      Warehouse-- $300/mo; $450 accrued in "sweat equity"; standard 6-month
      renewable lease; use of warehouse space for public events (where tickets are
      sold) would require insurance fee; Steve will sign the lease if we decide to

      Motion to limit comments to 2 minutes per turn for this discussion-- passes.

      Motion to vote on warehouse.

      consecutive general
      meetings "defunct." Motion to table above motion until the next meeting--

      announcements-- passes.
