Meetup details changed: July 2012 Robotics Meetup

From: Roy B
Sent on: Wednesday, July 11, 2012 7:06 AM

 

Good news everyone! NextFab has agreed to host our next meetup (Tomorrow, Thursday June 13). Note the earlier time - 7:00, not our usual 7:30

http://www.meetup.com/Philadelphia-Robotics-Group/events/70270122/

When: Thursday, July 12,[masked]:00 PM

Where: NextFab Studio
3711 Market Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104

If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Yes".)

 

Agenda:

- Welcome new members

- Discussion of member projects

- - Solar Car

- - Cheap Robot Design Competition (http://www.robotics-africa.org/design_challenge.html)

- Discussion of new venues (NextFab may charge us for subsequent meetups, since we'd be keeping them past their normal closing time). The story so far:
-- Whole Foods is no longer accepting public use of their conference room
-- The Hactory is moving (to NextFab?), but we may be able to use their old space.

-- Main Library - we may be able to use them in August, but after that their room will be closed for renovations for about a year

-- NextFab - we'll have to see how much they'd charge us.


Also, in case you were not aware, Meetup does supply a message board where you can ask for help with your robotics projects, or help others with theirs.  I will also be posting meetup summaries here - when I can find the time!

Hope to see you at the meetup! Let me know if you have anything you'd like to demo or discuss at the meetup.
