Solid State Depot is Moving!!!!!! (again)

We have outgrown our current space and are moving into a new, better space. Come help us get settled in.

We can use all the help we can get. Whether your a long time member or just recently found the group, you’re welcome to come join moving party. You can check out our new digs and see what we’re all about.

Here is the tentative plan:

Packing has already commenced. If you want to come in tonight to help pack that would be great. Friday day will also be packing time for anyone who can make it. Friday evening after the bulk of us are off of work, we will begin taking small loads to the new space and continue packing anything else left over. Saturday, We will be getting a rental truck to move most of the furniture and equipment. Times for the rental truck have yet to be determined, but I’ll update this post as soon as we know. Most of us plan on being there starting at 8-9am and working most of the day. If you can come at any point during Saturday, this is when we will need the most help.

5311 Western Ave. Suite 115 Boulder, CO 80301
1965 33rd Street, Building E B*, Boulder, CO 80301 (located around the corner from Twisted Pine, and on the backside of The Spot, next to Anco Engineers). It’s a U-shaped building, we are inside the U.
*oops – our lease said E, but it is actually unit B.

We plan on having people at both locations throughout the day (mostly the old location in the morning), if you show up at either location, I’m sure there will be plenty to help with.

We will be supplying beer and pizza.

Bring your friends, bring your family, come check out the new space, and most of all come help your local hackerspace!

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
