===========================
CHANGES FOR AMIWEST 2005
===========================

AmiWest 2005 has morphed into the AmiWest 2005 Amiga 20th Birthday Party, one day only at the Clarion Hotel Cal-Expo, July 23rd, 2005. Our (very) conservative financial manager has informed us that our current financial standing will only allow us a one-day event.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT ANY LESS WILL HAPPEN! It just means that we will be packing that one day with more than ever before, including a **SURPRISE** banquet speaker! You won't want to miss him. More on that later.

A ONE-DAY EVENT ALSO MEANS LOWER PRICES! Lower prices on admission tickets (see below) means that more of our great community can come at a reduced rate! Our hotel room prices REMAIN THE SAME AS LAST YEAR, including a full hot breakfast for up to two people per room. SO AMIWEST, YOUR BEST AMIGA SHOW DEAL, IS EVEN BETTER NOW!

Don't wait! Ticket sales are already increasing! The fire department will only permit us to admit so many people. And you'll want to be one of them!

MISTER ZOIL ENTERPRISES TO BE AT AMIWEST 2005!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're sure that many of you will remember the great Amiga disk copier, Project D. We welcome back Mister Zoil Enterprises will again be exhibiting the work of Ben Fuller, the author of Project D and other great Amiga software.

We've asked Glenn Fuller, Ben's father and the exhibitor for Mister Zoil Enterprises, to explain a little bit about Mister Zoil and the special meaning this exhibit has. Here is what he had to say:

"Mister Zoil Enterprises was founded by Benjamin G. Fuller in 1997. It was a name given by a friend and embraced by Ben. Ben's career with computers began with the 6502 chip Commodore Vic-20 then PET. His last product is unknown but one of his last very popular ones was ReplayTV. He was one of the first developers at 16 years old for the Amiga. The former name of Ben's company was Fuller Computer Systems, Inc. out of Gilbert, Arizona.

Ben's father will have a booth showing Project D on an Amiga 2000 with what is probably the last version which Ben had released. . . Ben helped found AAUG (Arizona Amiga User's Group)in 1986.

We welcome friends and curious to stop and visit. Rumor has it that perhaps a few "Boing" ball posters will be on display along with some of Ben's original art work, Photography, and a few memoriable items. Ben retired in June, 2001 and continued with an avocation, photography.

BIOGRAPHY

The major sequence of Ben's life of late follows: Ben left for California in 1988 to join Silent Software and contribute to the "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" computer game distributed by Buena Vista Software, Disney. He returned to Arizona in 1992 to join Softwood, Inc. [developing] another Amiga product, Final Copy II. [In] late 1993 he accepted another position in California and remained. [The] first [product] from this last move was SunRize Industries Studio 16 v3.0. Early [in] 1995 he moved to Iband, Inc., which was purchased by Macromedia. He utilized among other disciplines HTML for Backstage and Dreamweaver web site design products. July 1998-July 2001 Ben was with ReplayTV. Ben lived in Campbell, California from 1993 to June 2001 when he moved to Redwood City, mid-Bay area, to retire. He had just concluded interviewing for consulting work with Moxi/Digeo when the events occurred that ended his life.

As a foot note, Ben has "Amiga Forever" software on his Dell Tower, his user account symbol a NASA Astronaut in a space walk. Along with and shoulder to shoulder with his love of computers were his passions for science fiction: Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who et al. NASA and space travel was a high interest also. Space Access 2001 in Scottsdale, Arizona was the last conference he attended and photos are on his web site, www.zoil.com."

We encourage all of you to come by the Mister Zoil booth to check out what promises to be a unique and interesting exhibit. Again, this exhibit is another demonstration of the solidarity of the Amiga community.
