Amiga gamers/gaming meets?

Hello all,

I'm from the Midlands area of the UK. Just wondering if there are any Amiga gamers out there in the vicinity or anyone aware of local Amiga meets by fans/gamers etc?!

Thanks in advance,
Lesta

I am in the west mids, I don't know of any retro meets planned but would love to go to one. Went to one in Stoke a couple of years back and had a great time. Had a hangover from hell though. Shared some hotel rooms with guys from the retro computer museum, woke up Sunday morning with a can of beer in the bed.

8bit looks good! Being weekday makes it a little difficult but going to try make it! Either that - or we make our own meet! Unfortunately, I've not got any Amiga's with me anymore hence heavily relying on emulators!

I don't know if you're into Kick Off 2 but there is a strong Amiga KO2 community in the West Midlands, in fact the last World Cup was held in Birmingham three months ago.
