Is the Chicago Faire always in October?  Is there a mailing list to join, for when announcements are made for 2018's?

It is not always in October.  In fact, it has been around the first weekend in November the last few years and I think Hal Shanafield (the Faire's organizer) said it will be November 10 next year.  The problem with scheduling is usually Northwestern's football schedule.  If there is a big game in town, there are no places to stay in Evanston.

Hmmm, opening day of gun season for deer here in Kentucky.

 

Hopefully, bow hunting will be fruitful.

November is so much more doable than October for me!

If the event can be expanded to two days would more people commit to attend?

I'll throw this out again, it might stick one year.  Charge people something like $20 admission and use the money to rent a conference room at a hotel.  You could probably also get a block-rate since everyone coming from out of town have to get rooms anyway.  We could get access Friday night for setup and anyone who wanted to start early.  Then we would have all day on Saturday, 8am to 8pm or later.  No interruptions, no other groups sharing the room, no shutting down at 4:30pm, etc.  For a bonus, charge a little more (or maybe not necessary, depends on the number of people), and have the room until something like noon on Sunday too.

 

I would easily pay $30 or $40 for attendance to a retro-computer event that started Friday night and went all day Saturday and possibly half a day on Sunday.  Some people travel literally thousands of miles to come, and the current one-day limited-hours event is way too short.

 

Just my opinion.
