New UK group, West Midlands, Saturday 21 October 2023
« on: September 03, 2023, 01:35:23 PM »
I'm pleased to announce the first meeting of a new Amiga User Group, to be held on Saturday 21 October. We don't have a name yet.

Time: from 11 am
Location: The Westbury Community Centre, Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, CV31 3JE. https://g.co/kgs/yyyKST

We're getting the room for free on this occasion so there's no charge for entry.

More details to follow.

I'll be advertising on the Amiga groups on Facebook later today.

Nice! Well done!  8)

It's not far from the Zzap! Live venue either! Can anyone bring their kit?

A friend and I were inspired after doing a retro gaming event, and then attending Kickstart and Zzap.

I'll be posting images, and more details in the coming weeks, but there are plenty of sockets and tables available if anyone wants to bring their kit.

How are the arrangements going! Is it possible to bring along a few second hand items to sell?

Here are a few updates.

Most exciting is that we have a name...Midlands Amiga Enthusiasts, or MAE! Meetings will be MAE Days. :-)

For our first meeting we'll be using the Mary Edwards Room at The Westbury Centre. It has 16 plug sockets (8 doubles) and there are plenty of tables and extension leads available.

Please feel free to bring your Amiga-related systems.

If you have anything to sell, please also feel free to bring it. Trades will be private between the buyer and seller, and not the responsibility of the group.

There are two car parks in site, one at the back has 8 marked spaces, one of which is a disabled space. There is a car park at the front (also used by dog walkers etc for the nearby park) which has about 9 spaces, one of which is disabled. There is free on-street parking too.

There are toilets on site with disabled and baby change facilities.

The room we'll use has a small kitchen area and we'll have tea, coffee and squash available. There is a McDonalds about two minutes walk away, and a retail park with supermarkets and coffee shops about five minutes walk away.

See you between 11am and 4pm on Saturday 21 October.
