Hey there, fellow Amiga enthusiasts! Let’s talk about the 81st meeting of the Lincolnshire Amiga group, which happened to be our final gathering of 2023 right before Christmas. And boy, did we end the year with a bang!
First off, I have to say that we had a great turn out at this meet. It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces and welcome some new ones as well, a contingent of the Scottish Amiga group no less! It’s always a pleasure to greet members from other clubs and do our best to make them feel welcome. Truly for me this what makes Amiga’s so much fun, being able to meet people from all over and share in the same hobby!
One exciting topic that was discussed during the meeting was the possibility of moving to a larger hall for our future gatherings. And guess what? All club members gave their support for this idea! It seems like we’re ready to expand and accommodate even more Amiga lovers. Having the larger hall could also lend itself to other opportunity, such as LAG holding another one off meet like our 10 year anniversary. Where we had traders and other clubs in attendance.
Now let’s talk about the star of the show – the Amiga computers! We had quite a collection at this meet, ranging from the classic A1200 and A500 models to an A4000 in need of some tender loving care. It’s always fascinating to see these vintage machines still going strong and bringing joy to our hearts. As per usual CDTV’s were out in numbers, for a rare computer, we are now averaging 2-3 a meet. If things get any worse, I might have to recommend we rebrand and call the club the “Lincolnshire Amiga CDTV Group”.
All in all, it was an incredible way to wrap up 2023 with such a memorable meeting. The Lincolnshire Amiga group continues to thrive, and we can’t wait for what lies ahead in the new year. Stay tuned for more updates on our upcoming events and keep spreading that Amiga love!
