On the Trossen Forums, giantflaw mentioned we will be having a local event in July called MegaMania. I think he oversold it a bit though. Its an afternoon event at a local library. It was a lot of fun for us locals, but it’s rather small to have to travel to.

However, I would like to find a larger event in the fall maybe. I’ve been keeping and eye on the MFBA site and it states:

“Maker Faire Bay Area will not be held this May in 2020. Numerous factors including the potential impact of coronavirus as well as the transition last summer of Maker Media to Make: Community have influenced this decision. We have looked at dates for Maker Faire Bay Area in the Fall but we won’t decide to go ahead with an event until we can evaluate the impact and implications of this situation.”

So I’m holding out a little hope that MFBA will happen in Fall of 2020. If not, we are open to other suggestions, if people have ideas.
