Shuswap Robotics / MakerSpace / HackerSpace

I live in a little place called Blind Bay, BC, Canada. Blind Bay is about 2/3 of the way between Kamloops and Salmon Arm. Some might consider it to be North Okanagan.

I've done my own bit of searching and didn't find anything like a robotics club, Maker Space or Hackerspace.

So I decided that I'd create this web page, which other people searching for something similar might be able to pick up.

If you're interested in this type of thing, feel free to get in touch. My email address is dhylands at gmail dot com.

I'm also interested in wood-working, metal-working, and electronics, and like to play around with linux.

There is a decent sized MakerSpace which has started in Kamloops in the last couple of years (I added this comment in 2016). There is a discussion list as well.

I've also come across a couple in Kelowna (not sure how or if they are related): OKMakers and K-Hub.

If you search the Kamloops discussion forum using the search term "Sicamous" you should come upon this thread by Daryl who is looking to start a MakerSpace in Sicamous.

It looks like there is now a Shuswap Makers group on Facebook.
