Here's what I'm bringing for sure:

My Coleco ADAM and assorted softs CV and ADAM
My LYNX and Rampart.

I was going to sell copies of my Beanie Baby Bash hack for the 2600, but I cannot get them in time for the event, alas. :(

Is anyone bringing an ST at all, or are we keeping this strictly console?

A quick heads up about Advance payments:
the payment deadline for 5.00 is June 30th after that the fee goes to $8.00
Tables fees still remain the same.
be sure to pay for your admission soon.

Dan, I'm sending my check out today for two tables.

I'll be there with some stuff showing what the C64 community is up to, and plugging the Fall Commodore Expo (at the same location in October).

I'll also be selling Atari & Coleco stuff...maybe some Commodore stuff too. I've just got way too much stuff that I never use anymore.

I think the only ADAM item I have is a game that says "ADAM" on it instead of just Colecovision, sorry. I will, however, be selling a Colecovision system, games, and expansion packs (the steering wheel and the Atari 2600 adapter) if you're interested.

I see something on your trade list about a boxed Channel F. I'm not really interested in buying, but I would LOVE to see a Channel F box in the "flesh".

Maybe we could have a Spitfire tournament! :)

just want to say despite a low turn out the first annual VGS turned out pretty good.
(once again I forgot to bring my digicamera,but I belive some others took pictures though)
saddlythe schedule I had planned orginally didn't come out good
I still have lots of items left over.
it was good to see goat store and rpm-games. we had two people with tables outside the room. my orginal planned layout was passed soI just if people neeed the power and placed them by the outlets.
we did have three winners for touneys:
Dan loosen was the big winner of the jagfest prize package(AUN t-shirt,30.00 Giftcertificate from pack rat vg and a copy of the DP collectors guide)
others winners was paul zimmerman who won the space treat competition
(copy of space treat delux and a Atari age t-shirt)
Rob M won the 2k2 mwc edition of warring worms and an atari age t-shirt
(he didn't enter but he played space treat and I figured since nobody entered the Warring worms tourney I figured give the person who came in second in space treat)
Tom L had his Lynx collection displayed and brought a good drawl to jagfest area.
it was good hear bud melvin play his banjo along with his gameboy.
bohus had a good display.
over all it was pretty good for a first time for show.
(theres a chance I might have it again next year)
I'll have a full report up on my website in a three or four days.

Dan - nice job on the show :thumbsup: . I know that there were not a lot of people there, but it is a start. I got some good deals, plus I got to meet a few people from the AA group. You also did a nice job on the newsletter that you passed out. I use to run a hamfest (ham radio and computer swap meet) for a few years, so I know how much work goes in to running something like this. If you plan on doing this again next year I'll PM you a few ideas.
