Topic for details on the upcoming TI-99/4A Fest West 2018.
----------- I will update Post #1 as things solidify (Updated Dec 17th, 2017) ----------
Date - Saturday April 28th 2018
I do have a location reserved. In the Klickitat room on the 4th floor of the Vancouver Community Library, Vancouver WA.
This is a zero cost event, contingent on us not selling things or taking donations... so I'll be doing none of that. It is free to attend, and open to walk-ins.
I counted 18 people at last years event. The room is 20 by 30 feet. so that's 33 square feet per person We should be able to accommodate tables for anyone wanting to setup a system (PM me if you do want tablespace)
We can have the room from 10 - 5:30 ( I'll need from 5:30 to 6 to restore everything and checkout ), and really I'll need 10-10:15 or your assistance, to move tables around, and herd the chairs.
I plan to setup a presentation workstation for us to share. And I'm playing with some gear so that hopefully by April, I'll be setup to live stream to Youtube.
We'll plan to kick off 1st presentation at 11am... If you know you want to spend some time in the spotlight, PM me. When those who have pre-arranged are done, if there is time left, we can give any spontaneous presenters a shot, and follow that with free time.
I'm thinking a social hour (or 1.5 hours as it is) from 12:30 to 2pm with no presentations during that time, to accommodate lunch. There are several restaurants 2 blocks to the west. People can group up and wander off, or you can bring a sack lunch and snack in the room. I'll be staying in the room for security.
- 10am - 11am : Doors open, and room setup, systems setup, mingle...
- 11am - 12:30pm : Introductions, scheduled presentations
- 12:30pm - 2pm : Go eat, stay and mingle, come back and mingle...
- 2pm - 5:30pm : more presentations, and/or whatever the day brings us!
- 5:30pm - 6:00pm : Make the room look like we were never there.
- 6:00pm : Library is closed.
There is parking on site. And it'll be Saturday, so their week-day 2 hour parking limit does not apply. There is also a parking garage just a block to the south.
If you want to set up a computer, please let me know (PM me) by end of February, so I can arrange for extra tables if necessary, and make sure you have an outlet. BYO-PowerStrip
