    Lincs Amiga Group 10th Anniversary (Photos Included)

    I don't think we have any other LAG members here, but if its of any interest to anyone, the Lincs Amiga Group is celebrating its 10th anniversary this coming Saturday .

    We've booked the larger room next door to the room we usually have, and we have AmigaKit attending, as well as Trevor Dickinson and David Pleasance.

    See http://lincsamiga.org.uk for details.

    Should be fun .

    Can you take some pictures of the event for us? Is there an official invitation page or advert? I can post it over on AmiBay.

    I will take some pictures.

    I think some of the more local people are bringing some nice Amiga setups, and there will hopefully be a projector with demos.

    http://lincsamiga.org.uk/ is the official page. Someone (I forget who) made a JPG banner with the same information as the site, but I misplaced it. I think Michael aka Rockape was going to try and put something in the Lincolnshire Echo and in some local shops.

    Everyone had a good time at the LAG Bash. About 23 attended, and there was a nice selection of machines to see and play with, including Amigas as well as other stuff.

    I'll attach a few photos. I wasn't sure whether to take my flashgun with me, but I did, and I'm pleased that I did as the photos taken with the flashgun came out much better than the one's without it.

    Everyone in the hall:

    If memory serves, this is a Mist FPGA machine, emulating an Amiga:

    James' Apple QuickTake 150 digital camera. He took several photos with this and said he'd send me some of them. He'll first have to transfer them via the Apple Serial port to his PowerMac.

    It was well organised, and was well promoted on the various Amiga sites, and among existing LAG members. We had quite a few people travel from quite far afield. The organiser (Rockape) was hoping there might have been 50 or so people turn up, but I though that was a bit too enthusiastic.

    Trevor Dickinson was certainly an interesting person to meet.
