Dear all.
  Do you think there will still be cards on Sunday October 13th at A34 ?
  Kind regards

Unless they put some aside for Sunday, I think your chances are slim to none.

My suggestion is try to come on Sunday and see if there are any events there. If not..ah well.

Thanks for your responses.
In fact, there were no more tickets for Saturday...too late.
I will forget the A34, and I will have to buy a card later :(
Regards.

Given Gunnar showed only 32 V4's being ready for A34, MOST people will be waiting to buy later...

From the September Activity Report:

"Vampire V4
Since June, lot of things happened in team and lot of discussion went on to make sure the Vampire Standalone is a super product and truly a complete new Amiga.
 
Those discussions made us take some very big decision regarding the future of Vampire Standalone. So many questions have been debated until early in the Morning... Isn't the target level too high for us? Isn't Amiga a dead platform after all? Aren't 68020 accelerators good enough for everybody? What if someone resurrect Cyberstorm designs? What if after all trolls were right since the beginning? Is Steven Seagal really a bad actor? After quickly answering all those, we pushed the button and started to mass produce V4 for general availability :-) Period.
 
I am very happy and pleased to confirm everybody that the order for a first batch of Vampire Standalone that will target end-users has been placed!
 
Some very minor changes have been made to the PCB from developers boards you might have seen (mounting holes instead of capacitor holes, removal of 68k socket, optimizing design for solderability, etc.). No feature change, just some adjustment to ease the industrial process.
 
That first batch will also be special as we will be selling it directly. Idea behind this is to let us start very quickly the engine to produce more. Then, next batches will be running exclusively through resellers.
 
To make it even more special, those who will get one will get a complete bundle for the price of the card, meaning they will get tested compatible mouse, compatible keyboard, PSU, case and some other goodies. Also, those sales will be only for people attending Amiga34 and we hope to be able to deliver those bundles during the event. More info will come about that soon."

So, as you can see, we're looking at least a few weeks before the vendors get them. Hopefully it won't take too long.
