PRESENT: nashjc, maggi, mcr, roland, tyler. regrets: Ian (present in IRC)
Important fact that we obsessed over: all flavoured chips have MSG, except those from shoppers drug mart.
added AGM issues.
no questions about what was discussed. These are not official. no motion.
- Ian put up candidates page. - we have 5 people running, MCR not standing again. - should send out an email at the time: oclug-announce. - Roland has ballot box. - maggi will make ballots up. - we will ask for a volunteer from the group to scrutinize. - discussion about bylaws and how/if/when to change it. - need a membership list. (ACTION: mcr) - ice-breaker question: what do you want OCLUG do this coming year?
- noted no work on Programming Olympics. Added item to agenda! - added LitW booking.
- maggi will coordinate contacting Programming Olympics people. - coordinate with last year's judges: Don Kelly, Rob Echlin, John Nash, Tyler Tidman. - would look for more publicity for involvement of OCLUG. - do we need more judges? different judges? Does not think so. - do we want to offer more prizes? bigger prizes? NAMES: Rex Woolard, Ian Allen, Richard Hagemeier.
