Wednesday, 10th January sees the first meeting of 2018 for RISC OS Users in the Bristol area. Kicking off at around 7:00-7:30pm and carrying on until closing time, the meeting will take place in The Eldon House pub, which can be found at:
Attendees of previous meetings will note this isn’t the usual venue – but it isn’t far away; Lower Clifton Hill is a short walk up Jacobs Wells Road from the Hope and Anchor, on the left (shortly before the multi-storey car park).
The meetings are entirely informal in nature, and provide a group of like-minded individuals to meet up for a drink and a chat about what’s happening in the RISC OS world and beyond. As such, there is never any set topic, but recent or upcoming events can form a part of the discussion – so expect both Recursion and the Southwest Show to come up in the conversation, both being events taking place during February.
Sometimes members bring along items that may be of interest to the group, and this month Chris Hall expects to bring in a new piece of software he is developing to produce family trees from data held in the standard RISC OS directory tree. The software is still at an early stage, but he hopes to be exhibiting a more fully developed version at the Southwest Show.
Since the meetings are informal and take place in a pub, there is no entry fee and anyone with an interest in RISC OS is welcome to come along. The Eldon House serves a selection of real ales, as well as pizza and other food.
The group also has a mailing list, which anyone is welcome to join, irrespective of whether or not they can make it to the meetings.
