        Announcing the First Annual Vintage Computer Festival!
        ------------------------------------------------------

Mark your calendars!  The first ever public celebration of vintage
computers will take place at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton,
California this October 25th and 26th.

The Vintage Computer Festival (VCF) is the first event of its kind
anywhere in the world.  This two day festival will feature presentations
and workshops by notable computer industry figures and vintage computer
hobbyists.  There will also be an on-site, hands-on vintage computer
exhibition.  Experiment with the classic computers of yesteryear!

Each year a computer from the past is placed in the Vintage Computer
Spotlight.  This year we focus on the Apple ][.  To celebrate the 20th
anniversary of this classic, we will be giving away an original Apple ][
personal computer!  Each person who attends the VCF is automatically
entered into the drawing!

Both seasoned and new computer collectors will enjoy workshops and
panels to share ideas and learn about finding, acquiring, restoring,
and enjoying vintage computers.

The VCF also features the Vintage Computer Flea Market.  Find those old
computers, peripherals, manuals, and programs you've been looking for!
The flea market is the ideal way for new comers to the field to start
their own collection or for seasoned collectors to add to their existing
stash.

Celebrate the good old days of computing!  Attend the First Annual Vintage
Computer Festival!!!
