Google doesn't know everything!  :P   It is on for this Saturday, October 15 at the Evanston Public Library (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, I think) on Orrington Ave.  There's also the usual Friday night dinner and drinking at Nevin's Pub on Sherman across from the Holiday Inn (was Best Western) at 6ish.  Pub crawl late Saturday night and hangover breakfast Sunday AM.

Hey, is there any place around the library where I can park my car for the duration of the pub crawl?

There's a parking lot behind the library, I think.  I don't remember whether it's metered or some other arrangement.

Same weekend as the Pinball Expo in Wheeling on Milwaukee Rd. Pretty close by though, so some of you could make both!

The library web site used to have information about parking.  The last time I attended, the meters had been consolidated into those electronic kiosk contraptions.

 

And as Hal will usually remind people, if you park in the underground area, be sure to move your car before the parking area closes... or you won't be going anywhere until the next morning.

hrmmmm depending upon drinking decisions, this might not be such a bad thing.

Cost is currently $80 for an assembled board shipped to a US address, with actual shipping added for other countries.  Jim http://atariage.com/...r/27541-ksarul/

 is selling them directly and I have the bare boards in stock at arcadeshopper if you prefer to solder your own.

Here's their web page. A lot of the data still shows the 2015 Faire for some reason--but the hotel list along with the map to find them and the Faire are all good.

Berry Harmsen and me already arrived in Evanston. So far we have an excellent time with Hal Shanafield and his wife.

On Friday is the get together for dinner and drinks around 6:00 PM at Nevin's Pub across Sherman Street from the Holiday Inn (was Best Western).

 

Thank you Hal to have this opportunity to meet and have fun with the TI every year.

It is one thing to share thoughts, ideas and passion over the net, but it is a whole another level if you are able to meet those people in person.

At the Faire I will be doing a demo of stuff I was working on the past year.

 

The Faire will be broadcasted here:

See you there,

Klaus
