Maker and Volunteer Meeting: 16 July 2014, 7-9ish pm

Our first meeting for VOLUNTEERS and MAKERS will be Wednesday, July 16, from 7-9ish at the new Quelab, located at:

680 Haines Avenue NW  (at 7th)
Albuquerque, NM 87102
We have a number of things we’d like to start planning — and discussing the feasibility of — right off the bat, so come on down.
Regular meetings will be held every Wednesday up until the event itself at Quelab, 7-9ish.
If you are interested in volunteering this year, and you have not already filled out the volunteer sign-up form, please do so. We use the spreadsheet generated from that form to send out emails, make phone calls, set up the schedule, etc.
Of course, feel free to encourage any and all folks that you know to come down and help out, whether at meetings or at the event itself.
More questions? Contact volunteers {at} albuquerque-minimakerfaire.com

Save Those Gallon Milk Jugs!

As always, we need 100s of gallon milk jugs (the plastic kind) for ammunition for the trebuchet. Be sure to save ‘em and bring ‘em to our meetings later this Summer!

Participants in this year’s Mini Maker Faire appear on KASA Fox 2

Check out one of our board members, our Intel liaison, and a Maker during their TV appearance.
