Recap on Make-O-Rama

It was good, we got one new sign up. We sold a tea-shit, and got a $50 donation. Though we Really Really need to work harder on advertising the event. Clif will post a draft event checklist, and Kassie will work on a greeter checklist. Greeters should have shifts, and work harder to get more sign-ups. We had some new ideas for Bobs Wall O video. Like EMS advertisements.


Clif, showed the space to our potential insurance agent today, which went well. He thinks we are still on track for a premium of around $50 / mo, and by the middle of next week we should have a concrete number. We might want to upgrade our safety tag system.We should have a laminated checklist behind each dangerous tool.

James's event idea

Hands on is important and fun! How about a power tool races? Anyway the point is to have lots more hands on events.

Future Events

Monthly Talks? One of our members wants to do a talk about sketch up, though he would like to charge for it. Lets be a venue for classes and talks by anyone. Perhaps we can get a table at the Myth-Busters roadshow. San Mateo Maker Faire. is coming up, should we have a table?

Other topics of discussion:

Fund Raising, what goals should we set to fund raise around? We could get a plastic LYMAN filament extrude, Or we could buy some misc Adriano sensors for projects.

Action Items:


  • Work on greeter check list.
  • Get fire extinguisher re-tagged.


  • Email Discuss list about maker faire and mini-maker faire


  • Post draft event checklist.


  • Wants to work on fund raising ideas.


  • Contact Space Federation on what buckets to place donations into.
