Tickets for April 11
Tickets are now available for the April 11 Dojo.
We’ve had unusually high numbers of cancellations the last couple of weeks due to bridge closures and spring colds. For two weeks running, we’ve gone through the waiting list and still weren’t full. And with Spring Breaks coming up AND it being Easter weekend, we actually had 2 tickets left for April 4th as of Monday morning.
If you’ve been meaning to get down here, get your tickets now. while all the regulars are distracted.
Minecraft and Codestarter parents, your last pre-reserved ticket was March 28th. You will need to start going through the regular sign-up again.
Python parents, if you were able to sign up for in-person Python tickets (as opposed to the remote learning option we’re trying) for your children, you do not need to sign up for regular Dojo tickets at all during April. Your child’s in-person Python reservation is your ticket for all April Dojos.
May Workshop Voting
If you’ve got an opinion on what we should teach, go vote or even add an option to the voting. And remember, you can vote for all the workshops you like, not just the one you like most.
Voting ends March 31 so whomever is going to teach the May workshop has a month to prep. Get your votes in now.
In June, July, and August, we’ll only be meeting every other week. The weather will be nice and people are less inclined to be indoors on sunny Saturday mornings. Mentor Avi is pitching Greg a plan for the rotating room (Minecraft, Python, ?, ?), And we’ll do another run through Minecraft after school starts in September.
I’m taking on some new responsibilities in my professional life that may cause me to miss a number of Dojos due to travel. On top of that, a friend’s recent heart surgery reminded me that I’m not immortal.
We need some more redundancy in the system.
I sent out a note to the volunteers list, but I’m also calling out to our regular parents. We need three or so people who can donate 5 hours a week plus fairly regular attendance at Dojo to help take some pressure off the existing crew and to create that redundancy. We’ll be moving firstname.lastname@example.org to a helpdesk ticketing system so we can distribute parent/partner assistance tasks and we’ll be training the new volunteers on the Eventbrite system (creating and editing events, managing orders, prepping the weekly spreadsheet for Amazon).
You don’t need to be a developer. This is administrative in nature, making sure the events happen. We will train you. But, since we’ll be giving you access into sensitive systems, we have to know you already, so we’re asking that only regulars apply.
