Subject: Maker #6398 - Team I-Hacked PPPRS Car (CCCKC Affiliate) - Acceptance for Maker Faire
We are happy to inform you that your proposal for Maker Faire, Maker #6398 - Team I-Hacked PPPRS Car (CCCKC Affiliate), has been accepted. We're looking forward to having you participate in the 2nd Annual Maker Faire Detroit 2011!
I'd like to explain the process leading up to Maker Faire:
Save the dates July 30th and 31st! You should also consider being available on Friday, July 29th for setup and a special late afternoon Maker Networking event. We hope you'll set up on Friday and then stick around to meet some of the other makers who are exhibiting.
If you have a standard setup, we will provide a banquet table and two chairs. We ask that you bring all other items required for your exhibit. If you need something different, and you indicated so in your entry, we may contact you to discuss these details. We will also provide a small sign for your exhibit. We encourage you to think about ways to design your exhibit and to make it interactive and fun. If you have any questions about your exhibit or changes to it, please email us at mak...@makerfaire.com
The Maker Manual http://cdn.makezine.com/make/makerfaire/detroit/2011/mfd11_maker_manual.pdf
will help you prepare for Maker Faire and will answer many of your questions. An additional email confirming your exhibit details will be sent with a link to electronically accept your Participation Agreement. This agreement indicates that you've read the Maker Manual and that we've agreed on the specifics of your exhibit.
Safety Plans: Help us produce a fun and safe environment for all. If your exhibit requires Fire Marshall approval (you know who you are), please submit the Safety Plan for your exhibit no later than July 1st, via email to mak...@makerfaire.com
. If you have questions regarding this, please contact us.
