In October, back to Baitik!
Like last time, the Festival will be held on October 21-23, 2022. all in the same, loved by all, health-improving and educational complex "Baitik". Everything will be at home, everything we love is warm and lamp-like. Comfortable rooms to suit every budget, a conference hall with high-quality sound and a large screen, good food, a comfortable barbecue area, a spacious (but secret 🙂 ) vip hall for contestants and sponsors, as well as other joys of demoscene life.
"Baitik" is located in a picturesque corner, not far from the city of Kazan. Fresh air, magnificent nature, a real forest, the purest water (even from a tap!) and the "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.
On the territory of the camp there is: a horse yard (yes, you can ride), a poultry yard (yes, you can feed partridges), a football field, a volleyball court, a swing-slide-carousel ... Organized four meals a day (with compote!), Bunk beds (their children love, we know!) in rooms of different comfort.
Why are we talking about this? And what about the demoscene?
It's simple - bring your families! If your wives / children do not want to let you go alone, but do not understand the demoscene at all (this is your omission, by the way), then they will find something to do while you plunge into “demoving”!
