FYI as mentioned on the Google Group the Hack Factory / TC Maker has a booth at the Red Stag Block Party. 3 - 10 Saturday. If you can drop by great. If you can help even better. Steve and I will be taking the Operation game and a few other things over to setup leaving from the Hack Factory at about 1.

Can anybody bring Operation back at the end of the Night? I will likely need to bail at about 5:00.
I'm not sure if the booth is staffed for the later hours either. If you can help say so here, and copy the Google Group too.

If anyone has rights to add this to the calendar that would be good too. Dave is on a plane, not sure who else has access. Wammie?!?

The block party was a good time.
TC Maker and the Hack Factory was there with a booth featuring "Operation", Steve's robot, and a gauss gun I rather hastily put together (about the last 3rd in the booth) I have a couple of pictures I'll post. We pulled out a bit early as the area was getting a bit overwhelmed by the skate board contest near by.

There were quite a few folks who stopped by to ask what we are about, and hopefully we'll being a few at future open houses.

[Suggestions for next time]
We need a sign for mobile use.
    EL Wire was suggested, anyone want to help build one, the wire and inverters are cheap
    I believe there are Arduino controller if anyone is looking for a use for new found skills
Power is good, Dave brought batteries and an inverter, which was very helpful.
Branded gear / clothing for those working would be good, t-shirts, hat, etc

Dang that guy by the gauss gun has a big forehead.
I vote that we get some TC Maker / Hack Factory hats ASAP!
