      Wilmington Vintage Computer Swap Meet
      www.marchclub.org/swapmeet.htm

      ANYONE PLANNING TO BE AT THE EVENT EARLY (BEFORE 10AM Sat or Friday) PLEASE
      CONTACT ME TO COORDINATE LOAD IN. ASSISTANTS WANTED.
      I (BIll D) plan to work on set up Friday and I already have a lot of items
      stored at my office down the street for easy transport.

      Here are some tips for the Wilmington intage computer swap meet this
      Saturday Oct 7th:

      -Bring a dolly/cart.
      *-Almost everyone who attends the event will have the opportunity to take
      something home with them.
      *-This is a good event to trade, buy and sell items that are heavy (like
      printers and monitors), or are fragile like S-100 systems.
      *-You're not allowed to leave any items behind! No exceptions.
      *-Do not assume that your donation will be accepted by MARCH, there may not
      be room to take everything.

      -=Make it worth your trouble
      *-If you're going to take the trouble to cart a bunch of stuff to the
      swapmeet, you might as well clean it to maximize it's sale/trade value.
      *-Parts are great, but also bring some good working items that you have
      doubles of; you don't want to regret not bringing something to bargain with,
      especially if you don't have a lot of cash.
      *-If possible be prepared to identify and discuss the operational status of
      the items you're selling (or ask someone to help).
      *-If you're trying to sell an entire system, include the software/power
      cords, etc.
      *- If you're not going to burn the place down, set up the item and power it
      on!

      -=The Auction: 2:30
      -. The best/clean/working/complete/boxed items will be selected for the
      auction.
      -.Anyone can participate in the auction as a buyer or seller - please ask if
      you want to include your item in the auction.
      -. We're going to wait until the day of the event to select the items for
      the auction, so potentially any item can be auctioned. See the swapmeet
      listing (www.marchclub.org/swapmeet_listing.cfm)
      -. You can also sell/trade items that are scheduled for the auction.
      If a scheduled item is sold/traded the item will simply be removed from the
      final list. This way sellers have two ways to sell their items.

      ANYONE PLANNING TO BE AT THE EVENT EARLY (BEFORE 10AM) PLEASE CONTACT ME TO
      COORDINATE LOAD IN
