Fred, who is our InfoAge contact, told me tonight that having a MARCH seat
on his board of directors -- as Bill D. suggested in the club chat last
night -- is exactly what he had in mind. He's also prepared to sign a
simple contract stipulating that whatever InfoAge and MARCH each bring to
the museum remains their respective property, etc.
Saturday, Aug. 13 is InfoAge's official "grand opening" event. Several
community groups, Boy Scouts, politicians, local bigwigs, perhaps students,
radio guys, and representatives from the various other groups involved with
InfoAge will all be present. If we can evaluate a decent chunk of the
existing InfoAge (Grabbe) collection before that time, then Fred would like
us to prepare a few simple exhibits for the public event. I and/or other
MARCH'ers can explain our hobby to the attendees, reporters, etc. We're
also invited to have TCF-like exhibits, if anyone wants to do that again,
though on a much smaller scale.
At the least, I will attend as a MARCH representative. At best, I'd love to
see several of you attend as well.
Sometime before that (perhaps the day before?), we can start evaluating the
(static, for now) Grabbe collection. If not on that Friday, then Fred would
like us to visit on a weekend, as our plans of going on a weekday (from last
night's chat) do not fit in his schedule.
