Old Business

Need more of our business cards made ( Dana)

New Business

Party Recap - what worked, what should we do differently. June/July is too hot for many. Consider Spring time. Arduino and Raspberry Pi workshops were in high demand, need to run them more often. Space was too small for the amount of people and projects we had. We had twice as much food as we needed. Need a dedicated runner for food, and a dedicated raffle person. Starting Every 2nd Saturday at 2pm Arduino classes hosted by Rick, to take the place of the now defunct SALUG meetings Dana brought in the controller for the new Shapeoko.
