    • I think we need to have a flyer by this weekend. Maybe Sat. go around hanging some up. --JimShoe 09:50, 28 October 2008 (CDT)
    • Being listed in Valley Planet, next issue goes out right before Open House.
    • PSA is being recorded Wed.
      • Transcript: Do you like to Tinker? Does your concept of “Hacking” reach beyond just software? You might be part of a burgeoning movement of “Makers.” Part “gear-head”, inventor, techie, and artist with a dash of mad scientist. Maker’s Local #256 has recently formed to support those urges. We will be hosting an open house and “Junk-Box Swap-Meet” November 15th from noon-4. Come meet the gang, while you swap motor’s and modems, pulleys and printers for wires and winches, relays and rheostats. But please . . . no CRT’s. 3409 Governor’s Drive, a little blue house across from the Inergi Building. ###-####""--JimShoe 09:50, 28 October 2008 (CDT)
    • Print up some more Tri-Fold flyers.
    • Print some more Business cards.
  • Do we need a sign?
    • It was something Chris Dayton brought up to me. He also offered to help make one. I personally think it would be a good idea for open houses, but not as an everyday thing, as this would imply a business like environment. --JimShoe 09:50, 28 October 2008 (CDT)
