Talk about last minute planning

Show news motifThe organisers for the annual RISC OS south west show have confirmed that there will be an event early next year. Scheduled for Saturday February 18th 2006, the show will take place at the usual venue of The Webbington Hotel in north Somerset, UK. We've learnt that there should be the usual gathering of exhibitors, plus theatre presentations and the charity stand.

Show supremo John Stonier commented, "Please support the show once again and show us that the RISC OS scene is very much alive."

They are well organised.

Hope they have a good show.

That's great news John, I'm sure the WAUG will be able to support the show again.

I'm going to do my best to be there, as a relatively recent returnee to the RISC scene . . .

Ah, and next year I might actually make it, as it doesn't clash with the Sound & Vision show in Bristol (the last 2-3 years it's been the same weekend).

Have to say though, a hi-fi show is much more interesting than a computer show, regardless of what platform or OS is featured...

Each to their own . . . personally I disagree though, but wouldn't it be a boring world if we all had the same views?

To be honest I tend to go to Acorn/RISC OS shows now purely for the social side. It's always nice at Wakefield for example to meet up with people I probably haven't seen for a year, so fingers crossed I'll be able to get to the South-West show this time around.

Course, knowing my luck I'll probably be away that weekend, in London or something! Will try and keep that weekend free though so I can stick my head in.

For the last two years, I've gone to the Hi-Fi Show on the Friday, but if that wasn't possible there was always the Sunday.

This year I ended up going to the hi-fi show all 3 days running (and ended up buying a Chord Cobra II interconnect for 25, normally 55). Was considering going to the SW show, but just ended up going to the hi-fi show again on the Saturday instead.

However, unless they move either show next year, it's not going to clash. So I'll try and be at that one, on the basis that it's the one closest to me and although I don't really use RISC OS any more (except for scanning documents) it's nice to catch up with some old faces.
