Hi all,

It's been quiet here for a very long time, but there is a meet-up happening
soon, on 18th May in Leicester.  This is the Facebook-post:
I know some of you are not on Facebook, so this is a public service.  The
announcement follows verbatim below.


SAM-AZING 2024 (better title still not been suggested).
*True at time of writing, but due to various distractions, it's now one day
less. Anyway, the point still stands - get your train tickets booked, pump
up your bike tyres, ask your mum for a lift, stop worrying about the League
One play off final - it won't happen.
A reminder of all the details below. Get it booked in - it'd be great to
see the thriving SAM community in its full glory. We were probably never
thriving, but relatively speaking....
Date: Saturday 18th May 2024
Location: Retro Computer Museum, Leicester, LE4 9HA (Unit Q)
Time: 12:30pm to 5:30pm
Entry fee: £8.50
There'll be drinks at the nearby Willow pub afterwards and then no doubt
some people will find a curry before catching their trains home. Plenty of
parking on site for those driving.
Andy and Dean have kindly agreed we can use their fabulous venue for this
event, so the only cost is the standard entry fee for those to pay on the
day when they arrive. They have no less than 3 SAMs, so there'll be plenty
on show. I may have to think up a tournament or two....
I think there'll be space if anyone does want to bring anything to set up
and show off, but just remember a few more SAM Coupé machines and there'll
be more value there (according to eBay) than in the Bank of England vaults.
And finally, try and remember it's been decades since we last saw each
other, and some of us have bad memories, so make sure you know your speech
"Hello, I'm Ian Doodar, writer of Ball Attack and Planet of the Crisps".
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
