meeting needed - building army!!

Postby Shannon » Mon Mar 05, 2007 11:09 am

It is looking like we will have 19 volunteers next week, willing to work hard on building improvements for 3-4 days. We need to have a meeting to discuss what we want them to do, and if we should close.

How about tomorrow, Tuesday March 5, at 11am??

Maybe it could work? But it will be a kaleidoscopic blend of mysterious shadows and rainbow hued-dreams seen through compassionate tears.

yes good idea,

can, any other building peoples come, ie graeme, bill, ana?

we will also need to buy more tools to make this worthwhile, drills etc. (are they bringing any of their own tools?)

it would be good to liase with them before their arrival, and to establish how good they are..

Graeme and Ana work during the day. Should we make the meeting in the evening instead?

As far as I know, we need to provide tools. We have a contact with Kate, but maybe we can get directly in touch with them?

Right - let's just do it at 11am. We'll have another to coordinate more, if need be. I'm calling Kate now.

Okay have a good one.
I can't make it.
So go through the list and prioritise what can be done in the short time we've got to prepare and in 4 days work (daytimes only remember - they won't be working through the night I'm guessing)
Also if this project goes well it seems there could be other opportuniites in the future for these guys (or others) to come back. So no need to do too much too quickly.
Finally - it might rain so if the outside is going to be on the agenda then have a back up plan too. :wink:

Hey troops. I'm ready to start publicising the darkroom more broadly, but I feel uncomfortable doing so until punters no longer have to walk the gauntlet of bikes and buckets tipping over onto them. Maybe you could discuss what really needs to be in there and we could all gradually clear some of it over the building days? I would be grateful.

I would suggest that the bicycle does not need to be in there, for starters.

There were two, last time I checked. Who do they belong to? Because I could use a new bike...

Surely they don't get used much in that room? When was the last time they were used? Would be good for them to get used...

that bike needs attention. two flatties etc....clearly its not being used.....is there anything written or advertised anywhere as volly bikes?...i think we should keep it locked up to the banisters upstairs, in my view thats a prime place for bikes to be kept.....also most of those paints are empty/solid....i feel like i could do some sort of ordering that space but not alone.....maybe if we do a back of office room tidy and workshop tidy simultaniously we could use both spaces better? what about that wierd room with no entry under he stairs can we use that?

peas etc.

The monster bike builder won't want anything to do with the suspension frame piece of junk. we should lose that at least. I say it's Shannon's choice.

bill, you'll have to work in the kitchen to find out what lurks under the stairs (i'll just say it's occupied). How about the old display fridge glass? is it okay if we find it a place in the garden?

I've taken the plane blade and a chisel away for sharpening. be back on the weekend inshallah.

If the kitchen is going to be on limited operation during some of the building, perhaps some vollies could help out with workshop tidy?

Also, I was talking to Emily and she would like to get the balconies cleaned up, so they can be better utilised for storage, etc. Maybe EUS will want to throw in on a skip, and we can use some of the people-power to do that job?

having this workforce clean the balconies is not an option, as they do not know what is what etc..

I think most of the papers are in the office upstairs, not the balconies. Any other papers could be moved into that office? Also, I don't think Emily was talking about us doing it on her own. She suggested a group of us and a group of volunteers she would get together.

If we think it'll be possible to do this next week, I'll get back in touch with her and see what we can work out.

That should have said a group of us and a group of eus volunteers.

to clarify further: i'm not talking about the eus papers bits - i think all that stuff is heaped by the windows on the left hand balcony, right? i'm more interested in clearing the general junk, broken tables and plastic boxes, items of baby clothing and so forth, which is cluttering the floor area. on the organ balcony there is a bunch of stuff which actually belongs to people, and clearing that isn't an option without their okay. i don't really think this is something that can be coordinated within the next week, not least because i don't have a ready army of volunteers to contribute.

i'm not harbouring a dream of making the balconies usable as a seating area, by the way, i'd just like them to be a bit more secure as a storage area. if the hall's going to get heavy use during the festival i think it'd be a good idea to have the upstairs cleared.

but i'm in no rush. we can go in on that skip next month or the month after.
