11/6/17 Minutes: Finished Winter Calendar, Spring Calendar Ideas

In attendance: Jackson (moderator), Ty (secretary)
Start time: 7:02 PM

1. Event Review – We showed Reds last Friday, and it went very well. The Popcorn Politics nights are continuously doing well, better than our usual movie nights.

2. Upcoming Event – Our discussion on the Russian Revolution is coming this Saturday! It’s gotten a good response, both on Facebook and in-person, and we hope it’ll be a good one. Jackson may prepare some specific talking points, but besides that we just need to set up the room for it.
