I am supportive of spending on the order of $2000 to assist you and
Hamish to attend the Mentor Summit.

If there is no objection from any board member on this list by
Wednesday morning, consider permission granted by me as Treasurer.

I do feel we need to wait to Wednesday morning (your time) to give
board members a reasonable chance to raise objections.

For next years budget we should include some money in the budget
for the SoC program (shirts, travel).  I'll try to keep this in mind.
