25 Years Cascade
Author: Zeldin - written on 25.07.2013

25 Years CascadeHappy birthday!!! Cascade was found in April 1988 (read trivia for more info) and so this makes it a fourth of a century old. We planned to celebrate this with a little, sweet demo. It would have contained the graphics you see on the right (more info about it here). But we sadly failed, due to time intensive real life things. We already missed the 20 years celebration demo and together with lots of other failed projects, all the unfinished parts, routines, graphics and stuff are slowly filling more an more disks in our boxes. Anyway... we are still around, and one day we will even manage to pull out a demo again, I am sure. In the meantime you might enjoy the shown no-border graphic, made for the jubilee.

Now a short message to all current or former Cascade members: Wherever you are, to which coast of life you got drifted, I want to send you my warm hearted greetings and all my love. Feel honoured, that you have been (or still are) part of a project, that was started as a simple hobby of some young lads - unprofessional, non-commercial, not lifestyle driven and not guided by any political or industrial elites - and still it exists after 25 years! I feel very proud of that and so should you!
