> At the DPRG RBNO on Tuesday, 01/28/14, I will hold a basic Arduino class. The class will last 2 hours and will start at 7:30 PM. The class style will be informal with several demonstrations. The class will be held in a manner not to disturb RBNO. If you are interested, please send me an email so I will know how many to expect. If there isn’t any interest, the class will be called off.

> WHO IS THE CLASS FOR?
> This class is for someone who has bought an Arduino board, but doesn’t know what to do next.

> WHAT DO I NEED TO HAVE?
> Attendees to the class should bring a laptop, an Arduino board, and an USB  cable. If they own 
> the following they should also bring: jumper wires, six volt battery pack, motor shield, hobby
