MeetUp WePay – Need to meet with Mark about what it is and how to manage money flowing through it.Laz0rz – Rob has a lazor. Its set up in the space and usable. It has been used. Does denhac want to buy it. Rob spent ~$1200. We have money is reserves to buy it. Damon recommends some upgrades that are reasonable/doable. Finance peeps approve the purchase (outright).

Policy for minors as members – Revisit next meeting. More stuff to review.


3D printing – We have 3 printers. Do we want to take the three piles of printer things plus some monies ($200), and trade it for a lulzbot mini? Person making this offer is going to refurb the three piles of printer and sell them. If he can sell them and recoup the $200, we don’t have the pay. All who are in the know think it is a good idea. We have the funds to make this happen. Person wanting the monies doesnt want the monies until after they sell the refurb printers. Put to board vote: Allin favor of trade + $.
