Glenside Color Computer Club Picnic


The Glenside Color Computer Club, Inc. picnic is October 22nd, 2022. It is from 1:00 PM to late. It is at Woodfield mall in Schaumburg, IL. It will start in the food court and then move to the Enterrium. The Enterrium is a restaurant, bar, arcade, and bowling alley.

If you park in the 3 story east parking lot (next to Macy’s) then you can go in the mail entrance or you can go in the Enterrium entrance. If you go in the mall entrance then you can ride the escalator to the 2nd floor and find the food court. There is also an elevator to the 2nd floor. If you take the Enterrium entrance then you can take the stairs to the second floor or you can take the elevator to the 2nd floor. Then walk out the back door and you will be in the food court. If you plan to stay past 7:30 PM then you should use the Enterrium entrance because the mall closes at 8:00 PM. Enterium is open from 12:00 PM to 12:00 AM.

It can be hard too at times to find a seat in the Enterrium restaurant, but if we use the food court restaurants then we should be ok. You will need to buy your own food, there are several restaurants to choose from. The Enterrium will sell you a plastic card for about $20.00. You can play video games and pinball games until the money runs out. The games cost between $1.00 and $3.00 each. Bowling:  $100/Hour per Lane with Shoe Rental Included.

The video games include games such as PAC-MAN, Qix, Dig Dug, One of the PAC-MAN games lets you start out at level 255. There is also a version of PAC-MAN this will let 4 people pay at the same time, competing against one another.

Woodfield Mall is handicap accessible. I am not sure if the video games are considered handicap accessible.

I would like for people to let me know if they are coming and how many people they are bringing with them.

Glenside Club Meeting: *NEW MEETING DATE* Thursday October 6, 2022 @ 7:30PM Central

As noted in our August meeting, to accommodate more of our members, we’re moving our meeting date from the third Thursday of the month to the first Thursday. If you’ve been unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts and this eases them, I hope you can join us.

For myself and no doubt others in our community, September passed by in a blur. Along with other classic computers, the CoCo was well represented at the Vintage Computer Festival Midwest in Chicago, and both our club and the CoCo made appearances at the recent Tandy Assembly in Springfield, OH. Though for some, the travel is a bit onerous, meeting familiar faces and sharing time together at these shows is a welcome respite from the tedium of life. That said, as I sit here after having just spent the last few hours unpacking from the Tandy Assembly trip, the after trip unpacking blues are real :-). (and I didn’t take that much to either show…)

All that said, I apologize that the rush of events delayed my sharing the results of our September officer nominations and explaining the lack of a voting period this month. For our 2022-23 officers, I was nominated as President, and I want to congratulate John Mark Mobley on his nomination for 2022-23 Vice President and Eric Canales on his nomination for Treasurer. Nominations for those 3 offices were closed during the meeting, and since there was only 1 nominee for each office, no voting was required. For Secretary, no nomination was made, so the nominations were left open. I’ll once again ask for nominations for this position at the October meeting, and I believe we have one interested member to nominate. If you are also interested in the position, there’s still time to be nominated. I don’t know how often Glenside’s had no contested office positions in the past, but I can confirm the frustrating rumor I heard at Tandy Assembly that no one ran for any of the offices this year is untrue. As always, if you have concerns about the process, please reach out to either an officer or board member.

With the CoCoFEST! venue change and pricing increases, CoCoFEST! coordinator Grant Leighty will share more details this month on table fees, admission fee considerations, and other income source discussions. The hotel room block is already open for room reservations, and I know Grant and Randy Weaver are hoping to have table reservations available in November.

For those in the Chicago area, we’ll also discuss dinner/get together interest and dates, if desired. The increasingly spread out nature of the club poses logistics challenges for face-to-face events, but where there’s interest, there’s solutions!

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.
