OC Mini Maker Faire Field Trip

A few of us are making the drive to Irvine for their OC Mini Maker Faire on Saturday August 17th. It's a great chance to experience a mini maker faire and figure out what to do (or maybe not do) for our upcoming event.

Please leave a message here or email me if you're interested in:
-Driving a carpool
-Looking for a carpool
-Want to volunteer during the mini maker faire

    I had so much fun, seeing all the projects, people and attending all the panels. I believe the Inaugural San Diego Mini Maker Faire will be just as awesome of an event if not better with all the staff, help and backers. I have belief that it will thrive amongst the community that has been built around the technological disruption we have created here.

    This was a great event! I went last year, and this year's was even better. Plenty of good lessons learned, and inspiration for SDMMF!

    What a blast! The OCMMF was a great success IMHO. I went last year and it was pretty small and not too exciting. I saw the potential though, and they stuck with it and it has become sooo much better. I can't wait until next year! That's the story I take away from this event= starting small is just, well, starting!

    For my first maker fair, I was impressed with the amount of brain power, energy and creativity that was there one place. I was in awe of the middle school students' innovations, the 3d printers, and all the hands on activities. I walked away with a hundred new ideas swarming through my head.

    I think I liked ocmmf more than San Mateo! Whoa!

      There will be 75 exhibitors here so there will be plenty of stories. I've already learned a lot so I can attest that it's a worthwhile trip. Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

    My wife and I will be driving up for a few hours, we will not be spending the entire day. But, we have room in our car for two if anyone wants a ride up / back or both. We are coming from Sharps Hospital area (163/805 merge)

    I'll be going up with several people, probably won't have room (and we don't know when we're leaving yet).
    But... I'd love to meet up at the Maker Faire! Keep an eye out for me!

    I am happy to say that Dana has offered to include me in his carpooling to OCMMF. This is very exciting! So much fun to get in on the beginning of something which I believe will become "historic" and memorable!! See you all soon. I am not sure who wrote about the breakfast invite...Sounded yummy....Catherine Newhart[masked]

    I'm in Escondido, near the I-15 and CA-78. I'd like to carpool with someone or I can drive my old Prius and take up to 4 others (3 comfortably).

    Update on volunteering from the Show Producer of OC MMF:

    "On Fri, Aug 9, 2013 OC Mini Maker Faire <bequi> wrote:

    I just filled out your SDMMF volunteer form, we'd be happy to help on the day of the event in a variety of ways.

    Please let your people know that we've changed the volunteer sign up a bit, we decided that we were unhappy with the YourVolunteer set up so all they need to do is check out the schedule on our website and send an email to [masked] with the time and place they'd like to help out. Also, there will be a Volunteer Orientation on August 15th from 7:00 - 8:00pm at the Beall (UCI). It is not mandatory and we will have the script up on the website in the next couple of days. However, if any of your team would like to come and join us, meet us, ask questions, etc. that would be great. "

    Check out the schedule on their website:

    BADGES?+ LOOKING FOR A RIDE TO OCMM...
    Instead of T-Shirts, do you have "BADGES" we can wear?
    I'd like a ride to the OC Mini Maker Faire with someone.

    If anyone wants to wear a SDMMF shirt to OC for marketing presense, we have a CafePress site where individuals can buy their own. Pricey, but fast & easy. http://www.cafepress.com/sandiegominimakerfaire Marketing group is working a longer-term solution for a shirt purchase at bulk pricing.
