Yes, it is definitely too soon to start designing sugar refiners.  But  
we still have some pretty basic "pre-design" questions. Like, who is
going to be involved in this project? How are we going to meet and
communicate with each other? Should we create a CEMS account? Use
google docs? What exactly do we cumulatively know? What on/off
campus resources are available to guide us?

I, for one, would VERY much like to be involved in this project.
However, I am still a fresh member to our club, and feel the need to
officially meet and talk with those I hope to work with.

My opinion is that established, regular design meetings, separate from
club business meetings, is necessary. I think it is also important
for us, as a group, to work out what our questions are.

Thanks,

Ezra
