Noisebridge at RoboGames[edit | edit source]

Simone Davalos came by our booth at Maker Faire and was very excited to offer us a booth at RoboGames:

"RG is held at Fort Mason Center, Festival Pavilion, June 12-14th (next Friday Saturday and Sunday), from noon-6ish pm. Friday is our competitors' party, where we drink lots of beer and set things on fire. There will also be nibbles. Noisebridge is invited to attend, amorphous though that potential guest list will be."

The actual booth manning will be just Saturday and Sunday. I expect that we could bring the same hodge-podge of fun things as we did at Maker Faire, and this time we'll be all practiced at presenting them!

We will need some volunteers to man the booth and for set up / tear down. Simone has requested that we not have more than 4 people manning the booth at a time, however. Also, RoboGames is much smaller in size and budget than Maker Faire, so I don't know how many free passes they can reasonably give out. If that becomes an issue we'll figure it out then.
