Cambridge RISC OS meet up

Be there, or be elsewhere

Cambridge, UK -- Drobe assistant editor Peter Naulls has organised a pub meet for RISC OS users past and present, which will take place on the 27th (this Saturday).

The gathering will take place in Cambridge, the birth place of the Acorn era and still home to many users and ex-users who have had their lives in some way touched by the Green Nut.

RISC OS, Acorn users, Acorn employees and ARM employees past and present are welcome to make an appearance. The event's taking place at The Regal (a Weatherspoon's establishment), which is located in the centre of Cambridge on Regent
Street - 10 mins walk from the train station. I've been there before, it's great.

Peter says, "I'll be there from around midday, with a move to as yet to be decided food establishment in the evening. There is no set agenda - this is a social event, but feel free to bring any Acorn/RISC OS items of interest you may have to show and discuss.

"You're welcome to email me and say that you're coming so I have an idea who'll be there - if not, then I'll see you when you turn up. Mobile number available upon request if you'd like to inform me of your where/whenabouts on the day."

Despite this article turning up late in the week, Peter first announced the meet up last Thursday. A number of people have signed up, so don't be shy.

Very good initiative Peter, I expect this raises some interesting perpectives on both past and present.

The more the merrier. It's all afternoon, so feel free to turn up at any time that's most suitable for you.

What a neat idea. I should see if there is any interest here for a Saturday afternoon meet/workshop (BYO computer?), something for the Xmas holidays. Are there many user groups in the UK running regular workshop meets (with their computers) ?

Sawadee: In the UK, it's difficult to find interest in such meets more than once a month for a particular area.

Alas! I'm shooting a short film this weekend. More notice next time and I'll be there. Oh, and if anyone in Cambridge has got PRMs I'd be eternally grateful.

In reply to dgs:

I was actually thinking of 2 or possibly 3 per year if there was interest. Since the mid to later '90s, I have not seen or heard of such meetings with Acorn/RISC OS users in NZ.

Although I have not established much contact with others until about 6 months ago when I was able to get my RO on the net, the phone and peronal contacts with our only local Auckland RO suppliers informed me of the quieter recent years.

I just get the impression here on Drobe that it seems to be a more regular occurrance for RISC OS users to meet up with each other personally in small groups and in local clubs?
