About Kindergarden

The party

In short, Kindergarden 2011 is a demoparty which will take place during the weekend stretching from the 4th to the 6th of November 2011 at Haga Samfunnshus in eastern Norway. As for every demoparty with self respect there will be compos, entertainment, great people and a friendly atmosphere. Check out the pictures from 2009 to see for yourself!

Kindergarden 2011 is organized by Boozoholics.

Facilities at the venue

The place can seat around 100 people, and it also has a small sleeping hall. Tables, chairs and electricity comes included in the entrance fee (feel free to bring your own extension cords though, to be sure to get connected). We have a small cafeteria where we strive to keep some of your hunger and thirst at bay. Please note that the partyplace probably has no connection to the internet. However, there will be a small intranet available, so bring your network cables.

There will also be a grill / bonfire and some wood. Feel free to bring extra wood, as we always tend to run out.

The food

After the success of the last five years, we will as always have a food menu. The details are as follows:

The price for dinner is 50NOK (about 6) each, while breakfast is 25NOK (about 3). You can also buy the whole package at once for 100NOK(about 12). Please note that the dinner for Friday has to be ordered and paid for Wednesday 2nd of November the latest. This so we know how much food to make. Deadline for ordering the Saturday dinner will be announced later, along with the full menu. If you happen to be allergic to something or a vegetarian, please let us know using the contact form, so we can take this into consideration while assembling the menu.

The crew

No Kindergarden without a crew running around not knowing shit. This year we consist of:

The rules

Every place has it's own set of rules. Kindergarden is no exception. These rules have built up during the years and are as follow:


There will always be something that people wonder about, and will call us voice and nag about. This should answer most of your queries.

Q: Can we reserve tables at Kindergarden for our group?
A: Only if you bring single malt whiskey or Havana Club Rum for Menace.
Q: I'm a gamer. Can I come to KG?
A: No! Die! But seriosly, if you go to KG to play games you really are in the wrong place. Kindergarden has it's focus on the demoscene and not gaming. But if you're curious and want to see what this demoscene thing is all about then KG is a perfect place to learn. Talk to the sceners there and watch the compos. We're sure you'll be inspired.
Q: Can I bring my microwave oven/fridge/etc?
A: Sure, if you bring your own supply of power.
Q: Is there any bustrips to Kindergarden from foreign countries?
A: Check newsgroups or scenerelated websites. We'll put some info up about trips if we recieve any.
Q: Can I steal some equipment at the party? I really want that inflatable USB buttplug.
A: Sure. Can we rip out all your nails, beat you to a blood pulp with a baseball bat and put needles in your testicles?
Q: Can we stretch the deadlines?
A: Earlier we've been quite flexible when it comes to deadlines. TOO flexible. Because of this we didn't have enough time to prepare the compos. If you want the compos to run smooth without delays then you can contribute by delivering your entry in time.
Q: What's this rumour I hear about there being an 18-year limit?
A: Limiting the party to those of eighteen years of age or older allows us to avoid the rapidly increasing number of 14 year old gamers and it means that the visitors acts more responsible and fair. Also, you have to be over 18 to drink alcohol in Norway, and this way we don't have to run around babysitting you. We don't see the limit as a problem since most of the people usually attending KG are over 18 anyway. If you really wanna come to KG even if you're underaged then contact the organizers and ask for an invitation. This should be no problem if your're a scener or want to become one.
