lottery west

  • Committee received writeup that Skot did, eg recovery of costs, free community training etc
  • Daniel trying to convince GNU cash to produce numbers that we like that don't make us look like we're making a loss. Will resort to manual treasurer’s report.

City of Stirling

  • Skot spoke with Chris AV who was under the impression that Anton was handling something.. Chris will contact again and report back with what we should be doing.

  • Jenna look at wiki and drop box, suggest edits and stuff.

Blazing Swan

  • Burning man crew have been meeting here, $150 in drinks etc last time.. second meeting didn't go so well for the space because of no one explaining the donations and drinks properly.. mainly because of one person.
  • Their agm will have to be here.
  • Skot to clarify usage fees with them


  • worth it?? Could go either way!
  • Peter D talked to Peter Hanay.. looks like it's under control
  • Brendan wary of some activity of their website.
  • If it's like hope or ccc, then AMAZING
  • but also Brett and Jenna have come back with unpleasant stories from Canberra hackerspace..
  • Peter D will check it out.

Possible event

  • Peter D was contacted by someone into open source software, may want to hold a talk, will sort out usage fees, could make up money on the bar. Sounds perfectly relevant.


  • Working! Sort of.. babysit it! Could possibly get stuck on the heating cycle, boil its contents. Washing machine next!


  • No proper coffee machine! Nothing that makes us look like we should have a good kitchen. Skot please let that guy down.
  • Alternative: assemble a fleet of bicycles and hook up with the local coffee shops! Possibly offer lasercutting etc


  • Anton needs to be paid for the amp before we start buying more things
  • Steeple fund to get the sound system up to scratch..
  • Maintenence requires money in the system.. Brendan says wait,
  • Skot says capitalise now to bring the members now so that we will have money later.
  • Jason says put the steeple fund in front of the people who come in and enjoy the sound system that we have.


  • Skot spoke to instant waste, they will monitor the weight.

We should be aware that heavy stuff can hurt our moneys.


  • Long-term equipment storage outside AV office needs to be addressed.

membership fee structure

  • Condense to 2 levels, push the casual payments for students.
  • Many other spaces have a probationary period.
  • Worth considering as we introduce laser cutter.
  • City of Stirling: Skot has been meaning to speak with the arts officer who got the men's shed up and running.
  • Steven Dickie: Jenna to share the emails with Skot and Sam G.
  • UCC: Jenna look at wiki and drop box, suggest edits and stuff.
