     Set-up time for Maker Faire is 7:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, and the official hours are from 10 to 4.  We are Exhibit #21 and have two tables in a meeting room.  Hardware is changing.  Now it will be a C64, an Amiga 2000, a C128, a VIC-20, and an Atari 800 (!).

     Big success!  Our tables were visited by dozens and dozens and dozens of parents, children, couples, and other interested people!  They wanted to play with machines and talk about the computers.  The librarians seemed very pleased that our tables had attracted a crowd.  I'll write them a thank you message.
     Thanks to the librarians and the middle school/high school volunteers who helped me move equipment from my station wagon in the morning and then back to the car in the afternoon.  Thanks to Jerold Kress who shared the tables with me and demonstrated his C64 with Cynthcart to the excited crowd, and thanks to SCCAN member Mario L. for bringing in the SCCAN flyers and hanging around to help for awhile.
     Photos to come!

         Planning for a return next year,
