We have seen a recent decline in attendance that we suspect is due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus. We want to make sure we are serving our community in the best way possible, so we are considering closing our PopUp immediately rather than after this weekend. However, we have a number of people that have recently replied that they are interested in attending our Pi Day event on Saturday. We would like to provide this opportunity for those that want it.

If you have indicated an interest in this event, we need to know as soon as possible if you plan to attend or not. If we do not have enough people that confirm they are coming, we will cancel it. sending us an email or message, or changing your ticket through Eventbrite.

Thank you.
