WOOSH at Maker Faire- Milwaukee
As some of you know based on discussions and a previous E-mail- WOOSH will have
a booth at the 2016 Maker Faire Milwaukee.
This is an annual exhibition intended to showcase a wide variety of skilled
hobbies, crafts, education programs and other pursuits which involve making
Some of you have already expressed interest in participating in WOOSH's Booth at
this two day event.
It will be held Saturday and Sunday September 24 and 25. Others may be hearing
about it for the first time RIGHT NOW!
OUR BOOTH will primarily involve:
1) DISPLAY of our club's Rockets. This is LEVEL 1 of WOOSH member
participation. I hope that many of our members will want to participate at this
level. HERE'S HOW: Select a rocket that you are particularly proud of. It can be
low power, mid power,or high power; scale, competition etc. The wider the
variety the better! If you have several rockets you'd like to display- Let me
know. We will accommodate as many as space allows. Please respond through this
thread on the YORF WOOSH page. As the Maker Faire
time is rapidly approaching ( we have 2 weeks as of this writing ) Please
Respond ASAP. WE need to arrange pick up/ delivery.
2) I am prepared to man the booth for the majority of both days. But I would be
delighted to share the man hours with any and every body who is interested. This
is LEVEL 2 participation. Again the greater the number and wider variety of
WOOSH GUYS (including women) the better. We all know that our club has an
amazing talent pool. You do not have to give a seminar- you may, hopefully, be
asked a question or two. Basically you are there to REPRESENT our club's
friendly outgoing personality. This will also give me a chance to go to the
bathroom or get a hotdog for lunch.
3) If you feel comfortable in giving a demonstration of a build technique, piece
of equipment ie: tracking, recovery electronics, in flight camera work,
whatever- THAT would be fantastic! That would be LEVEL 3 participation. If you'd
like a block of time to do so- We can talk about it when you identify yourself.
Finally and really most important- PLEASE plan to attend. The Maker Faire is a
really great activity for anyone who is interested in interesting interests.
Perfect for bringing the kids, grandkids or all of you friends. AND IT'S FREE!
This is the first year of WOOSH participation at MAKER FAIRE MILWAUKEE. It's an
open book at this point. JOIN US to make it a worthwhile annual WOOSH event. I
hope to hear from all ( at least some ) of you!
