Too bad I didn't read this till today. :( How did it go? I have a few vintage systems I could bring next year if you do this again. :)

It was a lot of fun! By chance, a boy scout troop came for pizza after an outing and ended up playing a lot of games :) Great time showing the kids old hardware!

 

Would be great to have more machines next time. I talked with one of the troop leaders who is also a member of River City Labs (Peoria makerspace) and he wanted to try getting something together sooner than next year, probably at the makerspace.

I saw this, but think I had something going on that day. I live only 2 hours or so away.

I had a blast. Do you guys do other events in the area?

We do this once a year. There was some chatter about getting together at River City Labs makerspace in Peoria, but nothing solid.
