Adelaide Amiga 30th Anniversary Event (25 May)
« on: November 29, 2014, 10:03:31 AM »
See Page 4 of Thread for Event #2 Details

Hi everyone,

I haven't introduced myself yet on this forum so I'll start with a quick introduction.  Basically, I am an Amiga/Old Vintage Computer enthusiast and own a 1000 and 500 system in the Amiga range.  After purchasing my first Amiga I wanted to get involved with other like-minded persons to discuss and exchange ideas about running the systems etc.

I found this forum after conducting a little internet research and realised that there is a community here in Adelaide that participates in such an interest.  I also noticed that there have been previous meetups where the topic of the Amiga has been the main focus.

So, basically, I would like to host an Amiga Event here in Adelaide on the 19th of January 2015.  This is on a Monday night which will coincide with the Adelaide Amiga/Computer user group that is held weekly in the same venue.

So to summarise the details:

When: 19th of January 2015, 7:30pm sharp.

Where:
Clarence Park Community Centre
72-74 East Ave
Black Forest, SA

What will occur:

I am hoping that people will be prepared to bring their Amiga rigs along and set them up in the large conference room.  This will hopefully create some topics of discussion and/or demonstration amongst everyone.  Furthermore, I am hoping (and will confirm this later) that there will be a guest speaker who will give a surprise presentation on a topic relating to the Amiga.

RSVP: If persons could confirm their attendance by either making a post in this topic or sending me a PM then that would be excellent.

Looking forward to meeting other Amiga enthusiasts in what will be one excellent and memorable night!

Regards to everyone,

George

Hi George,

I'm also an Adelaide Amigan. Good job on organizing this.

I'd like to attend but will have to put myself down as a tentative due to work commitments. Hopefully I can be there.

Cheers

Hey Ben,

Great to hear about your Amiga interest!

Having spoken to some of the other Adelaide guys who are in the Adelaide Amiga/Computer user group, it appears that the most appropriate time to host this is in the new year.  

I have edited the original post to take this into effect.

Cheers and look forward to hearing from anyone else.

George

That date would be better for me, put me down as attending :-) It will also give me time to get my A1200 out of the wardrobe and setup.

How many people are coming along so far?

A colleague of mine who also looks on this board will probably also want to attend, I'll let him know.

eliyahu - Thank you for your assistance :)  Yes - plenty of pictures will certainly be taken for everyone here to see.

Ben - fantastic that you can attend.  At this stage I can confirm that overall we have between 10 to 11 persons attending if we consider AmmoJammo.  Thanks for getting in contact with your colleague as the more we get coming to this event the merrier!

AmmoJammo - It would be great if you came along too :)  I am certain that you will have a fantastic time meeting everyone and having a nice discussion.  Please let me know when you confirm your attendance. :)

Epsilon - Thank you for your confirmation.  Fantastic also that you are attending.

I will keep everyone posted on the nature of this event and will provide an update on numbers.  In my view, it is important that everyone here in Adelaide who has an interest in the Amiga systems keeps in touch with the community whether it be online or in person.  It is always nice discovering others who are enthusiasts and who share the same interests as you!

Best Regards to all,

George

Information Update

I am writing to confirm that after some discussions we decided that it would be preferable to have a Q/A type session with Andrew Wilson who some of you might know as the creator of the Amiga 1000 Phoenix Board.  He is very knowledgeable about all things Amiga and is able to pretty much lecture on a given topic.  

Venue

I have attached a photograph of what the venue looks like just so people do not confuse the building with the other community centre next door.  

There is car park spacing available around the back of this building and you can enter it on the left hand side.

What was the original date for this? as I thought the changed date was December 19th... e.g. Last night...

Guess I haven't missed it yet! lol

While I'm here, is anyone in Adelaide interested in a Commodore 1802 monitor? ;)
