  • There will be a Craft Punk meeting after the general meeting
  • Due to limitations with Slack, we are moving our instant messaging to Discord; please use this as we will be discontinuing the Slack page.
  • There have been cans removed from the store room, this is entirely unacceptable behaviour as it impacts directly on the members.
  • There will be a Cosplay and Craft meet on the 27th of January.
  • $49,000 in the account, of which we can spend $5000
  • Plywood sheets for Speakers ($260) - we are seeking to construct boxes for the speakers that are currently sitting in the wood shop mezzanine, as once they are built they can be sold for a decent profit, to this end a budget of $260 for 4x 18mm plywood sheets is sought initially so we can construct a set of speakers to display for speaker construction classes; 0 opposed, 0 abstained, motion passed.
  • Ladders ($700) - we are looking for various ladders, in particular for use in the wood shop but can be used for other works in and around the Space; 0 opposed, 0 abstained, motion passed.
  • Bandsaw (approx. $3000) - we are seeking a larger bandsaw for the woodshop, and are currently in discussions with the manufacturer regarding other tooling that we can obtain for a 10% discount; this can be used for other works, and would assist with attraction of new members; 4 opposed, 6 abstained, motion passed.
  • Key Trackers ($200) - we have had issues where site keys have disappeared in cars, so we are looking to purchase key trackers so we can determine where the site keys are located; these can be tracked via Bluetooth; 0 opposed, 0 abstained, motion passed.
