Laser Cutter Training
Feb 21 @ 10:00 – 12:30
The next Laser Cutter/Engraving course is on the calendar for Saturday, Feb 21, at 10:00 am. The course itself should wind up about noon, but there will be an opportunity for a some projects and cutting after the course.
To take the class you must have taken the basic safety training and be a member in good standing (i.e. paid-up) at the Space. Probationary members (non-vetted) may attend but will not receive access until they are vetted. Young members may attend if accompanied by an adult.

The absolute maximum number of participants is 12. We will run the course if there are at least 4 sign-ups

Note that this training is specific to the use of the Laser hardware and LaserCut 6.0 (the software that runs the hardware). It does not cover the CAD programs typically used to do the drawings. For the most part most programs that can give you a DXF file will do.

We will do classroom work, demonstrations, and discussion. If you would like to have a chance to cut your own project, please bring a ready-to-go DXF file on a memory stick (or put it on a one-drive/google-drive/dropbox or similar web-accessible cloud). Also, if you have specific material you want to have a go at, bring a chunk along.

There is no charge to attend, but attendees must coordinate the delivery of at least one cup of coffee to the instructor. (Snacks and more coffee are up to the participants.)
Questions may be addressed on one of these threads. -discuss is probably the better thread unless its about, well, -administration.
IMPORTANT! Do not email the list/group or the instructors with “Is this still happening?” or “How do I sign up?” If the course is cancelled or changed, we will announce it here, AND email the individuals. If you sign up, you are EXPECTED to attend or advise the instructors as early as possible. For this course, you can email me directly if you need to de-register.
If you’ve gotten this far, you appear qualified to know the super-secret sign-up process. Go to http://goo.gl/forms/0hLmFI47Pd and fill out the form. Real Name and Working Email are required.
New Member Orientation and General Safety Training
Feb 21 @ 15:00 – 16:00

Familiarize yourself with Protospace and basic shop safety. This course is required before using any tool bigger than a screwdriver at the space.

Tabletop Games Night
Feb 21 @ 19:00
Come join us for some goodly fun!
Games will start around 7, but you are welcome to come and go as needed, so latecomers are welcome — but you may have to wait for a seat in a game or a new round to start (or, start up a new game!)  Bring whatever games you enjoy playing, or pick one from the shelf in the Members’ Lounge. We have fairly broad interests, and a good variety of people, so there is lots of choice.
Mini makers are welcome (as always, accompanied by a parent or guardian), and therefore, family-friendly games will be the norm until 9:00 pm, after which more adult fare may be played as interest demands.
Food and beverages are supplied by the participants (you!), so in the interest of public nutritional variation, please consider that everyone defaults to bringing donuts!
In particular, the April 11 edition is in celebration of International Tabletop Day, so check out http://tabletopday.com.
