I've never gone to one yet but I'm definitely interested in meeting all of you for some vintage gaming someday.

I can bring my TI-99/4A, S-Video/Stereo modded 2600, Colecovision w/128-in-1 USB flash cart, Atari Stunt Cycle, Atari Video Pinball, or what have you. :)

The Swap meets usually happen about 3 - 4 times a year. There are also several gatherings at Funspot in Laconia, NH that occur every once in a while. The next one is coming up in October 3rd. You can check out pics from this event last year at VGO Funspot Event 2008. Finally, my girl and I have classic console parties everyone once in a while as well. Should be one coming up sometime in October. I will post here when we have a date.

Awesome pictures!

Funspot was THE place to game back in the day. When I used to go snowboarding back in the mid-80s, we would drive up and stay in my parents old and beat up trailer in North Conway, NH. My friend used to stay over in Meredith which was really nice and we were in a no-so-classy area. Anyway, we'd go snowboarding for the day, come home, wash up, then meet up at Funspot and game until they closed at midnight. Those were the days!

I look forward to meeting everyone and creating some new memories. I love that Donkey Kong II but man is it freakin HARD.

Last time I was up in June 2009, a lot of the pins were not functional. I hope they fix them up because I'm a huge pin fan too. I own a Comet and Black Knight which I keep at my parents house since I don't have the room for them in my current home. I do however have a Kickman stand-up in the corner of my living room. :)

Take care,
Trem

I am having a video game BBQ on Sunday, Oct 18 in celebration of my birthday. If anyone is interested in attending, pm me for info. This gathering will be more about playing than trading, but we can always make it into a mini-swap meet if folks want to.

Unfortunately, Sundays are a no go for me, due to lack of transportation in my area.
