Happy penultimate outreach meeting!
  • No big events left, let's work on getting some merch ideas finalized
Made in Camp
  • Presence in the parking lot helped people get engaged in the activities
  • We should do more stuff for Made in Camp in the parking lot in the future
  • Is there anything that we could do to help advertise Made in Camp?
    • Push more information to the socials
    • Use some of the Wavepool provided social assets
    • Historically, Wavepool has been not amazing at promoting the event, and this year seems to be a repeat of history
    • Presenting marketing as cross-promotion would help Wavepool and also our attendance
  • The people who we did get did have a great engagement with the Hive, though
  • Can we look into a slightly shorter waiver to fill out for tours? Is that legally possible?
    • Look into iterating over that when we do digital forms with Tendenci
  • Parade interest meeting was chaotic on Blink's part
  • Parade itself went very well
    • In the future, we could have our banner in the front to make sure that we're representing the Hive correctly
    • The news butchered the read and called us a "school", but whatever...
  • Small ideas for next year
    • For an installation:
      • LED cube
      • Giant game of Pong
      • Huge (computer) light keyboard
      • Wall of eyes that tracks you as you pass
      • More fun, less corporate shit!
    • For a parade idea:
      • LED wire bees for everyone to walk with, giant beehive
  • Post-parade survey
    • Half the questions were promoting Ish really, which was weird feeling
Learn to Solder
  • Waivers were a pain in the ass to fill out, especially when parents had multiple children
    • Could be sorted with the online Tendenci forms
  • Do we need an age limit for Learn to Solder?
    • Three things we should check for:
      • Do they understand what we're telling them?
      • Are they listening to instructions?
      • Can they communicate affirmations of your instruction?
  • Hooray for no injuries!
    • Let's make sure that we bring a burn first aid kit next time, just in case
  • Future Learn to Solder events
    • Please, let's re-establish the connection with Union Terminal
  • BUCKET CLEANOUT is in order for Learn to Solder

Merch (link in bio)

  • Deal with DIY Printing has fallen through
  • Looking into Made-to-order sites like Big Cartel, Redbubble, Zazzle -- Jack
  • Kostas--email Camp Washington Printing Company to see about pricing and stuff
