Hacksburg

Blacksburg's Workshop

Meeting Tonight

Hello everyone!

Tonight, we’ll have our general meeting at 7:30 PM at the space. The agenda is here. We’ll be discussing upcoming events and plans for Summer Solstice Fest and our second Adafruit group buy. As always, we’ll also be talking about what we’ve worked on the past week, so feel free to bring your projects (or pics thereof) for show-and-tell. After the meeting, we will, as usual, have our open work session, where you can get help with a project you’re roadblocked on or hang out with like-minded makers.

Hope to see you there!

Group Buy

Hello everyone!

We are doing another adafruit group buy. The idea is that you pick out what you want and we put it on the list to order and if the order is large enough we get a discount. Payment will be due when the order is placed. The discount varies by item, but typically is 30% of retail price. Not everything gets a discount – most test equipment, 3D printers and supplies, and dev boards don’t, for instance. But many components, Arduino shields, displays, sensors, and accessories do get the discount.

Timeline: * Now-June 10: Potential buyers get their orders in. * June 10, 5PM EDT: Deadline for new orders. Google doc is protected, and items are checked for availability. * June 17, 7:30 PM EDT: Adafruit finalization meeting. Confirmed buyers come to Hacksburg to finalize orders and pay. Adafruit order is placed that night. * Late June/Early July: Order arrives at Hacksburg and is divided by buyer; buyers notified to pick up orders at the next Hacksburg meeting.

No Meeting Tonight

Hello everyone! We won’t be having a meeting this week because most of our Board is unavailable and we don’t have much to cover anyway. I will be at the space today after 7 PM to work on my own projects; if you want to see the space or have any questions, I will be there.

See you all next week.
