Amiga Users & User Groups
« on: March 24, 2018, 03:17:22 PM »
I try to avoid cross posting, but I made an exception to reach as many users as possible.

Occasionally there are posts asking about a user group or other users in a particular area.  With the volume of posts these threads usually don't last too long on the front page and fail to gather much momentum.  I decided to gather up a few of the more recent posts that I could find and create a thread that can hopefully act as a base for individuals looking for users or groups in their area.

There is an extensive list of user groups on the AmigaOS.net website.  If you haven't visited lately, stop by for a look.  http://www.amigaos.net/content/12/user-groups

Here are a few threads I was able to locate:

Kentucky - http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=42417&forum=2#808905

Wisconsin - http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=73301

Des Moines, Iowa - http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=73235

San Diego / Orange County - http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=71690

If you are a member of a user group that isn't mentioned please post the details of your group.  If you're looking for other users in your area please reply as well.

The list is missing The Other Group of Amigoids which holds monthly meetings in San Jose, California.  http://togausergroup.org

AFAIK, that club never really got off the ground.

Thanks for the heads up!  It's always great to hear about another group.  I'll update the other two threads to include it.

Maybe this will spark some interest in it again.

Per mritter0 at Amigans.net:

The Des Moines, Iowa group is Commodore 64/128, not Amiga.
