Hello fellow drone geeks! We're excited to co-host a meetup with our sister org, PDX Drones (, to launch a national contest connecting drone enthusiasts with the public good. Please come join us at Lucky Lab next Wednesday to kick things off!

The contest is a project of AUVSI - Cascade ( in partnership with The Roswell Flight Test Crew (, sUAS News (, and PDX Drones (, and the grand prize sponsor is our local friends at Aerial Technology International ( Thanks so much to all of our partners, and especially to ATI for putting up a truly amazing machine as the contest grand prize to get our drone geek mouths watering, and for sponsoring the kickoff party! You guys are amazing.

We'll do a short presentation on how this project came together, and finish with the first official viewing of the contest intro video produced by our seriously creative friends and contest production sponsors at Visual Aid (; a gifted film production studio here in PDX just getting turned on to drones! They've done an inspiring job of putting together an eloquent call to action for drone enthusiasts to engage the public good across this entire country, and we're looking forward to sharing it with you.

Of course there will be a wonderful crowd of drone geeks, other geeks, and the growing legions of the fascinated and curious... as well as beer and pizza!

We hope you can make it next Wednesday. Cheers!
