All right! I've added your event to the Class-A-Thon calendar as well as
the Upcoming Events section. I also updated the wiki page to reflect the
new time and location:
https://noisebridge.net/wiki/ArduinoForTotalNewbies

I'll let you create the Eventbrite event and send out the email (I found a
template here):
https://www.noisebridge.net/pipermail/noisebridge-discuss/2012-October/032735.html

As the event approaches, I'll keep trying to find volunteers for you if
enough don't step forward. Tell me if there's anything else you need!

Jeffrey
