Hi all, getting to be that time again and I'm calling for list members
that would like to show off their collections at this year's Midwest
Gaming Classic. The MGC is the largest electronic entertainment expo in
the Midwest (and one of the largest in the country), dedicated to
computers, consoles, video arcades and pinballs from past to present.
Just to clarify one list member's pre-concern in the past - this is not a
"kiddies" show. Though it is a family event, you will not have to deal
with "little kiddies" running around your eqiuipment. The bulk of the
2000+ attendees have been 25 and up.
Likewise, if you're looking to sell or get rid of equipment you no
longer want, this is the place to do it. We actually had a good ammount
of people specifically looking for vintage computer equipment last year.
The MGC is a two day show (June 9th and 10th) at the Olympia Resort and
Conference center (about 30 minutes outside of Milwaukee). Contact me for
more info or www.midwestgamingclassic.com.
I've worked hard the last 5 years building up the vintage computing
representation at the show, including displaying much of my own equipment
and archive material (I run the show museum). I'd love to see more list
members involved! Contact me directly for any queries, concerns, or
