|Sometimes this party is referred to as Ikari/Dominators/Upfront/Danish Gold|
Copyparty, so it must be the days during or a few days before when the Danes joined Ikari.

|I remember that "raid"! It was on Sunday morning, I believe, when most of the people already started to collect their equipment and prepare themselves on their way home. We already packed our stuff and parked our car around tha corner. As we decided to stay a bit longer, we just stood their and suddenlay watched people panicking, just taking his C64 or Monitor and jumping out open windows and alike.|
Was obviously the highlight of this party :)

|The party was organized chaos and like stated below there was some seriouse lack of space, towns, food and transportations. The "second" partyplaces where "raided" by the danish police or we THOUGHT it was. Someone started to scream "Police, police!" and the partyplace was empty in a moment. Peoples hide under a scene(!) and folks just threw themself out the window. When the places where emptied no police where insight! What really had happend was that one nervwreck of a scener had seen a Taxicab driver witch he thougt was a police and freaked! Then we have the Triad-trashing-the-place story witch I wont even go more into here... :-)|

|It was Thursday evening when we (Our driving friend,Ioannis; T.K. ; Hi Tec and me ) started our way to the IKARI-DOMINATORS-DANISH GOLD and UPFRONT party in Denmark. After we drove ?|
hours (I even drove 3 hours during the darkest night. I blew the horn several times to be sure nobody was able to sleep...) when we finally arrived in the small village where the party should take place (after T.K. bought a small
street map for 11 Mark 90...), it was about 4.30 in the morning, we stopped somewhere in the town, 'cuz two dudes came running from behind... Gosh, they were our TRIAD pals MR.PINGE and 801 DC!
Well, after Pinge had some problems to find the way back to the party place... we finally arrived in a small hut, where perhaps 30 guys would have enough place... About 20 guys were already there, among them BAMBAM/HTL, RADWAR and some more!
So, Janitor and me drove into the city at 9 and bought beer and beer and some food and beer and beer... After we drank the beer and ate the food, we drove into the city to buy some more beer... and beer...
Well, the party capacities were not enough for more than 50 guys, so the guys from DANISH GOLD organized a bigger room (they said they did) but after a race thru whole Denmark (10 km) we found out that the new party place wasn't much bigger...
Okay, Janitor was seriously drunken and went out to sleep on a field outside in his sleeping bag, so did I. We slept 11 hours and the party hadn't improved that much, so we left on Saturday morning... There was not much going on, so
here is my personal DANISH BEER CHART...
1. Calsberg Lager (strong'n'good)
2. Tuborg Gr0n (the classic!)
3. Gamle Carlsberg (not that bad)
4. Tuborg Fine Festival (urps!)
5. Odense Pilsener (not that good)
6. Albani Giraf Beer (tastes like Giraf shit...)
That was the most interesting thing on the whole party, so it was only worth to drink the excellent Danish beer and to meet all TRIAD guys, but for the party...

|A copyparty? We in 2000 A.D. took off Friday, 8th of June to join this party and the trip lasted for 4 hours when we found the little house on top of a forest-like muddy road among cows, pigs and horses! And 150 guys were already inside! The first thing I saw was EXCELL / IKARI who said: "You're not coming in, before you have an apology demo to us and Dominators!" This was quite funny coz the day before I talked to MATRIX / DOM and we made an agreement which was|
that we should stop all shit-talk and we discussed a lot of things and he said
"See ya at the party then!", but EXCELL said that he heard I should have hung up without saying goodbye.
Anyway, we stood outside for 4 or 5 hours, coz one couldn't be inside, there was no space left! Then those guys noticed that it was too small and came up with a new place... 8 km away from the first where everyone should go in the middle of the night and everybody was told that a bus was going to bring 'em to the new place, of course a bus didn't come, so after an hour some taxi-busses
picked up some guys. Coming to the other place we at once recognize that it wasn't much bigger and better as we thought it should be... there was just place enough for us to sit, but not to sleep! So... the solution was we left on
Saturday the party some hundreds kroners poorer.
We missed almost everything: A big place, a big town and supplyment, of course the announced grilling didn't take place... As a conclusion of the party (which was announced to be the greatest ever) one can say: LOADSA COOL GUYS, BUT VERY

|The s451-demo (which was named "Back<-strike", nothing else) was actually not released at the party, since we had problems with ppl unplugging our electrical cords. So, the demo was released once we came back to sweden.|
