So it finally happend ! And there's no turning back... "THE SHOW MUST GO ON !" like in Queen's song. After a few days of brainstorming, comparing arguments for "yes" and "no", I have the pleasure of inviting You for the 4th time to an international Atari party - Silly Venture 2k11 in Poland !

The last edition was met with a multitude of Polish and foreign guests and sceners. It proves that with a vision of the party and consistent realisation it's possible to achieve things, which seemed to be unattainable before (e.g. to gather such a big amount of Atari sceners in winter time). During the 10th-12th of December 2010, 62 visitors came from Poland, France, Germany, Holland and Czech. Over 40 compo entries were submitted for almost all atari platforms - starting with the 2600, through XL/XE, to ST and Falcon. Official partners were ABBUC (the bigest european club of 8-bit Atari users), ESKA radio-station and POMORSKA TV. How could I not do this promising party project again ? I asked myself many times... The final decission was made thanks to YOU. I am grateful for every positive word on the net or sent by e-mail, it just strengthens my conviction, it's WORTH IT - in spite of the logistic toil involved in it all.

Another edition of SV brings a new date and a new party-place. SV2k11 will take place from the 10th to 13th of Novemeber 2011 (Thursday-Sunday), over 4 days. The party-place will probably be a local club called "Mechanik" (11 km from the airport).

I will be starting the arrangements for the next edition of SV from the moment of this announcement! I do believe we can beat the last record for the amount of visitors and compo entries. After the last edition of SV the hopes were ressurected, many people declared "back to the roots" - the mood direct from the 90s came back, when the Atari scene was in full swing. Let's not waste it ! Sv2k11 is dedicated to all Atari fans - from Atari 2600 up to the Jaguar, right thrugh to the newest Falcon clones.

F*ck the mainstream & respect the roots ! There's *nothing* to regret.

With atari greetings,

Yours truly madly deeply,
