The annual MSX fair in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, is being held on October the 16th. Registration for this fair has now been opened.

Earlier we reported about the Nijmegen Fair being postponed. While the usual moment for this event is in the first quarter of the year, it has been postponed to the last quarter of the same year due to Covid-19. It looks like it is going live after all, hurray! The 2021 edition of this fair is to be held on October 16.

The registration for the MSX Fair Nijmegen 2021 has been opened. Register your booths on the fair's dedicated website.

It's not likely that I will be coming in October unless Germany revokes the PCR test requirement on entering the country. How would I be able to do a test after the fair? Besider, here those tests cost from 80 to 200 Euro depending on the urgency. Not sure how much that would be in NL.

Too many issues, for ME, to travel outside of the UK at the moment, however, we are looking at doing an MSX event at the RCM here in Leicester.

Is this a kid-friendly event? My 8 year old son is really into MSX gaming lately and he'd like to come.

It is a very kid-friendly event. There is only an overload of MSX hardware and software! And of course a lot of MSX enthousiasts Big smile There is also a nice ice-cream store in just a 5 minute walk away.

Please see the latest news message on the website


I talked to the patron again and he explicitly requested us to help with the Corona QR code checking. If they have to do all the checking/scanning the whole day, there will be delays at the bar and it's quite a burden for them. To help them we came up with the idea to introduce a stamp: if your valid QR code was scanned, you get a stamp and you don't have to be scanned the rest of the day anymore. You can help us by letting your QR code be scanned by Manuel or Raymond to get the stamp up front. Of course, you can also still get it at the bar if you can't find us quickly.

This way, we hope we can play our part in complying with the government rules on the corona virus. Your cooperation is highly appreciated! And of course, if you don't want a stamp, that's also fine. After all, the valid QR code is only necessary for ordering something at the bar.
