    Thanks to everyone who helped make this event awesome!

    I hope people liked the Egg-Bot and Banana Pong game I had on display. (I also had my 3D printer running, along with samples of 3D prints, some laser-cut art, and my Laser Kaleidoscope elsewhere in the building.)

    It appears that a good time was had by all. So many people walked the maze of the Makers Space which was filled with all sorts of exciting inventions and artwork. The friendly faces of the members of the space showed great enthusiasm in exhibiting their work and welcoming their many guests. Much networking was done, and some people even made new friendships. There was a ongoing mix of flat art, installations, dance, music, spoken word, sculpture, and a handful for art that just don't fit into any neat box. One can not forget the spirit tastings, the beer and wine, and mostly the tasty pizza donated by the friendly folks at Transfer Pizza. Thanks to all who have attended, your interest in art makes our community a much better place. Do not fret, if you missed this gathering you can take a breath, as the next Art Jamboree is already in the planning stages.
