Thanks very much guys for coming along and for your kind words I thought it was a great day, lovely people and lots of interesting chats, and a nice selection of machines to play with too.

Ah sorry, not likely to be another until Feb next year now - they tend to be around every 6 months.

Due to popular demand, the next Scottish Amiga Users meetup will be held on Sunday, 9th December 2018, from 12 noon until 6pm. It will take place in the same venue as last time (Shawlands Church Hall, Mossside road, Glasgow G41 3PT), and afterwards we'll head to a nearby establishment for food, drinks and more chats. There'll be plenty of Amigas on show, and some other retro hardware too. Hope to see you there!

Who needs a case? Show off the board in all its glory!

(I can probably rustle up a case if you're stuck)

Less than two weeks to go until the meetup It's generally a pretty casual format, with lots of Amiga and other retro gear to have a look at, but the features we'll have at it include:

- OS 3.1.4 installation workshop
- SWOS tournament
- Magazine corner

And, depending on some things coming together:
- Demonstrations of some upcoming hardware
- MIDI demonstration/workshop

back in the day, a lot of the ST cracking groups came from Glasgow area.
SCC (scotish cracking crew) (zippy from Medway Boys) etc

We used to go to the Barras market (in glasgow) for the games

Ha, I'm only in Glasgow a few years, but I've heard tell of the legendary piratefest that was the Barras market

I had a friend (she's still there actually, still see her a couple of times a year) who used to live round the corner in the east end and had a few interesting trips to the Barras back in the day, the stuff on sale, dodgy doesn't cover it!

Yep - it's actually joined onto the church itself and you go in through the main church door.

The next meetup of the Scottish Amiga Users is now booked for Sunday, 28th April. It will take place in the same venue as last time (Shawlands Church Hall, 111 Mossside road, Glasgow G41 3PT), from midday until 6pm, and then on to a local establishment for food and drinks. All are welcome, there'll be a nice selection of Amiga and retro machines to have a look at, and if you'd like to bring your own along, let me know and I'll reserve a space for you.

Tea and coffee will be provided. Entry is free, but donations towards the hall hire would be greatly appreciated.
