Hi All

After my recent acquisition of an A2000 locally from Chiark, we were both wondering how many active users there are locally. So, with my first ever thread on any forum ever (!), what I would like to ask is, are there any other users in Yorkshire?

Were not after doing anything just yet, just want to know how many people there are so please can you post replies to this thread, something along the lines of:

Location: Bradford
Would you be interested in a local meet up?: YEAH! :D

Well thats me done :)

Itll be nice to know were not the only ones :grouphug:

Well, we've already had the inaugural meeting - cup of tea at a convenient sainsburys cafe :D . We live life in style up here.

So yes, I'm in Leeds. Definitely interested in meeting up other muppets (as my wife would kindly label us)

I'm a Yorkshire fella (Bradford born) now living in Cornwall. IMO, I think the Red Rose should stay well West of the Pennines. ;)

Bradford here, would love a social meet. The tajmaster actually helped me get started up again. I would personally love merlin to come, as the postal service seems not to be delivering his mail to me :( Since I'm from the NE originally, the yorkshire/lancashire divide doesn't bother me.

Im very pleased Taj started this thread, cos when Ive searched for yorkshire groups Ive found nothing so far.

@Tajmaster don't forget all the gaming/retro events throughout the year..

Last year many of us were at Huddersfield for a weekend at the Retro Reunited event ;)

Bradford is famous for being the home of Trilogic (they converted my 1901 monitor for use on the Amiga :D ) , the home of the National Museum of Film and Photography and, amongst other things, for curry.

Mention that and you'll have a stampede from the Flat East :D
(Anyone seen Zetr0 around recently?)

I think we should get together for a chat and food to check people might actually be interested, and then look at doing some form of regular event that could include:
- retro gaming
- demo nostalgia on projectors 'n' PAs 'n' stuff
- hardware clinic
- Classic vs Morphos vs Aros vs AmigaOS 4 showdown (a snowball fight would be a great way to settle this...)
- Bring and buy

but let's keep it simple first and set up the chat and food.

Mumtaz? (No alcohol, but people are probably driving...)
