Confirmation Letter

Thanks for staffing a booth at this year's Geek Fair!

Free Geek's 2007 street party promises to be fun and exciting: 16 performers, organic food, kids' activities, printer smashing, and awesome video gaming will make the day enjoyable for everyone.

I am sending this email to confirm that you're on our list and we'll be expecting you. I also want to give you some logistical info so that the people staffing your booth will know what to expect.

Add this if it applies: PAYMENT: As a reminder, your booth payment is due on July 20th. Send your check to:

Free Geek attn: Geek Fair 2007 1731 SE 10th Ave. Portland, OR 97214

WHEN/WHERE: The fair lasts from 1 pm to 7pm (Please Note Corrected Time) , and will be located at 1731 SE 10th Avenue (2.5 blocks south of Hawthorne) in front of the Free Geek facility. We'd love for your booth to be up and running the whole time, although in the past, many booths wrap it up by 5:30 or 6pm. The people staffing your booth should come to the info booth, prior to 1 pm, right in front of Free Geek's front doors to find out where to set up. Geek Fair can be reached on Tri-Met bus route numbers 14, 10, 70, or 4. For a street map of the area, go to:

PARKING: Booth staffers are welcome to park at the corner of SE 10th and Market to drop off supplies, but then must move their cars once they are unloaded. Unfortunately, we can't offer parking in our parking lot, as we'll be using it for the event. There is timed and un-timed street parking available all around the fair.

WE'LL PROVIDE: A covered 6-foot table, two chairs, and a canopy, unless you've indicated you'll be bringing your own equipment.

WEATHER: It'll probably be hot. The people staffing your booth should be sure to bring plenty of water. Part of the fair will be inside our air-conditioned facility, so they will be able to escape the heat once in awhile if they need to.

FOOD: Vegan, vegetarian, and carnivorous food will be available for purchase from the food tent at the fair. If booth staffers want to save some money, they should bring their own.

If you have any further questions, or just need to contact me for something, send an email to or give me a call at .

Once again, thanks for helping to make this event great. We'll see you at Geek Fair!
