    If anyone is interested, I'm hosting a 3D Printing talk and demonstration at WestJet Campus on Weds July 17th. If you're interested you're welcome to come by - say you're there to meet Shannon and need to go to the Vision room - they will direct you to one of the main conference rooms behind the reception desk. Event starts at 11am, talk starts at 11:30am.

      Shannon, let us know of you plan to do other demos – I have a workshop on Wed 17 July so I can't attend much as I'd like to.
