After the phenomenal success of their previous sale, the Kickstart User Group, based in Ottershaw, Surrey have announced the date for their second Kickstart Amiga Show.
The Place: Brook Hall, Brox Road, Ottershaw in Surrey The Date: Saturday February 27th 1999 The Time: 1pm-5pm Admission fee: £1
Amiga International are officially supporting this year's show, and Petro Tyschtschenko has kindly donated a complete A1200 Magic Pack along with an assortment of Amiga goodies (stickers, badges, mice, mouse mats etc.) all of which will be given away to show goers throughout the day.
The show will consist of a sale of Amiga hardware and software, games competitions throughout the day, demonstrations of Amiga applications and new hardware and the opportunity to join the Kickstart User Group. In all it's a great day out where you can have fun, get help with your Amiga problems and meet other Amiga users.
What's on at the show:
The second Kickstart Show will be bursting with even more Amiga activities than last year, showing both Amiga owners and their friends exactly what Amiga can REALLY do:
Stands: 18 stands selling new and second-user Amiga software and hardware. Refreshments will also be on sale and a Kickstart membership stand will also be on hand to answer questions and handle membership enquiries from show-goers.
Competitions: Amiga International are supporting the show by offering a complete A1200 Magic Pack (worth #200) for the grand draw, which each show-goer is automatically entered into. There will also be various Amiga give-aways throughout the day and great prizes for the various gaming contests planned.
Games: Three gaming competitions are planned: A multiplayer Doom tournament (with as many as five simultaneous players in each game), A Sensible Soccer tournament and a Skidmarks contest (with as many as eight simultaneous players in each game).
Demonstrations: Kickstart members will be on hand to demonstrate various applications, such as Mac emulation under Fusion, PC Emulation under PCX and Amiga emulation using Amiga Forever. Also on show will be new hardware innovations, such as the AteoBus busboard and Pixel64 graphics card and various A1200 & A600 tower conversions.
Magazine launch: Being unveiled at the Kickstart Show will be the first issue of the new monthly Kickstart magazine Amiga Insight. This magazine, produced totally by club members on Amiga hardware, will have a monthly mix of news, product reviews, tutorials and informed debate about the latest Amiga topics - indeed everything from the fate of OS3.5 to why 880K floppy disks should be killed off!
