The third quarter meeting of the Board of Directors for the calendar year of 2011 was held on August 14th at 12:00 noon. The minutes for that meeting are below. The majority of the meeting was focused on the nominees for The Oggies. That focus, coupled with numerous missing members, resulted in an abbreviated meeting.

Previously Tabled Discussions
Continued delays mostly as a result of active schedules and the continued functionality of the basic wiki setup.
Camp Oggie Location Hunting
The Subcommittee on Camp Oggie, led by Jake Kubitschek, was established during the first quarter 2011 meeting, and it was explicitly stated that failure to lock in a location in a suitable time would force a cancellation of the event for this calendar year. The subcommittee failed to convene at all. The two members of the subcommittee present during this meeting both had located potential sites, but neither had availability data listed or agreeable pricing with such short notice. No locations were provided from absentee subcommittee members. As a result, Camp Oggie will not be able to go forward in 2011. Plans for it becoming biannual and happening in 2012 were discussed, and a change in the subcommittee to ensure the event is successful.
