I just one of the organizers of Oakland Nights
Live scheduled for Oct
whether we can run our event later (until maybe 6pm or 7pm) in the ballroom
during their setup, then move downstairs to the basement if necessary.
I think this might be ideal for both time to prep, low overhead, and use
of the big beautiful ballroom!

I'd opt for an earlier date, if those dates
work for others. Either of
the earlier weekends (4th & 5th or 11th & 12th) work for me.
Okay, so I have a tough question to ask!!!
Here's The Omni's calendar http://wiki.omni-oakland.org/w/Calendar
We *can *host the event on Oct 25-26, BUT we'll have to coordinate
expect 100-150 people mainly in the ballroom (
I'd anticipate a BACH Unconference maybe getting close to the 100+ mark
only with a great turnout, but probably closer to ~50 with rolling
attendees (folks leaving and new folks arriving) for this first-time
Either number of people would fit in the basement + sudo room's space
same floorplan above).
Here are the *Alette in Oakland* (concurrent event) details:
Fri Oct 24: 7-10pm
Sat Oct 25: 10am-10pm
Sun Oct 26: 11am-3pm
We're not sure if there will be sound issues between the ballroom and
basement, but we can try to find out beforehand. I don't think it will
too big of an issue if we're not using
Alternatively, we can pick an earlier date with more flexibility of
location and concurrency
