Day of the Dead Party 2011 Recap

Thanks to all who waded through wicked weather to attend our post-Halloween party on Tuesday evening November 1. We had more types of lights than you can count on 2 hands and more importantly, dozens of people stopping by to see them! Special thanks to John E. for wowing everyone with lasers, fog, and sound-reactive flowers (as seen at Burning Man, Apogaea and other events); Peter for the awesome music; and Rudy and Liz for the food.

If you missed the party, remember you can always stop on by on any Tuesday evening starting around 7:30 for our weekly public meeting, and/or check in with us if you want to stop by on a Saturday afternoon or other time!

Thanks to Mollie for the photos!

November 1: Day of the Dead Party

On Tuesday November 1 we will interrupt our regularly scheduled meeting for a Day of the Dead party! If you’ve been meaning to check us out anyway (or not, but just love fun Halloween activities), here’s an even better reason. You never know what kind of crazy contraptions a Hackerspace can come up with around Halloween! And if you’ve already made this space your place then help make the night even more right by contributing your skills and talents to make it extra cool!

Time: 8:00 pm – ? on Tuesday Nov 1

  • Costumes encouraged
  • Prizes for best costume(s)
  • BYOB
  • we’ll have some food, a DJ, fog and blinky lights
  • other special engineering marvels (maybe… the problem is, it’s hard for us hackers to finish anything)

We’ll be creating an event page on Facebook and / or check back here for more info. See you there!

We’re Moving!

Howdy Hackers,

This weekend we’re moving shop to our new location, which is about a mile closer to downtown Boulder from where we are currently. If you want to join in the moving fun, we’ll be starting around 10 am on Saturday.

Our next official weekly Tuesday meeting – August 2 – is up in the air at this point since we may not be moved in enough to have a meeting at our new place. Check back on our website and/or the Google Group when we get closer for where we’ll meet on August 2.

New address: 5311 Western Ave, Suite 115, Boulder CO, 80301. Our entrance is on the west side of the building.

Special thanks to Lee for taking the lead on finding us this great new space!

Saturday the 14th

Rain didn’t keep us from having a great time at the space this past Saturday. We still barbecued, built stuff, collaborated, got creative, had a lot of fun! Photos from Dan D-B.
