6:20 Brad nominates himself to put a URL on back rooms white board.


Did it.  Done.  Requisitioned Nathan to draw a gerbil.  It was done, close enough.  A shrunken URL exists.  I am reporting to the endless internet what was written on a whiteboard in the back of a game store.  Somehow my life has meaning.  You people who aren't reading this better appreciate the effort.


Also, goddamn, how did we not create the position of secretary and force Eli into bondage for that position forever?




Seriously though, that was pretty much accurate, except it left out all the parts of Eli (the eldest) being a fool, which is totally the prerogative of the fool who records history.


I mean honestly, we couldn't hope for better note taking than that.  Good job, Eli (you fool).

I congratulate and encourage all you to keep organizing.  As a person who was there when OF began it is tough and really hard to organize the cats, but the results are worth it in the end (or will be when we see what the end looks like :ph34r: ).  Keep up the good work and again if you guys ever want some advice or just a nice slap on the ass, the OF senate is always around and willing to help out.  


Good work!!

This is probably the most disgustingly written piece of rot garbage that I have ever had the displeasure to read.


Calm down just kidding. Don't get your skid marked underwear in a bunch. Eli awesomely written well done. I also second Eli the Elder as secretary. However in the famous words of a one Han Solo, "Don't get cocky kid". Those December minutes better be equally fascinating to read.


Too bad I couldn't be there guys, phoenix blows per usual. It is nice to see the club take some action and make some change. Lets keep it up.
