Chicago TI User Group

"A Super User Group" - The Oldest TI-99/4A User Group in the United States

In September 1980, the Chicago TI User Group ("CTIUG") was formed by Jerry Strauss as one of the first TI-99 User Groups in the United States and he became its first President. The CTIUG continues to meet monthly except during the summer months. Over the years since the CTIUG founding, the user group had many accomplishments including their annual Chicago TI International World Faire ("Faire"), the oldest and longest running TI fair in the world. The Faire has always been a very popular venue among TI-99/4A vendors from all over the world and remains so to this day. The CTIUG had many other accomplishments including:

                                                 Hardware Reprints Manual assembled by Nick Iacovelli. (1988)

                                                 TI-Writer Supplement Manual by Ernest Pergrem. (1989)
