Tom Amatangelo

April Hacker of the Month goes to Tom Amatangelo for all his hard work in getting the media room up and running.  Building walls, building cupboards, and hanging dry wall are only some of the work he has put into the room.  Tom is founding father of CHAMP and has been here since the beginning.

Joe Hargis


March Hacker of the Month goes to Joe Hargis..  Yes I found this picture from what I believe HAS to be the 80’s.  Joe has donated LOTS of time, $ and items to CHAMP including things like the camera / audio system for the media room, a laser cutter / engraver and many many other things.  WE love you JOE!!

Bill Locke


Feb Hacker of the Month goes to our President and Founder Bill Locke, for building this custom 3D printer entirely from scrap parts lying around CHAMP.  This design has been used by several members now to make their own printer.








Jason Dommer & Andrew Engel

12928337_10208460002433089_5857332201540771624_nAt our new location, a lot of work had to be completed to make it habitable so we could move in. Jason and Andy went out of their way in the time and effort they put in. Only by their contributions were we able to have a successful move in the time frame that we were limited to. We sincerely thank them for their hard work.







Nathan Green

We lost one of our own recently. An early member and huge supporter of all things tech, he took a leave of absence from C.H.A.M.P. to be with his family. He was a great guy and a hacker at heart.

In honor of his efforts and his spirit, we have dedicated a room to him.


We will miss you Nathan. May you Rest in Peace.

Jeff Jensen


Jeff is featured this month for his motivation and dedication to get our  CNC machine build project complete.  He is was the champion behind organizing the build and managed the check off sheet for completed parts.

Thank for Jeff for your hard work and our new CNC!
