Rayc, thanks for this. I appreciate the time and energy you have contributed and continue to contribute. This is an excellent State Of Noisebridge report.

> So come to or come back to Noisebridge to hack.
> My name is Rayc and I hack from San Francisco's very own Hackerspace Noisebridge and with the Noisebridge Community.
> AND... I would like to personally like to thank all of the members, supporters, and past supporters, creating such an awesome hackerspace. As it has been said that despite the drama "Noisebridge is the best hackerspace on the West Coast."
