Come join us for a celebration of the Amiga, its groundbreaking accomplishments and its rich history at the Computer History Museum - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/890300835/amiga-30th-anniversary-in...

On July 23rd, 1985, the world was introduced to the Commodore Amiga Computer. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Amiga's launch and to commemorate that seminal event in computer history we are throwing a party.

Join us on Saturday, July 25th, in a celebration of the amazing Amiga. Our party will feature an evening of epic Amiga Fun. The event will be a banquet with feature speakers, panel discussion, historical artifact displays, and more.

The main event for the banquet will be a panel discussion of original Amiga developers including:

Dale Luck
Carl Sassenrath
Dave Needle
RJ Mical
Plus more

The panel topics will cover start-up life in 1985, building the Amiga 1000, and how the Amiga influenced technology over the last 30 years.

Additional speakers will include:

* Trevor Dickinson, co-founder of A-EON Technology, makers of next generation Amiga systems and software.

* Colin Proudfoot, Former Managing Director of Commodore Business Machines (UK)

* Mike Battilana, Founder CEO of Cloanto, maker of the Amiga Forever emulation software.

We will also have video presentations including a special extended clip from the upcoming "Viva Amiga" documentary video [produced] by "Viva Amiga" producer Zack Weddington.

News from Tekmage in the latest Kickstarter update -- "The big news I’m happy to share is that we will have a two day exhibit hall. You will recall that the kickstarter had a stretch goal to to expand the banquet to include a two day hall. We missed that goal during the kickstarter but a sponsor stepped up so we can expand the event."

(snip)

"We are also going to be releasing more tickets for sale. These tickets will come in the form of a $100 for the banquet, $40 for two days of exhibit hall, $20 for one day, and $60 for a family pass."

Truly,
