The booth location - do you have this now, or will it not be chosen until that day (I'm coming straight to my shift from an external event, and want to find you quickly.)

1. GOOD NEWS - Late last night, I got word from the PCB fab that the Drawdio PCBs were shipping. The expected arrival is Friday by 10:30am. Talk about Just-In-Time manufacturing :-)

2. TOOLS - I made a Harbor Freight run tonight, and picked up various tools - plenty of the micro flush cutters, wire strippers, SCISSORS (which have been in short supply at the space, so that hopefully won't be an issue for a little while) and a bunch of other stuff. Also got plenty of small zip ties for the Drawdios.

3. BUSINESS CARDS - are in. They look good (they're the original design with the definition of Hackerspace on the back)

4. THINGS TO DO:
-Sign up for a shift if you haven't:

5. FRIDAY PLAN
Right now, the plan is for those helping with setup to meet at LaunchHouse around "noonish". From there, we'll do whatever still needs to be done (printing labels for the Drawdio kits, organizing tools, soldering irons, etc. We'll probably leave LH around 2:30-3:00, and then head over to the event. Doors open for general admission at 5pm.

Anything I'm missing?
