All builders from beginner to pro are invited.  Presentations are in voice and text.  For text presentations, best bring the text in a notecard and paste it into chat.  Voice presentations may be captured in video.  Stills and videos from the show may appear in this blog. Next WIP showNext WIP show: TBD  HG address below: paste into the World Map next to Find.
