Any workshop in Central Arkansas, USA?

HI- I am near Conway, Arkansas. Is there any groups or workshops in central Arkansas?

I just purchased Arduino Duemelove and some accessories and am looking into some practical applications I can use the Arduino to perform: -run stepper motors for 3 axis router -control power feed on lathe cross slide and compound slide, maybe even control the carriage feed -provide limit/safety switch controls for machinery -turn lights/fan on and off automatically when I walk into a room or leave the room.

It apears that there are counless things that can be done.

I am just starting out with it and looking for any local networking on the Arduino.

Regards Bradley

I'm from Conway & I've had a couple of Arduino Duemeloves and some RBBB's for a while now. Unfortunately, I don't know of any groups around here or Little Rock. You could start a group. I'd be willing to join.
