[9:06pm] Lulu: No Kendra... [9:06pm] Lulu: OK to enlist Sarah? [9:06pm] srevilak: Lulu: sure [9:06pm] Lulu: Also, the light photo guy has not got back to me.

[9:08pm] Lulu: We need to write a proposal. I will start it and invite folks to edit it. [9:08pm] Lulu: For the Cap group. [9:08pm] jokeefe: k [9:09pm] Lulu: If we have Chance, Cap, Mark and Light photo guy, I think that will cover it. [9:09pm] Lulu: I will ask Sarah C if we can use the Library for the photos [9:09pm] Lulu: BUT [9:09pm] Lulu: Jason and I are doing NOTHING Pirate this weekend except collecting sigs. [9:10pm] jokeefe: What about the other bands who were interested such as the one Kendra recommended? [9:10pm] jokeefe: a good idea [9:10pm] Lulu: I will update the Berklee post [9:10pm] Lulu: with our new date. [9:10pm] Lulu: And tell the acts we like about the change. They may have other bookings [9:10pm] jokeefe: could just email the folks who contacted us [9:11pm] jokeefe: ok, thanks [9:11pm] Lulu: I'll do both if I can find the time. [9:11pm] Lulu: Certainly after the weekend. [9:11pm] jokeefe: Monday? [9:11pm] jokeefe: I can email the bands if you want [9:11pm] Lulu: Duh [9:12pm] Lulu: COULD YOU?

[9:13pm] jokeefe: Next - Events to organize? - Stop TTIP Protest [9:13pm] srevilak: I like the idea of doing protest + campaigning [9:13pm] jokeefe: I recommend against this since we may still have to gather sigs and there is much to do [9:14pm] Lulu: Jason and I are in total agreement: Getting the kids on the ballot has to be priority #1 [9:14pm] srevilak: In that case, could use TTIP as a talking point while signature gathering [9:15pm] jokeefe: of course [9:15pm] jokeefe: agreed to not do it? [9:15pm] srevilak: agreed [9:15pm] jokeefe: or I should say not organize it?

[9:50pm] jokeefe: from elections division? [9:50pm] Joe: It would probably be easier for me to just get them since I think Ashland is a midpoint for us [9:50pm] Lulu_: Elec div has branches [9:50pm] noe: OK [9:50pm] Lulu_: One is at Ashland town clerk. [9:51pm] Lulu_: Her name is Tara M. Ward. [9:51pm] Lulu_: She's lovely and helpful [9:52pm] srevilak: Didn't realize Bellingham was right on RI border https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellingham,_Massachusetts [9:53pm] Lulu_: Well the rest of our year will be greatly affected by whether or not we get you kids on the ballot. [9:53pm] Lulu_: Yes but Bellingham is LONG [9:53pm] noe: I think we can do it! [9:53pm] Lulu_: i do too! [9:53pm] noe: Here in Somerville, we've been sticking to patrolling the Squares on the weekends. [9:53pm] noe: I've gotten friends and family to take sheets around, but I've also been asking coworkers who live in the area. [9:54pm] Joe: yeah bellingham is on the RI border and acts as a hub of the surrounding towns since we are off of 495 [9:54pm] Joe: Bellingham is also a very long town and not very wide [9:54pm] Joe: I think we touch like 6-7 towns [9:55pm] noe: Joe: Do you think a team of 6 could do the whole area door-to-door in about four days? [9:55pm] noe: (by do, I mean, ask for signatures) [9:55pm] Lulu_: OH! [9:55pm] Joe: That's a good question [9:55pm] Lulu_: I am friends with a cop who lives in Blackstone. [9:55pm] Lulu_: He is going to sign [9:56pm] Lulu_: I will see him Sunday [9:56pm] Lulu_: And I *think* he will vouch for us in his neighborhood, though he hasn't replied yet. [9:56pm] Joe: I think we could cover the majority of bellingham [9:56pm] noe: I think teams of two are best at keeping volunteers motivated and not arm-twisty with too many items [9:56pm] jokeefe: srevilak, how long would it take you to get CiviCRM up on our site? [9:56pm] jokeefe: agreed, noe [9:56pm] srevilak: jokeefe: depends on what you've got in mind as a use case [9:57pm] srevilak: we can do events, mailing campaigns, etc [9:57pm] Lulu_: Funny story, the cop asked me if he could sign on line... Um no... we still do these things the 18th century way... [9:57pm] srevilak: pick a use case and I will work on it [9:57pm] jokeefe: all [9:58pm] jokeefe: events and mailing campaigns and sign up sheets are probably the big ones [9:58pm] Lulu_: Oh we need to vote on a thing: [9:58pm] srevilak: jokeefe: ok, will start with events [9:58pm] Joe: I can look at a map and easily show people where to go. Bellingham is kind of split into little sections [9:58pm] Lulu_: I offered MPP to be the transeree of a domain name the USPP wants [9:58pm] jokeefe: well, if we get the sign up done, we can use for bit coin donations [9:59pm] Lulu_: I changed the subject because we are reaching time [9:59pm] Joe: I was thinking of doing an event at the common on the weekend where I can answer peoples questions and have people sign the papers. Not sure how good of an idea that is [9:59pm] Lulu_: There needs to be an event AT the common in these small bucolic towns [9:59pm] jokeefe: anything to get attention, but the aim is to get signatures the fastest way possible [9:59pm] Joe: You just taught me the word bucolic [9:59pm] jokeefe: well … almost anything [10:00pm] noe: Joe: I think that sounds like a good idea, but may want signage or other volunteers to siphon people to you [10:00pm] jokeefe: ++ [10:00pm] Lulu_: So OK can I have a few minutes for a vote on the domain issue? [10:00pm] Joe: Thanks noe, thats a good idea [10:00pm] srevilak: For reference on Lulu_'s issue, see https://uspirates.org/wiki/PNC_3/26/14, around 21:44 [10:00pm] Lulu_: TY srevilak [10:01pm] srevilak: Though I assume they're talking about pirate-party.us, as opposed to pirapte-party.us [10:01pm] Lulu_: lol [10:02pm] Lulu_: Chris sheats has the domain now, willing to transfer. [10:02pm] jokeefe: not sure if any expenses for the domain are MAPP expenses per OCPF since it isn't Mass. Pirate Party [10:02pm] jokeefe: srevilak [10:02pm] jokeefe: ? [10:02pm] srevilak: If anything else, I think this would be in-kind to USPP [10:03pm] Lulu_: "I'd be happy to work with you to get pirapte-party.us transferred to a Pirate Party organization that is legally recognized in any US state that works with the PNC. Or is the PNC a legal org again? Please let me know." [10:03pm] Lulu_: So can I go ahead with the transfer? [10:03pm] jokeefe: Well, I guess it could be done in trust or some such. [10:03pm] jokeefe: sure, lets get that settled. [10:03pm] Lulu_: There should be no cost. LAB says it's paid for until 2020 [10:04pm] jokeefe: there is always a cost to xfr, I believe, but it is small [10:04pm] Lulu_: (I think that's what she said) [10:04pm] Lulu_: I'll pay it. [10:04pm] jokeefe: easy peasy [10:04pm] Lulu_: lemon squeezy [10:04pm] jokeefe: lol [10:04pm] Lulu_: lol [10:05pm] Lulu_: So we are past time [10:05pm] srevilak: Motion to adjourn [10:06pm] Lulu_: 2nd [10:06pm] Kendra: nite all, keep up the good work [10:06pm] Lulu_: Good meeting ppl thank you for attending [10:06pm] Kendra left the chat room.
