Events   Events : Photos and Videos from Saku 2013
   posted by jPV on 3-Oct-2013 18:15:32 (2577 reads)
The largest Amiga event held in Finland in over 10 years was a success with more than 200 visitors in attendance. You will find photos and videos on the Saku 2013 EventPpage.

Saku 2013 presented a great variety of both new and old Amiga and Commodore related machines. For example, here is a partial list of just some of the machines shown: several A600 and A1200 computers, A4000T, CDTV, CD32/SX-1/FMV, DraCo Vision, AmigaOne X1000, SAM440ep, Power Mac G5, PowerBook G4, Mac mini G4, AROS PC, Raspberry Pi with AROS, Turbo Chameleon with Amiga core, Minimig, several C64 systems, SX-64, C128D with audio equipment, VC-20, Plus/4, PET 2001 and KIM-1.... (Please click 'Read more')


The Deathbed Vigil, MindCandy 2 and a video report of the Saku '98 event were shown on a big screen in the auditorium. Finnish Amiga retailer Gentle Eye had lots of stuff for sale, the Finnish Amiga Users Group was selling mouse-mats, t-shirts and stickers with its new "AMIGAAA!" logo and Skrolli magazine had its own stand. There was also a multi-player competition on Stunt Car Racer. The best players were awarded with comic books about the gaming industry, Chris Huelsbeck's Turrican Anthology downloads, Allister Brimble's Amiga Works CD+USB, new Skrolli magazines, signed posters from A-EON and other fun loot!

And nobody took pictures of my tie. At least it's shown in one of the videos.

I'm pretty sure these kinds of events would work on other countries too. There's surprisingly much interest underneath, from nostalgists as well as from new retro people, even if amount of the active people would seem low (which is usually bigger than looks too). You just need small number of core people to kick things started... and then you'll see how other people get excited and offer to bring all kinds of stuff :) There certainly seems to be demand for these kinds of events, which offer vintage computing and gaming, but also present new things.

Saku as an user group has also managed to stay popular last years because of active native forum, but also because of its meetings and events. We've actually arranged and participated to more events than ever before in last years. Statutory annual meeting has kept the ball rolling and we've refined our classic gaming concept year by year in those meetings. In last few years we've also been asked to arrange Amiga gaming to several public mainstream events like lan parties (last time we even had compo arranged on bigscreen in main hall), national games day events, arts night events and even to some more private events. Retro/vintage gaming is getting more and more popular and we have something to offer, it's good to keep Amiga memories alive and also have an opportunity to show some new more marginal things too :)

Next year we're probably going to Tampere with biggish Saku event and keep our recent big city big Amiga event tour going :) Few other events can't be avoided either ;)

Check the first photo report, if you are referring to the tie here:

Not a perfect picture of the tie, but still showing. :)

Great post jPV. This is exactly what is keeping Saku young and fresh and on-going. Thank you to all the people who have made it happen.

I heartily recommend our concept to other countries as well. By combining retro, nostalgia, wider community (Saku these days includes other Commodore platforms like 8-bit and has always included all Amiga related "clone" platforms as well), demoscene, electronics/gadgets/programming hobbyists/geeks, newschool developments around these things etc., you can really bring something to the table that attracts a lof of people without looking or feeling like a museum. Old and new people doing new things with both old and new technology, but also showcasing past greats to those wishing to reminisce or learn old things anew. Plus some great retro entertainment.

Great stuff! Go Saku! :)

@jtsiren
It looks like I forgot or missed that one. The computer case has a nice reflection of the surroundings as well.
