- CORE Meeting Schedule
CORE will now be meeting once a month at 6pm on the 1st Tuesday of the month.
(co)space has taken over more space and is making money on rent.
Board working on getting more summer students for 2017
YuKonstruct got CANNOR funding
Bob is doing a survey of teachers to help Mary Ellen develop the requirements for a partnership with Education
A new pricing proposal is in the works
Van Slam is happening in May (see forum for more)
Monster Love craft party with SMRT Pop Ups will be at Baked this Thursday Feb. 9 (details)
@Adria is working on a kids camp for spring break
The Liquor Corp. is requiring YuKonstruct to get a liquor license. Members can still drink beer at the makerspace but for the moment, Beer O'clock will no longer be a promoted event. The Board is working on getting a license for YuKonstruct and (co)space.
Firebean Coffee is now sponsoring YuKonstruct! There will soon be free coffee at the space. There is a new coffee grinder and filters and fixings will be stocked. People prefer unbleached filters. Read the blog post.
There was some discussion about getting a makerspace cat to take care of the mice. Would require someone to be responsible for the cat. Allergies might be a concern for some members (although there is already many allergens in the space - dog dander, dust, mouse poop, chemicals, etc)
