    Michigan Minecraft Meetup

    Kidpreneur is happy to sponsor the Michigan Minecraft Meetup (M3). The M3 is a place for serious Minecraft-gamers to network, share knowledge, collaborate new projects and/or create a startup. The event starts with a networking session, then a presentation about the topic of choice by one or more members and then an open forum to discuss everything Minecraft. 


    The mission is to have members learn and share knowledge about Minecraft. There will be a $5 fee for members to attend which pays for the monthly meetup maintenance and unlimited access to the meetup Minecraft server. Parents can bring their children for free but they must stay with the child throughout the event. If more than one child wants access to the server, then parents must pay for each additional access. 


    You must register in advance www.meetup.com/Minecraft-Meetup .
