Ever driven a nail into a tire, just so you could practice fixing it? Me neither, but we’ll be doing just that, this Saturday, December 12th! Class space is limited, so RSVP ASAP.
This class (entitled “Coup-fourré!”) is for non-greasemonkeys. If you’ve ever been stranded with a dead battery or a flat tire, come to i3Detroit and learn the skills that’ll get you moving again. We’ll practice simple tire repairs, read trouble-codes from our cars’ computers, and learn how not to blow ourselves up with jumper cables. Full details are on the event registration page.
As with all classes at i3Detroit, non-members are welcome. Donations will help offset our costs, $5-10 is suggested.
With winter weather in full swing, you could wait a long time for a tow truck. After practicing these basics, you might not need one! See you Saturday?
At last week’s meeting, we moved to amend the bylaws so that meetings are on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. The Board met afterward and adopted the amendment, and it’s done!
Tonight, therefore, we will do no official business. All are welcome, members and guests alike, to hang out and do whatever. Get here!
After some safety-related upgrades to Nick’s cupcake car, some new folks set aside their fears of grave bodily harm long enough to take it for a spin. Fourth in the seat was Russ, i3Detroit’s founder, who was letting some traffic pass when a Royal Oak Police patrol car cruised up…
Filmed at roughly midnight, the video’s a little dark, but the lights in the sprinkles really make the cupcake stand out. The first car (the one we’re all hollering “CAR! CAR!” about) blows right past, and then it gets interesting!
Been looking for an excuse to drop by the space? Bring a friend, meet some members, and hang out for as much of the evening as you’d like!
Members and visitors, take note — a bunch more events have been scheduled for the coming days, pass the word! The quick rundown:
