Decatur Makers monthly meeting: Make our space!

After a short status update, we'll divide up into interest groups.  Currently we're thinking of these 6 groups as a starting point:

• Electronics (e.g. Arduino, soldering)

• Programming/computers (e.g. Linux, Raspberry Pi, software)

• Digital fabrication (e.g. 3D printing and CNC)

• Woodworking

• Arts and crafts

• Robotics (which actually cuts across several others).

Each interest group will be asked to discuss and generate a wish list of equipment & space they think would be needed for (a) minimal entry level, (b) reasonable working set, (c) dream workshop.  We'll ask for approximate budgets and other details, too since that will help in our planning.

      Can you tell me a bit about what you think the monthly fees might be for the space? And we are interested in any programming classes that start up too.

      Our board has approved a $50/month fee for families. There will likely be sliding scales and other membership levels, too. And of course, we will need to review the structure after about a year of operation. Programming is something with a high level of interest, and we'll be looking into starting up something somewhat soon (months, not weeks).

    Sorry I didn't make it. My back and head ache from my travels earlier this week.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
