Our Second Meeting - Sunday, July 1st


Our Second Meeting - Sunday, July 1st

I bumped into Norm Bruce, part of the Business Improvement District in Waukesha, and Waukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima last night at downtown Waukesha's Friday Night Live. Norm recently toured Bucketworks and saw first hand all of the great stuff going on there. He sang our praises to Mr. Scrima, and has extended the Spring City Launchpad group an invitation to use his bookstore on Main St. to hold our monthly meetings, as well as to position ourselves (and perhaps a table or booth, or...?) outside his shop during Friday Night Live events, which usually draw a few thousand people and would be a great opportunity for us to introduce our group to many people.

I propose having our second meeting at 2:00pm on Sunday, July 1st. Norm's bookstore is:

Martha Merrell's Books & Cafe
231 West Main Street
Waukesha, WI 53186

What do you all think? Is this an acceptable venue for our meetings? Does this date and time work?

Just in case the meeting does not happen Sunday, I'd love to invite anyone interested in 3D printing to our meetup happening at 1pm at UWM:


I am planning on coming to the meeting this Sunday.

Haven't heard much of anything of late, but I am still interested.

Hope to see you there.



Hello to all,

Yes, I'm also planning being there on Sunday and looking forward talking more about this.  I'll see if I can bring some others with me as well.




I will be there as well. Do you know if he has a projector? I can bring one, too. Is there a wall or screen surface we could use?
