On Saturday December 26th, i3 Detroit will be hosting the i3 Winter Social event, beginning at 7pm and ending when the sun comes up.

The event will be a BYOC (Bring your own computer) or game. We have a fridge full of soft drinks, but please bring your own snacks! 18 and over only, please.

The classroom section of our space will be set up for computer gaming, with plenty of power, tables, and chairs. The shop will have a projector for Rockband and space for tabletop games. The loft will be used for relaxing, of course, and also console gaming. Got a vintage console you can bring? Leave a comment!

Lock picking for Fun Saturday evening with Pumping Station:One

psoneSo what are you planning on doing this Saturday? Well you are coming out to i3 Detroit to hang out with the members from Chicago’s very own Pumping Station: One. A crew of approx. 8 members from Pumping Station: One are heading out this Saturday to spend a day and evening with everyone at i3 Detroit. Their very own Eric Michaud will be teaching a class on lock picking for fun from 8pm-10pm this coming Saturday. If you are interested in taking the class please sign up on the i3 Detroit websites class page. Also if you just want to come and hang out with the members from i3 Detroit and the great people from Pumping Station: One you are welcome to do that as well. If you have a project that you want to work on in the space bring it, if you want to hang out a chat or bounce ideas around that is ok too.

We hope to see everyone come out and meet the crew from Pumping Station: One or maybe you have not been to i3 Detroit yet and have been wanting to check it out. This would be a great weekend to do this. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Review: Intro to Screen Printing Class

Thanks to everyone who attended the screen printing class.  We had over 10 people take the class with Sarms from Modati and it turned out great.  We had screens with records, buildings and robots.  Can’t wait for next craft night.  I wonder what it should be?  Send your ideas to nbritsky@i3detroit.com

Unmeeting Tonight

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!
