We're getting as many of the volunteers together to discuss logistics of the Maker Faire during setup and the event. We'll be deciding roles, and discussing duties.

Makers and Sponsors may also attend and have their questions answered.

While working on getting the ShopBot up and running, we took some quick video of it drawing out it's name on cardboard.

Making some pretty good progress on the space. Might actually be able to start using this place as a real live makerspace in a few weeks!

Going to try and finish building the electronics workbenches and maybe even start on the machine room design.

Also, Sparkfun was in town for CES and dropped off some awesome schwag, namely about a dozen beer glasses. Come claim yours before it is too late!

Do you want to participate in the Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire as a maker, a sponsor or volunteer? Are you a curious bystander who wants to know more and see where you might fit in?

Come down to SYN Shop on Saturday, January 5th at 5:00 PM to meet with your Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire Community Team. We'll answer questions and detail our plan of attack for the first Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire coming up on February 2nd.

Unless you've been under a rock, you've probably heard that Las Vegas is getting its own Mini Maker Faire.

Tickets are now available and we will be offering an early bird discount until January 10th, 2013. You can buy yours from our EventBrite Page:

Time to talk about the amazing thing that happened this weekend...

It feels like I have been waiting forever and it's crazy to know that everyone else has been waiting five times longer than I have... but finally, FINALLY the keys were given over to us and the SYN Shop is for the most part, ALIVE and open.
