Michael Catlin We should start having some activity on the Facebook page. I found it and shared it on my page as well as recommending it to some of my friends.

If you have friends on Facebook try recommending it to them and if you find informantion of interest post it to the Facebook page to create activity.

Michael Catlin Hopefully it's not the second Tuesday, Third Thursday or Second Monday. On a different subject, I got an E-mail from Vic who was at the meeting yesterday and it appears that I copied his address down incorrectly. I have some files for him but the e-mail comes back as a delivery failure. Hopefully, someone can contact Vic and let him know to e-mail me (he has my address).

jesse I spoke with the folks over at Knoxmakers and we will be folding this club into the knoxmakers group. The attendance of the Knox Area Robotics club has been declining for quite some time. This move will give us more exposure to like minded people that want to build cool stuff. You do not have to be a member of Knoxmakers to attend the meetings but a Knoxmakers member does need to be present during the meetings and they will need to act as a 'sponsor' for the group. Joe Pardue has graciously volunteered to take on that roll. There is a big benefit to being a member in that you get access to awesome tools and a big workspace. They have a laser cutter, 3d printer, cnc router, and a bunch of other awesome things I can't think of at the moment.

Knoxmakers will be moving into a new store front in Knoxville Center mall sometime in July. This means that our meetings will move from ITT to Knoxville Center after they are settled in. I think we can probably plan on having our August meeting there but that may change depending on how their move goes.

Another big change will be in the meeting date. We currently meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. That day will probably need to change to accommodate events that are already happening at that time. We will be looking to Joe and the board at Knoxmakers to help us figure out an optimal time to host our reoccurring meetings.

We are extremely appreciative to Knoxmakers, Joe, and Butch for helping with this transition. It's a great opportunity for everyone concerned!

Butch Alline To each his own. I like Herculex because it is more compact, full duplex, better docs, and is cheaper.
