Open Shop Tonight (8/12 @ 7p)

Time for another open shop at i3 Detroit.  We will be open for tours, project help and more starting at 7p until the last member passes-out.

A number of projects will be worked on including the Podcast Trailer which is getting some much needed roof insulation.

Come say hi, bring a project or throw your hand in to help with someone else’s project.

This Saturday is Bed-a-Palooza with i3 Detroit!

On Saturday, June 26th, from 11AM – 4PM, we are at Bed-a-Palooza in Troy at Trainers Academy with Retro Doggy Rescue.  The goal of the event is to build 100 dog beds for Michigan shelters, where shelter dogs currently sleep on the floor.  This week has been a flurry of PVC and we have cut and assembled the 100 bed frames.  The day of the event, we will oversee the attaching of fabric to build each bed into a sturdy hammock.  We are also hosting a BBQ at the event that will start at Noon.

Meet Nemo.  Matt will be bringing the Skee Ball machine to help raise money for this little cutie who has a stage 3 heart murmur and has to go see a cardiologist.

Come one, come all!  The public is welcome to stop by and join the fun!  Trainers Academy is located at 1016 Troy Court, Troy, 48083.  More information can be found at their website: www.woofology.com.

All proceeds will go to Retro Doggy Rescue, a local no-kill rescue.  They will also be accepting physical donations such dog food, treats, toys (new or used), bowls, collars, leashes, crates, blankets, sheets, towels, throw rugs, cat food, cat litter, cat toys/supplies, or anything else pet related.

If you want to donate to the cause and can’t join us Saturday:

New twitter based open messaging system!

We have had a lot of people interested in knowing when there are members in the space so guests know when they can come out and play. So a few of the members have put together a new switch system in the space that we use to turn on the open sign for example. When this happens this will post a message on our twitter feed to let you know if we are open or closed for guests. So if you are interested in knowing when people are there so you can come by and play be sure to follow our twitter feed.

We are still working on a few new features that will be turning on & off a open or closed sign on our website to also let people know that we are open and you are welcome to come hang out or play. Along with the open & closed sign we will be placing an image from the camera on our website as well for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to check back soon to see the new system and features in place.
