The purpose of this day is to build as many functional machines as possible, so we can place them with as many children as we can.

    Time: 9 am to 2 pm
    Food: Yes, we'll feed ya.

    Hi Gang! Thanks for all your thoughts and best wishes. We had an incredibly successful day. Got 13 towers built, and several more closer to ready. We had 23 show up out of a possible 29, ate until we felt fat, and had an all-in-all great time.

    We had a 16 year old boy building towers side-by-side with his mom. We had my mother doing installation. We had my father-in-law up to his elbows in cases learning from a tech guy we'd never met face-to-face.

    It was great to see Jack, one of the LoCo guys. The day could have only been better by the presence of the rest of you guys. But, it looks as though we'll put together another build day sometime in July, and hopefully you can participate then.

    Thanks for making this day successful, everyone!

    I'm so glad it went well! I was supposed to be there but we had a minor emergency here that morning and I couldn't get away from the house... but I'm very much looking forward to the next one. I was there "in spirit" though!
