Was donated to the space. [who donated this?]

Greg wants to re-do th donation sheet. The current one is confusing.

Can this be combined with the donation receipt?

Woodshop Rules

There were some proposals for woodshop rules.

The warden set the rules for the zone. Does the board need to approve this?

What are the current standing rules? Discussion about if it is in the standing rules that the warden can set the rules for their zone.

The only rule that is under question is the one where the tag of woodshop is put on an item that is reserved for group projects.

Board has final say in everything?

Greg's Rules will go into effect because he wants them to and he is the warden. He will publish to the list.

Chris allington – we talked to some lawyers asking for advice on our situation regarding liability and what exactly is the best for our situation.

Dave Scholl is requesting ladders for the woodshop for safety. The proposal is reviewed

Personal liability for the board members and officers. So what happens when someone comes in and gets hurt? They are going to look for people to sue and this is going to be where they will go.

We need to look into liability insurance for board members—we might be covered because ewe are a corporation with a board of directors. Ted will contact insurance company about this.

Justin Triplett will offer his services for lawyer services!
