Taking place on Wednesday, 3rd May, the next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club will see Rob Sprowson as the guest speaker. The man behind Elesar Ltd and the Titanium motherboard, Rob will be demonstrating a Titanium-based computer and talking about its development.
Elesar also has a growing range of software titles, both home-grown such as CloudFS, and taken over and updated from a previous owner, such as Font Directory Pro (originally from LOOKsystems).
Members of the Club can attend the meeting for free, while non-members who wish to do so will need to stump up £3.00 for the privilege – but that entry fee also gets a printed copy of the Club newsletter, adding value to the visit while at the same time acting as an enticement to join by showing you what you’ll get on a regular basis by doing so.
That membership costs just £15.00 per year, the equivalent of entry into five meetings, but is reduced to just £7.50 in the first year, or two and a half meetings – and as well as free entry into meetings, it also brings with it a PDF newsletter with all the latest news and articles (a printed version is available by post for an annual supplement of £7.00), the ability to place for sale/wanted adverts on the website and in the newsletter, and membership of the WROCC discussion forum.
Returning to the meeting itself, though, it takes place from 7:45pm at:
Sandal Hall Close, Off Walton Lane,
(A61) Barnsley Road,
Refreshments are available from the venue’s bar, and there is plenty of parking – and a map and directions can be found on the WROCC website.
Looking ahead, the group’s June meeting is entitled “Sensors” and their August meeting is provisionally entitled “Recent Developments in RISC OS” – but the subject of July’s meeting is currently still to be announced.
