Not as much drastic progress on the new space today, however we did a good bit to fix the drop ceiling in the common room. We’re waiting on landlord approval to remove and rebuild a couple small walls in order to close off a small room.
Day 2 at the new space. Tonight we cleaned out all the sheet rock we brought down yesterday and then we pulled up all the carpet.
We signed the lease today and we’ve already started making our changes. The biggest thing we need to do before we start moving stuff in is take down the walls we want to take down. We made a lot of progress tonight. We will be up at the new space likely every night this week working.
We’re still going to have a big move day, we’re still not sure exactly when that will be but we’ll announce it when we know.
Attention! We are looking for a few good men and women to help spread the word about the Midsouth Makers this Labor Day weekend. The goal is simple – put up as many Midsouth Makers QR flyers as you can, and tweet about them using the knowledge you gained from our Twitter class. You can pick up QR flyers at the space or you can print off your own using this link.
Once you have your flyers, you must perform the following steps:
- Go to a public location
- Get permission to put up a flyer
- Take a picture of the flyer you placed
- Tweet your picture @MidsouthMakers, or tag your tweeted picture with the following hashtag: #MMContest
The person with the highest number of unique locations where they have placed signs will be declared the winner, with unique locations being indicated by unique tweeted images. To encourage you to fight the good fight, we’re going to offer the following rewards:
1st Place: MidsouthMakers Stein & 1 Free Workshop Pass
2nd Place: MidsouthMakers Pint Glass & 1 Free Workshop Pass
3rd Place: MidsouthMakers Rocks Glass & 1 Free Workshop Pass
Not so fast, recruit! While on this assignment, you must obey the following rules:
- You must have permission to place flyers at the location. No sneaky business!
- You must tag the image with @MidsouthMakers and #MMContest
- This contest will occur Labor Day weeked (Sept 3rd, 4th, & 5th)
- If the enemy captures you, you must tell them all about us and our operation!
- All prizes will be given away at the Sept. 9th meeting at Republic Coffee.
- Don’t forget to bring tape to put up flyers!
Good luck, and remember – no guts, no glory! Now move out!
Our next board meeting will be Monday May 9th at 7ish PM at the space. Any paid member is more than welcome to join us. Our board meeting format is a bit more formal than our regular meetings but don’t let that dissuade you from joining us if you’d like. The current agenda looks to be a lot of event planning discussion. If you’d like to help or have any ideas or if you’d be able to teach a class, feel free to stop by the board meeting and let us know. If you’re unable to make the board meeting and have some ideas about events or anything else, feel free to email the firstname.lastname@example.org
