That one time per year when non-members are definitely not welcome!

It’s the time of year when the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club holds their Annual General Meeting, at which they deal with group administrative issues, such as electing their committee for the year ahead, and discuss the future of the club and how it is run. Unlike the other meetings held throughout the year, therefore, this one is for members only.

For members who wish to attend (and non-members to avoid) the time and place to be (or not, as appropriate) is Monday, 3rd January, 2018, with a 7:45pm start-time, at the West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club, Sandal Hall Close, Off Walton Lane, Wakefield, WF2 6ER.

Normal service will resume from the next meeting again, which takes place on 7th February, with Tom Williamson from Ident Computer scheduled to be the guest speaker.
