agenda: actions in red
1. we agreed this would be better. it is set up now, it is not perfect, but it is workable everyone must sign up and start playing with it, by doing pretend bookings.
we agreed to stick with the phone system until there is a very clear page on the website explaining how to book cave time..chris will write this and post it here for discussion
2. chris to get a soundproofing quote from a pro, and find out what they would do.
3. kev to call jake and get him to uplift his drum kit
4. bass amp, one of the wharfedales and one of the mackies all need repaired pete to get them done and taken to soundcontrol. we will then consider upgrading the bass amp, because it always breaks.
5. concern over the price increases was discussed, we decided to go with it and review it in 6 months. kev will make a poster expaining the reason for the price increases
6. pete has identified the following regular responsibilites, which we should divide up every meeting:
b. sorting bookings out
c. sorting the money/accounting out
e. emergency phone contact
we agreed this will be much easier to divide up when the online booking system is in place.
7. we discussed various ideas for booking rules such as 'no more than 12 hours of prime time per month' etc. but failed to get it totally nailed... however mark and andrew will write a set of simple proposed rules and post it in the cave forum for our discussion
The next meeting is 6pm Friday 2nd February
Maybe it could work? But it will be a kaleidoscopic blend of mysterious shadows and rainbow hued-dreams seen through compassionate tears.
