Silly Venture 2020 - uniting all ATARI scenes since 2000!

Post by grey/msb »

Image

My Dears, it's been 20 Y E A R S ! Exactly two decades ago, on April 21st of 2000, the first "Silly Venture" took place in Gdansk/POLAND. It was to be a one-time "Venture", to maintain the tradition of Easter events and fill the gap left by those not taking place that year - "Error in Line" party in Germany, and it became... almost cyclical. For this occasion our friend wiecz0r prepared another installment of the event page and composed a new moody soundtrack "for the background".

However, this year's event is not only the 20th anniversary of SV, but also the 35th birthday of the Atari ST computer! You can learn more about these topics in places like the "WASSUP?" section, at the familiar address of:

www.sillyventure.eu

Enjoy!

Nice. Any idea of the exact birthday date for the ST? I've been going by the burn in rom date of the earliest disk based TOS I can find. Would be good to get the confirmed date.

That lynx cake had me fooled in the first photo, just thought, hmm that looks bigger than I remember... It needed all the paint peeled off on the handles though... :lol:

Guys, we still have a lot of "extra" t-shirts after the last SV edition in 2019. Unfortunately, due to the tight schedule of the event, I was not able to deal with their sale during SV (as I initially planned), and when I rested and wanted to deal with this topic - COVID-19 appeared. Needless to say, the shipping of some awards has also been suspended ... (there was also a problem with the return of shipments, including the ones from Australia). The profit from the sale of these T-shirts will be used to ship the remaining prizes. As a reminder - in 2019 we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Atari Lynx console, hence the shirts include hand-made greetings to event participants from RJ Mical - the creator of this fantastic handheld (in addition, the ATARI logo is printed on the sleeve).

Image

For the same reason, the 2020 calendar is also about this console. Due to the fact that we have the month of May, people willing to buy a T-shirt will receive a calendar FOR FREE !!!

Image

Please send orders to: info@retroventure.eu (yes, RETRO Venture, not Silly), entering in the subject of the e-mail: "T-shirt SV2k19". When ordering t-shirts, please provide its SIZE, quantity. Availability will be checked at a given moment - if the T-shirt is in stock - I will reply by providing the PayPal account for payment and asking for the shipping address.

SV2k19 T-Shirt - 15 euro + 10 euro shipping

At the moment (05.05.2020) the following sizes and quantities of T-shirts are available:

M - 1 pc.
L- 16 pcs. (-3) = 13 pcs.
XL - 8 pcs. (-1) = 7 pcs.
XXL - 7 pcs.
4XL - 1 pc.

I will add some small surprises in the parcels yet :)

At the request of some people, I added size 5XL (available colours: black, grey and navy blue). There is no grey colour in the survey, but it is similar to graphite - I ask interested persons to select this option.

That logo is awesome! Have to have it on a t-shirt! :-)
I placed an order of 2 t-shirts. Is any kind of order confirmation sent out to the registered e-mail? If it is, I didn't receive one.

Do you still have any SV 2019 shirts left over? Would like to place an order for one Medium if you have the one left, and will order an Orange 2020 in M regardless, but just wanted to check first so I could possibly combine shipping, or is that a separate thing? (Probably is, because I didn't realise these haven't been printed yet), but even so if you have that 1 medium left over, I'd have it.

edit: Put my order in for 2020 shirt, orange/M It's under Alistair and awspazzard for email, and emailed retro about the 2019... Sorry I didn't read all of your message properly first time...

No worries, shame as I loved the 2019 one too. Anyway, replied to your email friend... Keep me posted, also I didn't get payment details from you or are you doing this once you hit 100?

At the 23rd edition of the Evoke 2020 party in Germany (which takes place on-line under the name "Novoque 2020"), an intro in the "Alternative Platform" category was presented, which is also an invitation to Silly Venture 2020 :) What specific platform is it?

I would like to inform you that the plans for "Silly Venture" remain unchanged. Most of the countries from which SV participants come are allowed to visit Poland (unfortunately the exceptions at the moment are: USA, Argentina & Spain). I will keep you informed about any changes.

Stay safe, STay Atari!

I fear many of us are not that much concerned about the official government rules but more about safety in general. Even if it breaks my heart, unless something changes in December (a vaccine, massive drop of the cases etc) I will stay at home :-(

For example, our "international" office party in Prague (about 150 people), held in December too, is for 99% not going to happen for the same reasons. :-(
