Hi!

The MECHANICON 2016 was a huge success and we had a lot of fun, so we are planning another one for this year!

Date: October 14th, 2017
Time: 16:00–20:00
Location: Silver Tower in Frankfurt am Main, 31st floor

Do I want this?

Attendance is free! Come over, chat about your hobby, bring your keyboards, try other keyboards, trade/eat/laugh/ :)

There will be free pizza and drinks thanks to CandyKeys! You can meet them at the event! They will be there in person and you can view and buy all the things they have in their shop.

I want this!

We created a Meetup group. Please join us and RSVP for the event, so we know how many people/keyboards to expect:

https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/Mechanical ... 240842117/

:!: Important :!:
When RSVPing, you will be asked for your real name.
We need to know the real names of all attendees, because there will be a guest list.
To enter the event, you need to be on the guest list.

Can I do more?
If you want to give a talk or a workshop, just let me know!

Hope to see you there! I will keep you updated!

Best,
Christian

I hope you can make it! Keyboard window shopping at our meetup would be a good way to celebrate that certificate :twisted: :P

Oh, cool. I'll definitely try to be there. Was nice sharing the builds and getting to see some rare stuff first hand last time.

Also really curious how strict that time frame will be. Doors closed if we're early or is there some "set-up time".

Yes, this is a good point! We plan to "officially" open it at 16:00, but doors probably will be open an hour earlier, so everyone that brings something has enough time to set it up.

Since FFM is my home town I will definitely be there.

I had this crazy idea to put up a little DT corner there and want to call all DT members to unite ;)
Let's coordinate who is bringing which keyboards so we don't bring too many duplicates and cover a nice range!

Maybe seebart also joins us and he can bring a nice Cherry keyboard that I will desolder live on stage :lol:

If nothing cross my plan I will also be there. Is there a couch where I can sleep? Last time I drove two times 14 hours with the bus and that wasn't really nice :) .

Yes, start thinking please :) I want to support this, but I may need some time to check with the location (depending on what you come up with). :D

I like how well represented Carbon was at that gathering.

Shame no G20 Semiotic was on display...

Thanks for posting, a little "Cherry-heavy" but since I now know Wodan is "harmless" this was good. :mrgreen:
