If you live in the Portland, Oregon area and would enjoy an early Oktoberfest with beer, brats and maybe learn a new thing or two, come to the OktoberBest trade show on September 12th. We will be there in booth 29 and Duane will be speaking about how to avoid layout and assembly got'chas with advanced component packages. Show hours are noon to 5:00pm and the advanced packaging talk is at 4:15
Our friends from Portland State will also be there with us. The Portland State Aerospace Society was recently added to the Screaming Sponsorship Program and they will be there to hang out and chat about active guidance, live telemetry and Mach-3 WiFi. The team is great and is really advancing the field of amateur rockets.
The show is located at the Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus [17705 NW Springville Rd. Portland, OR 97229 - go our Hwy 26 and take 185th North. Then turn right on Springville Rd.]. The cost is $10, or a simple donation of food for the Oregon Food Bank.
For more information, you can check out their website at http://www.ema-oregon.org/OctBest7.php.
By the way, the real Octoberfest is September 13 - 16 in Mt. Angel Oregon, about 30 minutes South of Portland http://www.oktoberfest.org/. Well, the Real one is in Germany, but close enough.
