Announcement from… well, me, actually, on 1st July, 2014.
The next meeting of Bristol RISC OS Users (BRU) is Wednesday 9th July, 2014, starting at around 7:00-7:30pm (though some of us may arrive earlier) and continuing until closing time.
Meetings are open to one and all, and are simply a group of people with an interest in RISC OS, Acorn, and anything related, getting together for a drink and a natter. RISC OS users who live in and around Bristol are welcome – as are those who just happen to be in Bristol for whatever reason.
Since the meetings are informal there is never a set topic, but recent news and events tend to be fresh in people’s minds and therefore have a habit of forming a part of the evening’s discussion – with that in mind, the Midlands Show, which takes place just a few days later, on 12th July, is likely to be a topic of conversation.
Something that will definitely be on the agenda for the evening are two new case designs for the Raspberry Pi that I will be bringing along. “Not another Raspberry Pi case!” you might say, but the difference between these cases and others is that there is a very definite RISC OS flavour to them – though at this stage I’m saying no more than that; to find out more, you need to come to the meeting (and if you can’t make that, I will also be bringing them to the Midlands Show).
Meetings take place at the Hope and Anchor pub, 38 Jacobs Wells Road, Bristol, BS8 1DR.
The Hope and Anchor has a wide selection of real ales, as well as soft drinks for those who drive, and serves a good selection of food.
Parking is on-road, and free after 6pm – though Jacobs Wells Road fills up pretty quickly; Hotwells Road, at the foot of the hill and a short walk away, is usually a good bet.
For those coming by bus, look for those heading towards Queens Road/The Triangle/Park Street, which are all just a short walk from Jacobs Wells Road.
Bristol RISC OS Users also has a mailing list that any RISC OS user is welcome to join, local or otherwise.
