December 2018 Event Report, 2019 Committee and Final Sign-off

Thanks to everyone who made it out on Friday night for our end of year BBQ! It was a diminished crowd due to the confusing circumstances and changes to the format but despite the difficulties I think for those who attended it was a fun night of good food and good company.

Unfortunately we simply didn’t have enough ticket sales to hold the quiz in its planned form, so it will probably be happening next year instead (perhaps as part of a regular monthly meet-up). Those who purchased tickets for Friday’s event have been refunded in full.

As some of you know, due to life and work commitments, I’ll be retiring from most of my ARC duties at the end of this year. Those duties included being the event photographer and maintaining this blog. I will still help out with event set up and graphic design etc when possible. I will also continue to maintain the ARC tumblr account. I’ve really enjoyed my time with the group this year, and I’d like to thank everyone for helping us build it over the last 12 months. For a little town like Adelaide we really punch above our weight!

We are pleased to announce that Matthew Gibb, Jon Peate, and Emmanuel Photakis have joined Nick Tiago and Ewan Wood to form the ARC committee for 2019. Thanks guys! I’m sure you’ll do an awesome job.

This will likely be our final post here. Group announcements from now on will happen exclusively on our Facebook page. We think this is the most efficient way to keep you informed going forward.

So with that I’d like to wish you all a merry Christmas, a wonderful 2019 and happy retrocomputing!

Signing off for now..

Best regards,
