 +    * Report from Makerfaire:
 +      * Calgary Makerfaire was a great success. Lots of people from Saskatchewan there.
 +      * Al wants people to commit to helping at the next Makerfaire. James volunteered. Al is requesting group funds for 2-3 banners. Protospace will accept on our behalf anything we ship down.
 +      * In Calgary, building owner doesn'​t have to pay land tax if leasing to a non-profit. Something to look into here.
 +      * Protospace also did a periodic pledge drive asking for a small donation from members to add to a fund for future tools and projects.
 +      * Makerfaire has offered some funding if we bring a combat robotics event. Al requested space, power, etc. We'll look at either bringing our own arena or getting Protospace to build their own.
 +      * Could probably raffle off MAME cabinets. There was lots of interest in the Nanocade.
 +      * Can also get sponsorship for projects. Could also consider corporate sponsorship.
 +      * Next Western Canadian Robot Games will be at the next Calgary Makerfaire.
 +    * Regina has asked us about participating in IGNITE! October 10-11.
 +    * SaskExpo Comic Convention is September 20-21. Do we want to do anything there? We would have to pay for a booth ($195 for non-profit). $45 for a personal pass at the door. Probably too late to do something this year, but maybe next year.
 +    * Sheila is launching her Kickstarter for her action figure in 2 weeks!
