From: Bill Kendrick

Atari Party 2013 is one month away! I hope to see you at the public library here in Davis, on Saturday July 6th! Many of us will be there setting things up at 10am, when the library opens. The event officially starts at 12 noon.


If you're coming from out of town, and looking for a hotel or motel, here are a few links that you might find useful:

* Google Maps search for "hotel" near Davis
(note: check-in set for July 6th, the day of the event; change as needed)


* "Hotels" pages on the DavisWiki and WoodlandWiki:


(Sadly, the West Sac. and Dixon Wikis don't have anything on their
"Hotels" pages; but they're wikis, so you can help fix that! ;) )

Want to help?

We're still in need of TVs (I need at least 3 more than I have, to set up all of the systems I'd like to bring), and volunteers to help 'usher' (hand out raffle tickets when people arrive, and help attendees -- or at least point them to someone else who can help).

I'm also considering buying a pair of game consoles (Atari 2600 & 7800, plus games & controllers) from a local comic book store to give away as prizes. They're asking $50, but I'll also need to buy some power supplies, since they have none.

However, I have $0 budget this year, since so far all donations have been give-away items. While this obviously isn't a deal-breaker, it's always cool to have actual Ataris to give away as prizes, so I thought I'd mention it, just in case anyone out here felt particularly charitable. :)

I won a very nice Atari 800 with a boatload of accessories in the raffle at this event in 2011!

Man I wish I could go to this. I recently acquired a couple mega ST's I would like to showcase and get info on as I'm relatively new to ST's. Do you know of any groups or shows near St Louis of in the Midwest?
