Greetings Members,

Metal shop will be hosting a local WTF (women/trans/femme) night this Monday November 20, 2017. This is an extension of Wench Welding in the Powderhorn neighborhood. The event is open to members and non-members alike who are looking for friendly faces of fabrication. Metal shop will re-open for regular use after the event.

Attendees: please bring wear natural fiber clothing and non-flammable closed-toed shoes if possible. We will be getting dirty, so you may not want to bring your favorite hoodie…

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Please contact Clara Schiller with any questions at 612-703-9211

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.

The Rocketeer Has Left The Earth

July 18th, 2017 by MechaVile

A fond farewell from all of us to our friend and ally, Blair.

     As most of you know our long-standing member and prop-maker, Blair, has recently passed after a bout with one of the most formidable of foes– cancer. He’s been near and dear to us and his many projects have delighted more folks than I could ever enumerate. It’s with a heavy heart that I make this post today. But the Earth still spins and the living must keep living and striving ever forward, even in the wake of our communal loss. To commemorate Blair’s memory, we’ll be having a cookout Wednesday the 19th of July and, on a date yet to be determined, hold a screening of The Rocketeer as well as HG Wells: The Time Machine.

There will be other services and memorials exalting Blair’s life in the following month as well. I wish you all the best.
