As if you'd forgotten about it

Show news logoThe Midlands RISC OS show returns this month, a year after the event was dropped due to lack of interest from exhibitors. The show is set to take place on November 25, in the Featherstone and Hilton Conference and Community Centre, located outside Wolverhampton. The event was cancelled in 2003 after its venue was devastated by a fire, and the 2004 show was one of the first events to be held at the rebuilt National Motorcycle Museum.

The Midlands 2006 organisers, The ARM Club, are charging 40 quid a stand. The show opens between 10am and 4pm, and entrance costs four quid for adults.

• The newly formed RISC OS North East usergroup held their first meeting in Newcastle. Their next gathering is set for February 14, 2007, at the home of Michael Bell. To contact him, email michael (at) beaverbell (dot) co (dot) uk.

I do not quite agree with your claim that last year's show was dropped due to "lack of interest from exhibitors". It sounds as if a show had been announced and not enough exhibitors had been willing to book and the show was thus cancelled, which is not what happened. What happened was that the organisers felt that the high cost of the traditional venue would not have allowed a cost effective show with the number of expected exhibitors, so they decided to look for an alternative venue, which they could not find.

In any case, I am glad they have decided to run the show again. So, many thanks to the ARM club for the excellent shows they have organised in the past and I am happy to be at the Midlands show again this year!
