Meeting Notes



Eric is taking point on the picnic.

We had great responses to the call for volunteers from the survey! Eric will be finalizing the location then reaching out to the volunteers for help making it happen.

Eric put out a survey on Facebook to see what date works best for the group.


Patrick will be organizing a postmortem and tournament for Divekick.

The Chicago Game Jam should move to October so we don’t conflict with a charity game jam being hosted in September.


We will work with Marvin on establishing a date for the Third Chicago Game Jam and continue moving forward with planning for it.
