KANSAS CITY, MO — April 9, 2014 — KansasFest, the 26th annual convention
dedicated to the Apple II computer, is now open for registration. Users,
programmers, hobbyists, and retrocomputing enthusiasts are invited to
Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri, from Tuesday, July 22,
through Sunday, July 27, for six days and five nights of sessions,
demos, announcements, contests, and camaraderie.

The week kicks off with keynote speaker Margot Comstock, co-founder and
editor of the much-loved Softalk magazine. Comstock 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, especially of the Apple II but
including Macintosh, Windows, Linux, iOS, and others. 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 live-action text
adventure, a podcast recording session, Structris tournaments, or an
athletic round of Bite the Bag, there are experiences to be had and
memories made at KansasFest that aren't possible except in the company
of surprising, brilliant, diehard Apple II fans.

Register before June 1 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. Official KansasFest shirts are extra and optional and must
be ordered by July 1; registration for staying on-site closes July 8. To
