Progress has started on turning the first floor of our building into a gathering space for potential NG events! My fingers are still crossed that we can screen the Best of 2009 there, maybe some time in April 2010.
Tim and our contractor friend Rob (not NG programmer Rob) have been cutting all the unused pipes out of the ceiling. These pipes date back to when there was factory machinery all over the place. Once the ceiling has been cleared out as much as possible, it will be pressure washed and re-coated so it isn't dropping rust on everything down below. I'll have to remember to take pictures of the ongoing progress! Here are all the cut up pipes from Day 1.
