool Room: someone put a bunch of paint and chemicals in there. Unknown whom did it, there is a more proper storage area in the big bathroom
  • SECURITY: Crime we may have had some cars rifled Friday night
    • Suggestion: Adric, a fence along the 7th street side, from the NW corner of the building to the drive well would keep people/possible people the tracks and or from even wanting to cut through the Quelab part of the lot
