ARMX6 in da house!
If you are in the vicinity of Wakefield tomorrow evening (1st April, 2015) then it might be worth heading towards the West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club for around 7:45pm. That’s when the next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club takes place.
For anyone oop North who didn’t venture daan Saaf towards Feltham and the London Show in October, or into cider country for the Southwest Show in Somerset in February, this will be the first chance to see R-Comp’s new toy, the ARMX6 computer, with which they hope to set a new baseline for RISC OS computers – a stable workhorse that can be considered a true replacement for the RiscPC and IyonixPC.
The venue’s address is:
(A61) Barnsley Road
A map can be found on the WROCC website, and there is ample free car parking at the venue, as well as a bar for refreshments.
The next chance to see the new computer after that will be the Wakefield Show, which will take place on Saturday, 25th April – an interminable three and a half weeks later.
The group charges visitors an entrance fee of £3, but that also includes a printed copy of the Club newsletter in order to tempt you in: Annual membership costs £15 (reduced to £7.50 in the first year) and brings with it free entry to meetings, an annual subscription to the emailed PDF newsletter (with an additional £7 per year bringing it in the post), access to a discussion forum, and the ability to place for sale/wanted adverts both on the club website and in the newsletter.
