What a blast ! All the makers were happy to share as much info as you'd be willing to listen. Got alot of information on rocket construction, satellite communication, "small" RC models.

It had a good variety of projects and technologies being demonstrated. A lot of fun! Looking for an even larger show next year.
I'm attending the event with my son, Zach. Unfortunately, I don't think that I would be able to help with an exhibit this time. Zach and I have not been to the meetings in a while, but we hope to resume in November.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
