New Business

Algonquin Location

  • Overall consensus seems to be positive
    • There is Parking
    • Access by bus
    • Minor inconvenience with projector
    • Minor inconvenience with room changes
    • Possibility of getting students to show up
    • Free is better than not, as with the Library
  • Result: Keep Algonquin as a location for the foreseeable future.

Room booking

  • In limbo due to waiting for Richard Hagemyer to get back to us about the September 1 booking before the actual meeting. Otherwise, we may have to postpone the meeting.

Raspberry Pi Day

  • Agreement to have one
  • Need to find a venue
  • Saturday preferred to get a whole day
  • get info from Richard as to what events worked at previous Raspberry Pi days
  • Advertise event through Buy a Pi (?)
  • Late October
  • Perhaps find some Halloween related projects

Other business

  • Let membership know that we are looking for topics and speakers
  • Kelly handed off corporate registration documents to Bruce
