Almost 20 years after the first festival, the organizers CAFePARTY decided not to forget the customs that made the show to begin with. The jubilee celebration won't be carried out in a pretentious club, giant exhibition art-hall or «mega business center». Everything will be down home, cozy and family friendly, just like we like it.
You will not believe it, but we found the perfect place - a year-round computer camp for schoolchildren and students!
Computer camp «Baitik» is in a picturesque place, right outside of Kazan. Fresh air, natural setting, real forest, clean water (even from the tap!) a true pearl of Tatarstan — Blue lakes. By the way, the camp itself is one of the best educational and entertainment institutions in the Republic of Tatarstan.
Within the camp site, you will find: stables (yes, you can ride a horse), poultry yard (yes, you can feed the partridges), a football court, volleyball court, swings-slides and carousels... Three meals a day will be provided (with stewed fruit!), bunk beds (kids love them, we know!) in rooms of varying comfort categories.
Why are we telling you this? What does the demoscene have to do with that?
Everything is simple — just come with your families! If your wife or kids do not want to let you go alone, but they know absolutely nothing about the demoscene (that is your fault, by the way), they will find something to do while you are immersed in demoing!
