@Mikey_C

Sounds frickin' awesome! If I wasn't going to be somewhere up Alaska way on honeymoon, I'd have definitely been up for paying through the nose to get to England just for this!

I hope it's even better next year, so I won't have missed out on too much!

Alaska for a honeymoon? But it's freezing up there, you may get snowed in and not be able to go anywhere on your honeymoon and have to stay indoors by a log fire.....

...Oh, wait.....

...we're on a cruise ship, so I doubt they'd let us have a log fire... nice idea, though!

Full details on Booking the fix, booking a table for bring and buy, or reserving a space if you are a dealer, can be found on the Big Bash website.

Bit of an erroneous statement there dont you think. I held a successfull show earlier in the year, so its not the only Amiga show in the UK, neither is it the only Amiga event in the UK since theres a few active usergroups around meeting regulally, which imo at least class as an event

@Daz

Its the 3rd big bash the only UK event at the moment that puts on show after show.
As you know we put them on and try and break even. Its a social event more than anything these days and if each of the organisers is out of pocket slightly on break even costs who cares we had a few beers, made some new friends and weve been able to chat Amiga with out fear of the geek monster getting us.
As with out the gamble shows like yours and bb3 wouldn't exist.
Hopefully people have enjoyed the day out made some new friends and learnt a thing or two, possibly putting a bit of cash in the odd dealers pocket that all help keep that boing ball rolling.

I see you are advertising fixes for the SE board... I wasn't aware this fix was available yet. What is fixed?

Does the fix enable me to use USB memory devices?

Definately planning to get them done...

@Carl

Im not nocking the effort invovled, just pointing out the inaccuracy of the statement. Its a bit perhaps not hurtfull but along those lines that the effort involved in other amiga events throughout the country got overlooked when writing the statement thats all.

It's Carl's domain and fasthost's are the registrars. I should imagine Carl could stick a redirect up or point the name servers to ours and we will add it to our records.
