Atari Party 2010
Sunday, March 14th in Davis, California

Free Prize Drawing

Thanks to our generous sponsors, we've got a ton of cool stuff we'll be giving away as prizes in a free prize drawing at this year's event!

Note: I had previously been calling this a 'raffle', but 'free prize drawing' is more accurate, since tickets are not being sold, and donations are not being asked for.

How the Drawing Will Work

Each attendee will receive two free raffle tickets. Depending on which prizes you're interested in winning — books, joysticks, gift certificates, or Atari computer systems — you'll place half of each of your tickets into one of four boxes, and keep the other halves.

Drawings will be held for prizes three times during the event: at 3:30pm, 4:30pm and 5:30pm (see the schedule). Each time, we'll draw three tickets from the "books" box (since we have 9 books to give away), one or two tickets from the "gift certificates" box (since we have 5 to give away), and one from the other two boxes: joysticks and Atari systems.


Eight video game programming and retro game hacking books from O'Reilly Media.

USB Joysticks

Four USB joysticks for PC, Mac and Linux in the shape of the original Atari CX40 (the joystick that came with the Atari VCS), designed and donated by Legacy Engineering.

Gift Certificates

Three $100 gift certificates to, purveyors of a wide assortment of gadgetry, toys, decorations, hardware and more.

Two $50 vouchers to Tux Games, who sell video games for Linux PCs.

Atari computer systems

Jeff Fehlman from Sacramento donated his collection of Atari equipment to Atari Party coordinator Bill Kendrick, who has assembled them into a set of computer systems.
