[http://makerfaire.com/bayarea/2009/ Maker Faire] is May 30 and 31 at the San Mateo County Expo Center.  We have a table and should bring a ton of cool projects!  We'll be able to get a bunch of passes, the exact number is not determined yet but will probably relate to how many people commit to coming.

If you are on this list, schedule yourself here: http://doodle.com/74apsqi664z7riag
 
 
 
If you aren't on the list, your name did not get submitted to Maker Faire for an exhibitor badge, and you'll have to manage your own Maker Faire attendance (try organizing 10 or more people to get the discounted ticket price).
 
 
 
You can also get a free day pass by volunteering for 4 hours or more with the Maker Faire people.  Contact the volunteer coordinator Sonia (sonia_at_worldmeetingsbysonia_dot_com), and let her know when on friday, sat, or sunday you can help out. 
 
I'm volunteering a lot with them, and I'll actually have 2 extra day passes.  Let me (Erin) know if you can use one of those.

Also, [[User:maltman23|Mitch]] is setting up a '''Huge Hardware Hacking area''' at the [http://makerfaire.com/bayarea/2009/ Maker Faire].  There will be 40 solder stations where we will be teaching hundreds and hundreds of people to solder and make cool things.  This is a mongo version of our own [[Circuit_Hacking_Mondays|Circuit Hacking Mondays]].

Lots of volunteers are needed to make this work.  It is really fun to volunteer!  Do a 4-hour shift, and you get a free pass for the entire weekend at the Faire.  Do more than a 4-hour shift, and you get lots of warm fuzzies!

* [[User:SFSlim|Slim]] - It's been a long time since I've taught anyone to solder, but I suspect that with a brief refresher I'd do just fine. However my electronics/circuitry knowledge is essentially zero at this point. So although I am a willing HHA volunteer, depending on your needs, I may be better suited to the main NB area.
