First Meetup!

For our first meetup, we'd like to have a simple meet and greet. We can all introduce ourselves and feel free to bring something for show and tell. I will be showing a set of RGB LEDs controlled by an Arduino. I use them as turn signals on my motorcycle. Once we all know each other, we can talk about the makerspace. We'll talk about everything we have done so far and what our plans are ahead and we can get input from you about what you would like to see. Other than that, there will surely be random tech conversations as people like us tend to be passionate about the things we like :)

We are still trying to decide on a definite time and location but it is down to Saturday, Oct. 19, or Sunday, Oct. 20, at either Katy Park or Katy Library. We are open to suggestions! Either way, we hope to see as many of you there as possible and we know it will be a lot of fun!

    Hey, it was good to meet you all as well. Ya'll might drive me to build more things so I won't show up empty handed next time. ;)

    Which just got me thinking...I wonder why the robot fighting league does not have an aerial combat sub-category. Obviously some pitfalls in implementation but I suspect they can all be addressed. And I bet you people would love (and pay) to see that.

    It was good to meet more local people with similar interests. I look forward to more meetups and seeing where this goes.

    It looks like there might be a little rain tomorrow but that's not going to stop us!

    Since the Meetup is around lunch time, we thought it would cool to bring some drinks and pizzas for everyone. We'll bring a big ice chest full of bottled water and a few pies from Little Caesar's. Feel free to bring your own food/drink if you want something different.

    Can't wait to meet all of you at our first Meetup!
