I thought since this last week was a little crazy, and also, it’s Bernie’s last week, the BotW (the one with prizes) will go on hiatus out of respect. However, you are free to make guesses in the half hour left before the meeting…agenda is here.
Also, last week’s HANDS DOWN winner is Gemma, with the ambulance contract. Gemma, if you want to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss your prize, please do so! By the way, I do have the video…it’s in a server somewhere and it has refused to download properly. I still want to do an edit of last week’s BotW, because it was epic.
I’ve included the new agenda here in case you need it, as well.
