Please join us for

 the Capital Region Drone Swarm

McClellan Officers Club

3410 Westover St,

McClellan Park, CA 95652

 5pm to 9pm on Oct 12, 2016

The purpose of the Drone Swarm is to connect the people, companies, and institutions of the California capital region to all of those who are engaged in or interested in the use of drone technology.  We will include educators, drone hobbyists, drone racers, commercial drone service providers, start-up companies, elected officials, venture capitalists, manufacturers, national and international players.

The event will be an educational forum that will, in one evening, briefly touch on the scope and depth of this emergent technology.  This promises to be the beginning of many valuable conversations and activities within our larger community.

The Drone Pilots Federation (DPF) is an international organization that currently has members in 32 countries. This non-profit community-based organization was created after the very first National Drone Racing championship, held in Sacramento at the state fair in 2015.

The purpose of DPF is to facilitate the growth of drone technology, to educate students and the public, and to act as an advocate for the pilots that use it as hobbyists, drone racers, or commercial operators.  

We believe it is important that people understand the direct connectivity of drones and robotics and the importance of education to meet future job demands.

Registration for this event includes membership into the Sacramento Region chapter of the Drone Pilots Federation.

UPDATE October 10th - All attendees will be entered to win door prizes for a Family Admission to Powerhouse Science Center (3 available) and free licenses for ActionDirector video production software from Cyberlink (20 available)!  Click here for details on the ActionDirector promotion (it also includes an opportunity for a free upgrade!)
