Weekly Meeting Minutes – 4/16/2014

In lieu of a meeting agenda this week, we decided to take notes during out meeting. As there is certainly adult beverages being consumed, it does not seem pertinent to track the actual minutes, though the topic should certainly be logged for future discussion.

  • Packed up tools and cleaned up areas that may have been missed in previous cleanup projects
  • Set up the table in the yard for photos
  • Work on charter letter
  • Play Carpetball
  • Play Carpetball
  • Talk about Carpetball
    • New game option in research and development: Five Star Drop for plush carpet
      • To start a game, each player arranges four balls in a diamond shape. The fifth ball must be placed on top of and in the center of the four balls. This ball must be in contact with each of the four balls forming a base of a pyramid. The balls forming the base of the pyramid may be oriented in any direction the player wishes and in any location behind the Penal line.
      • Before gameplay starts, each player must stand on their respective end of the table and hold a ball (cue ball and eight ball, for example) above the ball pyramid. The ball must be held a minimum of 6 inches above the pyramid. Each player simultaneously will call out 1, 2, 3, Carpetball! and drop their ball. The player may not impart any downward force or rotation to the ball being dropped. The drop ball must contact the pyramid first with the ball at the top of the pyramid.
      • The ball drop will define the ball formation for the start of gameplay. Any balls that roll completely beyond the Penal line are forfeited and must be placed in the gutter. In this option, the ball is permitted to be partially touching the line, however may not be completely beyond the line. Any balls that roll into the gutter during the drop must remain in the gutter for the duration of the game unless forced onto the playing surface or off the table during normal gameplay. The drop ball will not be used during gameplay, with the exception of the cue ball, and must be removed from the table and must not be placed in player’s gutter.
      • If the players happen to extend gameplay to the second round, a Four Star Drop will commence as described in the Five Star Drop gameplay option.
      • Any further rounds will revert to Elite Mode, which allows the player to place the 3-, 2- and finally 1- ball rounds in any configuration defined in traditional gameplay rules.
  • Play Carpetball

….. Now that it is two days past the meeting and our lack of commitment to documenting our endeavors has been made evident, I feel that it is time to finish this post! As you can tell, playing Carpetball took precedence over other pressing matters. Without further adieu, I will proceed to update the list above, which you have likely already read, making this sentence completely unnecessary.
