On Saturday we had the first Wellington Region Vintage Computing meet, held at The Office cafe, Marine Parade, Paraparaumu. This was the second meet organised through the New Zealand Vintage Computer Forums.
We had a turnout of six vintage computing enthusiasts, and my son Callum came along for the ride.

I had suggested that we each bring something to show off; I brought my 8800micro, Philip had his Tandy Model 102 with NADSbox, Terry brought a PetDisk
SD card interface for the Commodore Pet, Mike brought a Sinclair ZX80
still in its polystyrene box and Matt had a keyboard faceplate for a rubber key Sinclair ZX Spectrum

We spent a couple of hours chatting about all things vintage, and I started having SD card problems again. I had a great time, and look forward to the next meet
