Top Ten Reasons to Attend AmiWest 2013 - # 10

Those of us close to AmiWest are always excited about what will happen at
the show.  Of course, we're involved in planning it, contacting potential
vendors, exhibitors, presenters, and speakers, and the rest of the details
involved in presenting AmiWest to the Amiga community.

But why should you come to join us?  We believe there are compelling
reasons to be here in person at AmiWest 2013.  Here's  a countdown of our most compelling reasons to attend, from #10 down to #1. 


The reason AmiWest was first organized was to provide a once yearly "store"
for  Amiga  users  in  Northern  California  after our two Sacramento Amiga
stores  had  closed.   That  first  year  was  dedicated to Commodore Amiga
machines  (including Escom and Amiga Technologies), since that was all that
was  then  available.   That support has been present every year since then
for the past 15 years.

In  fact, the support for what are now Classic Amiga machines is so much of
a  given  that  we've  recently  heard  sighs of nostalgia over the lack of
support  for  the  classic  platform.   The  following exhibitors and events
continue to offer support for the classic platform:

1)  Sacramento  Amiga  Computer  Club has a large exhibit every year
with  Amiga  classic hardware and software for sale.  Our 1,000 square foot
"warehouse"  is  still  full  of  hardware  and  software  for your classic
machine.  And we will have a lot of it available at AmiWest 2013.

2)  Amigakit  also  brings  many  items  that extend and enhance the
classic  platform for classic users.  Among these many items are the latest
from  Individual  Computers  in Germany, as well as other European hardware
and  software houses.  They will also likely bring many classic Amiga items
to AmiWest 2013 for your purchase.

3)  The  Classic  Clinic on Friday evening, October 18, 2013 is also
aimed  at  repairing and upgrading classic Amiga machines that you bring to
the  show.   We  have  technicians  who  volunteer  their  time  to replace
capicitors  that  are  dying  on  the  motherboard,  help  install upgraded
hardware, and otherwise troubleshoot and repair classic machines.

So don't despair; help is at AmiWest 2013 for classic Amiga users!  But it
won't help YOU at all unless you plan to be there.

So  be  sure  to  watch  this  blog for the latest in AmiWest 2013 news and
details.   Every  year  gets better - but it won't be better for YOU unless
you  attend.   Reserve  October  16-20, 2013 on your calendar and make your
plans  to  attend the Second Programming Conference (16-18) and the AmiWest
2013  show  (18 PM - 20), the Amiverse show on the West coast of the USA at
the   Holiday   Inn   Express,  2224  Auburn  Blvd.,  Sacramento,  CA  Tel:
