German RISC OS meet

Overnight madness

Herbert zur Nedden found time in his schedule last week to remind us of the yearly German RISC OS meeting/show, held near Hannover. The German RISC OS users are of course only rivalled for their enthusiasm for the platform by their counterparts in The Netherlands, at the bigger Big Ben Show.

The German meet is a less formal affair, with a variety of RISC OS personalities and talks, with the promise of a few surprises. Unlike other RISC OS events, this one continues well into the night, and Herbert tells us that 3am is a typical ending time.

Events lined up include gigabit benchmarking with Iyonix PCs, problem solving sessions and Castle will also be present to offer Iyonix PAL/motherboard modifications. The event will cost you 8 Euro, and for a further very reasonable 25 Euro, you get 3 meals and a place to sleep.

The event takes this weekend on the 9th and 10th of October. Hopefully drobe will have some spying eyes present to report on the event.

It certainly stands out the importance of these RISC OS clubs to support these events. Hopefully RISC OS clubs and regular events may happen on the darker side of the planet? Nice to see the modernisation of our platform taking shape. ;-)

Well, a trip to the SmartGroups of the OS manufacturer will reveal one of the surprises :).

Well, I wonder what the surprises will be too - I was called by one GAG member who booked a place to sleep and told me that he has a surprise to come.

It only costs 25 euro for 3 meals and a place to sleep? It would cost you more for soup and a borrowed sleeping bag over here ! Aha maybe that's the suprise ;-)

Well, it's youth hostel type accomodation and you bring your blankets but despite that it's a good deal ... especially since you won't have much time to hit the sheets anyhow and drinking is not included (apart from tea/coffee for supper/breakfast). And that is not the surprise :-)

Also you should take into account, that the exchange rate between EUR and GBP is just rediculous.

I've attended the GAG meeting 3 times now and I find it's really an informal way to learn new things and refresh some of the contacts in the RO scene. The atmosphere is relaxed and the location is away from the city in a quiet forest rich area.

Also, the beer is good... ;)
