 RSI, AFL, SPECTRAL  PARTY-REPORT #
----------------------------------#
                                  #
The  Red Sector,  Alpha Flight and#
Spectral Party was visited by  the#
following   Swiss   BRS - members:#
CHESTER,  MAJESTIC,  COM,  TRUXION#
                                  #
We  meet  us  at  7:30 a.m. at the#
station  in  Basle,  our hometown.#
The  train for Luxembourg departed#
at  8:21  and  so  we weren't in a#
hurry.                            #
                                  #
At   11:57  we  arrived  in Luxem-#
bourg.  We went to the Information#
and   asked   them  how  to  go to#
Echternach.  They  said that a bus#
leaves  in  two  minutes.  We said#
forget it (too much stress...) and#
asked  for  the  next one. "In two#
hours!" - we ran with  our  A 500,#
the monitor and all other  luggage#
to  the  bus  station,   where  we#
finaly  found  the  bus.   So,  we#
wanted  to  buy  the  tickets with#
Swiss  money.  Of  course that did#
not  work. So we had to change our#
money  fast.  And  we  managed  it#
again, in 2 minutes by the way!   #
                                  #
Arrived  at  Echternach (12:50) we#
have been searching for the 'Place#
de marchet', we had NO invitation!#
It  wasn't  hard to find the place#
but  nobody  was  there. IRATA/RSI#
said  to  us,  that  there will be#
some  guys  waiting  for us. Okay,#
after  5 minutes of waiting, there#
came   some   AFL   and   SPECTRAL#
members.  The way to the party was#
quite easy to find.               #
                                  #
At the party, there were about 150#
until 200 people in front of their#
computers. The room was in a hotel#
and  a  little  bit  small  for so#
many  computers and people. We had#
problems  to get a free table but,#
believe  it  or not, we have found#
one!                              #
                                  #
Some  releses  coming  out  at the#
party:   BRS-MegaDemo,   BRS-Zine,#
Level 4 SoundDisk, Aeon SoundDisk,#
demos  from  Vision  One  of Alpha#
Flight,  demos from Spectral, Iris#
MegaDemo,  and  some   other   un-#
interesting stuff.                #
                                  #
The  following  groups were at the#
party:  RED SECTOR,  ALPHA FLIGHT,#
SPECTRAL,    IRIS,    SPREADPOINT,#
ZYLON,  TRISTAR,  ABYSS,  LEVEL 4,#
CULT,   BCI,   SUCCESS,  TWILIGHT,#
CASCADE,  ABAKUS,  AEON,  EXTREME,#
LAZER,  SUBSOFT,  TARKUS TEAM, TCS#
of  ILLUSION,  TOM L, YOLK ROQUES,#
MAD  MACS,  Dr.  MABUSE,  MIKE  of#
VISION  FACTORY,...  and  a lot of#
others.                           #
                                  #
First  of all we had to delete the#
last  bugs  from the MegaDemo, but#
I  think,  some  are  still  in...#
ZINE  4  was  also  finnished  and#
spreaded.  After  interviewing VF,#
Tristar,  Dr.Mabuse/AFL, Tom L and#
IRATA/RSI  (look in other articles#
of  this  ZINE  issue)  the  demo-#
competition began.                #
                                  #
The  demos  wereshown  on four TVs#
and    stereo.    There   was   no#
competition   for  our  Mega-Demo.#
Only  some  AFL (Vision One) demos#
and  a  Spectral  demo  were good,#
too.                              #
                                  #
So,  we  won  the first price with#
the   filled   vector   part  from#
LUKE/BRAINSTORM,    2nd   was   an#
ALPHA   FLIGHT  (Vision One)  demo#
and  the  third  was the ball-demo#
from  BIRD/BRAINSTORM.  We  do not#
know   why  they  picked  out  the#
parts   from   the  MegaDemo,  but#
that does not matter.             #
                                  #
We  won a goblet, nothing special,#
and a bottle of champaign.        #
                                  #
At  the  moment  we  wanted to go,#
there   were  some  police-men  in#
the  next  street,  so we began to#
pack  our  things  faster and went#
to  the  bus-station.  Arrived  at#
Luxembourg  we  had  to wait three#
(!) hours  for our train to Basle.#
So  what  we  did  to  waiste some#
time,  we went to the train-buffet#
at  spend  our last foreign money.#
The  trouble was the buffet closed#
at  24:00  and outside it was very#
cold.  And  added  to all that our#
train  didn't  leave until 1:18 in#
the  morning!  So  we  were kicked#
out  of  the  warm buffet into the#
cold street.                      #
                                  #
But  what  did  we see there, next#
to  a  phone  booth there was this#
big  puddle  (small lake) of blood#
(no joke!!!).                     #
                                  #
                                  #
                                  #
(...continued from last article)  #
                                  #
This  frightened  the  shit out of#
us.                               #
                                  #
Scared  as  hell  we  went to rail#
number  seven,  to  wait there for#
another  hour  for  our  train. As#
we  just  arrived  at  the rail we#
heard  a  shot. Somebody shot with#
a gun!                            #
                                  #
This  only  increased  our  horror#
visions.   You   can  imagine  how#
happy   we  were  seeing the train#
to Basle arrive.                  #
It  was  now  1:18 in the morning,#
we  entered  the  train  and slept#
through  until Basle (only Truxion#
couldn't  sleep  because  COM  was#
using  up  all the space. You have#
to  know  that  COM  always  takes#
up all the space.).               #
                                  #
We arrived at Basle/Switzerland at#
5:12 in the morning.              #
                                  #
                                  #
Facit of the party:               #
The  people  at the party were all#
cool,  as  usual. The party itself#
wasn't  too  good,  the service of#
the  hotel  and  the room was bad!#
The democompetition was boring... #
                                  #
The  best  of  the  whole  weekend#
was  the  trip  to  Luxembourg and#
back,  especially the blood on the#
floor in Luxembourg...            #
