This Tuesday is shaping up to be a Super Tuesday! Tuesdays at 8:00pm are our regular meeting times, but this Tuesday, 4/12/11, we’re throwing in a Sumo-bot throw-down, and a Yuri’s Night Celebration.
What: LVL1 Tuesday Meeting, Yuri’s Night Celebration, and Sumo-bot throw-down!
When: Tuesday, April 12th, 2011
Where: The LVL1 Hackerspace, 814 East Broadway, Entrance on the rear alley
For visitors, our regular meetings usually consist of 30 minutes of talking about LVL1 business, events, and miscellany, followed by building, hacking, making and general mayhem, extending well into the night. This Tuesday, however, we’ll be celebrating Yuri’s Night, a world-wide party commemorating the 50th anniversary of mankind first slipping the surly bonds of earth, and extending our reach into space.
LVL1 will be hosting members of the Louisville Astronomical Society for some urban star gazing, and we’ll be trying to listen for the ARRISat, an amateur radio satellite currently attached to the International Space Station, transmitting just for Yuri’s Night, before it becomes fully armed and operational later this year.
In addition, almost a dozen members of the LVL1 community have been working on Sumo-bots for the upcoming tournament at Hive13, Cincinnati’s hackerspace. We’ve got enough bots running around here for our own tournament, so we’ll be doing exposition matches all evening, building, testing and tweaking our sumos!
Come one, come all to LVL1 this Tuesday at 8:00pm. Anyone and everyone is always welcome.
