Pittsburgh Vintage Computer Exhibit  
Sun.Jun.7th,
Breezeshooters Hamfest

We're holding a vintage computer exhibit at the Breezeshooters Hamfest next month, Sun.Jun.7th. We'll have a bunch of early electronics, computers, and video games from the 70's and early 80's on display - even some that you can play with. We'll have a bigger display than last year with about 25 machines on display. If anyone would like to bring anything for the exhibit, feel free to let me know and I'll make room.

The Hamfest is the largest in the tristate area, also with 30acres of flea market space--only $5 admission. We'll be located indoors in bldg.2. The address is below

So if you're in the western Pennsylvania region, come out and shoot the breeze.
