Event: No more Amiga-shows in St. Louis
Since 1994 Bob and Diana Scharp have organized a great Amigashow in St. Louis and have spent much of their spare time for it. Now they decided to adopt a child which of course will have supreme priority and which lead to the decision of organizing no more shows. Now please read the complete article:

Fellow Amigans,

Over the years, Amigan-St. Louis, (Bob & Diana Scharp), have brought you many years of Amiga fun and edification. Namely the Amiga shows we hosted in St. Louis, MO. U.S.A. Since early 1994, we have been involved with providing the Amiga community with some of the best Amiga shows ever put on. Eventually we formed our own company, Amigan-St. Louis, to run these shows as they got too big to handle with just volunteers.

We have had many famous people and groups attend, exhibit, and showcase their products at our events. Some notable guests include a few Astronauts - Steve Nagel and Linda Godwin, a singing and dancing group - ANNEX, some celebrities - all of the various Amiga owners, presidents, staff. Notables such as Petro Tyschtschenko, Mitch Stone of Boycott Micro$oft, radio host Jim Singler, plus too many famous Amigans to mention.

We have not only hosted shows, but held banquets that have become famous by themselves. Who would ever forget the reintroduction of Amiga with Gateway, or even better with Bill McEwen. Then there was the ROAST of Petro Tyschtschenko. We celebrated Petro's many years of service to the Amiga community and his retirement the day of the banquet at our show Amiga2001. That will live in our hearts for many years.

Unfortunately, we cannot continue the shows for now. There will be no Amiga 2002 show, sponsored by us. The good news, is the reason why.

Diana and I are adopting a child. Our lives will be even busier than usual this year and next, so we will have to pass the torch, at least for awhile, to others. Although we are not ruling out the possibility of a future show sponsored by us, we just can't possibly do any for now.

We hope you will understand. We hope you will keep the Amiga in your hearts. Hey, we hope to see some of you at other shows and events. Maybe we will be able to bring our newest Amigan with us.

So for now, we bid farewell to the show side of our business, but please consider purchasing some of our latest products from our company.

As a final note on Amiga shows in the U.S., I understand that Kermit Woodall of Nova Design is putting one together for the east coast. It is supposed to be held the last weekend of March 2002. For information, keep an eye on and other news sites.

It has been a great pleasure working with many of you, and showcasing the Amiga and it's capabilities. I wish all of you great success, and we hope to see you all again.

Best Regards,

Bob & Diana Scharp (ps) (Translation: dr)
