32574RE: Friday tech lectures @ VCF East?
- Oct 1, 2013
Friday morning would be difficult for me, I don't think I'd want to add another overnight stay and the drive from Massachusetts seems to take seven hours at my speed. That said, sessions in the afternoon would be a no-brainer.

** Hypothetically ** ... if we add Friday to the VCF East schedule, and
if we fill that day with awesome how-to sessions, would you take the
extra day off work / travel / attend?
Sessions would probably be skills-based, not machine-based, because
there are so many different interests/brands that we couldn't please
everyone -- that is why we have beginner's classes during the main part
of the show (Apple II for Dummies, etc.)
For example, on Friday there could be how-to classes on subjects such as
o-scopes, power supplies, cosmetic restoration, assembly programming,
memory, disk drives, teletype machines, etc.
We'd want to hear "I'll be there!" from a bunch of people before we
commit to this idea. VCF East is MARCH's major annual fundraiser, so
there is some risk involved if we open a third day and not enough people go.
At least one high-ranking MARCHin -- I'm not saying who! :) -- told me,
"Nobody wants to sit through classes all day". I respectfully disagree.
This would be a morning/afternoon schedule. That way, people can set up
their exhibits, consignment sales, etc. in the evening.
Constructive comments encouraged! :)
