  • The Boy Scouts have a rule: “Always leave the campground cleaner than you found it.” If you find a mess on the ground, you clean it up regardless of who might have made the mess. You intentionally improve the environment for the next group of campers. The original rule was written by Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, the father of scouting: “Try and leave this world a little better than you found it.”


Safety Note

  • Turn your Attention to Accident Prevention

Rule and Regulation of the Week

  • Guest Policy - Members can bring two guests (10 years of age minimum) to the Makerspace. (Looking for stuff for kids to do?) All guests must sign the guest liability waiver. Note that members must supervise their guests at all times. No leaving a guest in the Wood Shop while you walk off to work in the Electronics Lab, etc. Guests are prohibited from using any electrical or heavy machinery, so table saws, the forklift, and even power hand tools are prohibited. Guests are permitted to use non-powered hand tools.

Member Topics and Announcements

  • Tuesday night is trash and housekeeping night. The dumpster is hungry; feed it!
  • The vacuums on the other hand frequently are over-full. Please help them out by emptying them.
  • Please turn out the lights and check to make sure the 3 gas tanks in the welding area are shut off (lefty loosey, righty tighty). Thank you!
  • Meeting Adjourns
