As requested, below are the notes from Populace meeting on Wednesday. 
Exchequer will not issue checks except at Populace and Officers meetings; need 72 hours advance notice to have a check ready at one of these times; exceptions can be made for emergencies on a case by case basis
Fian Ruadh:
Aingeal is the new commander 
Fian Ruadh practice is tentatively set to be the second Sunday of each month in conjunction with Elfsea's practice at Trinity Park @5pm.
The Fian Ruadh charter needs to be updated. This will be discussed at the Fian Ruadh meet & greet on 10/13.
Shire Library:
Aingeal & Caterina both volunteered space in their homes to house the Shire library. It voted on and decided to house it at Aingeal & Caerell's house. Due to the size of the library it was decided that 3 bookcases are needed. The Seneschal will be pricing bookcases and everyone is encouraged to do so as well and bring your findings to Officers meeting where we will vote on which ones to purchase.
Gulf War Gate Trip:
Date for trip has been moved to October 19-21 because more workers were available that weekend.
A demo coming up in December was discussed. It is sponsored by the Shire of Seawinds and is at a Ren faire called Enchanted Forrest. Looks like it could be fun.
Knight Marshall & Chronicler's offices are opening up for bids at next months Populace meeting. Those individual officers will be doing a brief talk on the responsibilities of their office at next months meeting.
Event Date Change Discussion:
Handouts on the pros and cons of moving our event to October and showing all the events that have occurred or will occur in October from 2005 to 2008 were passed out. It was suggested that we should not change the date and the venue in the same year. The possibility of pushing the change to 2009 to allow more planning was also mentioned. It was also suggested to talk with merchants and to continue talking with other groups who have their events in October and see what the challenges may be. It was mentioned that Graywood moved their event back to being opposite Gothic War because they could not get a good draw on the second weekend of October. Seneschal is checking into availability at current location later in October 2008 and also for October 2009. There will be a vote at October's Populace meeting to decide on whether to move the event. 
Anyone who wants copies of the handouts can email me and I will forward them to their personal email address.
