NorCal Mechanical Keyboard Meetup November 2019
« on: Mon, 05 August 2019, 11:14:39 »
Official Meetup Post:

Hello everyone, Manofinterests here and I have an announcement to make. It’s getting close to that time again for the Northern California Mechanical Keyboard Meetup! So I have some details and some notes to share with you all. I hope to see you all this weekend :D

If you want to keep up to date with any and all information, there is a California Meetup Discord: https://discord.gg/7gdDv2V


Meetup Details:

Location:

San Jose Mosaic
211 S 1st St, San Jose, CA 95113

Date:

November 9th 2019

Time:

10:00AM-5:00PM

Price:

$10/person; cash or paypal in person is accepted. (sorry, no card reader)

Your ticket is also a drink ticket for 1 free drink (alchoholic or non alcoholic) at the bar.

Q&A


Q: Do I need to RSVP?

Nope. Feel free to show up whenever!

Q: Why $10 ticket? It was free last year!

The $10 ticket price is unfortunately a necessity to avoid the financial situation of last year. Last year, the meetup lost a significant amount of money due to overestimating the purchase amount of items at the bar. I want to make sure that I am able to pay for the venue. Any leftover funds will be invested into future meetups.

Q: Hello, I like to help sponsor this event.

[Contact form](https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfqJublZa9zRQ4lejqppKR6H-PU2SjnT1S3Ej-8Rq52EugyDA/viewform?usp=sf_link)

Q: Hello, I’d like to help volunteer at this event

[Join the discord for updates](https://discord.gg/7gdDv2V)

Notes:

The venue is half indoors and half outdoors. Hopefully we’ll have some splendid weather like we did last year that we can all bask in while enjoying keyboards. The bar will be open for those of age to who want to enjoy themselves responsibly (They also have alcohol free drinks. Enjoy a Shirley Temple too!). Coffee and water will be provided at the meetup until we run out. Last year we ran out of tables which I want to avoid, so we’ll have more table this year!

Feel free to let me know in the comments any questions you may have and I hope to see you on November 9th with the best of your keyboards.

Here are some pictures from @Nebulant to hype you up:

I just got my X60 cerakoted by R. C. Refinishing in San Jose and mentioned this meetup. Might be a good idea to have a table for a cerakote shop.  :p

PFU rep at the meetup said there was definitely a refresh, that she knew everything about it, and that she could tell me nothing but that a lot of people would really like it (BS? Truth? Who knows.) She said it was definitely coming out Q1. (She also gave me some HHKB drink coasters, so no expense has been spared for the prelaunch.)
