June, 2018 - Bob, Kevin, Jim, Don Safer attended. July will be the last meeting for Don who's moving to Florida. Discussed the upcoming Vintage Computer Festival West for 2018, August 4-5.

December, 2017 - Bob, Robbie, Phil, Kevin, Jim and Bill were in attendance. Our door prize was a Lenovo Thinkpad, won by Jim. It's been a great year with our Vintage Computer Festival West booth in August and our massive upload of past newsletters to the Internet Archive.

Kevin brought a troubled Atari floppy drive and an Atari 1200 (I think, could have been an 800XL). Garrett had several Atari printed circuit boards, some experimental some pre-production... also an SIO to serial box. More to come, next month. Discussion about the VCFW dinner Kevin attended after the Aug. 5th session with Atari luminaries. At the 2016 VCFW, no Atari presence, this year we arrived & our booth earned two 1st place ribbons.

August 5-6, 2017 SLCC Booth at the Vintage Computer Festival, West (VCFW) - Kevin, Bob, Robbie and Bill worked booth GX3 and generated a lot of Atari and SLCC enthusiasm at the 2017 VCFW in Mountain View, California, on the 2nd floor of the Computer History Museum. Kevin brought 16 bit working Atari computers and Bob brought working 8 bit Atari machines, all arranged in our three table booth. View photos taken at the VCFW by Kevin, Robbie and Bill. This is the closest thing we've had to a Computer Faire in a long time! Thank you so much, Kevin Lund for organizing this.

August, 2017 - Kevin, Bob, Robbie, Jim, Bill and for his first time, Edison attended. He has a background from college days, programming in 6502 Assembler. We discussed details of the VCF West coming up this weekend, August 5-6. We will have a two table booth at Booth GX3 displaying 8 and 16 bit computers. This is being organized by Kevin Lund and Bob Woolley. Kevin recently uploaded SLCC Journal newsletters from 1984 to 2000 and a number of newsletters from our "Newsletter Exchange Program", to the Internet Archive. Our Newsletter Archive page might make sorting through all the newsletters, a little bit easier.

June, 2017 - Kevin, Jim, Robbie and Bill attended. Kevin provided a boatload of scanned Atari User Group Newsletters, almost 1,000 of them. A third of them, newsletters exchanged with us by other groups, have been uploaded to the Internet Archive ( as a test. Kevin is uploading as "Kevin Lund with SLCC". Here is a link.... Kevin's recent uploads.

May, 2017 - Bob, Kevin, Robbie, Chris, Kyle (Chris' son) and Bill attended. Discussed our two booths at the upcoming Vintage Computer Festival West, Aug 5-6, 2017. We're a little burned out after dealing with all the OCR'ed SLCC newsletters, but should be back to normal next month. Robbie brought a couple items (see Facebook page) including an Atari ST.

April, 2017 - Kevin, Robbie, Jim and Bill attended and received the balance of scanned SLCC Newsletters. Included is the 1985, 70-page "Special Edition" Newsletter

March, 2017 - Scanned copies of 1984 through 2000 SLCC newsletters were brought by Kevin. Some missing hard-copy issues and disks of the month were brought in for copying and re-distribution next month. About half of the 1984-1990 newsletters were OCR'ed (searchable PDFs) so we're trying to OCR the rest of them for next month.

February, 2017 - Robbie heard from Library that there was no power, so he advised the group and we will reconvene, same time, same place next month.
