I normally go to it (I missed it last year, as it clashed with Dunstable Rally), having gone to the previous venue many times when it had been there.

I'll probably be there a bit before midday - I think I last went to the new place for a BATC Rally, that was once held there for a bit, so will hopefully see you there.

I have an interest in vintage computers and intend to be at RetroTech.

How was Retrotech? The last one I went to was about 15 years ago (it was called the NVCF at that time I think). I remember it as being quite chaotic. Back them my passion was wind-up gramophones and eBay hadn't fully killed the excitement of searching for that missing part . Was there much in the way of vintage computing on offer?
