GRMakers Social

Come join us at 401 Hall St SW at 8 PM on 09/04/13!

The Boiler Room is currently being built out for us, but we are meeting on the fourth floor in a space being provided to us just down the hall from Mutually Human.  The doors of the temporary space will be open on the fourth floor at 6 PM, but we will be officially shifting the start time to 8 PM since that is when most people arrive anyways.  Please park on the north side of the building and enter through the door behind the Boiler Room.  Proceed through the under building parking structure to the elevator, go up to the fourth floor, take a left at the fork in the hallway and we are located on your right!

GrrCON badges!!

Our GrrCON badge materials should be arriving this week and we hope to have the assembly line at least tentatively set up on Wednesday.  Join the GRMakers Google Group and the discussion called GrrCON assembly day to add input that will help us streamline the process!  We will be posting to facebook with more details, but the Google Group is the way to get the most up to date information.

Cannonsburg Pintwood Derby

We are pairing with Perrin Brewing Co. for a world record attempt at the longest Pinewood Derby track at 350 plus feet!  We have a sample section of track that we will be putting together at the space at the social and look forward to your help and ideas!
RSVP for the actual event at the Cannonsburg Pintwood Derby's event.

Tool Donation

Help us fill our empty temporary tool boxes with your little used, duplicate and forgotten about tools!  Any little bit helps so we can have a few hand tools in the space during our time of transition!

"What's Going On??"

"What's Going On??" is our five minute talks starting around 9 PM where you can share your ideas and projects with the group.  This is NOT limited to technology or topics pertaining to GRMakers, but can be anything of interest that you can teach to the crowd! If you want to speak, there will be a signup when you walk in the door.  Just remember, you only have five minutes to speak, but a whole night to clarify to anyone who is interested.  Our community is defined by the brilliance of our members and "What's Going On??" gives you an opportunity to shine!  We do record the "What's Going On??" for the Youtube channel, but if you are not comfortable with this, let us know and we will not record it.  We want you to share and will work to make you as comfortable in this sharing environment!

As usual:

Note that we will have tables and chairs and coolers with drinks and some snacks donated by our loving community, but we won't be moving the tools into the space until The Boiler Room is ready for us.  We do, however, encourage you to bring your projects and your ideas into this temporary space to make it feel like home during these growing pains. Thank you so much for your support.

We MAKE things and help others with their projects, Everyone is encouraged to bring their own projects to work on and show off.

      I don't know if anyone talked to you about Future Tech Farm, but they're local. Their focus is hydro, but some of the products they're considering might work with aqua.

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