I am in Votey all day today. Give me a buzz if you want to meet up to
go over the housing design. That goes for anyone else that is
interested in seeing the sorts of considerations that go into

> Hey All,
> To those that made the meeting Thurs., you have a pretty good idea of
> where we stand right now. To those that couldn't make it, it's not a
> huge deal, and there wasn't a whole lot you missed. First off, I'd like
> some input as to what time would work better for everyone as far as
> weekly meetings go. With a lot going on this semester, it'd be best to
> try and met regularly. Does Tuesday at 645-7ish work for more people?
> Lets get some feedback on this. I'm also available for Weds at a later
> time, at about 745 if this works.
> Now is the time when tasks get broken up among the team and things are
> delegated out. Remember, we're not a hard core club and hours are to be
> logged, etc. etc. but it is important that for the success of the team
> that if you step up and want to try something, that you follow through,
> ask for help, or simply admit that you cant complete it. I'd rather
> have everyone try and fail something, than not try at all. I guess I'd
> actually rather have everyone succeed, but you see the point.
> Based on the responses of those who were at the meeting, here's a rough
> list of to-dos, with a name attached. If you don't think you can follow
> through, let me know, and we will figure something out. Any questions,
> just email me.
> Team tasks:
> Marcus: grab some Montreal hotel info. You know the site, so check up
> on costs, and lets chat about what nights we should stay there, and
> what nights we should camp out. Also, can you source the material used
> for flotation, and the HDPE skid plate mat'l. Receipts are available in
> the shop, we can go over this.
> Ben: firewall mat'l. Check what we have in the shop (might be a big
> sheet along the back wall) and how much another sheet would be at Queen
> City. Also, investigate body panel mat'ls and gearbox mat'l - talk to
> Thatcher about gearbox mat'l - he might be able to get it and a
> discount too???
> Thatcher (and others who might be interested)- Budget is due Feb 1st.
> Lets sit down and do this sometime soon. It should take a few hours but
> go pretty smoothly. Perhaps Monday since we have it off?
> Bleach: Lets go over some design stuff this weekend and finalize it.
> We're close, so at this point its the bugs we gotta work out.
> Owen: I've attached last year's design report and the format that SAE
> recommends. If you could just get familiar with it so that when we go
> to do this years, you have a better understanding. I'm not asking you
> to memorize all the mat'l in it, as it's going to change anyways, just
> what its all about and some of the gimmicks they like to hear about.
> Mike Karpeles - Shoot me an email if you have some time to do some
> website updates. I'd like to have the news, about, and sponsorship
> pages updated a bit. Will discuss together.
> Mike Strand - It is not the most crucial thing at this point, and I'm
> sure you need more footage, but have you made any progress with the
> team video? Let me know if you'd like some of last year's footage and I
> can get you a bunch of it.
> Dom. I will have some tshirt info for you. Sorry to everyone about the
> delay with the shirts. Other things have cropped up and it took the
> back burner for a while.
> To everyone else. Once Floyd is back to work, fabrication will be
> picking up again. This means that you should check in with someone on
> the team to see that we are working and come in to help out. I can say
> that Fridays are going to be a big build day, as are Weds afternoons
> and some other blocks here and there during the week.
> One last thing. If you are on the listserv and don't want to be, or
> aren't really into the team, whatever, there are instructions here on
> how to remove yourself. In the next coming week or so I'm going to
> request a sort of team member list in which case if you don't give me
> your name, I'll be removing the name from the list. I'm sorry if it
> sounds harsh, but theres 33 people on the listserv. About 2/3 are names
> I don't recognize and names that haven't been around much. Lets save
> the bandwidth for other people to enjoy. Don't worry, there will be
> ample warning about this.
> Good luck with everything and I hope the semester is off to a good
> start. Again, lets get some feedback going on a better meeting time so
> we can plan do start that this week.
> Have a great weekend.
