Bussum 2007 - Registration opened

Autumn has always been that time of the year when a large MSX fair was being held in The Netherlands. First there was the famous Zandvoort fair, nine years ago, the Zandvoort organization teamed up with TNI to continue this event in Bussum. Since 2002, TNI has taken the entire fair organization upon them.

Bussum is currently the biggest MSX fair in The Netherlands. Usually all the key-players in the Dutch MSX scene are present, as well as a respectable amount of foreigners. Our photoshoot section gives a good impression of the recent Bussum fairs.

This year's Bussum fair will be held on Saturday October the 6th, and including the former Zandvoort fairs this will be the 19th time it's being held! As of today, the organization has opened the booth registration procedure again!

The location is the same as last year: Social-Cultural Center Uitwijk, Bussum, which is right in the center of The Netherlands. It's short walk from the nearby train station and there's usually sufficient parking space for those who come by car. The fair will be open to visitors at 10:00 and it ends at 17:00, after which the MSX Marathon will commence.

Great Big smile
just signed up Smile
not sure what I'll exactly be doing, but I'll figure that out when the time gets there ;p
The money goes to a good cause anyway ;p

btw, "after which the MSX Marathon will commence.", does that mean that the marathon has officially been approved? Or is this still uncertain, as is still shown on the website?

I think that marathon thing belonged to the 2006 news.. not the 2007 news. Tongue

Nothing is as permanent as the temporary. (Hebrew proverb)
Indeed I do not think we can expect people to ever get mature.

I was wondering what wolf_ was referring to in this case....

The 1:1 'stealing' of MRC text on posse with the intention -as usual- to be annoying. Childish. (the text btw, which I spent quite some time on as the original submitted newspost by grauw was as little as what you could've read on the mailinglist, which is not a problem btw, that's what we're here for) Evil

@Wolf,
Well, you can see who posted that newspost on MSXPosse. Did you expect something else?
Even if BiFiMSX thinks MRC screwed up, he would have had 2 options:

1. Stand above it
2. React childish

Untill now, he has constantly doing one of the above...

Can you please talk about the Bussum fair instead of opening and opening fights against other users? QuestionoOCrying

spl, I think often enough people try to just ignore such things, but I doubt that's always possible.

Question How can you know what the intention was? Maybe it was a hint about something or just plain laziness.

And even if the intention was indeed to be annoying, why let him succeed in getting you annoyed when we should really be encouraging people to register for the fair?

Don't worry, the intentions were perfectly clear. It's just that not everything happens in front of the camera.. Tongue

And, well, being annoyed is too much honor, but enough to reply with that pic.

wolf_: it's obvious that it's hard to come up with such lovely prose as yours! Don't you find it a little bit understandable? I think it's just a compliment (or should I say a tribute?) for MRC (and you in particular) Wink

Imitation can usually be interpreted as a big compliment! Smile

For me, this only makes me more anxious about how fun the fair will be, and all the long-lost people to meet.
I wish it would take place tomorrow!

(might well be 'cause the last fair I visited was the one with Nishi having his speech in, what, 2001, 2002?)

Well hm, these reactions aren’t really going in the direction I’d like them to Sad. Whether or not Passion MSX copies the odd news message on msx.org is not related, and discussion belongs elsewhere (e.g. the forum). Let’s stay on topic ppl, and anticipate the fair here.

@Repair-Bas: I know, but I can’t do much about that. I announce the fair a few months in advance, and I get complaints that it’s too late and agendas are already full. I announce it a year in advance, and it’s not good either. Smile

Anyway, the retro fair is on sunday (as I heard it), the MSX fair Bussum is on saturday, so it should technically not be a problem.

@Manuel: I updated the list.

@FiXato: Actually, I’m not sure yet. One of the reasons for announcing the fair early was so that we could get permission (which was the problem last year). But I will have to inform whether that permission was actually gotten (it should be). Unfortunately, the Uit-Wijk is currently closed for the summer vacation, so it’s a little hard to inquire and get confirmation, but I will try. For now you can assume that the MSX Marathon will last until sunday morning. Either way, nothing wrong with saying ‘the MSX Marathon will commence’, because either way there will be an MSX Marathon, it might just not last until sunday morning. ^_^

@Everyone: If you want to reserve a stand, please do so as soon as possible! Thanks Smile.

Anyway, I hope it will be another fun fair again! See you next month!
