to calendar ..

Bring something to show off to the group. Any project is welcome whether it be completed, half finished or just plans or just bring your laptop and geek out.

We'll be planning ideas to submit at the BOSS Hacktember Meet Aug 26th 6:00 at Isotope 11. So think about things you'd like others to help you work on.

This is also an oportunity to submit designs for the logo and mission statement. We'll be silkscreening shirts on the 27th at Bottletree.

As always the meeting is free to attend and participate in, but if you would like to be a full member please bring cash or check to pay your monthly dues and bring us that much closer to having our own space.
