The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) will be holding a hybrid meeting – that is to say one that is taking place both at their regular venue and online – on Wednesday, 6th April, and there is no single topic. Instead, it will be a ‘pot pourri’ meeting that covers a number of topics – and in this case, at least part of it will include a retrospective look at the Microdigital Omega.
For those in the area wishing to attend in person, the meeting will be held at:
The West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,
Sandal Hall Close, Off Walton Lane,
Directions to the venue by car and public transport are provided on the WROCC website. Access to the meeting is free for members, with a small fee for non-members.
For those a little further away wishing to join in online, you’ll need a computer or other suitable device running the Zoom video conferencing software, and the necessary credentials to get you in. Those details remain the same as they have been for other recent online WROCC meetings, so if you’ve attended one before you already have the details – but if you haven’t, get in touch with the Club in plenty of time and they will be provided to you. There is no charge for accessing the meeting via Zoom for either members or non-members.
The best way to support WROCC, enabling them to continue opening up meetings this way is to join – and that has recently become cheaper. The initial joining fee, covering the first year of membership, is now just £5.00 (reduced from £7.50), and each year’s renewal is then just £10.00 (reduced from £15.00).
As well as free entry into meetings if you’re attending in person, that low price also brings with it access to the WROCC online discussion forum, as well as The WROCC – the club’s newsletter, delivered straight to your inbox as a PDF file.
The Wakefield Club’s own show will this year be taking place on 21st May, though not actually in Wakefield. This year, due to ongoing work at the normal venue running on longer than anticipated, the show will be held at the Cedar Court Hotel in Bradford.
