Good Afternoon my fellow Steampunks!
 
Beakerhead is coming up really soon, it starts 7:00am Wednesday, September 11 and goes right through to late on Sunday night September 15.
 
We are encouraging all Steampunks to wear their Steampunk gear when attending any Beakerhead events as this will be a great opportunity to show Calgary, Canada, and the World the beauty and creativity that Steampunk has to offer.
 
The Steampunk Arts and Sciences Society (SASS) have been working with Beakerhead as you know to make sure there are some Steampunk activities included. 
 
There are currently three main Steampunk events during Beakerhead as well as many opportunities for Steampunks to participate.
The current calendar of Beakerhead events is up at their website if you want to see the range of events:
 
I'm not sure if the CSA has any specific events or participation planned, at least there are none scheduled at the moment.
 
Here are the currently scheduled Steampunk events that the Steampunk Arts and Sciences Society have listed with Beakerhead.
 
Thursday September 12
4:00pm- 10:00pm
Steampunk walkabout on Steven Ave Mall followed by adding some Steampunk class to the evening with the first Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra performance of the 2013 season.
We are working to get free tickets to this performance for Steampunks who attend so stay tuned to the SASS FB page for details.
 
Saturday September 14
 
Maker Faire at ACAD
SASS has booked a table for Steampunks at Maker Faire this year.
Last year was great fun and this year will be even bigger and it runs over both Saturday and Sunday!
If you are interested in helping to man the table to display some of your gadgets and costumes let us know.
 
Photo Shoot at the Rocket
Join your fellow Steampunks for a mass Steampunk photo shoot at the 40' metal rocket in Victoria Park
This will be a fantastic opportunity for Steampunks to gather and show off our creations and costumes with the back ground of a silver Buck Rogers looking rocket.
We will be posting the time for this once we have it.
 
Beakernight
Starting at 8:00pm and going to whenever!
This is the place to really shine.  Many of the events are free and this will turn downtown Calgary into a wonderland of experiment, science and art.
Steampunks are encouraged to attend all three of the venues but we will be gathering for a Steampunk Rendezvous in Olympic Plaza
The time for the rendezvous is still being determined so stay tuned.
 
For more information contact me or Monica Willard, or check out the SASS FB page https://www.facebook.com/SteampunkArtsAndScienceSociety
Beakerhead will be one fantastic adventure and I hope as many Steampunks as possible will come out to join the fun and show off our creations!
 
Ciao
Kevin
