Amiga User GroupsScottish Amiga Users Group (28 Members)

Not so far from Ireland, there is another Amiga Users Group.

This group is made for friendly Amiga-related chat for Amiga fans in Scotland and to help organize Amiga gatherings in Scotland for Amiga gaming and even the odd pint. It is also nice to see that there is some Amiga movement in Scotland, United Kingdom. It wasn’t expected from my side to see such small but interesting Amiga user group over there.

For now this Amiga User Group only got 28 members, but with Vampire V4, A1222 Tabor and Amy board getting released. Things is moving and that might give this Amiga User Group in Scotland a push forward for sure.

In this group the people send questions and gets help. Smaller than the one in Ireland, but it seems to be active even though the posts isn’t frequent in the Facebook group at least.
