Following on from discussions that began about a year ago and which led initially to the creation of a mailing list to bring together RISC OS users in and around the Bristol area, an initial meeting has been announced for those users – so if you are a RISC OS user in that area, the date to note in your diaries is Wednesday 26th January, 7:15pm for 7:30pm, and the venue the Air Balloon pub in Filton, Bristol – which is very easy to find. The following is the announcement that has been posted to comp.sys.acorn.announce:
Bristol Area RISC OS Users meeting – Wed 26 Jan
Happy New Year!
Some of you will be aware of recent discussions on our mailing list. As a result, our first meeting has been arranged as follows.
Theme : Can the old Bristol group be reborn?
Date : Wed 26 Jan 2011
Time : 19:15 for 19:30
Venue : Air Balloon, Filton, Bristol, BS34 7PY (northwest of the A38/A4174 roundabout)
The venue seems readily accessible by all modes of transport.
The meeting will be informal in nature. However (amongst other things) we may chat about:
- RISC OS in 2011 – how can users influence RISCOS Ltd. and RISC OS Open?
- What aspects of “old Acorn thinking” are of value today?
- Can the old Bristol group be reborn?
- Forthcoming shows.
- Meetings programme – visitors, topics, technical assistance.
- Meeting dates, times, venue.
Items (5) and (6) will obviously be subject to the outcome of the discussion under (3).
The meeting is open to all interested in RISC OS computers. Attendees are welcome to bring hardware along but as this is the first meeting, no arrangements are in place for use of a function room or similar. Please don’t expect to be able to plug anything into the mains or to have a clear table to use.
We look forward to seeing you there.
