1975 Olympic Sales catalog

What a cool find, thanks for sharing Gene. Novus and Rockwell have nearly as many pages as HP and TI.

Missed you in Reno, looking forward to 2015 in Nashville (hint).

Anyone recall if Olympic had an office near Ontario, Ca in the early '80s? I got a lot of 41 stuff from a store just a few miles from the airport, and it was a branch from a larger company, but can't recall the name for sure.

and here is the previously available catalog from the year afterward, 1976-1977. This was made available a couple of years ago.

I purchased my HP-67 at Olympic Sales for $382.50 (vs $450 MSRP at the time). Remember their monthly ads in Scientific American back then?

Done, they're here OCR'ed too. It's interesting to see how fast prices dropped on many of the non_HP calculators, comparing the 75-76 catalog to the 76-77 one.

Thanks!!!

I heard that New Jersey was a possible site too. Bob, I would think that your hint would be for your neighboring state.

You have uncommonly good sources Katie!

I can see New Jersey any time... And Nashville has better BBQ!

Seriously, if there is interest in having HHC15 in NJ I will be glad to do all the local research and liason. I suggested it as an alternate East Coast location (to all those left-coast folks, Nashville is the East Coast) since there have been so many HHC's on the West Coast in the past few years. We want the East Coast folks coming as well. Like you!
