Treasurer's report:

Down to abut 13 or 14 members. So we need to be a bit more proactive on getting new sign ups going on the easy squeezy payment plan. We have about $2400 in the bank.

Collection of other minuets while the Secretary was gone:

There were no official board meetings while the Secretary was gone, oh well...

Frederick's PR Proposal:

We talked about Fredericks generous proposal, and would like to take him up on his offer. The next step would be to set a date for the next open house, and to check in with him as to what he needs to cover the pumpkin chunkin event. We should also ask him who gets the control rights to the videos.

Representing EMS at the Pumpkin Chunkin event:

We should ask Nick, or Rick if there is room for a EMS table at the event. Either way we should try to hand out flyers. We have some left but should probably print more.

The Next Open House:

We should probably send a query to the Discuss list about when the next open house should be. We should also double check other community calendars for conflicts.

Discussions about collaboration with the UofO.

A couple of profs at the UofO have contacted us about helping on a few projects. We may pen our name on a grant application for a small bit of funding directed at one of these projects. We had some excited discussion about the possibilities, for either the cluster computing project, or a wearable computer project.

Action Items:


  • Contact Marie about printing more flyers
  • Search for people who might man the EMS table at the PC event.



  • Talk to Rick or Nick about the EMS table.
  • Ask Frederick about who would have the rights to the produced videos.


  • Send an email to Discuss asking for possible open house dates.




Kassie moved for adjournment, Seconded by Darrell
