I collect some of the old machines too ever since my late brother bought
our first kit in the 70's, Altair 680, which I still kept. But I haven't
made it to any ot the VCF shows yet. I'm planning to make the VCF
MidWest show some time. I think it's real challenge to get more of the
general public to attend. but I think if you get a higher attendance
from enthusiasts alone it would be a success.
The entertainment and Door Prize is really a good idea. The one guy who
said don't make it loud, I think is important, nothing like talking over
the music. The one idea that mentioned about vintage computer games is
also a good thing to do, especially the original ASCII games. One thing
that would be nice to see at the VCF, but probably difficult to find,
are some of the memoriablia reproduced from back then(70's). I don't now
if you already had planned to have vendors at VCF, with items such as
T-shirts, posters with ASCII art, or from George Beker.
