    • control room operations : offered on Thursday mornings and during shadow shifts
    • PPS : offered on Wednesday during maintenance day. This must be taken by new shifters.
    • Dependent on who is on shift. Once the shift lists are filled we can pre-plan the training.
    • Generally agreed to. Some discussion about requiring new collaborators to do PPS on a Wednesday if their shifts
      don't start until the following Tuesday, but decided that this was a safety issue and that groups would have to think
      about their own shift schedule to ensure that this is efficiently done within the group
  • Operations meetings in June : Daily at 3pm. Goal will be to review previous nights data-taking, and plan the next night.
    • Decided that this meeting would have to take place at 6pm due to legal requirements and to give the physics shifter time to
      analysis the previous nights data
  • Shifts in June User Cycle 01b :
    • 22:00 - 06:00 am nightshift ( 2 shifters )
    • reserve shifter for other running periods
  • AOB
    • Henry stated that, when a problem happens, he cannot find the right information in the elog entries. This led to a discussion
      that concluded that many shifters don't know what the right information in a particular case actually is. We decided to start a
      binder to go in the CR for shifters labelled "What to note down when something happens" with instructions for shifters.
    • BLOC takeup: Henry will send Steven his list of possible BLOCs. Joe Langlands from Sheffield has already volunteered
