Our first Meetup of the year came and went with little and few in attendance.  But then given the snap frost, snow and ice, we can hardly blame you.  By the time we all left the ground was quite treacherous and the roads only just drivalbe (rideable in the case of one antendee, hope you got home safe Andy).

Though few in number, we got a fair bit discussed, from Christmas blues, electronic wizardry and sound systems, ideas for inventions, Kickstarter (The good, the bad, the bizarre), as well as more practical matters and future events.

We are happy to announce out monthly WordPress MeetUp is a go, as is Boardgame night to add to our ongoing line up of events.  Details of both can be found on our MeetUps calendar over the next few days, along with a blog post here either Thursday or Friday.

Also, we are open to suggestions for events!

Thats right, we want to hear from you.  We want events and we want to make them relevant to our members, so tell us what you want to see and we’ll do our best to make the events happen (both before and after we get a space up and running).

We know a few people have expressed an interest in learning more about Linux and we are currently looking for some one to teach a basic class and run a local MeetUp to get the ball rolling.  If you or someone you know would like to join such a group (or Teach it), let us know through our Contact Page and we will make arrangements.

In the mean time we hope the new year is treating you well so far and hope to see you all again soon.  Until then, get making.
