Scottish Amiga Users Meetup!

The second Scottish Amiga Users meetup will be taking place in Glasgow on the 4th of August. It will be held in the church hall of Shawlands Church on Mossside Road, Crossmyloof from 11am until 6pm. Details haven't been finalised yet, but we should have:
- SWOS tournament
- Sensible Golf competition in conjunction with ANT and SWAG Amiga groups
- Soldering demonstration / presentation
- Lots of Amigas to have a look at, as well as some other interesting retro gear

All are welcome, and feel free to bring your own Amiga to show off and chat about with the other members (please bring your own extensions leads as sockets are limited). As before, entry will be free, however a donation would be greatly appreciated to cover the cost of the hall.

Crossmyloof train station is very close by (use the step-free exit when coming from Glasgow Central and turn right), and many buses pass by on Pollokshaws Road. There is free parking nearby, and a spot beside the hall for loading and unloading gear.

Hopefully see some of you there!

No problem! I should add that we will likely head to one of the nearby pubs or restaurants for some food and drinks afterwards, and all are welcome there too.

I've put a very rough plan together for the meeting on Saturday, and it looks something like this:

10:30 I arrive and start setting up tables etc. Others are welcome to come along and give a hand at that stage too

11:00 - 12:30 Meet and greet, set up and have a look around

12:30 - 1:00 Soldering presentation

1:00 - 2:00 Soldering try-outs, also a good time to pop out and grab a sandwich nearby

2:00 - 3:00 Sensible Golf competition

3:30 - 4:30 Sensible Soccer tournament

5:30 - 6:00 Finish up, pack up and tidy up

6:30 - late Lebowski's Southside on Nithsdale Road for food and drinks (area booked)


@Predseda
Awesome

No, but my close friend, who runs our local Amiga forum. He should attend. I can not be there in person as I am going to organise Bubble Bobble party here in my country ;-)

Cool, you probably don't need to see my introduction to soldering anyway It'd be great to see some new hardware demonstrated!

Thumbs up Great meetup

I thoroughly enjoyed the meetup. I attended with my son (rekindled some memories for him, as his first computer was an A600, which I still have) and my grandson, who both enjoyed the day.

There were some great systems there: an A1000 (jealous), micro A1, A4000, A3000, several A600's, one with Vampire, which enthralled me, a Minimig, a Raspberry Pi based Arcade machine which was brilliant, A500, G4 MacBook running MorphOS and a couple of A1XE's.

My grandson enjoyed the Soccer tournament and ADoom? on the microA1 at an amazingly smooth rate - hopefully an Amigan in the making!

Thanks to Rob for organising this meetup.

I'll be back!

Rob, thank you for the well organised meet up, and although I'm not Scottish I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and felt welcome by everyone I spoke with there. It was also nice to put faces to names and get to know lots of new people. Moreover the drinks/meal afterwards was a good laugh!!! and I would love to come again.
