Atul started off - explained the need for a new coordinator becasue of Mahendra having been posted in Pune. He named the new co-ord as Kingsly John (who had specifically flown in from Dubai for the meet) - being the winner after a game of ----- against Khader and Kalyan

Then the whole group went through a post-mortem of sorts of LB2001 - its +ves and -ves.

        Should we have the event during the week or weekend because not all
        students got attendance
        Business timings? - business crowd less likely to attend on their
        own time.

BLUG membership issue has to be worked out; have to formalise and issue cards and numbers

Then Atul started the presentation on Digital Cameras - demoed flash cards that fit into PCMCIA Cards and are recognised as another device - can read and use data on it fro anything we want.

Meet ended with excellent snacks
