August 2022 – Meeting Minutes
Slack is imposing new limits of only 30 days of history for using it’s service for free. We discussed whether or not to leave slack and return to email as our single platform for online communications. Additionally we discussed possible alternatives such as discord, but with no decisions.
Brew In at More Beer
We discussed possibilities of moving our proposed dates for a Brew In from a Saturday in August to sometime in September in light that most people are not going to NCHF. We also need to get our flier re-posted at the More Beer in Los Altos, and perhaps consider wider online advertising (Facebook, Reddit?)
We discussed with the club and it looks like Worts will not be making an appearance at NCHF in 2022. Hoping that we can make a re-appearance in 2023!
We discussed with Rob the potential of having our annual Xmas part at Clandestine and he said it would be ok, but we should get our plans in early. We’re targeting late-afternoon to evening on a Saturday.
What do we want our Club to do next year?
We discussed some things we want to see the club do more next year, such as outings to SF, or via Caltrain or even by bicycle.
