Vancouver Armor Party - 25 January
« on: Jan 10, 2015, 04:10 PM »
Sunday, 25 January I'm hosting at my place.   We'll start when the first person gets here and go as late as anyone wants to.   Please feel free to bring whoever you want, there should be tons of space, but don't post my address/phone publicly.  I am literally next door to Lougheed Mall so we can take food court and/or Safeway brakes or order pizza if you guys want, or hold off and do a group sit-down at any of the restaurants around here.  I'd rather leave it fluid and just have everyone bring a shareable snack or something.

A couple of folks who couldn't make it have asked about an online hangout.   Right now there's no intertubes running though the shop but I'll try to get something sorted before then if I can and set up a laptop for you to "join in" remotely.

I also have an almost certain confirmation from a gent who has been working on a Boba for the 501st who wants to come out who isn't on our boards (yet?)

If all goes well, perhaps we can establish the last Sunday of every month as a planned build day so people from outside the city can arrange to come in for the weekend or something.  I can possibly pu someone up on my couch for a night or two if theyare coming from out of town.

If you want in and didn't get the PM invite, then drop me a message and I'll send you my number and address.

If it really comes to that, we'll step over to the foodcourt and grab a bite.   As far as I know, none of us have actually met in person, right?

So far we have ParadoxDJ, happyhunter1, and a local 501st recruit coming out who I believe is working on an ESB Boba but I'm not positive.

Paradox and I are both OM so hopefully the other two will bring things to work on and we can get some work knocked out.    We currently have three OMs in BC [The Red Mandalorian out on Vancouver Island being the third] so we're close enough to have hope :-P

I'm'a go ahead and call that a success for a first time.

After almost 8 hours, I hereby degree this armour party both concluded and a success. 2 Mercs, 3 Recruits and a stray TK came out, thought the TK left pretty early so I guess he figured he was in the wrong neighborhood ;) 

We realized that between the five of us who were out today, we have one fiberglass, one metal, one ABS, one Sintra, and one resin. We're all set to take in new recruits in whatever medium they like once we're done with all of ours.

We'll be trying to do them every other Sunday.  If you want to come by and chat or work on a kit, drop me a line and I'll send you details!  Next armor party is scheduled tentatively for 8 Feb.

For those who came out, what was lacking, what do we need to organize/provide better other than hearing protection?

Thanks, one perk of a condo.   We pay maintenance/STRATA fees through the teeth but it does have a lot of perks too.  The craft room is about twice that size again right behind the photographer for clean crafts like painting, pottery, etc. so it's a great area to work in, and I should have done this a long time ago  8)

Glad you enjoyed it.   Come out in 2 weeks, with the progress you made you could likely get most of your plates finished in one more go.
