Calgary Mini Maker Faire 2016
Protospace is attending Calgary Mini Maker Faire 2016 (August 20–21), which will be held at Telus Spark, the same location as the previous two years. We will have a large Protospace booth, and some members will have their own booths.
How to Help
- Show up and help run the booth. First, sign up by posting in this thread or sending a private message to Kat—you won't get an exhibitor pass otherwise. Second, add your name to the schedule below (or, if you lack a wiki account and can't create one for some reason, or the table markup is too poorly organized to find where you want to put your name, tell Ian in person).
- Bring or send your projects. First, tell us what you're bringing/sending in this same thread. Second, add them to the table below (or, again, tell Ian in person).
- Help other members with last-minute work on their projects.
- Tell your friends and family they should come to the Faire.

Please update this table as information changes.
In the submission status column, an empty checkbox does not necessarily mean that the maker has not submitted that form, only that they haven't updated the table or reported submitting the form to someone else who can update the table.
