EMF 2018 - EOF Village


#1

I think at least 3 or 4 of us are going to EMF. Would it make sense for us to get a village?

https://wiki.emfcamp.org/wiki/Villages

Villages serve as common social areas and are a great place to host small workshops or just welcome visitors curious about our org.

Should we apply for one?

And there’s also the question of hiring a marquee, tables, etcs.
https://www.emfcamp.org/tickets/hire

  • £227.50 = 1 x £227.50 for a 3mx6m marquee
  • £11.28 = 2 x £5.64 for 2 tables
  • £7.92 = 6 * £1.32 for 6 chairs.

Total: £246.70

I’m willing to chip in, and we could probably get by with a smaller marquee as well.

@dan.weatherill, @jared_reabow, @Iulian.Arcus thoughts?

@kate, @the.borderer will you be attending EMF this year?


#2

We have tickets. We need to sort out care support. If we can hire a motorhome we might do that. We have big tents as well. There is also the reality that we might just collapse and just not be able to, we just don’ t kow at this point


#3

Matt Wescott is the only one down for OxHack, I’m wondering if anyone would like to reach out and ask about hosting a Hackspaces@Oxford tent and split the cost?

As for me… I think we can get around by doing it for cheaper. I appreciate the community under a tent idea but we did well without at SHA.


#4

Well, we had Jenny’s Hackaday tent at SHA as well as the London hackspace tent. We kind of mooched :stuck_out_tongue:

Splitting it with Matt sounds like a reasonable idea.


#5

I have a tarp :stuck_out_tongue:

#7

I have a ticket. Not sure about the idea of a village with the cost etc as we don’t really have much specific to show off yet


#8

The Library of Things now have gazebos to rent so we might go for that. Should be pennies compared to renting it from the organisers.


#9

I’ve created a Village page. Feel free to register yourselves.

#10

So are we getting the gazebos from LoT? If so, how are we getting them to the EMF site?


#11

I’ll be driving, so will Jared.


#12

@dan.weatherill will you be driving as well?


#13

@Iulian.Arcus @jared_reabow, @dan.weatherill So is the gazebo thing happening? Because we’ll need to reserve a location on the map and possibly rent a table and some chairs.


#14

I’ve put our village here: https://map.emfcamp.org/?#19.89/52.0427329/-2.3747698
we can change it if needed, though if we do we should do it soon.


#15

Hm… I was told Bicester Green might have a gazebo but I couldn’t secure one. I have a chair and a mini table. We should just get on a whatsapp chat…
