North Carolina Atari and Classic Game Convention 2002 Show Dates Announced
RALEIGH, NC (August 30, 2002) – The organizers of the North Carolina Atari and Classic Game Convention have announced the dates of the 2002 show, which will be held at Bickett Gallery (www.bickettgallery.com
) in Raleigh, North Carolina. On Friday, September 27, and Saturday, September 28, gamers of all ages will come together for a weekend of buying, trading, playing, and discussing their favorite games.
This year’s show celebrates several significant anniversaries in the video game industry, including the twenty-year anniversary of the release of the ColecoVision video game system, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the release of the Atari 2600 video game system, and the thirty-year anniversary of the founding of Atari.
The convention will play host to a number of classic video game vendors and exhibitors who will be selling hardware and software from the early days of the video game industry. “Remember how you felt early Christmas morning when you opened your Atari 2600 and fired up Combat and Asteroids for the first time? The convention is an incredible opportunity to return to those memorable days when Atari, Mattel, Milton Bradley, and Coleco were synonymous with gaming,” said Kirk Adam, co-promoter of the North Carolina Atari and Classic Game Convention.
Other highlights of the convention include a variety of classic video game systems setup for unlimited play, live music, special guests, door prizes, tournaments, and trading. For complete details please check out the convention’s website at http://www.ncacgc.com
