> Hi Everyone,
> 
> After talking with the other officers and several long time members of
> the group, we've come up with an approach to find new, permanent space
> for the DPRG. Our idea is to have the DPRG become a founding member of
> a Dallas area hackerspace (a shared community workshop, see
> http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/ ).
> 
> Funding a hackerspace can be expensive and is usually done on a
> membership basis in which full members pay a monthly fee for 24/7
> access to the workshop. We realize not all DPRG members will want that
> level of access, so to fully cover the costs we're actively seeking
> other interesting parties in the Dallas area to participate with us.
> 
> If we're successful, this idea would result in a permanent workshop
> similar to the Garland warehouse where the group could hold meetings,
> classes and tutorials, or RBNOs. However, we've gotten such good
> feedback on having multiple RBNO locations, that we'll continue that
> in any case. Most likely, we would only want to hold one or two RBNOs
> per month at the hackerspace.
> 
> The space would also allow DPRG members to interact with other Dallas
> groups and individuals who share our interests.
> 
> We're still crunching numbers and working on plans but what we really
> need help with right now is finding potential spaces. If you have a
> building your could donate or know someone who does, let us know.
> 
> If you know anyone who has warehouse space available to a non-profit
> on a no-cost or low-cost lease for 1 year or more, let us know about
> that too.
> 
> And if you don't know anyone with space, go ask! If we all ask
> everyone we know, the odds are very good we'll come up with some great
> offers pretty quickly.
> 
> Thanks,
>
