Topics and Agenda for upcoming meeting

A former member
Hi All!

In addition to discussion of Youtube movie Zeitgeist (2011), we agreed to add some hands-on demos as well.



Chad offered to do a number of demonstrations that many of you are most interested in.

Here are the responses from the group in order of popularity.

Windmill

Working solar

fire starting options

mylar packing system

hobo stove



Here are my thoughts: Chad indicated that the windmill would take 1 hour to set up and 1 hour to bring down. It's dark outside before you guys even walk through the door at 7pm so

a) Chad would have to come at 6pm to set up and

b) Chad would have to take it down in the dark and

c) no one would be able to see it since it's dark already when you get here.



For the comfort and convenience of Chad as well as what best benefits the group, I would like Chad to demo the windmill when we have longer days again.



In the meantime, let's see how many demos we can see of the other items. We can start with the working solar and work our way down the list. As Chad demos each item, we can incorporate question and answer time for knowledge sharing.



Thanks to all of you who responded and if anyone else has anything else to share, bring it on! Information is power for all of us!



See you in 2 weeks!
