A name that may not be familiar to many RISC OS users is Andrew Oyston, but he’s familiar with RISC OS – as well as listing retro hardware and games as a hobby, he is a contributor to publications such as Pixel Addict magazine, in issue 5 of which his Wakefield 2022 show report was published1.
Andrew will be the guest speaker at the next Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) meeting, which will take place on Wednesday, 5th October, starting at 7:45pm.
This meeting will be a hybrid one, which means that local WROCC members can turn up at their regular venue and everyone else (including non-members) can join in online via the Zoom video conferencing system.
If you can make it in person, you need to head for:
West Yorkshire Sports & Social Club,
Sandal Hall Close,
Off Walton Lane,
There are detailed instructions on how to find it on the Club’s website.
If you can’t make it in person, you need to head for a computer or other device capable of running the Zoom software – which means most modern platforms. You’ll need the access details for the meeting, and these are the same as other regular WROCC meetings in recent months, so if you’ve joined any of those, you should have them. If not, just get in touch in plenty of time, and they’ll be sent your way.
WROCC is funded by memberships, which currently cost just £10.00 per year, discounted to £5.00 for the first year – and is very good value. As well as supporting one of the largest RISC OS user groups in the UK, your tenner gets you free access to the (physical) meetings if you’re able to get to them (non-members are expected to pay a small entry fee), access to their online discussion list, and you’ll become a recipient of the self-titled monthly WROCC newsletter, delivered to your email inbox as a PDF file.
