Drag ‘n Drop yourself into a WROCC meeting with Chris Dewhurst

The next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) will take place on Wednesday, 4th May, and the guest speaker will be the editor of on-off-on-off-under-new-management Drag ‘n Drop magazine, Chris Dewhurst, with a talk entitled Making RISC OS accessible with Drag ‘n Drop.

Chris will offer a brief history of the magazine, which – spoiler alert – was originally launched by Paul Stewart in 2009, and taken over in 2012 to avoid it being put to rest. He will also cover his own RISC OS background, and then go on to talk about his latest publication, The Application Tutorial and Listings Book.

The meeting will be held online, starting at 7:45pm, and anyone with an interest is welcome to join – you do not need to be a member of the Club. What you do need, however, is a computer or other device on which you can run the Zoom client software, since that’s the system being used for the meeting. You will also need the meeting link and password, and if you’ve attended any other virtual WROCC meetings in recent months they remain the same – but if not, simply contact them in plenty of time and you will receive the necessary details by email.

Although joining the Club isn’t necessary to attend the meeting, it is worth doing so anyway. It costs just £5.00 to join, which covers your first year, with an annual renewal rate of just £10.00 thereafter, and in return for that you get:

  • Free entry into physical meetings (non-members pay a small entry fee).
  • Access to the Club’s email discussion list.
  • A monthly newsletter delivered to your door email inbox.

The Club also organises the Wakefield Show, which due to unforeseen circumstances hasn’t taken place in its normal form for a couple of years – but is this year going ahead, albeit a little later than usual and somewhere different. The show will take at the Cedar Court Hotel in Bradford on Saturday, 21st May, which is now less than three weeks away – see you there!
