New usergroup to launch at North-East roadshowPublished: 14th Oct 2006, 00:22:50 | Permalink | Printable
Roadshow hits Glasgow, Newcastle next weekA new RISC OS usergroup for the north east of England is set to launch at next week's RISC OS roadshow. Michael Bell hopes to round up RISC OS using punters living in Northumbria, and hold the group's first meeting from his home in Forest Hall, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Michael booked a stand at the forthcoming mini-tour of the north end of the UK in order to promote his new usergroup.
In a bid to reach out to northern users who feel left out of the annual show calendar, the RISCOS Ltd organised roadshow will visit Glasgow on Wednesday, October 18, and Newcastle the day after. On October 21, the roadshow heads south to the South East show in Guildford.
Wed 18 Oct: 3pm to 8pm: Arran Suite, Glasgow Holiday Inn, Stewartfield Way, East Kilbride, G74 5LA. Attending: RISCOS Ltd, CJE Micros, Castle, Liquid Silicon, NAUG.
Thu 19 Oct: 4pm to 8pm: Village Hotel, Newcastle Colbalt Business Park, West Allotment, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, NE27 0BY. Attending: ROL, CJE, Castle, Icon Technology, Qercus, Mathmagical Software.
Free parking at both venues. Email paul (at) riscos (dot) com to arrange to pick up a product from a supplier unable to attend the roadshow, or call 02920 464020.
Michael said: "I will be taking a table at the Acorn Roadshow in Newcastle on October 19, and I will be trying to recruit members for a Northumbria Acorn Users Group, NAUG.
"The first meeting will be held in my house at 8.00 pm on Thursday, November 2, when we will decide how to continue. Remember, the meeting doesn't have to be a mid-week evening."
Michael lives at 10 Cambridge Avenue, Forest Hall, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, NE12 8AR, and you can contact him on 0191 266 6435 or email michael (at) beaverbell (dot) co (dot) uk.
