Finnish Amiga Users Group's Saku 98 Event Was A Huge Success


Petro Tyschtschenko Unveiled The New Amiga Hymn In Finland

ESPOO, FINLAND - March 29, 1998 - Saku 98, organized by the Finnish Amiga Users Group on March 28th in Vantaa, was the biggest Amiga only event in Finland in years. Estimated total of 500 people visited the exhibition during the day and almost 250 were listening Petro Tyschtschenko's speech.

Amiga International's Petro Tyschtschenko launched his new Amiga hymn at Saku 98. There were five different versions of this promotional song, ranging from classical to pop. The techno version, which Mr. Tyschtschenko played after his speech, featured the lyrics "Back for the future" and "Amiga". Another highlight of Mr. Tyschtschenko's speech was the promise of cheaper A1200 computers for the members of the Finnish Amiga Users Group.

The exhibition was attended by the leading Finnish Amiga retailers Amigator, Broadline Oy, Gentle Eye Ky and Tsunami Trading, and the hardware manufacturer Petsoff Limited Partnership (of Delfina fame). New products, such as the Phase 5 Blizzard PPC, were on display and a lot of Amiga software and hardware was being sold. Mr. Tyschtschenko was present the whole day and handed out Amiga stickers and lighters.
