We just opened KansasFest registration (featuring a keynote this year
by Nibble magazine editor Mike Harvey).

Here's a link to the release:

It's a fun week of hanging out with other Apple II aficionados. Kind
of like a longer version of VCF East.


KansasFest 2016 opens for registration

KansasFest 2016, the 28th annual Apple II convention, is now open for
registration.  Users, programmers, hobbyists, and retrocomputing
enthusiasts are invited to Rockhurst University in Kansas City,
Missouri, from Tuesday, July 19, through Sunday, July 24, for six days
and five nights of sessions, demos, announcements, contests, and

Mike Harvey, a business executive, salesperson, technologist, project
manager, entrepreneur, programmer, and best known in the Apple
community as the founder and publisher of Nibble magazine, will join
us with a keynote presentation. Harvey will be available immediately
afterward for a Q&A and autograph session.

Attendees are encouraged to share their knowledge by presenting their
own hardware and software sessions related to the Apple II. All
KansasFest sessions are presented by the attendees, who are known for
unscheduled events and debuts, too. Whether it's a behind-the-scenes
look at new software, preorder opportunities for new hardware, a
hands-on workshop, a podcast recording session, Structris tournaments,
or an athletic round of Bite the Bag, there are experiences to be had
and memories to be made at KansasFest that aren't possible except in
the company of surprising, brilliant, diehard Apple II fans.

Register by May 31 to guarantee a price of $385 for a double room or
$455 for a single, which includes admission to all sessions as well as
most meals. After that, prices rise $55. Official KansasFest shirts
are extra and optional and must be ordered by June 22; registration
for staying on-site closes July 1. To register, please visit the
official registration form.

KansasFest invites any and all Apple II users, fans, and friends to
attend the longest running annual Apple II conference. KansasFest is
working towards non-profit status, which will help keep the conference
alive for many more years. For photos, videos, schedules, and
presentations from past year's events or to sign up for the email list
and for inquiries, please browse our website at
