 +Discussion
 +  * Location: 126 York Street, half a block east of Dalhousie, in the Byward Market
 +  * People who have been there liked it
 +  * Letting people in the door may be an issue, but Shopify is planning to install an entrance call-box to make that easier
 +  * Parking should be OK, although the nearest parking is paid parking. Is there free parking after 5pm or 7pm in the area?
 +
 +The motion passed unanimously.
 +
 +==== Followup ====
 +Need to tell membership
 +  * Big notice on web site
 +  * notices on all mail lists we have

 +      * Board
 +      * Board members
 +      * Photo SIG
 +      * Sysadmin
 +      * Events (used by committees organizing events)
 +      * Announce
 +  * We will repeat notices on our active "​Tech"​ list (maybe for the next several meetings?)
 +  * Contact Algonquin - Robert will contact Richard Hagemeyer about our move, and ask about the possibility of creating a student group with involvement from OCLUG members
 +
 +===== Committee Status Reports =====
 +==== Open Source Festival ====
 +  * Name change to "User Group Connect"​
 +    * Robert and Scott checked this on the web. 
 +      * Several companies "​Connect"​ with the their "User Groups",​ so that "User Group Connect"​ appears on their web site, but they don't seem to use this particular phrase as a trademark.
 +      * "Adobe Connect User Groups"​
 +      * "​Social Connections,​ the IBM Connections User Group"
 +      * We decided that our phrase is unique to our group .
 +  * The committee has decided to go ahead with Oct 20, and to ask Shopify for use of their space
 +  * We expect to have better response from clubs with a firm date and location
 +  * We currently have 3 sponsoring groups very interested and 3 groups committed to having a table and staffing it

 +This group has not met yet, but Ian has volunteered to set up a meeting soon.
