Steve Fryatt talks PD software at Wakefield on 4th April

Plus EGM to debate Constitution change to bring it into the 2000s – just as we approach the 2020s!1

The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club will be holding their next meeting on Wednesday, 4th April – the first Wednesday of the month, as usual, though the nature of the meeting will be slightly unusual.

That is because prior to the ‘normal’ meeting, the group will be holding a short Extraordinary General Meeting, the purpose of which is to debate and approve a change to the WROCC Constitution, the wording of which needs to take online banking into account.

Once the EGM is out of the way, though, the normal meeting will feature Steve Fryatt as speaker, bringing the group up to date on the world of free software.

The meeting will kick off at 7:45pm at the regular venue:

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

Parking is free, and there is a bar for refreshments.

Entry to the meeting is free for members, while visitors are expected to pay a £3.00 entrance fee. Annual membership costs £15.00, with a 50% discount for new members in their first year, though, so that first year’s membership is equal to just two and a half meetings – well worth considering, especially with the other benefits of membership:

  • A free PDF newsletter.
  • Free entry into meetings as noted above.
  • Access to the WROCC Internet Discussion Forum.

Don’t forget that later in the month, WROCC will be hosting another event – the Wakefield Acorn & RISC OS Computer Show, which takes place on 21st April at the Cedar Court Hotel.
