what's be the best way to get organised? are there enough people with
keys to do a formal party? or would something ad hoc be better?

A formal key-signing party would ideally have prepared lists of
fingerprints sent to the coordinator before the event, and I don’t t hink
there is enough time before SFD to do this.

Because of the nature of the event we don’t have a fixed list of poe ple
going (except maybe a core who have said they’ll be there).

For these reasons I’d go for ad-hoc.

My advice would be to hold a workshop (or two) first. Then numbers
won't be so much of a problem.

I think workshops would be useful, but I think the idea of people being
shown how, followed by generating their own keys, and then doing the
verification for signing is iffy.

Agreed but the actual keys don't have to be generated at the workshop.

Ideally, people should create their keys in private, on a system they
trust, and not in a public place connected to public wireless.

Again, 100% agree.

Maybe we can do the workshops for SFD and follow up with a key-signing
event another time?

I'm not sure about this. A formal workshop at the MDDA is the best place for this in my opinion.

Obviously, for those of us who already have keys, we can still exchange
fingerprints at SFD.

Of course. The workshops will be happening regardless so it's up to you.

simple system that works.—John Gall
