About this Event

DPRG Swap Meet: POSTPONED -> #flattenthecurve

Sorry to announce that DPRG will postpone - and will NOT host a swap meet and regular monthly meeting on 14 March.

The situation with COVID-19 has been evolving rapidly. Several cases have been identified around Dallas, including a case of community transmission reported yesterday (ie. a person who did not travel or directly interact with a traveler).

So it seems quite likely that the virus has already been quietly circulating around Dallas for at least 7 days, and represents significant health risk for some people and for hospital/ health care system capacity.

Hence, DPRG will do it's part to help flatten the viral spread curve

We look forward to hosting this swap meet as soon as conditions permit.

Meanwhile -> let's take advantage of time at home and build more robots!

If you haven't already, sign up for DPRG's email list and stay in touch. Members and non-members can sign up for free at https://www.dprg.org/joining-dprg/

** Open To Public **

Anybody hoard robot parts and tools?

Maybe you’ve been told to find a new home for some of those unfinished projects in your garage?

Do you have equipment you really don’t need but are having a tough time letting go of?

DON'T BE SHY!

There's nothing to be ashamed of.

Make your way to DPRG’s Spring Robot Swap Meet!

Don’t send that old turtlebot to the dumpster - trade it over to somebody who wants a fixer-upper - help it find a happy new home!.

So bring your stuff and some empty boxes.

Come find out what you didn’t know you needed – work on that list of things you can’t live without – don’t leave empty handed.

Rumor: Club pilgrimage to Tanner Electronics by 2pm after a quick swap meet. The word is that Tanners will close shop for good later this year. So we want to share a big DPRG ‘THANKS’ after they’ve served the community for so many years. And who knows - that ‘thang’ you need but didn’t find at the swap meet? For sure you can find it at Tanner Electronics!
