Quarterly Clean-Up, Saturday November 4th 10am-6pm

October 31st, 2017 by orion

The elder gods of cleanliness have chosen you, young hobbyist, as their avatar.

 

It’s that time again, makers, to clean and rearrange our spaces to make it better for everyone. If you have a bit of time and a bit of love for our little maker space, show up and help us clean our areas with other like-minded and like-hearted makers.

The shop will be closed to projects between 10am and 6pm so show up any time between then to help out. Shops will resume normal operation after 6pm.

Last grilling 2017!

Wednesday October 25th

We will be doing a Big Green Egg style slow smoked Turkey!

As usual Mia will bring her assortment of vegetable goodies!

*Technically I will be using a Akorn grill, which is the same style as a Big Green Egg.

**Technically the above are peaches, a fruit. We will also have assorted vegetables – likely carrots, green onions etc.

Quarterly Clean Up 5-6-17 10AM-6PM

quarterly

Hey Twin Cities, it’s that time again.

Quarterly clean up is scheduled for Saturday 5-6-17 from 10am to 6pm so the Hack Factory will be unavailable for projects during that time. If you have materials laying around the shop that are unlabeled, no longer active or have outdated tags make sure you come in between now and then to claim those so they do not get thrown away or moved to Up-For-Grabs.

If you have time that day, please consider spending a bit to help us more thoroughly clean our space and dispose of unneeded materials and abandoned projects. You know we love our space and our members so if you’ve got some elbow grease to spare we’d appreciate your presence and support in making this another successful cleaning day.

And as always Twin Cities…

Hack Well. Hack Hard.

Survey

November 30th, 2015 by orion

We need your help to give us feedback so we can make decisions on what new tools to buy, improve on communicating to members, and asking for volunteers.
We’ve changed wording/added questions from the last survey, so even if you took the last one – please still visit www.tinyurl.com/TCINPUT
It doesn’t matter if you are an active member or not, we’re interested in hearing what you think!
If you prefer – a paper version of the Survey can also be found in the front entrance under the Volunteer/Event Bulletin Board.

Thank you for Your Time!

September Quarterly Clean-Up

Quarterly Clean-Up

September 26th 10am – 6pm

Focus: Member Storage and Classroom
_______________________________________________________________________

It’s here again folks and you know you want to get your hands dirty getting this place clean. Quarterly clean-up runs the same as always with two reminders.

Reminder: Update your tags and take home inactive projects

We’re making a special focus on cleaning up Member Storage this time around so if you’re  reading this, then there is a definite possibility that your materials may get red tagged or, if they’re already red tagged, moved to Up For Grabs or thrown out at our discretion. This is, of course, for the courtesy of all of our members and we do value your possessions and projects as much as you value this space so please come in and update your tags, downsize your storage and take home any inactive projects or supplies.

Reminder: Cleaning Deputies

Each area manager should either be in attendance, as is good cleaning practice, or a cleaning deputy should be assigned to marshal the cleaning of their individual area so as to streamline the cleaning process and alleviate the wandering confusion many of us may have felt on our first clean-up. Feel free to volunteer yourself on the Google Group to be a deputy for certain areas or, if none are available on the day, to deputize yourself if you feel you have a firm grasp of the area and its cleaning needs.
(Holsters not necessary but encouraged.)

For those without guidance, look for the tell tale star marking a cleaning deputy when you arrive and they’ll direct you towards a cleaner, happier Hack Factory.

Mock-Up Deputy

And, as always, Twin Cities Makers…

Hack Well. Hack Hard.
