The ALT - WOA Show, described as the North of England's Second Great Amiga Show, will be taking place on the 23rd of February at the Old Cornmill on the outskirts of Huddersfield. This year's show has expanded substantially and is expected to be the first great Amiga show to take place in 2002.
The organisers, Huddersfield Amiga User Group have taken over three floors at The Old Cornmill due to the success of alt.woa 2001. There will be a number of special Areas located in the building such as the Games Area, in which gamers will be able to play the traditional Sensible Soccer competition but also try out demos of both new and newly ported games. The Amiga Arena is a new attraction for 2002, Amiga Inc and partners will be demonstrating their hardware and software at a special location at the show. Fleecy Moss of Amiga Inc has indicated that a few people have been asked to arrange a demo on the Amiga stand - Mattew Kille of Zeoneo, and Ron van Herk from Computer City are two that have agreed. Amiga users should be able to get a closer look at the Sharp Zaurus.
Courtesy of Neil Bothwick and Wirenet, the Cyber Cafe has also been expanded for 2002 to Incorporate IRC providing the facility for Amiga Inc to hold live sessions throughout the day. There will also be a number of workshops, Don Cox will present the Audio workshop, Neil Bothwick will present the networking workshop and Bill Hoggett will demonstrate the latest version of Amithlon. Fleecy Moss, (Amiga) and Alan Redhouse, (Eyetech) have also been persuaded to give a presentation and end with a Question & Answer Session.
Tickets for Alt.WoA can now be bought on-line at the price of £3. If you live in the UK, then this is a show well worth attending.
