Thanks for the support guys. I really hope we can use this interest as a stepping stone for something bigger. I am convinced that the potential is there. There are quite a number of Amiga users locally and from what I've seen a decent number of people would be prepared to travel to such an event too. Regardless of that, another pub meet with a few more people will still happen at some point - it definitely adds something to the whole Amiga experience to meet with like-minded people in real life so I'd encourage anyone in other areas who is thinking along the same lines to take the plunge and do it.

Hi everyone, sorry to bump this thread which only a small percentage of Amiga users will be interested in, but I created a Facebook group for those of us in Norwich and the surrounding area...

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1885186608411462/

Thanks everyone! Hopefully we can have more frequent events and meetups if this gets going

Sorry to bump this a few months on, but we have another meet organised.

The public event is on Facebook, if you have an account there: https://www.facebook.com/events/1768118773217939/

If not, here are the details:

Date: Saturday 2nd September
Venue: The Rumsey Wells, St Andrews Street, NR2 4AF
Time: 18:30

Anyone welcome to come along for a few drinks and meeting and talking to like-minded people. We've only had a few people at each meet so far but everyone who has come along has been good company and a nice time has been had. So if you're about do join us! (And post this elsewhere if you can)

One more bump from me about this latest meet.

If anyone's about in the area and wants to come along tomorrow, please feel free. And as usual, if you're also on Facebook, please come and join the Norwich Amiga Group also

Thanks chaps! Yes, it was a good evening. Three of us came along once again for another enjoyable few hours with a few pints and pies (which I was reliably informed were very nice - I didn't have one myself).

Eventually I hope we can be in a position where more people are able to come - there's definitely some interest there

I'd like to get to a point where we can hold our own little events with machines to play with and/or be able to arrange car shares etc to go to other events around the country (such as the Play Expo in Blackpool maybe).

Just realised I forgot to post details of the next meet here, so here it is:

Date: Saturday 2nd December
Venue: The Rumsey Wells, St Andrews Street, NR2 4AF
Time: 18:30

It's relatively short notice now but if anyone here is close by and fancies coming along we'll have a few people there.

On Facebook here.
