Anybody interested in an Amiga group for Manchester/North West

I was wondering if anybody would be interested about starting an Amiga usergroup in the Manchester area / North West (i.e. Cheshire/Lancashire/N. Wales/N. Derbyshire/N. Staffordshire/W. Yorkshire).

I am not suggesting that I would run it, as I have a fairly busy job nowadays, just that when I look on here and other forums I am fairly sure that a few regular meetings a year in the North West (based in Manchester) should lead to a fairly good turn out, say once a quarter.

For the moment I am just interested to see if anybody else is out there with the same thoughts and we can take it from there. Personally I would love to be able to see someones AmigaOne runing OS4, as the possibility of new hardware gets ever nearer.

Is anybody else interest?

Seems like a positive start. I have a few Amiga contacts in the Manchester area so I'll fire off an e-mail to them to see if anybody else is interested.

I'm in Chorley, and work in Manchester, so this sounds good

@ Graham Humphrey

How can you judge coolness if you come from Norwich, the land of Alan Partridge and Sale of the Century, with Nicholas Parsons?

Cool people who came from Norwich - discuss

LOL

Dan, since your amiga is retired... can I borrow your acc-card?

*whistles innocently*

Mine would've been in daily usage still, if my acc-card hadn't died on me
