Goooooood mornin' Neverland!

Goooooood mornin' Neverland!

This morning, tinkerers started off the build session with solid plans and some pieces they had cut the previous afternoon.

Each project had a planning meeting to figure out who would be responsible for different jobs and to agree on some ways to collaborate with each other.  Tinkerers had clear goals and knew what needed to get done.

With the "what should i be doing?" part taken care of we were free to go - go - go and see if the morning matched our plans. How many problems would we run into and what would we do about it!?
