No Meeting Tonight

Hey all! Due to the snow and state of the roads in Blacksburg, there will be no meeting tonight. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you next week at the open meeting!

Happy snow day!

Meeting Tonight

Hello everyone! We’re having a general meeting tonight at 7:30 PM at the space. The agenda is here. We will be discussing the placement and setup of the new laser cutter among other things.

As always, these meetings are free and open to the public at large, where you can get tours of the space and its equipment, ask questions about the space, see what business we conduct, and so forth. If you were curious about Hacksburg but didn’t know where to start, tonight’s the night to stop by!

No Meeting Tonight - Happy Thanksgiving!

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, we will not be having a general meeting tonight at the space. Happy Thanksgiving, safe travels, and we look forward to seeing you next week!

The class costs $10 to cover materials. If you can, please bring a heat gun, EVA foam, and concept photos for the Q&A.
