Sorry for the delayed message this week, but it's all about building
anticipation. The change to our member meeting format went really well.
Matt Pinner is now the Signage & Art Node Ninja and Zeve is the Telepresence
Robot Wrangler and I am continuing to bend wordpress to my will for
crashspace.org 1.5 (It's not HackerspaceOS, but it will do for this round)
Theron has been rockin' the Makerbot and has started teaching people how to
print parts informally. He'll be teaching a class soon, so stay tuned for
that. Michael Clive has also gotten the CNC working and has made a
successful rocket test. YAY!
Another class on the way,(on the CNC that is, not rockets, but maybe he'll
do that too, hint hint)
Tod has put himself the hook for the next Kit Build Night, it'll probably be
last week of July/first week of August. He's planning on it being the Simon
