Picked these up today; anyone coming out for future events, good ear protection is recommended even if you don't intend to make much noise, in case someone else does.   These will be on hand for those who don't bring their own.

Do you work for Fox news or something? :P  During the Ferguson riots a Fox anchor found some of these earplugs on the street and reported that it was proof the local PD was firing nonlethal/riot rounds into the crowd.  Idjits.

Another great time, thanks to happyhunter and bassplaya for coming out.    Doors to the Mando Cave open again in two weeks [Sunday, 22 Feb].   I'm going to keep updating this thread as a running AP thread rather than starting a new thread every two weeks.   If anyone wants to come by and work on a different/additional day or evening, let me know!   Only 9 weekends till Celebration, vode!

Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 8 Feb
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Feb 09, 2015, 02:17 AM
We're going to be doing at least every other Sunday until Celebration and pick up after everyone gets back.   Next one is the 22nd.   We'd be thrilled to have you if you can make it to Bunaby for one.

Lol so I definitely don't know how to shop for leather but I found the stain I want on their site so some a little progress
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 22 Feb
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Feb 18, 2015, 03:08 PM
If nobody steps up to come out this weekend, maybe we can make it a field trip?  I can't buy anything right now, but I'd love to wander the shop again.
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 22 Feb
Post by: bassplaya on Feb 18, 2015, 03:15 PM
Hmm might be a good idea Lol Its gonna be hard to start a clan with so few numbers. I don't even know where to start for recruiting mercs or even costumers period
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 22 Feb
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Feb 18, 2015, 03:19 PM
Technically, we have 3 OM now.  You and happyhunter make the 5 for a clan, and you are both well on your way.  Once we start trooping Fan Expo and some of the smaller events together we'll draw attention, but I'm, the same.. I don't personally know anyone interested.   We'll just have to make them come to us :P

There is also a small squad building in the interior and a couple on the Island so we're doing OK so long as we can organize and keep pressing forward
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 22 Feb
Post by: Tylek Ren on Feb 18, 2015, 08:07 PM
I want to make it out, sadly it's a bit of a jaunt from the island. That being said, it would be great to just come and hang with you folks when the opportunity aligns.
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 22 Feb
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Feb 18, 2015, 08:09 PM
Please do!  Just let us know when

Post by: bassplaya on Feb 19, 2015, 01:28 PM
Ok so my bad turns out we got a family birthday dinner to go to on Sunday so I'm gonna have to cancel keep me updated for a make up
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 22 Feb
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Feb 19, 2015, 01:33 PM
how dare you!   All good, life comes first.    So if I'm not mistaken we're all otherwise occupied this weekend, right?  I don't think anyone has confirmed for this weekend.    Should we shift to next weekend [1 Mar] or pass this time and carry on with our every-two-weeks [8 Mar]?

If anyone IS coming, please correct me... otherwise I'll end up answering the door in my wookie robe and things get all awkward... ;)


SO a vote:   next weekend instead OR carry on as if this weekened happened and skip next weekend.

Due to schedules, we're skipping this week.  I'll be in the Mando Cave next Sunday [1 March] instead AND the following Sunday [8 March] which was to be our next one.  As always, everyone is invited

Post by: Zophar Ptay on May 31, 2015, 08:06 PM
For the time being, I'm going to put our armour party schedule on summer hiatus.    If anyone WANTS to have one, just post here and I'll be happy to host, but there are simply tooooooo many things to do in this city during the summer that attendance isn't worth trying to plan around.    I'm very happy to host.  Other than that I'll start the regular parties back up in the fall when weather turns back to perpetual rains :-P
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - TBA
Post by: Tylek Ren on Jun 03, 2015, 01:40 PM
Doesn't mean we can't just have a huge summer BBQ party somewhere. That said, if we have a date a month in advance, it may be easier for us Island folk to make plans to come. Though I know eager you mainlanders are. ;)
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - TBA
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Jun 03, 2015, 01:42 PM
I think that makes for a great idea.

We're going to try to make it every other Sunday next door to the Lougheed Mall.   PM me for details if you want to come out.

Post by: Zophar Ptay on Aug 29, 2015, 12:50 PM
Nope, you got it all wrong.    Get your butt out to one and we help you build the armor.   You don't need an approved kit to come out.    PM me if you want to come out and work on it or just meet and hang out while others work.
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 5/6/7 Sept - Labour Day long Weekend

Or you could do what I do and.just come.to hang out... Metal kits are not ear friendly to work on so I come to show off and get positive criticism

Post by: Gnar-Gnar on Sep 15, 2015, 06:19 PM
I'm thinking of spending the weekend building...

I can host 1 or 2 people at my house if they want to join... kind of an unofficial build party?

The next weekend that I have any time free is Thanksgiving weekend.  If people want to come hang out, I'll open the shop on Saturday the 10th [Turkey Day Saturday]  and/or Saturday the 24th.

Weigh in and place your bets...erm.. I mean votes.

So my new job I'm working Saturdays so either it would start at 4, or it could be Sunday but have to end by 5.   Your call:

Biweekly armor parties are starting back up either this coming weekend or the weekend after.    Any preferences?
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 15 November
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Nov 02, 2015, 01:20 PM
Next party is 15 November.  If you haven't been to my place and want to come out, ping me and i'll get you the location.  I'm going to start making them a monthly thing again now that the weather is turning nasty and if thee is interest, I'll do them more often.

Come one, come all... Work on a Merc or whatever else you have.  There will likely be a Stormie or two out as well.

Happy birthday!     I was about to announce that the local Garrison is having a weekend-long armor party that we have been invited to join that same weekend and I was going to change the venue.  I'll pm you details.
Title: Re: Next Armour Party - 15 November
Post by: Zophar Ptay on Nov 05, 2015, 10:27 PM
Update from our host:

We are going to get started at 11 and finish when we are satisfied with our work for the day. Most of the interest has been for the Saturday only, so anything up on Sunday will have to be pre scheduled.


=====

I am still up for hosting at my place Sunday, I'll likely do both.   Let me know what you folks want to do.

Might not be an armor party for certain, but we have an out of town recruit passing through on the night of Sunday the 21st so I'd like to get as many of us together as possible for a social at the very least.   Who would be able to make an AP if I host during the day, and who would be able to make a social dinner?

I'll be doing the Climb the Wall stair climb event with the 501st that day and won't be able to make it during the day. I might be able to do a dinner but it depends on what's going on after the event.

I might or might not be able to be there. I have family visiting Vancouver at that time so they'd be able to look after ad'ika- hopefully I can take some time off.  I'd be bringing my kit as well as sewing machine to help out with some tailoring :) as well as a sheet of 6mm and 3mm.

Gotta finish that blaster, make vibro axe, do all new plates, take in soft goods, build set pieces for con... pretty sure some of these will still need working on then!

Recruits, let us know what you want to work on, and I'll bring along my stuff to help! let's keep our numbers higher than the islanders!

Welcome, David.    I'd love to help out.   I just realized I double booked myself on Monday so I may have to reschedule the armor party, but I live right by Lougheed Mall and Gnar-Gnar is pretty close to me, so we are real close.  We'll hook up soon for sure.

Hey David! Welcome to the Mercs boards!

We'd love to have you out! And we're always down for helping each other out! What are you constructing your costume out of? What templates (if any) are you using?

Great to meet faja and get some more work done on Mandy's kit today.  sorry it was so disorganized today.   I'm in work mode with the weather so nice and my project list so backlogged so I'm opening the Mando Cave to all comers every Sunday and Monday for at least the rest of this month.  Drop me a note if you are coming so I can set up and I'll be here.

I can weather depending... it would be outdoors, and people would need to supply their own seating... and I'd need to borrow a table from someone idealy. I'm also right down the road from zoph's

Hey all.    Pushing this back one day by request.  Changing to Monday, 25 July.  Noonish till whenever.  A few new recruits want to come out and get started so anyone who can come out and help would be greatly appreciated.  If anyone really wanted Sunday and can't make Monday, I'll do both but you need to let me know.

Haven't really been keeping this up to date since the holidays have made things more impromptu than planned, so lets get back on track.   AP on 23 January from noonish until 4ish.  I have class at 6 so I need to kick everyone out prompt-like this time, sorry.

Choice of venues:  my place or the HackSpace in Olympic Village.   If you are coming, place your vote.

Sorry all, I should have just cancelled both of them at the same time.   I have to cancel this one too.   I'll be free on Saturdays in the future and start getting some regularly-scheduled ones going again on Friday evenings and/or Saturday days.

AP my place (Burnaby) Saturday 10 March.  We'll start around 11AM and usually wrap up around 4 or 5, but I am willing to go as long as there are people working.  ECCC is the weekend before and CCCC is the weekend after so come out and get your repairs and last-minute touch-ups done!   We may have a fresh recruit out this time as well, so it would be nice to have a good turnout.  Message me for location

Hi, I'll be travelling for the next couple of weeks for work so the Lougheed ones are on hold until August, but perhaps someone can host one down at the Hackspace while I'm away.

Saturday, 25 Aug I'll host at my place, maybe break out the BBQ if people want to hang out that long.  I live next door to Lougheed Mall.   PM me for details if you don't know how to get here.  I plan to get started around 1and run as long as people want to work.

Title: Re: Next Mainland Armour Party - 25 Aug
Post by: paradoxdj on Aug 20, 2018, 06:10 PM
I'll be there to help out but i'll have nothing of my own to work on.

Also a note on getting sintra. You can get it at half that price at Sabic Polymershapes in Burnaby. Just call ahead and make an order, they carry a bunch of different materials. Don't be intimidated that they're a warehouse, they'll still sell to you same as they sell to any business.
