Treasurer's Report

Here is the financial summary spreadsheet for July 2014: File:HacDC Financials 2014 07.pdf. We gained Ed O'Brien as a new member and regained founder Andrew Righter (Q). We lost William Gibb, Rob Ryan-Silva, and David Pietrocola. We have 43 dues-paying members in good standing, 7 dues-waived members, and 4 members who are behind on dues.

Project Awesome

Here is the Project Awesome spreadsheet for July: File:HacDC PA Projects-2014 07.pdf. We continue to have to dip into savings to pay our rent, so no dividend this month. :(

No news. Had to take personal time off. Hope to pick up in the Fall.


Bought some screws for our optical table. More importantly, we are now down to a $849.12 balance. As before, this continued loss of funding is undesirable and somewhat unexpected given recent publicity campaigns.


Considering a chop saw, still not sure what to buy.


Member Reports


Beginning work on the optical table, example 3D printed mounting hardware in the basement. Have also repaired one and partially reassembled one of Dan Barlow's projectors, planning to deploy the components on the optical table.


Platform design complete, awaiting construction.

Mirage proposes the following amendment to the Standing Rules:

Effective immediately, quorum is set to ten members. Henceforth, when quorum is not met two months in a row, the number of members required to meet quorum shall be reduced to the greatest number present in any of those months minus one.

Note that amendments to the standing rules require a 2/3 majority vote of a quorum of members.

Authorize Dan Barlow to spend available Project Laser funds for repairs, replacement parts, and upgrades.
