One of the main goals of last year's Extravaganza was to bring user groups in the region together. We were successful! Members from the Central Texas Amiga Computing Society (CTACS) in Austin (http://www.main.org/ctacs/), the Tulsa Amiga Group (TAG), and the X-otic Computer Systems of San Antonio (XCSSA) were present. Amiga enthusiasts from Houston, College Station and other Texas and Oklahoma locales were also in attendance. This year we are putting on our thirteenth annual computer Amiga show with the help and support of CTACS. So come and join us and show your support for the Amiga.
