LAG 73 – 6th August

LAG73-Banner

 

The Lincolnshire Amiga group shall be holding its third meeting of 2022 and we welcome you to join us for a day of computers, gaming, tea, coffee, biscuits, obscure 80s references and questionable humour. The order in which you experience these things is entirely optional! If you only have an Atari ST or Super Nintendo, that's fine, bring it along. Many LAG members are in to other platforms, aside from the Amiga, so it's not uncommon to find an old Amstrad CPC or Macintosh at one of our meets.

As always we hope LAG 73 will continue the tradition and see the likes of Amiga's, Spectrums, C64's, Amstrads and Raspberry Pi's in attendance.

The meeting shall begin at 12:PM and end at 5:PM.

LAG UPDATE

Greetings everyone

Due to the pandemic, the committee decided early on that all meetings would be placed on hiatus. Now two years later things are moving forward and it is hoped we will be able to resume club meets next year in 2022. To begin with meetings will be limited numbers and invite only, as the committee looks at how things go. Our primary concern is the safety and well being of our club members and as much as we'd love to resume things they were before, it simply isn't safe to do so.

How to get in touch with the club?

You can either leave a comment here or contact us via our facebook page here

We would love to hear from you and hope you are all keeping safe and virus free

Club Update – All Events Postponed – Corona Virus

Amiga_Survivor_640x512

The committee has been monitoring the situation closely and it was decided last night that holding any future club meets would simply be impractical and counter-intuitive to the advice given by the government.

We hope everyone understands this decision was taken for the health and safety of all our members. As and when the government give word on public gathers, we shall update the website and hopefully normal service will resume. However until then, all club meetings for 2020 are on hiatus until further notice.

In the mean time while we all go through the country wide lock down, there are still plenty of ways for LAG members to keep connected.
