Austin Mechanical Keyboard Meetup

Hello Massdrop friends and enthusiasts!
For the last month or so I have been working with the Das Keyboard team here in Austin, Texas to plan a keyboard enthusiast focused event to take place at their main office. I have been reaching out to vendors and artisan makers alike seeking out sponsorships and donations in order to make our event as enjoyable as it can possibly be. I have received an overwhelmingly positive response from everyone I have contacted, including Massdrop.
Although we are quickly reaching our cap for attendees I wanted to put this here as a big thank you to Massdrop for their support in making this event even better. They are a key player in the mech game now, and have shown they are 100% for supporting the community.
I cannot yet disclose what they are providing for raffles at the event, but I can say they were extremely generous. Special thanks to Harley and Kunal for contacting me so quickly and being the missing link between consumer/enthusiast and company. We in the community greatly appreciated folks like you, and we hope companies take a note from MD in the community participation aspect.

Anyone still on this thread who missed the last one? Fear not! The next meetup is next Saturday, March 11th, from 3-7pm, at TechShop, La Frontera Village, 120 Sundance Pkwy #350, Round Rock, TX 78681. See you there!
I'm in the area and I've love to go, but unfortunately I have to hammer away at my keyboard to work during those hours. Unfortunate for me, but hopefully everybody who does go will have a great time.
Keepin Austin weird?
