QC Co-Lab if it were an outside event, the overhang could offer shelter for equipment should it rain. Could also grill hot dogs and such. Could have it in conjunction with QC Co-Lab, and Ham Radio enthusiasts. Of course we would need to see what the QC Co-Lab and Hamilton Tech's take on this.

Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. somewhere between May and September.
Brian Dietz with potential necessary equipment (tables, ice barrels for beverages, plug strips, generator, networking) from Graybar down the street from QC Co-Lab. Additionally, donated PCs from my personal stash (I will try and catalog what I have)
