Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to W
orkakefield we go!
We are once again rapidly approaching the time when the attention of the RISC OS community falls fairly and squarely upon Wakefield, with “the North’s premier RISC OS show” taking place this coming Saturday, April 20th.
The show is now in its 18th year, and once again takes place at The Cedar Court Hotel, Deby Dale Road, Calder Grove, Wakefield, WF4 3QZ – the show’s original venue, before it moved to locations such as Thornes Park Athletics Stadium.
Visitors can gain entry to the show from 10:30am until 4:00pm for a mere £5 (with free admission for children under 12 who are accompanied by an adult) and, once inside, there is the chance to win a brand new Raspberry Pi Model B computer, including a clear case, in a prize draw. Entry to the draw will cost £1, and is limited to one entry per person – visit the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC – the show’s organisers) stand for more details and the terms and conditions.
Expected highlights of the show include Aemulor for the Raspberry Pi, NetSurf 3.0, new computers from R-Comp, and much more. The full list of exhibitors can be found on the show website, along with a floor plan for the event.
Sadly, Jim Nagel of Archive Magazine will be unable to attend the show due to unforseen circumstances. However, those of you looking to renew your subscriptions at Wakefield will (hopefully) still be able to do so by visiting me on the Soft Rock Software stand.
