  • Don't trigger the alarm! We have 24 hour access to our space and the front stairwell ONLY. The alarm is active from 10pm to 6am in all other spaces.
  • THE PURGE IS COMING!!! The time has come to do some reckoning with all of the various and sundry crap we have in the Dungeon. Consider this your official warning - if an item that you own or want is in the dungeon without a current valid parking pass, it will be considered trash, and will be treated as such. We don't have a firm date yet for the purge, so we will keep you posted.

  • "Hive is Real" shirt order form coming first week of January 👀


  • Brad has proposed a vote for a new 5 hp motor for the main air compressor. We are currently limping along with a smaller one, so we are not "dead in the water," but I think we're in agreement that this is a necessity! Vote closes on 12/5. Please vote on the thread in Discourse.
