As it appears there will be a lack of turn out from the Melbourne Robot Workshop and R2 Builders members in Melbourne I am turning over the table wholly for the Hackerspace to utilize. ( we will have 2 robot posters to put up though...LOL )
K-9 will be at the event but is being used in the Armageddon "Lords of Time " display with Allan's TARDIS to promote the big Dr Who event next April.
A tech on hand on the day would be useful in case of any K-9 cook outs.
Also chasing anyone who can assist wiring up the flashing Blue light on the TARDIS ( it is in Brighton ).
There is a good line up of stars attending.
Dave, are you still coming down, would be useful if you can, and you can meet Andy and Wes.

ARMAGEDDON EVENT 13-14TH OCT
the Armageddon event is scheduled 13-14th oct.
No, I didn't know what it was, either. Looks fun in similar vein to ComicCon
Presently, we have been offered a table with the Robot Builder group (also similar to ComicCon) to promote our club and amaze/impress the punters... er... general public!
Only problem is, we won't have any of the big robots (R2-D2, K9, etc.) available that weekend via the Robot Builders, so it's totally up to the Hackerspace / Melbourne CCHS crew to amp it up.
Therefore, we are doing a call-out for items to display.
We will have the club 3D printer(s) there and going if possible, and would like to borrow the LED cube I saw Andy with the other day.
'copters (may not be able to fly 'em per se, TBA)
anything at any stage of completion...
Also, 3D printed objects to show off, possibly sell... TBA)
--Also, call-out for volunteers to help promote club(s). We will only have 4x weekend passes, but can 'tag-team' them. Day passes $25.
-- Call-out for Hackerspace posters, promo materials, fliers, T-shirt designs, etc. I have some screen printing stuff and expertise, and about 500 small-ish B&W tshirts... Fabulous!
-- Application deadline: ASAP / RBN, (as soon as possible, right bl**dy now...) as only 4 weeks to go. Hurry!
1. Who would like to help us out that weekend, even if only for a few hrs?
We are really time pressed for this and must submit applications ASAP / RBN
but member-level calls volunteering for helping out, items, designs, etc. please let us know ASAP,
(but probably right up until the 'deadline' 7th Oct)
Wes, the frantically busy person.
