Hey all!

we just got an email from Sabrina @ newark / element 14!

Quoted text below says it all, and once again, well done to our build team!

Riley

Thanks to you and your hackerspace, Hack Factory, for the ongoing commitment to the Maker movement. And thank you for your incredible participation in the Great Global Hackerspace challenge sponsored by element14 earlier this year. In response to some confusion as to whether teams would receive 1 or 10 of the solder stations, lead cutters and braid for the amazing work you did as part of the GGHC, element14 has decided that we will honor the maximum expectations of our teams and therefore will be shipping any missing items to you directly from our warehouse. Below is a summary of prizes that your team will receive as a participant. $900 USD (support funds for your project build)One 1 yr license to CadSoft EAGLE Pro 10 soldering stations (exact skus will vary by country and availability) 10 ESD Safe Lead cutters 10 Desoldering braid My understanding is that your team has received the prize money, but not the CadSoft EAGLE license or complete 10 soldering stations, lead cutters and braids. We will send you the remaining items plus additional bonus tips. We are now sending these directly to you from our warehouses but on some of the items there is a longer than normal lead-time so your patience is very much appreciated. If there are any other items missing or if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. Once again thank-you for your participation in the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge and our sincere apologies for the delay in getting these prizes out to you and your teams.

Has not shipped yet, will be soon.

They'll be emailing us again once it's in the ups pipeline, and they'll give us a tracking number.
