Wow, less than 2 weeks away and not a single reply to this thread? Is anyone else going?


While I'm not thrilled with the ticket prices this year, it's a once-a-year thing for me so the increase doesn't matter that much. Judging by the website and social media, I'm sure it will be well attended, but thin on the older consoles/computers. Still, the vendors always have something of interest from every era, it seems. I'm still kicking myself over passing on some of one of those cheap Atari 800s and XLs there last year. Holding out hope that whomever that vendor was will be back with another stack of old Commodore and Atari 8 bit "untested" machines for cheap.

I'll be there bright and early tomorrow morning! I've been to every CGF since it began and it's amazing how big it's gotten. The first ones were just a bunch of sweaty people crowded around CRTs for N64 Smash Bros. competitions. Now, we've got the man, Billy Mitchell himself, speaking! Should be a great weekend.
