I am happy to announce that CoCoFest 2022 will be free to attend next year. You will still need to pay the $15 in club dues if you wish to be a member of the Glenside Color Computer Club. This will allow you vote in the meetings, and for the club officers. The cost of tables will be the same as last year, $20 for the first table and $15 for each additional table. When you purchase tables, it will include the membership to the club for 2022 for the person that purchased the tables. The price for the Saturday dinner will also be $20. Preregistration is strongly encouraged and, it will be available next month around January 15th.
I hope everyone is gearing up for an awesome CoCo Holiday Season. Have you decided on a new hardware peripheral or a recently released game or utility for your system? If not, as they say, there is still time!
From a club perspective, December represents the calm before the storm. Though efforts have already begun, January will see Grant Leighty (our new CoCoFEST Coordinator) focus his efforts on our 2022 30th Anniversary event. I know Grant is looking for volunteers and ideas, so please go to our show page (https://www.glensideccc.com/cocofest-2022/) to help and offer suggestions. While we have not officially opened the exhibit and speaker reservations, the room block is open for reservations, so consider grabbing a room before the rush!
I know we just completed our 29th anniversary show in November, and the holiday season is upon us, but I’m hoping to schedule another holiday virtual open house before the year ends. Stay tuned for more details. As before, it will be come as you are, where you are, no preparation needed.
We will open the call early at 6:30PM as in previous months for some time to catch up and say hello to new faces.
We have a few business items on the agenda, though I am happy to add items of discussion interest.
