I’ll start off my thanking everyone who attended the cause leader meeting last night as it was very productive and we bought up some really good points that need further discussing. We also solved (well hopefully!) a number of problems. Special thanks to @Pommygirl for running it.

Tagging some of the people that I can recall who were there: @Pommygirl, @nogthree, (me @jabelone), @crofty, @Siridar, @devians, @ian.kerr.redmond, @reatek and @Boo.


thank you very much for all this work you are doing to make it easy for all of us.

Epic amount of work bro. Congrats on your efforts :blush:

Many thanks to those who helped at the Signage Working Bee… including @Pommygirl for organising the event.

I just remembered- Thank you to @merseyless for giving tours so often lately, the week before last a new member specifically mentioned the awesome tour as a reason why he joined! 100% effective work :smiley:

Thankyou to John O’Donnell, who made the Craftpunk 3 phase to normal power supply in Craftpunk, we can now look forward to getting much more use out of the room! :smiley:

I’m not going to try naming names because I’m positive I’ll forget more people than I’ll remember, but thank you to everyone who’s been involved with helping out in the mad dash this past two weeks as the government has continuously been changing its covid-19 response with very little notice. This Wednesday was one of the busiest Wednesdays I’ve seen in a while, heh!
