      would receive the sponsorship - proposal agreed to, details will follow

     at the event tonight

     prepaying for things where possible later this year (OLF & NMGLF are two
     good targets)

     Boxes, great idea - any volunteers?

   - StabbyMc reports that the Fedora pens have been ordered and should arrive
     either this week or next - thanks StabbyMc

   - inode0 reports some issues with the fathead idea, complicated agreement
     required that inode0 wasn't comfortable with - if anyone else would like
     to tackle that inode0 will help them, all art is ready (thank you mizmo)

I would again like to thank all the participants, especially the new
