Knox Makers' Event Blog

Select solid and compelling highlight content for any blog posts that act as summaries of the prior month's events or for special content.

Google Group

This should be done sparingly and only for ultra hellacool shots or special content. Generally, avoid spamming the Google Group with a bunch of large filesize images recurringly for events. This could change, but currently content is not being pushed to the Google Group in this way for events.
