Our first meeting ever!

I would like to get together and meet the people who are interested in the makerspace, as well as introduce myself and my visions for the space. If you know anyone who would be interested, please invite them to join as well. I believe that everyone has the capacity to be a maker, and all ages and abilities are welcome here.  This is an open meeting, so feel free to bring friends.

A note on the venue: Parking is a little strange for the shelter.  Park in the parking lot on the north side of Midway Blvd near the intersection of Midway Blvd and Marble Street.  Walk between the buildings to the northeast and the shelter will be right there.  See the picture if that's not clear:

    I'm really glad to see all the excitement! I would encourage a little bit of patience as well. My plan for getting more locals involved is to put up fliers around Broomfield in a couple of weeks. It's lo-tech, but effective. That, along with getting the word out on social media and just talking to people should be enough for now. But first we need a website so people can see what we're all about. And before we get a website we need a name. So the biggest thing you guys can do to help is that list I gave out last week. I also put it up as a "Discussion" on meetup.
    I hope you guys are coming up with good names, and I hope to see you all tomorrow!

    So, how can we get more Broomfield local people to enter the community at this stage? Someone else noticed there aren't many ppl from Broomfield, at the last meeting. I think this'll help ensure the development of the makerspace has strong support.

    If anyone is interested, the Habitat store in Broomfield has a lathe for $100. It's Craftsman brand and looks like it'll need a bit of work to get going. I can send some pictures if anyone wants them.

    Just so everybody knows: I just checked the weather and it's a 35 percent chance of rain. I'm near the park and it looks nice out, and if it does rain the meeting place is completely covered. So hopefully I'll see you all there,

    It looks like it is going to rain. If it does, I won't be able to make it this time.

    I'm afraid I'm going to miss the meeting as I'll be working later in the day. Bummer.

    Anyone driving from Boulder and interested in carpooling? I'm unfortunately unable to drive due to an injury right now.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
