Join us for a Saturday afternoon at Hammerspace to build your own unique 18" tall D20 storage
chest! Because everyone needs a Meta storage solution for there game collection!

The finished D20 chest is 16" tall and made from high quality Baltic Birch plywood. It looks great
raw, or you can paint & finish to match the giant D20 of your dreams!

During this class we'll talk about how a project is set up for production by CNC, and than YOU
will use one of the Hammerspace CNC machines to engrave the numbers onto the faces of your
D20. Then we will use custom designed assembly jigs and 3D printed brackets to assemble
your engraved faces into a finished giant dice.

We will be operating CNC power tools, using Drill/Drivers, and sandpaper. Please wear closed
toe shoes and clothes you are comfortable getting dusty in.

Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 6:30:00 PM District. Pour House + Kitchen 7122 Wornall, Kansas City, MO

We're having a social get-together for the WordPress 15th anniversary. We will be on the patio at District Pour House + Kitchen at 6:30pm!

---------

Today is WordPress's Birthday!

Let's celebrate! - use #wp15 on all the social media platform to join in the discussion.

Come one, come all.

This Meetup is not a formal training or help session... It is literally at a bar for the purpose of consuming beverages with conversation and networking. If you have questions or topics you would like to discuss, bring them along and brainstorm with other WordPress geeks - but leave that laptop at home. This isn't the right event for help diving into the dashboard or backend.

Be ready to move around and mingle... and please be prepared to purchase a beverage or a bite. We want the bars and breweries to enjoy our visits

Also, come ready to introduce yourself to other WordPress enthusiasts, discuss your website and share your wisdom!

In this Sunday afternoon's class, we'll be building and flying Estes model rockets while learning
about the physics that makes a rocket go! It's an awesome afternoon of construction, science
and flight!
Children will need an adult assistant to help with construction and launch. We will be using glue
scissors and paint. For the truly adventurous, we can talk about rocket modifications and
customization!
The class will be rain or shine. Hopefully we will be able to launch outside, but if not we'll open
one of the big workshop garage doors and launch out into the parking lot!
In this 3 hour class we will:
● The Basics of rocketry and propulsion
● Building our rockets
● Launch!
If you are not a member of Hammerspace, please arrive a few minutes early so we can cover
some basic safety topics.

Class Fee: $40 per rocket
Open to both HammerSpace members AND non-members!
