7) Marklin Collection

   -ASO Reports that the bids so far are not good.
   -JEM made a survey on E-bay, calculating that if we
    sold everything on E-bay we would get about $3500.
   - Motion to tell the dealer we want $2500 (no lower).
     If they go for it, we'll sell it.  If they don't,
     we'll go to the next step.  MPU

   - Step 2: try to sell whole thing in E-bay with a
     reserve price of $2500.  Buy-it-now $3000.
     Talk to Stefano about it.

   - Step 3: Individual sales on E-bay, would need to setup
     an MIT e-commerce account.

     ML, JP, Roger, others will help.

   - Step 4: hopefully there's no step 4.

8) Disapaearing Treasurer's Desk

   - Suggestion: we can get a safe for about $100 (TR)

   - Better one: swap the old desk with tools & the
     treasurer's desk; then cut the tools storage off the
     old desk, and put that under the layout.

     All agreed.

9) Scenecomm & storage

   - Motion: to pressure scene-comm until they go through
     all the boxes and they figure out what is useful, and
     get rid of what is not; once the plywood is set, the
     rest will be set appart for sale / disposal no later
     than the fall.
