In attendence were Board President and Director Jim Sheehan, Board members John Dido and John Mikolich, members Hollis Geary and Kevin Senich and Assistant Director Peter Garver

Discussed recent break-in of project shed, and attempted break-in of shop: Jim moved that we approve expenditure of <$300 for web camera and motion-sensor/floodlight to monitor yard activity. John seconded, will consult with friend Brian D. on equipment choices. Passed unanimously.

Peter prepared a grantseeking map? to outline the document we are working from (available to board members at GrantIdeas) for discussion. Relavent discussions included:

On-site programs:
Fix-a-thon grant: This is a very popular, useful and educational program, a grant would improve our ability to ensure its expansion (and get better food!)

Bikes Overseas: a shipping container in the yard for for these would reduce attractiveness to thieves, but not eliminate scrap pile, which is still an attraction.

Retail training is needed for vols.
Fix-a-thon will be only open for class grads. in 07.

Off-site programs will include Rec Ctr EAB (for new bikes)or G(et)AB, for less work to get a used bike... Shop Relations is needed for several reasons.
