RE: [midatlanticretro] VCF East 4.0 exhibit / vendor registration is OPEN!
- Hey guys ... PLEASE start signing up for your VCF East booths. Please
do not procrastinate. This is really important for our show marketing
Just go to vintage.org, create your account, fill in the blanks. I know
many of you are still deciding the details of your exhibits. It is okay
to just enter one or two sentence for the description. That's better
than having possible attendees visit the site and seeing just four
exhibitors. You can always fill in more details later.

Subject: [midatlanticretro] VCF East 4.0 exhibit / vendor registration
The VCF East 4.0 web site at www.vintage.org is now ready for use. The
event, in case you forgot, is TWO days this year -- June 9-10.
Exhibit booths and vendor booths cost the same. (At past VCFs it cost a
more for a vendor booth than for an exhibit booth.)
The single-booth fees are:
$15 for paid MARCH members ($5 cheaper than last year)
$25 for everyone else
Discounts may be available for people who reserve multiple booths.
We'll have almost twice as much physical space as last year, so we want
many exhibitors as possible. We'll accept vendors but that really is
PLEASE SIGN UP EARLY. AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.
Even if you only have a general idea so far of your exhibit topic,
fine. Go ahead and sign up. It makes life much easier for us in
and marketing the event. If everyone waits until the last minute, then
public will go to the VCF web site and see what appears to be very
participation, and decide not to attend. Conversely, if people sign up
early, it builds excitement for the event.
Everyone will get much more "elbow room" this year. I promise.

VCF. That means I want to sell stuff. If MARCH members (or list
members) want to buy something from me, please look over my Web site
and encourage me to bring some items. I have a tremendous number of
items on my site which were built before 1992. See if anything I offer
on my site, worth more than about $25, is of interest.
Contact me privately by email, unless you think your comments or
requests would be of general interest in this maillist.
I put a twenty-five dollar "floor" on items I'll bring, simply to
conserve space and effort. After all, small cheap items can be ordered
and mailed cheaply, directly from me.
General items I'd LIKE to bring include all my SGI equipment, much of
it is large, and it would not be expensive. Some older Apple Mac stuff
might be of interest. I have some test equipment, for those who do
repair, but few "comuterists" seem to go in this direction. I have
some odds and ends at the IBM PC computer board level, and some small
collections of Multibus, VME bus, and STDbus cards. And a few odd
desktop computers. (I have a few early IBM PC's for that matter, any
If I assemble a list of "likely items", I'll post a link here. If
MARCH posts a Web page of attending vendors (!), I'll put some info
