Memofest 2022 possible ? Where ? When ?

Post by Crazyboss »

Hi Guys.

The Covid situation here, seems to be under controll, many have been vacinated, and alot of people have had Covid lately, fortunally its the soft version which is less harmfull than a normal flue, most people recovers with in a week.

So is there any hope for a Memofest 2022 this year. And if so any suggestions to dates and places, as it is now I work some weekends.

I know its early to even think about a Memofest, and ofcause we could all be sendt back with a new strike from a yet unknown version of Covid. But at least we can try to plan and see if its possible.

The U.K. government has removed all COVID19 restrictions in England (health is devolved for elsewhere in the U.K. so the situation may be different in Scotland and Wales).

And some other ‘retro’ computer events are starting to plan in person physical events. So yes, it is reasonable to think about a Memofest later in 2022.

Fingers crossed that no new more aggressive strains of COVID19 appear.

OK, so I've been sorting out with Jim a date sometime after the school holidays to have a look at repairing an MTX or 3 and a couple of disc units.

SO if anyone else wants to come along and join in on the repairs, and maybe turn it into a full Memofest, the dates we're currently looking at are the weekend of 8th/9th October or weekend of 5th/6th November.

Anyone interested in visiting 1066 country either of those weekends?

NB Bonfire night in town will be the 15th October, so Nov 5th won't be as busy as in other parts of the county.

That’s a strange date for bonfire night :shock:
Is there some local reason for this?

In my part of the world, we have the Somerset Illuminated Carnivals, but these start on November 5th and continue through to the 19th.

Anyway, November 5th or 6th are the better dates for me.

Some blokes called Harold and William had a big bust up nearby in the middle of October 1066. So the bonfires are in commemoration of that.

Bust ups between Harrys and Williams seem to be a regular thing in royal circles !
