Join us Friday July 16th for burgers and boardgames! $10 for a burger, chips, and a pop. Burgers will be served at 6pm. Games start at 7pm. (No charge if you only show up for games.) This event is open to members and non-members alike. We have a number of board games enthusiasts so you are likely to find some games available to play that you have never seen before. If you have an interesting game, feel free to bring it.
Please let me know if you plan to come for burgers so I can make sure I have enough: firstname.lastname@example.org
See you there!
As of May 28, the Saskatchewan government has eased restrictions as part of Step One of the Re-opening Roadmap. This will allow up to 30 people for public indoor gatherings, as long as two metres distance can be maintained between individuals. With this, we should be able to host public hack nights and workshops again. No workshops are currently planned, but if you have any suggestions or would like to host some yourself, please contact the board at email@example.com to make arrangements.
All other restrictions remain in place, including masking, maintaining 2 metres distance, and staying home if you feel ill or suspect you may have recently been exposed to SARS-CoV-2.
UPDATED AGAIN: Due to recent Saskatchewan Health guidelines, as of November 27th masks are mandatory in TechWorks at all times.
In order to facilitate contact tracing, everyone attending this space MUST either scan their RFID card at the door or sign the guest book.
A message from the board of directors:
The situation around the current pandemic is continually evolving and the well-being of our members and community is our priority. As the Government and local business begin re-opening for business, and keeping safety and health in mind, we would like to announce the following changes to our current COVID-19 protocols:
As of Monday, June 15, 2020, the space will once again be open to the public. Hack nights are back on and guests are welcome as long as social/physical distancing practices are followed.
We’re limiting the number of people allowed in the space at one time to help maintain social distancing recommendations. If you do have a project you would like to work on, please coordinate with other members to limit the number of people in the space at one time to 15. Please be respectful of each other’s time and space, keep a distance of 2m between yourself and other members.
We have signs up around the space describing how to appropriately wash your hands and have kleenex and sanitizer available. Please use the available resources and keep yourself and others safe.
If You Have Symptoms
Please do not enter the space, go home and practice self-isolation.
Workshops are back on with some restrictions to allow for social distancing practices. Please check back for upcoming workshops!
At our AGM in March, we gave our vision for growth for this fiscal year. Little did we know that a few short days later the world would come to a grinding halt and stay that way for months. While we haven’t been able to pursue any growth, we were able to stay in limited operation and remain in a safe financial position. Our sincere thanks to all of you who have continued your membership throughout this difficult time. It is because of you that we will continue to have a makerspace as we emerge from the pandemic restrictions.
As I write this, there is no clear plan for when we might be able to re-open our weekly open door nights. Since community has always been a strong point at Saskatoon TechWorks, we hope to maintain some of that by hosting “Virtual Hack Nights” on Zoom. Watch the “events” page for links each week to our Zoom meeting. Whether or not you are an active member, please join us. Show us something you have been working on. Or, simply hang out with us.
I hope to see you “there.”
The situation that we are currently facing together is unprecedented and the well-being of our members and community is our priority. Here are the adjustments we are making for the short term:
As of Thursday, March 19, 2020, the space will be closed to the public. As a result, hack night (Tuesday “Open Door”) is cancelled until further notice.
We are limiting the number of people allowed in the space at one time to help maintain social distancing recommendations. If you do have a project you would like to work on, please coordinate with other members to limit the number of people in the space at one time to 6. Please be respectful of each others’ time and space. Keep a distance of 2 metres between yourself and other members.
We have signs up around the space describing how to appropriately wash your hands and have tissues and sanitizer available. Please use the available resources and keep yourself and others safe.
If You Have Symptoms
Please do not enter the space. Go home and practice self-isolation.
Until further notice workshops at the space are unavailable. We are looking into the possibility of hosting online workshops and are welcome to your ideas!
New information is available to us every day. With that information, we are making decisions to support the safety and well-being of our members. We will continue to update you as the situation changes.
