my own collection and it only fills two shelving units. Go MARCHins!

volunteer about once a month if I were able, it is a moot point because I
live 3000 miles to the west of you. I've seen introductory posts from
several other far-flung members in the year or two I've been on this list,
so at a guess maybe 50 of those 350 aren't really an option to start with.
Granted, that still leaves around 295 out of 300 who are not so helpful
as everyone might wish?
A handful of you may remember my posts around May 2011 concerning the
founding of the Seattle Retro-Computing Society. It's been a great
success, but I think part of that is because the only commitment people
need to put in is the travel time to get to the meetings. (We have
attendees from up to 4 hours away at most meetings, and occasionally even
further, such as a friend who recently flew up from San Diego on his day
off.) I'm sure our participation rates would be far below yours if we had
large amounts of work that needed doing, as MARCH does.
I wish you all possible luck scaring up some more help,
