SWAG #12 – Book your tickets now

Please be aware that there is a price increase to £10. This is to cover Covid related supplies and any venue / food and drink prices increases. The booking system is limited to book a maximum of four people, as we get closer to the meet, we will be following current government and council guidelines regarding the use of the venue.

Please be aware that there is filming that does go on at our meets, we have been part of DVD documentaries, YouTube and Twitch channels which helps increase our exposure. Please let a SWAG team member know if you have a problem with this.

If you are bringing anything that might be of interest, unique or new, then please contact the SWAG team please let them know, we do enjoy seeing the Amiga’s being used in different ways.

A SWAG meeting is for YOU, this is a meet that is purposely for showing off your Amiga warez, it is not for traders.  If you wish to sell with us, then you need to contact us and talk to us about our more exclusive trader event ‘Workbench 2022’ which we are hoping to reschedule around May.

Please remember Children ARE FREE, use a SEAT booking to reserve them, when booking please write their names in the Notes section of the booking and any information we might need to know

For anyone booking a hotel, we are currently looking around for somewhere to sleep, we will follow up on that ASAP and post about it on social media/website.

MEETING LAYOUT

SWAG #12 - February 2022

Booking is closed.

SWAG#12: Let’s do this again

SWAG 12

The Last meet in September was a fantastic success of getting us back on the road, we had about 90% of the turnout and was thankful for everyone coming out.  Now, we had been preparing a lot to get ready for the next installment of Workbench but sadly we had to put that on hold and we are now going to try and repeat what we did in September.  

We also did ask on social media about pricing increases and also tried to encourage people to bring their own tables to help us get more into the hall.  We will announce tomorrow at 8PM what is happening with pricing and the booking page will go live.  

If you have missed the meet last time due to illness, then we are sorry that you couldn’t make it and the ticket was unfortunately non-refundable (we have to book food etc), however as a gesture of goodwill, we will attempt to contact you tonight or Saturday and I will reserve your previous position until Monday and ask for a payment.

Ticket prices are currently being discussed, we will be ready tomorrow at 8pm.  We are looking forward to another meeting depending on how the pandemic conditions unfold, if we are forced to cancel then you will all be refunded.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed it goes ahead and hopefully in the summer we can have the planned Workbench 2022 too.

The Booking Page will open on Saturday the 8th of Jan 20:00 .

UPDATED: Announcing Workbench 2022

UPDATED: Important Workbench 2022 Announcement!

The bad news…After much consideration, the SWAG committee have decided to postpone the Workbench 2022 event which was due to take place on Saturday 5th of February. We can’t be certain what restrictions will be in place by the start of next month and we don’t want to organise a massive event if we have to cancel it or if, due to rising infection rates, a large number of guests and attendees are unable to be there.The good news…We will still be going ahead with a SWAG meet on Saturday 5th February, but it will be a standard meet with the same format as the one we had last September. Turn up, set your kit up and meet fellow Amiga users. There will be no guest speakers or raffle.Workbench 2022 is NOT cancelled. We are looking to hold Workbench 2022 in May – actual date to be confirmed. With a May date the weather will be better – we’ll be able to ventilate the room better and by that point the number of COVID cases should have dropped significantly.Back to our February 5th meet (SWAG #12)…Can you give us a rough idea if you’re likely to attend the February meet, please? We just want to make sure the interest is there. PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO ATTEND.

Tickets to SWAG #12 will be available from 8pm on 8th January.

Many thanks for your support and patience!

Robert

Previous announcement below:-

We had a great SWAG meet to finish off 2021, not everyone could make it but we did sell out within a few hours which means that you guys want more.  So we had to hold back this announcement and we have been working with Amiga Ireland to make sure our dates didn’t clash. We can now officially reveal that February 5th will be Workbench 2022, for this year we are breaking away from our regular pattern to bring you a packed Saturday of fun, raffles, tournaments, presentations, sellers and everything you love about the Amiga.  

We can also announce now that we have been sponsored by WavemStudios, Stephen Fletcher originally started a Kickstarter for the Amiga 2020 documentary and after a few revisions of content, he has now chosen a new name Alive and Kicking, we have been working with him recording footage for the last few SWAG meetups and now pleased to have him as the show’s main sponsor.  Stephen will also be doing a short presentation.

Further announcements will be made throughout the next few months. We are looking forward once again to bringing you Workbench at Dodington Parish Hall in February.  

The SWAG Committee.
