Recap on Make-O-Rama

It was good, one new sign up. We sold a tea-shit, and a $50 donation.

We Really Really need to work harder on advertising the event.

Clif will post a draft event checklist, and someone will work on a greater checklist. Greaters should have shifts, and a stronger goal to get more signups.

We had some new ideas for Bobs Wall O vidio. Like EMS advertisements.


Clif, showed the space to our potential insurance agent today, which went well. He thinks we are still on track for a premium of around $50 / mo, and by the middle of next week we should have a concrete number. We might want to upgrade our safety tag system.We should have a laminated checklist behind each dangerous tooll.

James's event idea

Hands on is important and fun! How about a power tool races?

Anyway the point is to have lots more hands on events.

Future Events

Monthly Talks? One of our members want's to do a talk on sketch up.

Lets be a venue for classes and talks by anyone.

Perhaps we can get a table at the Myth-busters roadshow.

San Mateo Maker Farie. is coming up, should we have a talbe?

Other topics of discussion:

Fund Rasing, we could get a plastic LYMAN filament extruder.

Or we could buy some misc Adriano sensors for projects.

Action Items:

  • Work on greater check list.
  • Get fire extinguisher re-tagged.
  • Email list about maker faire and mini-maker faire
  • Post draft event checklist.
  • Want's to work on fund raising.
  • Contact space federation on what buckets to place doantions into.
