Scottish Amiga User Group Christmas Meetup
« on: October 27, 2018, 01:22:05 PM »
The Christmas meetup of the Scottish Amiga User Group will take place in Glasgow on Sunday the 9th December, and will be held in the same venue as the previous meeting - The Shawlands Church Hall, 111 Mossside Road, G41 3TP. Crossmyloof train station is nearby, and is only a few minutes from Glasgow Central. There'll be plenty of Amigas old and slightly less old to see and play with, and some other interesting retro gear too.

Events for the day are yet to be confirmed, but are likely to include a workshop covering installation of the new Amiga OS 3.1.4 release and of course the obligatory SWOS tournament. Tea and coffee will be available in the hall on the day, and there are nearby shops and cafes for grub if needed. Afterwards we'll likely go for some food and drinks nearby - Lebowski's is a popular choice for its tasty burgers and beer, and extensive White Russian menu :)

Tables will be available for anyone wishing to bring their own gear, and people are welcome to turn up from 11:30 for setting up. There should be plenty of tables available, but let me know if you'd like one and I'll reserve one for you. Please bring extension leads as sockets are limited in the hall.

Entry is free, though donations towards the cost of the hall would be greatly appreciated :)

What time is it on until?

I have some things I need to do early afternoon but should hopefully be free later in the day.

Thanks for dropping in, was good to see you again. Yep, that was John with the synth, and his LED sign and mini tabletop arcade machine were pretty awesome too!

There are some photos in the Scottish Amiga Users group on Facebook.

Yes, those were very nice although the music-y stuff hits my bias so always grabs more of my attention.  :)

I forgot all about the FB group. I've just sent a join request.
I'm away for the rest of the week but am hoping to get a bit of time to download Amiblitz when I get back.

It was indeed, and the burgers and beers afterwards were pretty good too ;)

I don't have any photos myself but I'll ask the guys about uploading them elsewhere.

Yep... There was even the odd whisky had in the later part of the evening, though I feel that was regretted the following morning ;)

One of our members has sent me these photos for public consumption: https://photos.app.goo.gl/RqFXEoyT65Q4KhBM9

Enjoy :)

Thanks for the pix link Rob. Nice meeting! The 060 A2K looks real nice. I like the diversity of machines too.  ;D
