Anyone up for a summer National meet in Wellington?

Postby lizardb0y on Fri Sep 14, 2012 7:32 am

Over Summer this year there are two exhibitions running that may be of interest to vintage computing enthusiasts:

Game Masters, Te Papa, 15 December 2012 – 28 April 2013, http://www.tepapa.govt.nz/WhatsOn/exhib ... sters.aspx
Arcade: Homegrown Video Games, Dowse Art Museum, 10 November 2012 – 3 March 2013, http://www.dowse.org.nz/en/Exhibitions/ ... ns/Arcade/

There are group discounts to the Game Masters exhibition ($14 ea for groups of 10+) and the Dowse exhbition is free.

With these coinciding with many people's summer holidays, it occurs to me that this might be a great opportunity to have some sort of small national get-together in Wellington. I'm thinking of a small private gathering of enthusiasts.

If enough people express an interest, I'd be happy to look into things like accommodation and other trips and activities that could be of interest. Trip in a vintage Wellington City bus to the Silverstream Steam Railway perhaps?

Only two other people have expressed an interest so far! You'd best get cracking if you're interested ;)
