News   News : New Southern California Amiga and PPC User Group Announced!
   posted by realize on 6-May-2007 20:38:46 (3275 reads)
Sunday May 06, 2007

Magnetic Systems, a long time Amiga dealer, is pleased to announce the forming of a New Amiga User Group! The Southern California Amiga and PowerPC User Group. (SCAPUG) This group is devoted to support of Classic Amigas, Next Gen PPC Amigas like Pegasos and Amiga 1, as well as Linux PPC users! We have a fantastic location for meetings which is the Santa Monica Public Library..



Santa Monica Public Library

Its a lovely 7 million dollar facility, newly built and right by the ocean! We will rent on of the professional meeting rooms for the event, for a special price of $50. this includes a professional presentation system with projector and audio, as well as a white board and excellent seating.. The costs will come out of member dues. there is also a very nice outdoor cafe on the grounds with great food at good prices. Our meetings will be the first Saturday of the month starting in June.

All users are welcome and there will be much fun and help for new Amiga people as well as old! We will focus on demos of Amiga hardware and software with tutorials and upgrade/repair sessions. This is a must attend for all Amiga and PPC fanatics. No red blue nonsense, so OS4, Morphos, Classic, Linux PPC users all welcome! We will do demos of morphos, Os4, old school Amiga, Ubuntu PPC, Gentoo and more!

Please PM me and/or reply on this thread to show interest in this group, questions, or membership details. It is easily reached via the Pacific Coast highway and I-10. Perfect for users in the Los Angeles/San Diego region. Cant wait to see you there.

Long Live Amiga.

I was just thinking the same thing Ray. It's good to see someone initiate a new group here on the US side.

Good luck with the group guys.

That's great, count me in, it's only 3 miles from my place!

It will be my first time too... 20 years later and I still have never been to a UG meeting...

Info sent by PM.

It may take a few weeks to spread the word and attract current and old amiga users.

I might be able to dig a few out from my neighborhood and at the Digital Domain studio. If not members at first, they might want to come by out of curiosity at least.

Also, you can put free ads for UG meetings in the Recycler or LA Time (can't remember which one has a section for this stuff)

And Craig's list maybe?

This is the only time I almost wished I lived in Southern California! Still, it's only 750 miles away. Maybe I'll zip over there sometime.

That's great news! I'll have to come by.

I was trying to start up a Los Angeles area user group awhile back but got so frustrated at the "situation" of the Amiga scene that I just stopped bothering. Plus, I got really busy with my film work.

Good Luck Tom your a long way from NY. Who knows Amiga might get there stuff together enough and I could end up seeing you at AmiWest. I do miss QUAG and Lou. It would be nice to see someone pick up the torch for the Queens, NY group again. How many local Amiga fans have you heard from willing to come?
