Big thanks to Nathan Grayston for putting together this promo video for us!
There’s something very cool going on at Techworks this weekend… The Saskatoon Combat Robotics Club (aka Kilobots) is upgrading their arena with various improvements including ready/tap-out switches and arena hazards!
What’s that? You didn’t know Saskatoon had a combat robotics club? Well now you do! Interested in building a robot to compete? Head on over to their site for more details.
Thank-you to everyone who visited us at Cameco Spectrum 2013. We were overwhelmed by the amount of interest in the group and look forward to meeting those of you who decide to come visit our shop. We will be announcing the winners of our raffle soon! Check out some pictures from the event on our flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/65022721@N02/sets/72157632584207163/
Just a reminder that the best way to reach us is via IRC as most of our members (including all of our directors) hang out in IRC around the clock. We are in channel #SKTechWorks on irc.freenode.net. You can join us using the IRC link above or with your favorite IRC client. Feel free to drop in if you have any questions or just want to chat!

Come out to tonight’s meeting (7pm, 422 44th St E) to see the rest! Everyone is welcome!
This month’s meeting will mark our first at the new location. While we are still officially located on 20th St, we did take early possession of our new location so we thought it would be a good idea to host this month’s meeting there. The new address is 422 44th St E (just off of Faithfull Ave). The meeting will be at our usual time, 7pm. Everyone is welcome to come check out the new space during this time!
Also, for current members, we will be asking that you return your fob some time this month so that we can get our deposits back from the 220. No word yet on when we’ll be officially moved in to the new place, but we should have a better answer to that on Tuesday at the meeting.
Yes, that’s right! Effective November 1st, we will no longer be located at the 220. While this was a great starting location for us, in order to grow ourselves as a hackerspace we feel that it’s time to move on. We’re actually getting possession of our new space on October 1st, so we’ll be busy moving for most of October.
We’ll be sharing the exact location of our new space shortly, but for now here are some of the basic details:
- North Industrial area
- direct entry
- overhead door
- roughly the same square footage as our location at the 220
We are very excited about the space as it opens up many new possibilities for us (i.e. welding, etc). Stay tuned for more updates as we start to move in!
