The annual membership meeting for Metro Seattle Gamers was held on November 18th. The general manager and treasurer presented reports explaining the process and rationale that led to the club's recent move to the Nickerson Marina Building, plans for the short-to-medium term management of the club, and a financial summary showing that the club is ahead of the fiscal plan associated with this move. These reports and the minutes are now on file in the Members Only Content section of this website.
The following officers were elected for 2018:
Secretary: Geoffrey Phipps
Treasurer: Stephen Graham
General Manager: Scot McConnachie
The other principal matter for discussion was the planning for the club's furniture drive. New tables and shelves are desired while preserving the flexibility of the space for different game setups. A couple of pre-built options for replacing the live game storage system, map cabinets and the IKEA modular wardrobe system, were rejected in favor of the club improving its current storage system or ultimately self-building a new system. Options before the club include retaining on-site storage for bulkier items, such as miniatures terrain. There was a consensus in favor removing the bulkier items from visibility in the club's space.
In other business, the club tightened up its personal food storage policy and will resume its search for a replacement refrigerator.
