Shawn has offered to go halfsies with us for dedicated folding tables, somewhere around $20 each on our end. We would likely store them at Mammoth and use them for meetings, and could additionally use them for events in the area if necessary.

Mac questions the stock of our Murder Apocalypse sample books. We think we're good for now, but a second printing is always an option.

The Corvidae Courier exists! The next issue will be prepared with extras for OWFI; if you want to submit an article or a piece to be printed in it, do it! Get in contact with Jack (I think).

Expanded Horizons Project! I guess we're bringing hard copies of stuff to each meeting to incentivize lending.

Jack is meeting with the director of YST 1/18/17 at 9 am to discuss our outreach with them!

Due to our unprecedented success there, JayCee suggests changing how authors are paid for having their books in 1907 (the store, not the year). Our cup runneth over!
