After talking with some of the regulars here in the PDX area we have determined that meeting for food isn't the best way to show off new projects, teach each other how to solder properly (show us Jedi master!) and test/swap things.. SO

 

I am proposing a regular (monthly) get together in the Portland area. I have put together a poll that asks the important questions. Please answer if you are within a local vicinity where you could actually attend regular meetings monthly.

 

This will not be a reboot of PUNN (whatever that stood for)  we'll come up with a new name if it gets to that.

 

Thanks!

Greg

I'd be pretty flexible time wise.

... PUNN (whatever that stood for)  

 

I thought it stood for Portland User's of Ninety Nines.  Of course I was only able to attend one PUNN meeting back in the day.  I did manage to make it to more than a few NOVA meeting in Vancouver though.

 

It sounds like a lot of fun, but sadly I do not think I could regularly make it to monthly meetings.  I've already scheduled the 28th of April off though, so I'll be there for that.

There's a poll we are in the process of figuring that out.

so I see the results here as:

5 people

SW area

Evening on a weekend

 

I will work on securing a suitable meeting space, worst case the clubhouse at my condo is available (right by a max stop) with a large tv for presentations.

Well distance is a issue for me, 

I may need a ride it that meeting is to far out like Tigard or Beverton or Hillsboro.

 

I do after all live in Vancouver Washington, that would be a hell of a bus ride and could not bring any equipment.

Nod understandable. I'm in the same boat the other direction :)  If you can get to the max you could ride it over though..

It is tough as we have families and other responsibilities, no one wants to waste time in transit.

Maybe when we get our act together, we can share agenda in advance.

so I've looked into

 

- my neighborhood clubhouse $250 deposit!, bigscreen tv

- the Beaverton Library  $150 deposit! various tvs

- my office downtown pdx no deposit, projector available on weekends likely, also has pinball ;) 

 

still working on other ideas for westside..

Hey All! :-)

Happy Rasberry Pi Day!!!

 

I would be willing to go to a local high school (Beaverton High School) and see if we could "borrow" a room,...though, it would more than likely have to be on a weekend. 

I am not sure that a "public" school can "legally" charge/rent for use-of-space, but, anyway; it MIGHT be a possibility.

As a high school as a "meeting place" for the group, maybe closer to downtown Portland would be a better choice.

 

When we were "PUNN", there was a place that was right off Capitol Hwy, in South Portland (Multnomah County).  It was more "central"  that Beaverton or Aloha or Lake Oswego (which were other locations we met.  That place (off Capitol Hwy.) is some form of "educatioal community center" now.  It offers classes to people of any age (I think) and has multiple "class rooms".  I will check it out this week and see if we might be able to locate there.

Senior centers, Grange Halls and even sometimes Fire Departments have available rooms of a decent size.

Hey All! ;-)

Any word yet on if AND when we 're going to do this?  Just wondered if anyone was going to do any "presentations' too, like at FW 18 --->  I would really like to learn more about my Gotek device and how it works

Hello,

I'll be visiting Portland from May 25-30. If there happened to be a TI meetup, I will do my best to bring my projects to demo.

Lucky TI'ers!  It must be nice having a concentrated group in your general area so you can enjoy frequent gatherings.   With me living out in the boonies, I'd spend the same amount of time on the road going to and from as I'd get to spend at the meeting.  :(

BEWARE, I LIVE!

 

Count me as going!  :)  It'll take me 70 minutes to get out to the library from home and takes three buses.  It can take 55 minutes less if I am arriving at noon instead of 1pm.  Anyone interested in meeting ahead of time for lunch?

I wonder how many people in the Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia area there are that might be interested in this sort of thing too?  Either way it sucks for me being smack dab in the middle and in the toolies too.
