Refreshments Committee:

COSine 2021:

    Committee consensus is to cancel/postpone COSine2021 due to dinosaur invasion/pandemic and reset for 2022. This has been run by the hotel, no penalties.
    Check with GOH and see if they are available in 2022
    Will check in with pre-regs to see if they want refunds.

Old Business:

    No 4th of July picnic this year. If we think the second wave is over let’s discuss in August.
    See what sort of interest there is in shared virtual movie night. Maybe shared Netflix or Discord. There is interest, need to experiment with applications. Eli will investigate.
