Re: [midatlanticretro] MARCH events for 2009
Old ? I hack till past midnite after a days work--but not everyday, I'm getting up there too :)
One possibility is to have the dinner moved up to Fri.nite and leave Sat.nite open for the evening entertainment--and food :)
But maybe not everyone is in town yet by then.
Another is to move the dinner to late nite after the Sat evening entertainment--with just some snacks to hold everyone's appetite till dinner, maybe at 10 or 11pm

I don't recall Saturday nite as a black hole. Don't we have a traditional pizza party for the exhibitors? Oh, ok. Yes, my brain is atrophying. The pizza must be Friday nite after setup. There must be pizza in there somewhere or I would never attend. I like Dan's idea. A more formal(ly planned) activity for Saturday evening would be good. Filling this 'empty' time slot would encourage people from further afield (assuming anyone has any money left by September) and increase multi-day attendance. We have time to think about this...

Yes we are, but then the musicians could play remixes of chip
tunes. Here is an example: http://www.slayradio.org . This is an
internet radio station that just plays Commodore 64 remixes.
Also the theremin is a very old electronic instrument created in 1919!
