Bay Area Brand New Model F Keyboards Meetup Venue Confirmed!  TOMORROW (Saturday 7/7) 12-4pm

Everyone please thank discord user and founding member of Sudo Room (part of Omni Commons) @barakus for volunteering a spot for the meetup tomorrow (Saturday)! 

I was thinking this will be a casual low key meetup where you can try out the Brand New Model F Keyboards and see some production / prototype photos on slideshow, and maybe meet up with some other Model F fans.

Of course original Model F's (including Kishsavers!) are welcome too if anyone wants to bring some.

If anyone has any ideas/suggestions for the meetup tomorrow please let me know!

Date:  Saturday 7/7

Time:  12-4pm

Location:  Sudo Room at OmniCommons, 4799 Shattuck Ave, Oakland
10 minute walk from MacArthur train station
https://sudoroom.org/
Building photos and directions:  https://localwiki.org/oakland/sudo_room

So far just the East Coasters have tried out the Brand New Model F Keyboards at the NYC and NJ meetups this year and last year but I am bringing the new F62 and F77 prototypes to California next month!

I am completely open to the details, locations, and what everyone would like the itinerary/structure to be. I think the main mechanical keyboards Bay Area meetup is likely going to be a separate big event another day.

I will be in the Bay Area (CA) and would appreciate any help setting up a meet up Saturday July 7th where people can try out the Brand New Model F prototypes and maybe bring their own keyboards (buckling spring only, IBM buckling and beam springs, or any keyboard?). It would also be great to meet some of the west coast Model F fans/collectors, match the forum names to faces, and see some parts of everyone's collections!

What else would people like to see? Would there be interest in some kind of presentation related to Model F's or is that too much? Maybe just an office hours type gathering would be better?

Please let me know your ideas and suggestions below and what you can do to help!

I would suggest you join the CA Meetup discord server: https://discord.gg/84swQv

Might be easier to connect with people who can help than asking them to join your server since many people don't read GeekHack.
