[EMS Discuss] Eugene Mini Maker Faire

Thu Jun 6 19:31:23 PDT 2013

Hey, Nick, this is a little off topic, but will we have Wi-Fi at the
Maker Faire?  It affects what we can demo.

> Greetings, EMS members!
> (tl;dr: Tell everyone you know about the Eugene Mini Maker Faire on June
> 15th! Seeking volunteers to help with publicity and/or setup/breakdown on
> the 14th and 15th. And THANK YOU for your support!)
> I hope you're all excited for the Mini Maker Faire coming up on June 15th. I
> have been following your plans on the -discuss list, and I've been in touch
> directly with Rick, and it sounds like you'll be bringing some great
> activities. Plus, you'll be joined by more than twice as many makers as last
> year! Check the complete list at eugenemakerfaire.com. Bottom line: This
> event is going to be WAY bigger and better than last year!
> Rather than pass everything through Rick, I thought that posting directly to
> the list would make the most sense. So with that, please forgive the length
> of this message.
> Publicity:
> I absolutely need your help in spreading the word about the event. Please,
> tell everyone you know. Tell them twice. And then tell them to tell everyone
> THEY know. We are doing our best to get the word out, but with a limited
> marketing budget and limited time, I can only do so much. You folks are the
> most likely to know people who would love to come to an event like this.
> Please get the word out. Post some flyers (available at tinyurl.com/emmf2013
> or pick up copies at the museum). "Like" us on Facebook and invite your
> "friends" to our "event." (If you're "into" that element of social "media"
> and aren't worried about "privacy.") Post to any other websites, forums,
> blogs, etc., where Oregon-area makers might be lurking. And did I mention
> tell your friends?:)
> Logistics for the event:
> We are inviting all of the makers to load-in on Friday 6/14 from noon to
> 8PM. Besides bringing over your own materials (I'll let you sort that out
> among yourselves), I'd love to have some additional help in clearing out
> exhibits in the museum to make room for the rest of the makers. Please
> e-mail me if you think you can help out for any period on Friday.
> On Saturday morning, I'll be at the museum by 8AM to begin setting up
> outside. I would love to have some extra help in hauling tables and chairs,
> pitching canopies, and stringing pennant flags to make the place more
> festive (and keep out cheapskates who won't pay:P). Again, e-mail me if
> you're available. The event runs from 10-4, and breakdown is immediately
> after (along with resetting the museum to open up on Sunday!).
> Tickets:
> On sale in advance at eugenemakerfaire.com, and at the door. Same price, but
> if you buy in advance you're entered in a drawing for a subscription to
> MAKE. You do not need to buy a ticket if you're working the Faire -- but
> make sure Rick has your name!
> If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to get in
> touch. I am VERY excited about the Faire, and I hope you are too! THANK YOU
> for making it possible... without the support of EMS for the past two years,
> I don't think we would have had the impetus to create such an event. See you
> on the 15th! (And tell your friends!)
