Deborah was the docent for the museum on 10/23/2021 had 15 high interest
visitors. This is highly unusual, but most welcome. Perhaps the lasting
effects of VCF East for those who heard about and couldn't make the show.
Usually this time of year we get very few visitors and usually they are of
low interest, but we have had increasing numbers of high interest visitors.
It is expected that visitors will be high in December as the model train
show will be coming in InfoAge again.

Today I met a 17 year old who was an exhibitor at VCF West, who goes to
school in Connecticut and has a massive interest in IBM computers. His
family currently lives in Boca Raton and knows about a quarter century club
where former (current?) IBMers meet to socialize.

A second 17 year old came by and had a massive interest in mainframe
computers and is interested in becoming Bill Dromgoole's Univac 1219
apprentice. This will benefit us a lot to have an additional person who
knows about this machine and can operate and demo the machine.

After docenting today, I went to the warehouse to organize the VCF East
stuff so that it will be ready for Festivus and VCF East 2022 (April

That is all for now. Please drive through.
