The AVC was a fun event, several SSD’ers were there to cheer on the ground and air vehicles trying to make it around the SparkFun building in Gunbarrel. Details in SparkFun’s recap of the AVC. In addition to the competition, SparkFun offered tours of the building, catered food for purchase, live music and other announcer entertainment.
After the AVC we held a party/bbq at our space on Western Ave. In addition to the food we had a number of activities: Peter brought his DJ setup and spun tunes for us and Chris C, Ry N, Ben B, Tijlon and others played guitars. John E brought the centerpiece for his hit Apogaea art installation, the Sound Puddle. We got our Rubens’ tube going after dark – videos

The food was great and the conversation was lively. We’ll try to make this a once-a-quarter activity
