Hi everyone,

Based on the outcome of the poll and interest threads, the Sydney Mini has now been locked in for the 17th and 18th June 2023, at the Woolworths Head Office, Bella Vista.
The venue has kindly allowed us to utilise their facilities once again, and we are now confirmed for the above dates.

We have had to set a limit of 50 attendees this year due to the size of the rooms we have been allocated.
We are still waiting on the venue to get back to us in regards to catering costs to finalise the overall mini cost. As soon as this is known, we will advise appropriately.


Here is our agenda for the two days:

I’m 80% on making it and will confirm soon. As the person doing the crazy 3d printing thing this year - I can cover that. And I’d be interested in talking about LLM’s/AI if no one else is.

Do you think Woolies would let me park my caravan in their car park for the night 😉

Thanks @thewanderingpine - Those are two topics that we would definitely be grateful for you to pick up.

Woohoo. No topics in my fields of expertise so I won't really need to head north. ;)
If the numbers do get over 50 or if Emma brings her bub I'm almost a surety.

I am happy to do the "Importing sequences" workshop. Can also talk about the Angel Wings and one button change of sequence using the Hanson RPI-28D+ and FPP and bring these to the Mini if you want another topic?

@Skymaster Has there been a discussion on cost per head this year? From memory (correct me if wrong), was about $40 last time...... ????

Hi David, No template, we aren't that fancy. Prepare anything you like in whatever format suits you best and is compatible with your laptop.

Hi everyone,

For those coming to the Mini this year, we are still looking for some volunteers to present on various topics. We want this to be all about the community, rather than just two or three people rambling on for a day and a half.

Everyone is invited to join us in a meeting at Friday 12th May - at 8:30pm AEST - in Troy's zoom room to discuss the mini presentations and where others can assist and help out. Please join us and help us make this mini something fantastic!

Cheers
Mike
