Announcing SWAG Meet #9

We’d like to give a big thank you to everyone who took the time to answer the questions set in our recent survey. From this we’ve learned a lot about the people who attend the SWAG meets and will use this information to help the group grow over the next 12 months.

With the results collated, we were planning to ask The Swindon Makerspace if they’d let us descend on their venue one Saturday afternoon in May. Our planned return to Swindon has been put on hold however as an event sponsor has stepped forward, generously offering to cover the majority of our room hire if we use Dodington Parish Hall for our next meet.

We are now pleased to announce that Dodington Parish Hall, Chipping Sodbury, Bristol, BS37 6JZ has been booked and the date of the next meet is Saturday 18th May, running from 10am - 10pm.

It is highly likely that our sponsor will be the guest speaker at the event. You can also expect further game tournaments with prizes, the repair desk and classic Amiga mods and remixes being aired over the speaker system.

If there’s enough interest we’ll be swapping the sandwich platters we had at Workbench 2019 with breakfast/brunch baps delivered around noon.

We should be able to reveal our sponsor next month and will confirm prices shortly. As the event is sponsored the cost will be lower than the £7 per person charged for Workbench 2019.

If you’d like to attend please respond to this thread. So far we have 20 people signed up,

Many thanks.

SWAG #9 - Saturday 18th May, 10am - 10pm
Sponsored by Stephen Jones of Checkmate

We are returning to Chipping Sodbury near Bristol for our next meet but this time we will be in the presence of Stephen Jones of Checkmate. 30 Years after the original introduction of the Checkmate case, Stephen is now putting his finishing touches to his latest creation following a successful Kickstarter campaign that will bring a new highly configurable case for your existing Amiga. Follow the progress on his website or come and see the new case for yourself at SWAG #9.

Stephen has also very kindly sponsored the event and covered all room hire costs. If you see him on the day then please do say “Thank you”. He, more than anyone else, has made the day possible.

The event is being held at Dodington Parish Hall, Chipping Sodbury, on Saturday 18th May, and runs for a whopping 12 hours from 10am to 10pm. Along with Stephen’s case unveiling we’ll have our tech team on site upgrading and repairing classic Amiga hardware, mod tracker demonstrations, Deluxe Paint tutorials, game tournaments and much more besides. If you haven’t been to a previous SWAG all day event then this would be a great time for you to come along.

Since we have been growing rapidly, we’ve decided to set up a booking system so you can reserve a table. The booking system will open at Saturday at 6pm UK Time, so get your order in sooner rather than later. Tables are limited! If you just wish to attend but do not require a table then you will still be very welcome. Regardless of whether you’re booking a table or not, the attendance cost is £5.50, to be paid in advance. This covers the cost of lunch, snacks, soft drinks, tea/coffee and disposables. Under 18s accompanied by a fee paying adult are free, but do let us know you’re bringing them so that we have an idea of numbers and know how many sandwiches to order for lunch.

We look forward to seeing you!

Tickets go on sale at 6:00pm UK time on Saturday 13th April 2019.
