 My interests are varied and among them is electronic tinkering and model railroading.  One of the ways I used to relax is building single and dual gauge track by hand. My interests are varied and among them is electronic tinkering and model railroading.  One of the ways I used to relax is building single and dual gauge track by hand.

 +===== Darrel =====
 +{{::darrelknutson.jpg?nolink&300 |Darrel Knutson}}I am a candidate for the board because after being a vocal critic for years I am willing to stand up and try to make the board a more responsive and functional group.  As a member I would work to make the board more like the guidance group it should be and get it out of the day-to-day operations managers it seems to have become.  The board appoints the officers who should be doing the actual management with the president and other officers having actual control.  
 +
 +I was taught by me dad to try and learn new things and to get involved at a very early age.  Since then I have been a "hacker" all of my life with an emphasis on woodworking and learning what I needed to do what I wanted.  I love the Quelab because as I tell people, it is an adult playhouse.  It has the tools members can use to learn and make things to their hearts desire.  More importantly, it has a diverse membership of people with the knowledge and desire to help other people learn and "do" I have donated a lot of tools and time to help expand the capabilities of Quelab and will continue to do so.  I would like to see us return to having classes, both paid and free, to teach members new skills and most importantly, retain members to grow the organization.   
 +
 +My background as a retired US Air Force pilot and computer systems engineer has taught me that skills you learn at any age help you explore and grow in other areas.

 +===== Ethan =====
 +{{::ethanmoses.jpg?nolink&300 |Ethan Moses}}I'm a DIY kinda guy, and lover of Quelab.  I joined a few years back because I couldn't reasonably use my TIG welder in my own backyard.  I quickly got pulled into the metal shop.  I came to Quelab because I needed a workshop, I stayed because I found a community.   I am interested in photography; electronics; embedded systems; welding; machining; laser cutting; and 3D printing.  I have a very small business printing cameras and accessories at www.cameradactyl.com.
 +
 +I love the anarchist ethic of Quelab where the pre-requisite for doing something is generally just wanting to do it.  As a board member I would work to keep the club this way.  I would love to see Quelab grow in membership, and be able to invest in more equipment and unused space.
 +
 +===== Ray =====
 +{{:pic_of_ray_finch.jpg?nolink&300 |Ray Finch}}Hi.  I have been a hacker/maker since I was a kid.  Taking things apart
 +and seeing how they work or modifying them to do new things has always
 +been a favorite pastime.  My background includes electronic design, software
 +development, the restoration of pinball machines, and other areas.
 +
 +In 2010 I discovered Quelab - 2 weeks after they opened.  I donated time,
 +tools, equipment, and my expertise.  Being a part of the early incarnation
 +of Quelab to its current size of 10,000SqFt, has been rewarding and an
 +honor.
 +
 +I contribute to Quelab by giving advice on projects, helping with the
 +Quelab booth at MiniMaker Fair, setting up the Electronics Lab, the first
 +3D printers, and serving on the Quelab board.  Recently, I set up Digital
 +Arts Lab with the Large Format Printer and Vinyl Cutter.
 +
 +I want to see Quelab continue as a fun and rewarding place to learn,
 +socialize, relax, talk with friends, and to be that place that feels like
 +a second home where you can make things that are important to you.
 +
 +I was on the first Quelab board through 2015.  After a two-year break I
 +returned, serving through the present day.  The board's purpose is to keep
 +Quelab on track with the goals of a hacker/maker space, pay the bills, set
 +policy, and other mundane details.  Also, to ensure that the board
 +operates in the best interest of the membership.
 +
 +As a member, you should only need to focus on working on your projects and
 +having fun.  As a board member, it is my responsibly to help ensure that
 +happens.
