TC maker has been invited to participate in Seward Neighborhood Group's (SNG's) Kings Fair, at Matthews Park in the Seward neighborhood, on September 17, from noon to 5 PM. The theme this year is "Moving Forward into the Next 50 Years"; last year was the 50th Anniversary of the Seward neighborhood's founding.
I have already attended one organizational meeting on behalf of TC Maker. The next meeting is tomorrow at 6:45 at Matthews Park.
Event sponsors so far look to be Comcast and SCCA. SNG would appreciate other local sponsors.
There may be one or two performance stages at the event. The organizing group is looking for performers to fill available time slots, and we are invited to make referrals. A stage might be obtained from ARCE rental, but other sources will be considered. The group will try to get a local solar powered stage as well. Organizers are looking to have a zero waste event, by obtaining recycle bins and bio-degradable bottles.
SNG will have an information table with a lot of materials and history of Kings Fair and the Seward neighborhood.
With respect to TC Maker, the organizers were thinking they could get Nice Ride bike rentals for going to the Hack Factory for tours.
An idea discussed was that TC Maker could be given its own area to do what it wants, but of course interactive activities for the public are most important. I mentioned that we could demo our model siege engines, bring the Operation game, and possibly do clothesline racers or bristle bots.
As TC Maker develops its participation plans, I will be the point person for contacting SNG.
If you would like to attend tomorrow's meeting with me, or if anyone has further ideas, contributions, or would like to volunteer help for this event, please reply to this post.
