Maker Faire - Setup

Went up today to the stockyards Colosseum and unloaded 3 or 4 truckloads of assorted mayhem to entertain all the budding young Mad Scientists in town. Interesting place that. Not sure what goes on there on a daily basis but there are a lot of Stetson hats and no small number of folks sporting spurs.

I had the Pedal Air Gun in the back of the truck, looking like a fugitive from Libya and drew a number of curious looks from the ranchers passing by. Talked to a couple of ladies who thought the thing would be better than a swing set for the grand kids. I agree.

Lots of stuff will be on display. Talked to a couple fellows from the Community College who invited me over to try their virtual welder. Put on helmet and pretend to weld. The machine will tell you if you got it right.
