The Sunday preparation event went great!
Cassady helped shuck batteries (outside since it was a dangerous job)
Matt donated some bike lights I think
Alex designed a battery holder from PVC tubing
Michael heroically sorted through a giant pile of LED remote controllers,
tested them and soldered battery connectors to them
Alessandra wired up EIGHT little xmas light strings to batteries
Peter and Alex built TEN battery packs and wired them up
Marco tested the addressible lights and labeled them (we have tons!)
I did stuff too.
Who is available to help with the event on Wednesday? We're going to need
lot of volunteers, apparently our instagram post got picked up by East Bay
Party which has 16,000 members.....

OK the event is set for Weds Sep 7 2022 from 5PM-11PM
We are going to meet tomorrow at 1pm (Sunday) in Sudoroom to prepare
so that Wednesday goes smoothly (in case anyone shows up)
Here is the text I sent to the East Bay Bike Party facebook group:
FREE: Light Up Your Ride for the Bike Party!
Wanna trick out your bike with LED lights for the Friday Sept. 9 ride?
Sudoroom Hackerspace (at Omni Commons) is having an LED lighting workshop
time for the next Bike Party!
Bring your bike, your curiosity and your enthusiasm to Omni Common’s Bike
Mutation Station, and we’ll help you get your bike lighting super snazzy
the ride: we’ve got helpers, workspace, soldering and hot glue, and
tape and strings that we can help help you attach to your bike.
If you’re got spare LED light strings or tape, even broken ones or
even just simple bike safety lights you want to fix or install, bring them
the event to use or to share!
This is a family-friendly activity, biking families are heartily invited.
WHAT: Sudoroom’s Bike Mutation Station - Light Up Your Ride
WHEN; Weds Sep 7 2022 from 5PM-11PM
WHERE: Omni Commons, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland, CA 94609
HOW: Bring your bike and any parts / lights you may already have.
COST: Free, although donations to the Omni Commons gofundme are gladly
our goal for this event is to pull lots more people into the Omni and
to grow our community! and we're going to have to put in a bunch of work
make it happen but i think it will be fun

This sounds great! Thank you Jake for the
initiative! I'm copying
Omni's events list so they are aware of this plan. It would be helpful
if the dates and times could be settled soon-ish since we are talking
about highly shared and multiuse spaces.
It would also be really helpful if Sudoers could use this opportunity
to help fix up the entrance hall. Currently there is still a large
pile of trash that nobody is sure what to do with, and a broken pew
that could use repair to make it safe to sit on again.
There will be a play rehearsal in the disco room on Wednesday and
Thursday nights from 6-10pm but they should be ok, we've had busy
events during their rehearsals before.
