We all had a great time at the event, and it was successful in all aspects. Thanks to all who participated or helped us to make it better!

Here are two photo galleries from it:

Plenty of classic systems and basically all the major Amiga-likes and FPGA's. An X5000 was available for testing. As well as a Vampire 500 slotted into an A2000, brought in by the same guy. What a nice person.

Wanna organize next year's event to another location? It would be 25th year of Saku (not the beer) next year and we would like to see an event somewhere in southern Finland, but that would require some volunteers...

Anyway, here's one video from Saturday:

My Finnish is pretty damn bad (well nearly non existent) so i'm not sure how well i could actually help with organizing. But there's enough old Amiga sceners down here in hki area so finding people shouldn't perhaps be too bad.
