Atari Video Club Officially Opens News Stand
For Immediate Release:
October 18th, 2004:

The Atari Video Club is proud to announce The Grand Opening of the AVC News Stand.
Dan Iacovelli, AVC/JCU Chairperson, started opening the news stand back in June of 2004 with the Final Jagfest issue, and later added the other 6 six Jagfest issues to the news stand every 10th day. The news stand is actually a reworked version of the old back issue pages from AVC online the clubs website (which is still accessible but only through the news stand).
The News Stand has images from the covers from the issues as well as full descriptions of the issues, plus an extra feature to the news stand is that fest issues are not only available in normal print versions (as they have been in the past) as well as in PDF form but will also be available at cafepress.com.
Currently as of this writing only the Jagfest issues are listed on the news
stand as well as the programs from our computer and video game trade show The Video Game Summit (the programs are only available thru Cafepress.com (the 2004 program is currently at the VGS shop at cafepress.com (http://www.cafepress.com/VGS) while the 2003 program is listed at AVC news stand at cafepress.com (http://www.cafepress.com/avcnews)
(this is where all the jagfest issues are at as well)).

AVC also announces plans for a new magazine only to be available thru
cafepress.com To be entitled "Into The Zone". This magazine is actually a
combination of 2 regular Atari Zone issues (Regular issues are
uaslly 12 pages long). Regular Atari Zone issues will still be available in
normal print and PDF forms) The first set of "Into The Zone" issues will
actually come from the back issues of the Atari Zone (while there are a few back issues that are more 12 pages long they won't be combined but will still be called "Into The Zone" for the cafepress edition (the normal version will be called "the Atari Zone").
"Into The Zone" is most likely to debut some time early next year (it won't be available by subscription though but the Atari zone issues will still be) The AVC News Stand can be viewed by going to AVC Online
(http://avc.atari-users.net) and clicking on the button that will take you to
news stand site.

End Release

I have decided to give AVC Online a major over haul and now I'm proud to say thats it's finally done:
what changed: the main page has been modified better look(still in black background and red text(the ticker is still there))
the club information page has been changed also.
The calandar page is changed.
News page still the same.
Atari Bowl section has been changed(see below)
whats gone: the AVC newstand section has been dropped and changed it back to the orginal Back issues pages but they now have links to two seperate newstands links: one is a link to paypal shopping cart to order jagfest issues via paypal, the other is link straight to cafepress.com.
now on to AtariBowl 2006:
the whole format of the competion has been revamped.
it's still a team competition, but now theres only two leagues Icons and Avatars.
plus now teams feature all 5 systems in squads and each squad consists of 3 players and each play one a week. for more information please see the ataribowl
section at the website.(it's too much to mention here)

I didn't feel like doing a new topic:
So I figured to add it the one about the website.
Just want to tell you that in 1 week the The VGS Section will open up at the AVC Newstsand at cafepress.com
I'm still working on adding a few items(revising the current t-shirts with dates from the last three shows and slogans as well) there will be one change that will noticed right away though:
All VGS Programs will have a lower price then what they are now, this is because for my mark up I am just adding the cost of printing to it(as if Iwas printing it myself) Also on the matter of pricing: the VGS items will be changed on some items since I'm basicly only asking 10% of the base price for markup ie: a dark collered t-shirt cost 18.99 on base
10% of that 1.89 the total cost will be 20.89. (.10 cent less then what I was selling them for)
Speaking of dark t-shirts: the VGS T-shirt will be in two colors the orginal Black color and now in the new Red color
(it looks real good in red too)
The Jagfest T-shirts also come in the same two colors,I however had to change thext from red to Black to show up
on the red shirt(btw: I redid the Text too, the first way doesn't look great, the new text is simlar but it more clear and ledge able).
on the subject of Jagfest: I'm working on adding an unoffical tour T-shirt with the Jagfest on tour logo on the front
and a list of all the cities,states and countries on the back with the dates of each fest stop(I basicly know most of the US
and some of the overseas locations(at least up to 2004),if you know of the locations PM me(this is basicly for overseas since Ido know every US stop including 2007).
The shirt is planned to be released by MGC in june.(I don't know if I will be selling them or not over there but I'm prob be taking orders)

It's seems once again I hit a snag in cafepress shop.
I had two really cool T-shirts up at the AVC section
and now because of copy rights I'm forced to take them down
(because they had Atari on it(I think it was the logo, I'm going to e-mail Atari first though,before Idecied to rework the design),the same dang thing happened to me when Ifirst opened the news stand with the Jagfest items)

Version 2 Shirts (as I call them): are shirts with a multi colored Logo(based on the 2003 and 2005 logo) and the back of the shirt has the slogan combined from 2003 and 2006.
Version 1 shirts: havea tri-colored logo on the front and the slogan from 2006

Currently, Version 2 shirts are from 2003 to 2005(I'll be working on 2006

Version 1 shirts is currently from 2006,I'm planning to add 2003 to 2005
soon.
All hats will remain in Version 1 format(tri-colored logo)
more dark colored shirts will be added in the future.
