Carlo Addresses HackManhattan

Carlo addressed the group.

Carlo is uncertain about the move. Facing rent increase and short lease.

Their choices:

  1. to leave here at the end of March when lease is up.
  2. or have 2 months free rent for Studio E.

Assuming all goes well, we will move Sunday, February 24th at 5pm.

There was some discussion about when to start the preparation of Studio B. They will let us know when is good the week before. And there is some contention about packing before the move: do the movers pack or do we pack?
