California Pirate Pary is interested in joining the US Pirate Party. Looks like they've been busy the last few months. We will sponsor their application to the PNC.

March for science. Takes place Saturday, April 22nd, from 13:00 - 16:00. This will be a stationary event (no marching). We'll meet up behind the visitor's center on Boston Common, at 14:00. Look for the banner.

PirateCon. Logistics. Press release is one. Flyers are in progress. Steve will work on code of conduct. Regarding streaming: we got a good signal at CCB during our walk-through. Plan B would have us using CCB's wireless. Plan C is to stream audio-only (no video).

        event.  No march
21:22 < jokeefe> yes

21:23 < jokeefe> works for me
21:26 < srevilak> I don't see details re: where on the common the various
        events will take place
21:26 < srevilak> With event going from 13:00 - 16:00, should we plan
        to meet up at 13:00?
21:26 < srevilak> Or a different time?

21:32 < jokeefe> ok

21:35 < jokeefe> press release is done. will email them out
21:36 < moses> great
21:38 < jokeefe> Outreach - have someone making flyers
21:38 < jokeefe> Piratecon code of conduct?
21:39 < srevilak> I can take a first draft later this week.
        HarambeForever - will touch base w/you via email
21:39 < jokeefe> thanks
21:39 < moses> we discussed this last week no?
21:39 < HarambeForever> it's okay i don't have to third wheel you,
21:40 < HarambeForever> if you want my help i am happy to, but otherwise
        i'm happy not to
21:40 < HarambeForever> :D
21:41 < jokeefe> Will send https://piratenpad.de/p/MAPPPirateCon2017
        to volunteers
21:41 < srevilak> HarambeForever: ok
21:43 < srevilak> moses: yes.  Hasn't been written yet, though
21:45 < jokeefe> Alternate plans for streaming bandwidth?
21:45 < srevilak> I don't think we're going to need them
21:46 < srevilak> Got a decent signal during walk through.  If that
        doesn't work, we have CCB's wireless.  Plan C is audio-only streaming
21:47 < srevilak> Unless there are other ideas
21:47 < jokeefe> ok
