Mike Cook at Wakefield meeting – 3rd February

On the menu: Raspberry Pi and WROCC cakes!

WROCC logoThe next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club takes place on 3rd February, at 7:45pm, and this month’s special guest is none other than Mike Cook.

RISC OS (and Acorn) users of old will remember the name Mike Cook from his “Body Building” series in the Micro User. The series started out in the BBC Micro days, and each article would guide the reader through building a small electronic device that could be connected to the computer. That series has now morphed into a Raspberry Pi-based one called “Mike’s Pi Bakery”, and appears in The MagPi magazine.

This is Mike’s first visit to the group in over a year, and that series is just one of the topics he will be discussing with members, along with the RISC OS coverage in his Raspberry Pi Projects for Dummies book.

So, if you’re a member and within shouting distance of Wakefield, where do you want to be on Wednesday evening? A good bet – because it’s where the meetings are held – would be:

West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,
Sandall Hall Close (off Walton Lane),
(A61) Barnsley Road,
Sandal,
Wakefield,
WF2 6ER.

Meetings are free for fully paid-up memebers, while non-members are charged a modest admission fee of £3.00. Annual membership costs just £15.00, and is discounted to £7.50 for the first year – so for anyone able to attend five or more meetings (er… discounted to two and a half meetings for the first year), an annual membership makes a lot of sense.

Other benefits of that annual membership include a PDF version of the newsletter – with the option of a printed version available for an additional £7.00 per year, the ability to place for sale/wanted adverts in the newsletter, access to the WROCC forum and, via the members only section of the website, information, links and downloads relating to previous meetings.
