Hello from South Florida
« on: November 07, 2012, 08:18:22 PM »
Hello all,


I'm from the North Palm Beach area and I'm looking into starting a makerspace of some sort in NPB with a few coworkers. We're looking to visit nearby makerspaces to see what we're getting ourselves into and FamiLAB is the next closest after The Learned Nerd which we just visited a few weeks ago. I know there's usually an open house at the beginning of each month, but we're likely going to be in the Orlando area around Thanksgiving time and was wondering if it would be possible to stop by for a short bit since it's a bit of a drive (3 hours each way, ooof!) to make it up on a normal open house day. Any opportunity to see the space and talk to folks about what it is like to setup and run a space like you have would be awesome.


Cheers,
Pierre

Talk to me anytime at PockyBum522@gmail.com and let me know what days you'll be up here. I'm about half an hour away from the space and I'd be more than happy to give you a tour and show you what we're up to.


Thanks for your interest!

Just curious if you were still interested in visiting, as it's shortly after turkey day and I haven't gotten an email, just wanted to make sure it didn't end up in spam. Thanks!

Hey! I am indeed still interested. I got sick this past week unfortunately and have been completely out of commission, so I'll have to try and figure out when I can make it up there in the future. I'll definitely be in touch!

Hello again!


I'm going to be in the Orlando area in a week (from the 12th to the 16th) for a conference (SLAS 2013) and was wondering if it would still be possible to stop by FamiLAB during that time. I noticed there's a Micro Monday on the 14th at 8pm, but I dont think I can make it there Monday night. If possible, I could stop by the evening of the 13th, evening of the 15th or during the day on the 16th. 


I'm going to be meeting with a group of hackers/makers at the end of the month in Palm Beach (http://www.meetup.com/south-florida-hack-and-tell/events/94173342/) to discuss the possibility of starting a local makerspace and it would be great to see what you guys are doing in Orlando before then as a point of reference and to show everyone down here.


Thanks
