Kansas City's original grass-roots mini Maker Faire is returning again this year as part of Parkville Day's Riverfest, August 19 - 21.
We have our work ahead of us as flooding along the Missouri River is expected to continue into August. Plans are being made in the event we need to move to higher ground.
"Double the black powder?" "Why yes that should work."
Steve is inviting us to his home for a build night. Starting at
For directions call Steve at 913.549.6338.
June is our annual build fireworks. John has put together a kit to make 'The Flying Fish Mine'. The kit is $5.00 for everything you need except the black powder. He has 50 kits so get more than one if you want to have them for the Forth-of-July.
When you go down to Parkville check in at the American Legion for a volunteer tag. The AL is next to Stone Canyon as you turn toward the tracks. The tag lets you into the sandbag areas.
We need to pick up several of the power wheel cars and help move chemicals and product upstairs.
If anyone knows how to reach Nic and Gustave we would like for them to get the lumber out.
No tools are needed but it is hot work. Dress accordingly and bring an ice chest with cool liquids to drink.
Updated information over the last 24 hours has caused us to cancel our Show & Tell session as a precaution to prepare for flooding in the low lying areas of Parkville. John Kuhns was scheduled for a major portion of our presentations but his time will be better spent moving items out of the HMS Beagle store's basement.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
The business meeting should not take long and we can jump back on to the Power Wheels.
We are continuing the Power Wheel builds until we get some entries done.
So add what you need and what you are bringing.
Tom and Steve are able to make the switch!
Kansas City's Maker community is gearing up for a busy summer. This month's Show & Tell provides a look at some of the activities that include programming for kids, competitive robotics teams, and Power Wheels racing events. We even hope to get a brief introduction to welding for Makers and hobbyists.
Also, please note we're making a time change this month from 7:00 to 9:00 pm to give everyone a little more time to get here.
