That’s right. July 20th and I will look at picking up a few in August as well. Just checking some dates on my side at the moment.
@marketing some social media action would be great for tonight’s open evening.
Luke is hosting, and would likely welcome a co host.
Lanyards and flyers are in the blue box file on the shelf by the social area
@ Members anyone able to pair up with me on Wednesday? I haven’t hosted before and would be good to be with someone who has.
Count me in!
Could you edit yourself into the rota?
It’s been tweeted and FB’d
I’ve told FB fans to search for this and say hello to this little guy
Ah…it’s open evening again tomorrow…and we need hosts!
I know it’s a bit last minute, but we really need someone to step forward and host this.
I’ll do it.
I’ll send you a private message, give me a minute
You have shutter access
All good. We are open for business.
We had 6 visitors in total:
Nico, Michael, Dave and Duncan, all interested in woodworking so @woodtechs expect a nudge.
Local girl Karen, who had been walking by since the The Good Companion café days, finally decided to pop in and kindly left a bag of electronic goodies including arduino, breadboard and sensors which I plan to sort tomorrow evening.
Last through the doors came Annika Richterich from Maastricht University working on “Hacking and Making” research. She asked this link be sent around for anyone wishing to contribute:
She also brought us some dutch salt caramel chocolate.
Visitors noticed the space is very tidy and cosy so well done all involved.
I’ve heard members say they are worried about too many people coming into the space in the past, but thought they were wrong because they were talking more generally, but I think there is some serious merit to the idea that wood working could instantly become over capacity with the numbers wanting it.
Props to you for stepping up and taking care of this, and for taking the time to write it up, it’s always good to hear how it went.
Did you put the rubbish out? I realise we didn’t mention that.
No problem and yes, done following hosting guide How to host Open Evening
