Yes, there is a raffle. People bring quality stuff that they want to donate to the raffle so that other DIYers can make use of it. If you have some parts or gear like this, feel free to bring it.

The raffle is taking place at the Firehouse around noon.

Is that a request for inclusion, or warning?

The menu will include:
Appetizers: Samosas
Mixed spring greens salad (with dressing)
Assorted Naan (3-4 types)
Vegetarian main courses (2-3 options)
Non-Vegetarian main courses (2-3 options)
Dessert (e.g. Kheer)


My memory of last year's food was that it was 1) pretty tame and 2) really, really yummy.

REMINDER: BURNING AMP TIDBITS - PLEASE READ!

Burning Amp 2016: Fort Mason, CA.
Hours 8am-5pm plus apres party at the Long Interval pub.


VOLUNTEERS AND SETUP:

Instead of a team of volunteers, this year we are all in it together. On the plus side, because we are using the Firehouse for the lectures, raffle, and lunch and paying for it, all the chairs and tables in the Firehouse will be set up by Fort Mason. Yea! But in the Meeting rooms, where we normally have all the DIY gear on display, we will face the same setup tasks as in the past. That is to say Fort Mason will leave carts of chairs and tables here and there and our job is to set these up as we see fit. At the end of the day we need to return all the tables and chairs to the carts and do some minor cleanup. This is where we can all pitch in. If you are bringing gear, expect to be a volunteer as well. In fact if we all head up there in the morning when we arrive this can be done in 5 minutes. So please think about leaving your gear in the car when you arrive and take one trip inside to lend a hand and find your spot. Then go back and begin unloading. At the end of the day, after you have packed up, please think about lending a hand to move tables and chairs from your area back into the racks. If we all pitch in this will be easy peasey.

PARKING ADVISORY:
Fort Mason has a large pay parking lot. This year there is a large event and a Farmer's Market taking place on the same day as Burning Amp and their attendees will compete with Burning Amp attendees for parking. The Burning Amp venue spaces should open at 8am. The other show (Western States Crafts Fair) opens at 10am, but its vendors may arrive earlier. The Farmer's Market start's at 9:30am I think. If the parking lot is full you will need to find parking in another Fort Mason lot or nearby paid parking. PLEASE TRY TO ARRIVE EARLY via the Gatehouse entrance to avoid lugging your gear from 1/4 mile away. Sorry this is out of our control. See this map for other parking areas in Fort Mason:
http://www.parksconservancy.org/asse...-mason-map.pdf

ENTRY FEE, RAFFLE TICKETS, LUNCH = $$$
Here's the skinny on costs for the event. Thanks to the generous donation by FirstWatt (Thanks NP!) we are able to keep the entry ticket cost down to $20 this year. Lunch will be offered for $10, which will get you a heaping plate of Indian Food (see earlier post in this thread for the menu). You will get some raffle tickets as part of the entry ticket charge, and additional raffle tickets MAY be available for an additional cost just prior to the raffle. If you attend Burning Amp and are NOT an invited speaker or vendor, be prepared to pay the entry fee (cash only).

RAFFLE OF DONATED ITEMS:
This year's raffle will be held in the Firehouse over the lunch hour when everyone will be down there anyway. If you would like to donate items, please consider whether these would be of interest to someone. Please do not use the raffle to dump old junk! And please check to see if your item was actually taken away after the raffle has concluded and if not, please take it back home with you. Thanks for your consideration on this point.

PLEASE PREPARE INFO ON YOUR DIY PROJECT
Burning Amp is much more interesting when people can read about what they are looking at. Wow, here's a nice electronics chassis with some connectors on the table! What is it? Don't make attendees GUESS. PLEASE prepare a short description (e.g. 1 page or less) of your project at home, print it out, and bring it with you. You cannot always be there every second to explain your project, and even if you are this will give someone other than the person you are talking to at the time a chance to get an idea about it. Some point you can include are: What is it (preamp, amp, headphone amp, etc)? Did you design this or did you build a kit? What is novel about it (parts used, construction techniques, etc)? What are your own thoughts about it, and would you recommend it for someone else to build, etc. This kind of info can make browsing around the floor much more informative and can cover the basics so that you will not need to repeat them over and over again.

ALCOHOL
There is no alcohol allowed within the Burning Amp venue, but you can open carry on the FM grounds. There is a pub with full bar in Building A (called 'the Long Interval') where one get get some suds and meet up after the BA venue has shut down.

VENDORS: LINEAR INTEGRATED SYSTEMS and MODUSHOP

This year we have two vendors who will attend. LIS will have product samples on hand, literature, t-shirts to sell, and will demo/display a head phone amplifier evaluation board. Please stop by their tables upstairs in the small meeting room. Gian from Modushop will also attend and will be raffling off this Deluxe 4U steel amplifier chassis! Snacks will be located in the vendor room, so please stop by for some munchies and check out the gear on hand!

I think you might be confusing:

A. the night before the event (Saturday night), some people are meeting up in Chinatown for Chinese food.

with

B. on Sunday at the event we are catering a lunchtime Indian food menu.
