It’s not like they’re buses or anything, but…

Three user group meetings will be taking place over the next few days, with the first of the three – RONWUG – taking place tonight. The second will be the MUG meeting on Saturday, and the third the ROUGOL meeting on Monday. So, a quick look at all three in that order:

RONWUG – RISC OS Northwest User Group

The group usually meets at the Trafford Metrovick Rugby and Cricket Club from around 7:20-7:30pm on the third Wednesday of each month, which this month is the 16th – tonight. There are no membership or entrance fees, and anyone with an interest in RISC OS can come along.

There should be members at the venue from around 7:20pm until around 10:00pm, the address of which is:

Trafford Metrovick Rugby and Cricket Club,
Finnybank Road,
M33 6LR

There is a bar at the club, but there is no certainty that it will be open – but there is an off licence and Chinese takeaway a few minutes walk away, and a pizza parlour a little further.

MUG – Midlands User Group

The Midlands User Group meets on the third Saturday of every other month, with Saturday, 19th March being the next meeting, which will take place at around 2:00pm at:

The Methodist Church Hall,
B60 1BL

This month, the group has Rob Sprowson of Elesar Ltd as a guest speaker, and he will be talking about how Elesar and the Titanium motherboard came about, as well as his contributions to RISC OS, and other things.

There is a small entrance fee payable to cover costs, and refreshments will be available.

ROUGOL – RISC OS User Group of London

The third and final meeting of the trio will take place in London on Monday, 21st March. ROUGOL meets on the third Monday every month, starting from around 7:45pm at:

The Blue-Eyed Maid (upstairs in the restaurant),
173 Borough High Street,
SE1 1HR.

This month’s guest speaker is Terry Swanborough of MB Electronics, who will be talking about RiscPCB – an application he wrote for use in his company and then made freely available for others to use. The software is used for designing printed circuit boards with up to eight layers, using a library of components, with the option to export designs as GERBER files or in Draw format.

Admittance to the meetings are free, with everyone welcome. The venue is situated between London Bridge and Borough tube stations, a short walk from each. and there is ample cycle parking. Those coming by car should take into account that this is central London, and should make allowances for driving and parking there.
