Kickstart 2: An Amazing Day For Everyone Who Attended

Kickstart 2 was a huge success, with 25% more people than October joining us for a day of all things Amiga. Everyone I’ve spoken too so far had a great time, and we are well on our way towards another sell-out meet in June.

We’ve got a few pics below from the event – more can be found over on our Facebook group and our Discord channel. YouTube creator Chris Thomas, also known as Retronaut, paid us a visit and filmed the meet. His video is now on his channel and I encourage you to go and have a look (click below), like and subscribe.

A Great Day at Zzap Live!

Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who stopped by the Kickstart stand at Zzap Live this past weekend. It was great to see so many people and to talk about our plans for the group. We even met a few Kickstart Originals (members from before hour hiatus) which was wonderful.

We had a double table in the Amiga room at Zzap, where we originally had five machines on display for people to use as part of our promotional efforts, but soon we were down to four after a customised A1200 we had on show decided to malfunction.

Kickstart Nostalgia Ahead of October

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who has bought a ticket for the first Kickstart meet in October – we’ve been absolutely blown away by the enthusiasm for reviving Kickstart and our first meet back is going to be a very busy day with no shortage of people. There are a few table tickets left, so please don’t delay in buying your ticket – we don’t want you to miss out.

The news that Kickstart is coming back has generated some nostalgia. A big thanks to Mike at the Yorkshire Amiga Group, who sent us this 22 year old flyer that one of his members found promoting the last Kickstart Amiga Show we ran – our biggest as well – which we held in Banstead in Surrey as the show had outgrown Ottershaw Village Hall.
