Q: What are you doing about COVID?
A: We are paying close attention to the situation tactically; we are however required to follow the University's policy at the time of the event. But in the act of knowing we can do better, we will have masks available for folks, and air scrubber will be deployed. The speaker room is "yuge" and social distancing should easily be met. The other room is a good sized room as well, but we will pay close attention to the air circulation in it as well. Soldering stuff is going to be outdoors. We require that all participants be respectful of others; the week before we will share more information that should be useful for attendees. We're all adults here, let's be thoughtful and caring of our peers.
