We had a meetup at Ben’s house yesterday (Sept 16, 2010) – our first real Maui Maker specific meetup! There were 10 people there (not counting Ben’s two boys and visitor). Ben and Hiro provided pizza and fish tacos, and drinks. The meeting started about 7:30pm and the last of us left at about 11:45pm – sorry it was so late Ben/Hiro!
We had a lot of good round table discussion as well as introductions. It was very encouraging to see all the people with enthusiasm for the space. We are working on getting the biz aspects established and looking at physical spaces. There are a few different spaces available at Hali’imaile in the Maui Land and Pineapple Co buildings. Some are huge quonset huts, some open sheds and perhaps a few smaller closed office type space. The range offers options for expansion if/when we grow and/or need larger project spaces. We dont yet know what the ML&P folks think but we’re pursuing it from several angles. Stay Toon’d!
