Add you favorite old User Groups...

Recommended Posts

I believe the only one I ever attended was AUGI, but I think there were some other ones around here for a while.

 

IIRC, AUGI stood for Atari User's Group of Indianapolis.  Larry might be able to help me with that one.

SPACE. Saint Paul Atari Computer Enthusiasts... :)

 

Got into the scene in the mid/late-80s... much to my surprise, they're still around. Might go back one day. I don't recognize all the people's names, but after 30 years (zoiks!) it's not much of a surprise to have some turnover...

AUGI - the Atari Users' Group of Ireland.  Met at Powers' Hotel (now the Kildare Street Hotel) on Kildare Street in the middle of Dublin once a month.  At its height, there were probably around 30 regulars.  Meetings were a mix of copyfests, gaming, and technical stuff.  Lots of 8-bit and ST presence, though not a ton of crossover between the two groups; a few of us were in both camps.

 

Attended from about 1985 to around 1990, at which point girls had taken a lot of my interest away from computers.  Don't think the group survived past about 1992 or so.

NOSAUG , North of Scotland Atari User Group.

 

Stuart Murray used to run it. He did a release with just the magazine, one with a diskette and another also which was cassette based.

 

I regularly used to be the ONLY person that got the cassette version.

 

All my cassettes stopped working years ago and got thrown out after being left in a garage too long.

LBACE - Long Beach Atari Computer Enthusiasts

 

Long Beach, CA - I was a member (and the president) for the last few years before the ST came out and for a few years past that.  Pretty sure it died off when Atari stopped being carried in stores.  We weren't affiliated with a store or anything, just people who loved our Atari computers.

Yep.  AUGI was the main one in the Indy area.  Another was WICA -- West Indy Computer Alliance.  Despite the name, Atari only.  WICA had a lot of cash on hand in the treasury, and voted to purchase a copy of the CHAOS library.  Probably close to 100 disks.
