Seattle Commodore Computer Club: Coming Soon

by intric8 Wed Apr 18, 2018 3:09 pm

Hey everyone,

After meeting mattsoft here in Seattle a few times and once down in Portland, I couldn't take it anymore. It's time to make a real Commodore club like back in the day. I'm still working out the details on the venue, but I think it's going to work out one way or the other.

The name I came up with is the Seattle Commodore Computer Club. Or, pronounced "Sea-sea-sea-sea". ;)
I've got a quickie site up:
sea-ccc.org

This will give a few of us in the area the opportunity to meet in person on a semi-regular basis. Up to this point, Matt and I would stand out in my office parking lot and talk for an hour or so, often in the cold and/or rain. No more. We always wanted to talk more, but ... you know. Work.

At the SEA-CCC events we'll discuss scene news, mods, hacks, games, demo hardware ... whatever. 8-bits and 16-bits welcome (and non C= too).

And if you're not around Seattle but happen to be visiting, do let us know either here on AmigaLove or over on sea-ccc.org. If there's enough lead time we might be able to get you into a meet-up we have planned, or create a custom one on the fly, which would be awesome.

More on this soon.

Great work getting this off the ground Intric8! I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes. Who knows, maybe I can make it over from Victoria sometime :)

OMG Alterus, if you are able to make it down... we'd do a solid C64 hour (or two!) in your honor. It wouldn't be hard - we all adore 64. Make it so, my friend. I'll be sure to keep you up-to-date with future event dates. :)

Which makes sense since C64 is like respecting your Elders around these parts ;)

It was just me and Eric but we represented the 64 and Amiga (and even Apple). A couple of photos here: http://www.sea-ccc.org/blog/

For the next meeting, I'm planning to bring my Mega ST 2 and Amiga 1000 and link them with a null modem cable for some hot head-to-head cross platform multiplayer action of Stunt Car Racer and Lotus 2!
