Events   Events : Photos, Videos and Future Plans of Finnish Amiga Users Group's Saku Event
   posted by jPV on 7-Oct-2012 10:26:03 (1891 reads)
Here are photos and videos of the Saku 2012 event which was held on September 29th in Oulu, the northern Amiga capital of Finland. The event was a success with around 70 visitors, which was achieved with proper advertisement and also promotion in other public events.

For example, we were asked to arrange some retro gaming at Oulu Arts' Night earlier this year and we got around 200 interested nostalgia gamers there. Amiga is not forgotten! Maybe we just should participate in more mainstream events to get people interested in our specific events as well.

Read more...


Saku 2012 featured thirteen Amiga compatible and three Commodore 64 computers, four video projectors, several sales tables, game and programming competitions with prizes, demo and video shows and a very enthusiastic athmosphere.

Next year we aim higher with the Saku 2013 event. It will be held in southern Finland where the potential of reaching the masses is a lot higher. It will also be our 20th anniversary event. Be ready for it!

It looks busy - plenty of machines and people! When I read the announcement I wish I was still in Oulu, now that I see the pictures, the bitter taste is even worse...
But I'm glad to see so much activity, and I've been really happy to see one of my dear friends grab the Super Skipmarks first prize
Congratulations!

Thanks and cool to hear you've had similar meetings :) Any pics of your event? Or any ideas to share what we could bring our events too (good games especially for multiplayer, different activities...)? :)

Nice pictures. You can find some of our Belgian AMiga Club pictures on our facebook page (just look for "the Belgian Amiga Club" if you are on facebook)

Ideas ... I talked to WEPL, creator of the WHDload software and as a result we got his permission to sell keyfiles to our visitors with a nice price reduction. The gaming people among us were very pleased ! Also some other guy presented an FPGA arcade board / replay board on the bigscreen

You've got nice amount of people too :)

That WHDLoad sale is a good idea. I already know some people who would have bought keyfile for sure :). Have to think that for the next year.

We've had similar group orders ages ago, for example with VaporWare keyfiles, but then it's mostly been forgotten for years... except the BOH sale couple of years ago ;)
