Here are the dates, and links to the Eventbrite page where you can sign up:

Tuesday 9/5 at 7PM

Quarterly Clean-Up, Saturday August 5th 10am-6pm

August 1st, 2017 by MechaVile

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. Our focus this quarterly clean-up will be the front lobby area and installing vinyl flooring into the soon-to-be computer lab in addition to our normal seasonal space sprucing.

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.

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.
