On March 5, 2020, I made my first visit to the Melbourne Amiga User Group in Moonee Ponds (a western suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia).  Attendance was light, but the members were friendly.  My thanks to Michael Czajka, one of the group leaders, for transporting me, for showing interest, and for discussing Commodore and Amiga matters with me.

In late February, 2020, I visited the Wellington, New Zealand area, and good friend Trevor Dickinson of A-EON showed me his large and well-organized Commodore and Amiga collection.  Here are photos of that visit, along with some other nice photos with him.

(Excuse me for the jumble of photos.  When uploaded, Google puts them out-of-order and gives me limited means of moving them in position.)
