I’d be up for it, definitely, depending on the date of course.

Try and get Dan Wood and Ravi along! They’re Nottingham based, I think.

I'm originally from Nottingham. I'm suprised I never heard of Nottingham Amiga club. I live in Leicester now but i'd be up for a trip to Nottingham to meet up. When was the Nottingham Amiga Club active and where did you meet?

Of course. I was heavily into the Amiga scene, throughout most of the 90's.


Where is not far from here?

Cool. In the early to mid 90's I used to hang out with some Amiga fans in whitemoor/old-basford area of Nottingham at a pd-library where we used to trade games and the like.

I’ll definitely bring down at least one of my big box Amigas for some gaming fun!

Maybe the X68000 too as that’s pretty cool to compare to Amigas

And the Falcon!
