Subject: [hackspacebristol] Once a month idea

Hi there folks.

I had fun talking to some people who just turned up and wanted to find out a bit more.  they were pretty excited and it seemed like they were up for signing up right away.  Fingers crossed.

I have an idea I have wanted to do for a while.  Basically, I am an instructables fan, like a lot of us are I'm sure.  I get the email and there are always things I'd like to do but for many procrastinating reasons I don't do them.

Is there any interest in setting up a once a month project night?  Where we take a smallish project that is manageable in a few hours, pre-planned so we have the required bits and bobs and have collected all the tools required to put it together.  

We could try to make things that enhance the hackspace in some way, shelves?   a disco ball that spins when someone tweets the doorbell?  a bookshelf for around the new space with laser cut brackets?    I recently did some silicone casting of nuts and bolts and made chocolate nuts and bolts.  They even thread together!  Maybe not hackspace relevant but not previously in my skill set.  Just for fun.

Everyone could submit an idea for something to be done and we could vote on it.  This would bring together different skill sets and help others catch up on other skills sets.  

Obviously, as I'm suggesting it I would take on most of the organising it but would need some help and support, especially where the project is geek heavy.  The costs would be project dependent.

Thanks for reading.  

Michelle ;)
