Thinking of running a Cryptoparty

Hey guys, I’ve been meaning to run a cryptoparty for friends and acquaintances for some time, thinking i will actually make this happen in November, and wondered if anyone had experience of this or would be interested in collaborating and making it a public event rather than semi-private?

I’ve followed cryptoparty on twitter and messaged them about the idea, so there may be some collaboration with them anyway.
