Housekeeping Note: Industrial Showoff

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note to let you all know we’ve decided to postpone this week’s industrial showoff.  Since the event hit there’s just tons of content we want to get out, and I’m sure you guys are focused on playing Tap Ball at the moment instead of working on your industrial designs.  So…we’ve decided to postpone it for this week.

So when will be do the industrial showoff?  Well, next Saturday is 4th of July here in the US (well around the world really..since everyone’s calendar says July 4th, but it’s Independence Day here 😉 )…so we won’t be doing showoff then.  SO…we’re postponing the industrial showoff for two weeks.  It’ll go up on July 11th.  (and yes, we’ll post a reminder since that’s 2 weeks away)

So to sum up…the Industrial Showoff is Postponed this week and rescheduled for July 11th.  (so entries must be in by 8pm EDT on Friday July 10th)

Hope you’re having fun playing Tap Ball and can’t wait to see your Industrial Designs in 2 weeks! 🙂
