==========================================================================
          The official Info Pack on the Amiga Convention '95
==========================================================================

[From its organizers...]
          
Please feel free to spread this file around wherver you can, as long as it
is not altered.  We don't want people to show up at the wrong city or
during the wrong month! 

WHY:  We are putting on the Amiga Convention '95 (AC 95) to support our
      favorite computer, the Amiga!  We feel that for too long, the Amiga
      has been ignored, and now that the Amiga is owned by people who
      actually will support it well, we want to help them out in any way we
      can.  We also want to get a lot of people together to have a really
      cool time! 

WHERE: A College Cafeteria in Montreal, large enough to hold over 1,000
       people, not including the surrounding rooms.
       
WHEN   : August 1995

ENTRANCE COST: 7 Canadian dollars

COST FOR RENTING TABLES : $100 - 1 day,  $150 - 2 days, for one table of 
                          6' by 3' and chairs.  
                          
ACCESABILITY:  The show is easily accesable by bus and train, as well as
               having lots of parking space in the vicinity for cars.
