Does anyone know what has become of the Toronto Atari Federation? The website is hopelessly out of date and I'm wondering if they still meet?

I think they are defunct. I am trying to revive the Hamilton Burlington Oakville Atari Users Group 8-bit club

I was a member of TAF during the early eighties, and I believe they no longer meet because attendance was poor. The website is running; however, I have not noticed any activity on that page for years. I am not sure why the page is still active: "it just is".

 

I often reflect about the early years at TAF, and I enjoyed meeting with members discussing ATARI and its future. The meetings were informative and sometimes associates of ATARI would drop by and give us the scoop of the up and coming things from ATARI. It's really all a blur right now, but I did remember enjoying going to the meetings.

 

It would be really great to have ATARI 8 bit user groups, once again, in the Toronto area district. I hear ATARI is still strong it POLAND.

 

It's too bad Jack couldn't keep ATARI  computers competitive in the North American market. Things would of been different if they did.

 

Some rich investor needs to buy ATARI and bring it back to its glory: "That would be great!"

I'd be interested in meetings somewhere in the GTA, though honestly could probably only make them regularly if they were annual.

I'd even be willing to contribute group presentations on 2600 or 7800 homebrew development, if people were interested.

I thought there were some swap meets organized from some of the guys at cgcc.ca in that GTA or Kitchener area.
