Reading of Minutes
At the time, it was believed that the reading of the minutes was waived, in
favour of LLG Members as the canonical listt, by unanimous consent, but

mention could have been objected to and was not, so we're calling it good.

as well. I apologize for that.
Please let me know if you have any questions!

The main account balances at $5,664.41
The paypal account balances at $325.34
We lost $10 due to me being late this quarter; I'd pay it out of

entirely out of the PayPal account; we did not need to touch the
main account for that at all.
Accepted by acclamation.
BPFK Report and Secretary Report
Neither the secretary nor the BPFK jatna (who take a shower with
