      Is it a one or two day event this year ?

      If needed, I could bring something along to make up the numbers. My Spare Time Gizmos SBC6120 will be complete by then - I could run that with a vintage terminal of some sort, or I could dig out an HP-87 or a Vaxstation or even an HP64000, although they're quite big. I also have quite a decent functioning HP plotter that could be demo'd.

      I never seem to have time to do a full-on VCF exhibit but something like this would be great, and I'm half an hour away from TCF.

      Trenton Computer Fest is early this year -- Saturday, March 16.

      Bill Deg. had a great idea: MARCH should have a large presence there, like we did in 2005, because we're not doing VCF this year. That gives club members a chance to show off a little bit.

      But it's only a month away. So I have a few ideas.

      My fallback idea, if there isn't enough member participation, is I could basically just bring our museum's homebrew exhibit and set it up at Trenton. Instant awesomeness, just add nerds. Maybe I'll rent a truck and also bring our home micros exhibit.

      However I'd rather have a bunch of MARCHins there exhibiting your own stuff, and then a group dinner somewhere.

      Degnan? Andy? Corey? Sudbrink? Gesswein? Chapman? Kelly? Herb? Dromgoole? Ian? Sridhar? Etc. ....

      Let the discussion begin.
