in english please, because French can discuss this everywhere at french forums and it is better to have our friends from rest of the world to know about this.
new edition of the Alchimie Démo-Partie is soon to happen.
10-11-12 November 2017
Tain l'Hermitage 26600 France
> 80km south of Lyon
>15 km north of Valence
a TGV train-station is 5km far only
This Demo party exists since quite some time now.
I use to attend it since 2009-2011 because I live very very close to there.
It is actually one of the biggest "oldschool-computers friendly" demo party in France.
Organized by an association specialized in Amiga : Triple A
Many Amiga users are also old Amstrad users.
During last editions I managed to enroll other amstradists to attend the party and it is to become the Main Amstrad Friendly South-East France event.
The event is mostly Francophone : no real effort to have info or booking facilities for English speaking or rest of the world.
But of course you will find people speaking english.
They don't want to become too big as this would imply a bigger organization and many extra work if all the east/north europe sceners would come too.
Still if some of you European Amstrad fellows want to come, you may be welcomed.
Currently more than 120 peoples have booked for the event, peoples from France but Also Belgium and Swiss-tzerland.
This year may set a new record for Amstradists "sceners" participation.
current non exhaustive list of peoples seen at Amstrad Forums :
Overflow / Logon System
Ast / iMPact
roudoudou / Flower Corp.
MacDeath / Fumiste
Khomenor / G2L2 Corp
PulkoMandy / Shinra
Barjack / Apollo Team
VISA / Deckard / StudyingSoul / Amiga
Zik / Futurs'
and perhaps a few others.
You will see many amigas, Atari, Amstrad, Macs and PCs.
there may be some 3D printer demos, some Robotic demos and Arcades and consoles to play with.
The Event already have quite a long history, that's even quite impressive that such event is still in existence after all those years.
the event alternates between main and µ (micro) event.
Each odd years you have the main Achimie with around 200 attendees and scene competition.
Each even-years you have the µAlchimie which is a smaller event with no scene competition and around 70 attendees.
Each year I post about the event in all the forums, this year is no exception.
the µAlchimie 2010 :
Last but not least : the event takes place in a famious Wine producing region of France.
so you can also come to taste fine "Côtes du Rhône" as well.

Good spirit, they actually appreciated to be defeated by two amazing 8bit Amstrad prods and may come and try even stronger next time.
some Amiga releases weren't impressive and they were too somewhat bothered that Amstrads and Atari shoveled gravels up their arses like the fists of angry gods.
Overall not the biggest releasefull Demoparty but quite some composition this year and nice competitors as well...
Else we were around 20 Amstrad users, most known from/via Amstrad.eu or CPCrulez forums.
