Super Bowl of Destruction

Everyone is invited to come to the Arch Reactor for the Super Bowl of Destruction. We will have the football game on our big screen for everyone to watch. Not interested in football? Don’t worry, we also throw this party as something for the non-football enthusiasts. As a hackerspace, we use this time to breakdown all of the donations that are no longer usable or fixable. We have hard drives, computers, printers, server equipment, and more! Come join the mayhem and destruction! Bring a Super Bowl snack to share. We had some great food last year.

Destruction starts at 4pm on Sunday, February 2nd at Arch Reactor, 2215 Scott Ave.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 11TH 2020, 5:00p-8:00p

Joel Leonard arrives to the Arch Reactor around 5pm continuing his current 2020 MAKER HAPPEN TOURS

He's been visiting makerspaces and hosting a fun HOLD MY BEER BRAINSTORMING SESSION to develop plans for future community projects and events.  Called Hold My Beer because the intent is to have fun and unusal activities for 2020.  He will be sharing some ideas to get started and then looking to our community members to prioritize possible projects and then hoping to flesh out  a plan of action! 

So if you have great ideas to share or want help sparking ideas or just want to attend a fun time with THE CHAMPION OF MAKERS come visit us this SATURDAY!   

PANCAKEBOT WILL BE UP AND RUNNING 3D PRINTS OF BEER SHAPED PANCAKES DURING THE SESSION

HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE!!!

What is Hacktivus?  Hacktivus is a holiday that I made up this morning and is now the official open source secular winter-time gift exchanging celebration of Arch Reactor, as well as any other Hackerspace or Makerspace that wishes to copy it.  It's allegedly the perfect holiday where trying to get a group of techies, tinkerers, and free thinkers to show up at a specific time and place for any kind of holiday party is more difficult than herding cats.

Celebrating Hacktivus with the traditional Hacktivus Gift Exchange:

- To sign up to participate in the Hacktivus Gift Exchange, fill out the Google Form from January 1st-10th. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdnxQRVstK0m7wYyZiIs6HWSBKht5xRIMyVj5mjpBCU_7t0TA/viewform
- Everyone that signs up will eventually get an email with the name of another random member that also signed up for the gift exchange.  Keep it a secret though, that's part of the fun!  Oh, and I promise not to just pair everyone up with my name!
- Make, hack, re-gift, or purchase a gift for the member who's name you were given.  Try to keep the spending limit at around $20.
- Wrap the gift to the best of your gift-wrapping capabilities and label it with the member's name that you were given.
- Deliver the wrapped gift at Arch Reactor and place it by the customarily decorated Hacktivus Robot.  It will vigilantly protect your gift until the gift's intended recipient can come by and pick it up.
- Once you've delivered your gift, please respond to the email you received so the organizers can notify the gift's recipient that their gift is waiting for them.
- Now wait anxiously for the notification email informing you when a Hacktivus gift has been delivered for you!

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
