RONWUG reminder: Wednesday, 20th January

Announcement from Steve Potts, 18th January, 2016.

RONWUG – RISC OS North West User Group – 20th January 2016

RONWUG‘s next meeting is this Wednesday, and we’re hoping there will be no further venue disruption. Work appeared to be almost complete in November, but Plan B is still ready to put into action should the need be required.

Plan B is as follows:

When you arrive at the sports club, look for me personally, or my Blue Ford Focus. If you’re a little later than usual and there’s no sign of of the usual suspects, it may be the case that we’ve invoked Plan-B and headed off to “The Buck” pub, further down Glebelands Road to the west of Finnybank Road.

If you leave Finnybank Road (usual exit) and turn right, The Buck pub is at the crossroads (where Glebelands Road becomes Buck Lane) – the 9th left turn along Glebelands Road. The pub has a large car park – drive past the pub (not taking the 9th left turn) and go around the back.

As usual there will be time for discussion at the beginning and end of the meeting about all things RISC OS related. See you there!

RONWUG Meetings – members, location & times

Meetings are open to all interested in RISC OS computers and there are no membership or entrance fees. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month:

7:20pm for 7:30pm, normally 3rd Wednesday of each month
Trafford Metrovick Rugby & Cricket Club
Finnybank Road
Sale
Cheshire
M33 6LR

There will be RONWUG members at the venue from around 7:20pm, and probably until around 10pm (but you can arrive and leave whenever you like). There is no certainty that the bar in the club will be open, but there is an off license and a Chinese takeaway a few minutes walk away (and a pizza parlour slightly further – do ask if you would like directions to any of these). There should also be tea and coffee available at the venue itself. Admission is free, and everyone is welcome.

Members frequently bring their hardware & software problems to the meetings and there is usually time for such even when we have a formal speaker. Ring Steve on 0845 4 7472 69 to check we have access to any equipment you may need.

The venue is just a few hundred yards from M60 J7, with plentiful free parking right outside, and easy ground floor access. It is on the bus route from Manchester city centre, and is also about fifteen to twenty minutes walk from Dane Road Metro station. Contact us by telephone or email  if you need more details.
