no other team updates

new Trustees, Teams have new responsible trustees
trustees can no longer be responsible for team they have vested interest in

Hackspace 2.5 Update:- Skips on last HtSd cleared a lot of the mess
pulling the floor up this sunday

Doors are expensive, current quote are in the range of £6k
Looking for fire door, and disabled access spec is pushing the cost
Project plan in hand

From a google group message from Michel: discuss spreading the load of the trustees and getting the membership more involved --Michael Erskine (talk) 10:04, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
Question raised as to if we should have more trustees?

Michael has seen in his first week that the trustees can at time do a lot of work, should this be spread around between more turstee’s
can we push it more to the members by engaging new members better

are we a service? or a community (edited)

has the space been sold in the past as a service even if the current tours are not

larger question, do we have enough members engaged in the space or helping out, are they finding out about things that are going on

Matt Lloyd [8:35 PM] 
EMFCamp village needs and costings 'RepRap’ Matt

Email with prices for village tents has been sent around
```Following tradition at other hacker festivals, EMF actively encourages activities to be hosted by our attendees in their own "villages" - areas of the campsite where small groups of people gather together and put on their own content for other attendees, or just camp as a recognisable group    .

In order to facilitate this we are able to offer those organising villages the chance to hire a small marquee/tent that will be set up for them by our suppliers, ready for when they arrive.

Currently we have three tent sizes available:
6m x 6m :    £350
3m x 6m :    £180
3m x 3m :    £100

And you can also hire chairs and tables:
Chairs :        £5
Table:          £1.50

To order these online go to https://www.emfcamp.org/tickets/choose/other - We will be closing sales no later than 28th June to ensure we are able to fullfil all orders.

All payments must be made up front and be received before we will process your order.
