Congratulations on a successful event. I had wanted to be there, but it just didn't work out to be possible this time around.

The first anniversary event yesterday at Kennett Classic was successful
and the new exhibits were (more or less) completed on time. Today? Take
it easy. (and Go Eagles!). I am very thankful to my friends from System
Source and VCFed who came to support the event and the growing local
vintage computing community who stopped by. The weather wasn't perfect but
the swap was open the entire day. I greatly appreciate the effort everyone
made load/unload swap tables with quality items for sale. We all wore
masks and kept it safe. Thank you Evan K for the donation of portable
computing artifacts, manuals and books. (Posted to facebook)
Yes we must deal with Covid 19, but there is nothing wrong with working now
for the time when people can travel and visit without a @#$%! mask, which
takes a toll on our events and museum traffic.
I am going to work on a "vintage computing map" brochure handout containing
points of interest related to computing and technology history within the
MidAtlantic that groups/members can hand out to visitors of our various
museums and possibly other museums and hotels, etc. The MidAtlantic has
the Large Scale Systems Museum in the west (Pittsburgh), Info Age in the
East (Wall NJ). System Source (Baltimore), Kennett Classic (Kennett Sq)
and the hopefully opening soon Computer Church museum (Parkesburg PA ) are
all on the Route 1 corridor between Baltimore and Philadelphia. There are
also a number of more broadly "technology" oriented museums and centers
that can be included as well.
If anyone wants to work with me on this project contact me privately. Step
one, build a list of the points of interest and gather visual materials
(photos and maps).
