Attending: Stephen Drane, Lorraine McDonald, Rachel Grimmer, Miriam Staples, Steve Roylance, Helen Howard, Judith Gray, Genevieve Cody, Heather Fritz-Hammond, Julia Jamieson

Meeting opened 8:00 pm
Storage - Rate for current storage has increased to $90 per month. We’re paying $515 for six months (5% discount)
Another alternate option in Pascoe Vale – Lorraine to investigate
Proposed enclosure in the Armoury would have a problem with damp; not an appealing option.
Motion: To continue looking for alternate storage solutions
Motioned: Heather Fritz-Hammond Seconded: Miriam Staples CWD
Business cards – Defer to next month.
Winterfeast - 23rd June is unavailable, moved to 30th June instead (same site). Currently testing menus. Antoinette Stryke is autocrat, Heather Fritz-Hammond head cook.
Motion: To go ahead with the new date.
Motioned: Genevieve Cody Seconded: Miriam Staples CWD
Armoury - Using combo padlocks may pose a security risk (located next to a school, bored kids may try to crack code).
Motion: To stay with keys for securing the Armoury
Motioned: Heather Fritz-Hammond Seconded: Steve Roylance CWD
Rose & Unicorn - Proposed date 7th October. Logistics issues, timing issues (soon after GSG), tyranny of distance. May be able to borrow Baronial gear, but Monthly Bash is the next day – autocrat could send us a wishlist and we will see.
Motion: To decline the event as being logistically unviable
Motioned: Heather Fritz-Hammond Seconded: Judith Gray
