Those that plan to attend the Saturday night banquet at 7 pm, the club needs your $29.00 check made out to "Amiwest" by Oct 3rd for a count.

Send it to the following address,

Chuck Washburn
7051 Dolan Way
Citrus Heights, CA 95621

Best to send it by Sept. 25th to make sure it gets there in time.
No banquet ticket will be sent, you'll pick up your ticket at the show.

The AmiWest Blog explains it about as well as I can at the moment. I am still hoping to get more suggestions for which games to use on each of the five different computer platforms that are being used in the competition, as described in my statement on the AmiWest Blog, so if you have any suggestions, please post them, or send me an email, or PMail with the names of the games.

I am hoping for more people that are coming to the show to email me and let me know they are planning on participating in the competition. It will be a bit strange if I end up having more prizes than contestants to give them to.

See you all at the AmiWest 2009 Show!

@thread,

For the lazy people that don't want to look elsewhere:

The Amiga Game Competition will consist of 5 different Amiga games to
be played on 5 different types of Amiga computers. The planning is not
set in stone yet, but it looks like I will have one game running on a
Classic Amiga (probably an A600 w/2mb RAM), another game running on a
SAM440ep w/AmigaOS4.1, another game running on an Efika w/MorphOS2.3,
another game running on either a MiniMig v1.1, or on a C-One computer
running a MiniMig core via it’s add-on FPGA board, and the fifth game
running on a PC using emulation such as AmigaForever, or AmiKit/WinUAE.

I am accepting suggestions for which games should be used on the above
listed hardware, but each of the games chosen must have a numerical
score given as the result of playing the game, as all scores for each
of the 5 games will be totaled to determine the winners. Prizes will
be awarded to at least the top three scorers in the competition, as
well as one prize raffled to a random person just for participating in
the contest.

The entry fee to participate is $2 and pre-registering to participate
is encouraged, so we will have some idea of how many contestants we
might have and therefore can estimate the time needed to complete, but
no money will be accepted before the AmiWest 2009 show begins. The
registration fees collected will be used solely to offset the cost of
obtaining the prizes, and if there is any excess money, it will be
given back to the first place finisher in the contest as well as the
first place prize.

That is it in a nutshell. I know there are many SAM owners here on AW.net, so please give me some suggestions on which games run well on the SAM and have a numerical result. I want a game that will show off the SAM to those contestants that are participating in the competition, as well as the spectators that just want to watch.

Copying this post from amigadave in another thread, since I see no one else has posted about this yet:

From thread:
Quote:
MorphOS-2.4 on G4 MacMini to be shown at AmiWest 2009


Quote:
I am out of time to write more, but the title of the thread says it all. Well, not all, there is so much more at the AmiWest 2009 show and if the rumor mill is correct, the AmigaOS4.x crowd should try to get there for a surprise.
Hope to see many of you at the show. Please introduce yourselves and tell me your nick here so I can put faces to the many names here.
See you this weekend!


Edit: Bah. Forgot to include thread title Dave's post was from, without which the post made little sense. heh.

I wish I had some real juicy surprise to reveal, but I am only referring to what has already been written on the AmiWest 2009 Blog.

@HammerD,

It would not be a surprise if he told you, would it. Everyone will just have to come to the show to find out.
