Subject: MIST AtariFest VII in Indy JULY 13
Posted-By: xx004 (aa700 - Michael Current)

New date for MIST, the Mid-Indiana AtariFest for an 8th year, is July 13.

The town is full of racers and auto buffs, and there's hardly a sleeping 
room to be had later in the month ... so MIST is July 13.

Same place ... two ballrooms at the Best Western Waterfront Plaza Hotel
...  and room to spread out the merchandise as well as the crowd.  Last
year's event attracted nearly 350 ticket-buying Atarians (almost as many
as the year before, although it may not have looked that way since we were
not so crowded).  Charlie Sears is ready to take table reservations, and 
he might be enticed to get you a special spot if you call early and pay 
up early:   Call his home at 317.535-4829 or leave him mail on his 
Crossroad/MIST BBS at  317.535-1643 or  317.780.5473 (FidoNet 1:231/310.0 
and AtariNet 51:203/8).  

You can reply to me here at shuffman@ideanet.doe.state.in.us (and I do 
intended to get back on GEnie, assuming it continues to be the Atari 
Place to Be ... but I have been playing the WWWeb Games a lot lately).

Hotel rooms will be scarce even on July 13, the Best Western people tell 
us, but they agreed to give us a deal about $5 more than last year:
$55 Single or $61 Double ... but you MUST RESERVE the room JUNE 12 -- 
30 days in advance of the MIST Fest to get that rate (and probably to get 
a room at all).  To get the rate, DO NOT call Best Western's 800 number; 
you must call the Indianapolis hotel itself and make the reservation with 
the Conference Staff.  If you call at night or on a weekend, leave a 
message for them to call you back.  They do that.  The Indianapolis phone 
number is 317.299.8400 and the ConferenceStaff extension is x393.

It's not a bad place to stay, as you know, even if the restaurant leaves
something to be desired some years.  The indoor pool is nice and there are
several franchise restaurants nearby, as is the Indianapolis Motor
Speedway and the Indianapolis Raceway Park. 
 
What else?  We anticipate an incremental increase in our costs, but 
nothing dramatic.  We will get contracts in the mail real soon now.

E-mail me with any changes in address you suspect might delay mail in the 
Postal Service.  There are too few of us to let anyone get lost or strayed.
