  • What
    • NYC Resistor is moving!
  • Why?
    • We got an awesome new space with tons of potential, tons of room, and cheaper rent.
  • When
    • Saturday Feb 27th, starting at 10 AM, going at least until 6pm. Call if you can only come later, we may have some projects still in process
  • Where
    • Brooklyn, starting at 397 Bridge St, 5th fl, then proceeding to 87 3rd ave (btwn bergen & dean), on the 4th floor. Both buildings have freight elevators, but expect to use the stairs for small stuff.
  • Who
    • You!!! We need help getting this done. We have tons of stuff, and a lot of work needs to be done to make the new space awesome.


Timeline[edit]

  • Pre move (8:30ish) - Eric and Ryan pick up bagels and the big-ass moving truck, and get it to Resistor
    • Resistors who arrive early can start loading stuff out into the front lobby
    • A small contingent brings any needed tools back from newsistor so we can break down the loft and toolbench.
  • 10 AM - The move starts
    • Team 1 loads everything small and loose from the space into the truck. All boxes, tools, etc.
      • Liz
      • pipix!
    • Team 2 (at least 6 people to be safe) takes down the loft and the toolbenches.
    • Team 3 Is on "big, heavy and fragile" duty. The laser, the pinball table, big planks of plywood, etc.
    • Team 4 is on cleanup. Sweeping, mopping, spackling the walls, wrapping wires, etc (this team stays at oldsistor until they're happy with the space.)
    • Hardware store run 1 is done at 10:15am. Anything needed (paint rollers? shop vac bags? bigass ladder?) or planned is picked up.
