For immediate release:

ROCHESTER, MN -- Attend JagFest '99. Get a free game. It's that simple.
At least, that's the message coming from Carl Forhan of Songbird
Productions, the organizer and promoter of the event.

Each paid adult admission to JagFest '99 will include a coupon for up to
$3 off a single item purchase from the Songbird Productions table. A
variety of factory-new 2600 and 7800 games will be available for under $3,
as well as a number of current and new games for the Jaguar and Lynx and
other Atari merchandise at normal retail prices. Simply present your
coupon at the Songbird Productions table, and you can walk away with a
free 2600 or 7800 game, or use the coupon to get a discount off of other
merchandise. *

Sponsors are also being lined up for JagFest '99, to be held at the
Holiday Inn South in Rochester, MN, on June 18, 1999. Songbird
Productions, Go Atari, Hozer Video Games, Jerry G. Classic Gold Video
Games, and Atari Video Club have all agreed to sponsor JagFest.

More sponsors are being contacted at this time, and it is hoped that
several companies and game shops will be in attendance at JagFest '99.

* - One coupon per item, up to $3 off the retail price. No refunds if the
entire face value of the coupon is not used. Coupon valid only on June 18,
1999, and while supplies of merchandise last at the Songbird Productions
table. Coupon may not be combined with any other offer. You must purchase
an adult admission to JagFest '99 to receive this coupon.
