The 2014 dream-like adventure continues with the AC!
The fun retro-computing and retro-coding convention will dress up this year with Alice in wonderland’s theme. So don’t be startled if you encounter one or two caterpillars smoking (like some old Thomsons screens). Or a few lunny cats, Amiga style. And be aware of the Atari cakes, as they might shrink you or make you grow bigger.
Join us in this easy going gathering. Discover or chalenge, or both, in this crazy atmosphere.
This 9th edition convention will take place the 5th and 6th of april 2014 at the Salle des Fetes de Congis sur Thérouane (77440) from saturday at 10am to sunday 6pm.
You will be able to come across all these brands : Atari, Amstrad, Amiga, MSX or even Comodores etc… who have allowed you to go on the other side of the mirror.

The RGC website (in construction): http://www.retro-gc.orgAbout the AC
Originally known as the Jaguar Connexion and launched in 2002, the convention was initially just a gathering of a handful of Atari enthusiasts. Five editions later, it became the AC, to include all machines - consoles and computers - of the wide-known brand. Users, collectors, and other interested people now gathered during a yearly event. In the following years, the AC has been including other brands (Commodore/ Amiga, Amstrad, Thomson, MSX, Sinclair, Oric, etc) to offer the attendants an always unique experience.
About the Retro-gaming Connexion association
Founded in 2004 by six retrogaming enthusiasts with diverse abilities and origins (consultant, multimedia teacher, pool technician), this non-profit organization's goal has always been to promote human gatherings. The successful conventions of the past years have turned the RGC organization into a well-known retrogaming partner in France. Today, with its strong membership of 11 persons, the organization has acquired a wide range of competencies, ranging from holding conventions (AC and RGC) to offering weekly computer training sessions, from packaging design to videogames production.
