Detroit MakerFaire 2012
This year, as before the venue is The Henry Ford, Detroit, Michigan, United States of America. Bring your passport!
When: July 28-29th, 2012
Andrew Mackie has volunteered to coordinate the Kwartzlab presence this year.
There is no official hotel selected yet. Some are staying at the Dearborn Hyatt which is very close (practically across the street) from the venue. They're offering a special Maker Faire rate of $109 a night for a limited time.
If you enjoy camping, another recommended venue is Detroit Greenfield RV Park in Ypsilanti. The staff was very friendly and the facilities were excellent for a campsite, with the only drawback being that the commute is about a half hour away by car.
The following members are driving down and have space for others. Make sure you have a valid passport.

The Kwartzlab Booth
Our booth is a standard 4x8' table and two chairs, supplied by the Makerfaire group. The table also has a 120V, 5A power supply - enough for a pair of laptops and a few of projects.
The table includes the option to sell merchandise. Please see Andrew M if you have products to sell.
Our booth's Maker Number is 12090.
The volunteers man the booth, spread the word about Kwartzlab to all who stop by, and help with preparation.
Note: On Friday afternoon (July 27th) the organizers are planning a "Maker mixer", for those able to attend.
