December 30 Meeting Notes

Here are the notes for the core meeting on December 30th.


Here is who showed up for this meeting: Scott, Owen, Ryan, Ed, Gina


Ten Commandments

Owen introduced a shop policy that seems to mostly work for everyone. To be printed out and posted in the shop and online.

Storing Project Bikes

We discussed the potential for storing project bikes at the shop while they are being worked on. We talked about potentially charging storage or rental fees. We decided that we will not allow storing bikes right now. We need to concentrate on getting the shop open and functional again. Then we will revisit the idea of storing projects.


Here are the remaining tasks that need to be completed prior to the Open House.
