Nix; graham wants to step down as co-ordinator. nix will take this up reluctantly for a month. advises there are no bikes available atm. is not too happy about the face that EVS people get bikes for free.
Is advised that this is a legal obligation.
i betcha we can get a foldy trestle table from EUS maybe one of the ones we use for the zine fair?
Not sure what this 'legal obligation' is...can someone explain???
But we need to do this properly. Some the the EVS don't have lights yet, which is very highly dangerous. not to mention lack of helmets. If the Forest says it will be doing this, It needs to get it sorted now and properly, not in the usual lazy way. One EVS has already had a (thankfully) small accident. Please, no more.
under EVS program host organization has to provide volunteers by local transportation,
in this case the transport for EVS is bike.
the phrase "legal obligation" means nothing special

it is not completely unsafe to cycle at night with no lights. That is a damned lie. It is slightly more unsafe
but you can get run over by a lorry in broad day-light wearing a high-viz vest.
but bikes has repeatedly proven in the past to be a bottomless waste of time and money if we want it to be...

for sure we dont want any accidents or anything, but bikes has repeatedly proven in the past to be a bottomless waste of time and money if we want it to be...
