This year's Vintage Computer Festival East will be held September 12-13 at the InfoAge Science Center located in Wall, New Jersey.

VCF is a public event celebrating the history of computers from the 1940s - 1980s.  The morning schedule is for lectures and workshops;
the afternoons are an open exhibit hall where everything is turned on and working.

Among this year's highlights are the keynote address about RCA computers in the 1950s, an 8-bit musical concert, BASIC programming
challenge, and the build-your-own terminal workshop.

Details are posted athttp://www.vintage.org/2009/east/  where you'll also find the latest VCF news.  A 2-minute video montage of last
year's show is on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mNXrKjiD78.

Or refer to the simple event brochure at http://www.vintage.org/2009/east/vcfe6.pdf   Tickets are $10 for one day or $15 for both days; 17 and younger get in free.

The event benefits the InfoAge Science Center, which is a 501c3 non-profit.

Thank you,
- Evan Koblentz

     The VCF East is has finished for this year, and it was the most successful one ever.  Plenty of money gathered for MARCH.  My table won for the best for a first-time VCF East exhibiter.

                 Hooray!

     On Saturday alone, they earned over $1,600!

     It was all due to the fact that dozens and dozens of people wanted to play Shredz64 on the Guitar Hero guitar connected to the C64 via the PSX64 adapter.  People were just amazed!  They were taking photographs and video of those playing on it, and Internet reporters were hovering around busily taking notes in their notepads.
