Trying to gauge individual interest in the Chicago 2020 fair this year with the pandemic issues we are all experiencing.  If you are going, please post a note where you may be staying as Allen indicated he would not be organizing a Friday evening gathering.

 

If you were planning on demonstrating something, please post what the subject content may be.

 

Thanks.

I'm asking the above poll to get a feel how many die-hard TI'ers are still going to show up this year as there were some postings in the last 2 weeks where a couple of people indicated the health risk was too high for them personally.

 

Between "quarantines", individuals with personal health issues,  and international travel restrictions, trying to gauge whether to personally commit to a demonstration myself.

Can we use ZOOM from Home?

That is beyond me to answer.  I know in past years they have streamed the event, but I do not know what tool(s) they use.

 

Myself,  I always enjoy the camaraderie meeting everyone and getting away from home for a couple of days and look forward to the trip.  It also gives me the opportunity to pick up a few items that others are selling.

I hate breaking my attendance string, but this 77-(by Faire time)-year-old body will not be taking the risk this year.

The Chicago TI User Group just received word from the Evanston Public Library that the space in which the Chicago TI International World Faire is ordinarily held will be unavailable until next year. We had reserved the room almost one year ago, but due to COVID 19, all activities at the Library are now cancelled. We are, therefore exploring the idea of having a virtual Faire this year. We would like to assess the interest in such an event, and further, who would be interested in presenting a seminar, either with a video, or possibly live, albeit remotely. I would appreciate a response in private mail to hals12 @hotmail.com as soon as possible. The date for the virtual Faire remains as previously published, October 24, 2020.  —Hal Shanafield, CTIUG Faire Chairman

All fine. But this private mail stuff. Why all the secrecy ? Control ? Isn't it a thing of the past ?

How about a sub poll, I'd like to attend a virtual Chicago Fair as an attendee, not a presenter.

Maybe ask if people wanted to buy a t-shirt as a way of showing support?

I think it's easier to manage attendance via private email instead of having to scan a long thread on AA interspersed with random comments. Let's leave conspiracy theories alone, shall we? :lol:

It is easier to manage. Hal (my dad) does not have an Atariage account, so I have been posting for him to try to help put together a virtual Faire for the group this year. He would like anyone that would like to present something to email him so he can put the presenter schedule together. We will post details on how to attend at a later date. --John

Opry99er once try and help, but was left out in the cold. So yes, it does indeed seem to be about control. Democracy vs. control. I know what's the easier option. ;)

Is it clear or it is unclear ? :lol:

 

That was traveling to the fair and then presenting.  Not the same thing.

 

I can present, but it is really going to boil down to what is presented based upon whether we use Zoom or not.

I could try to attend, on a video feed, out here in the boondocks, but doubt the success of that venture.
