WROCC prepares Wakefield 2003 show

Get your diaries out

The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club is already gearing up for this year's Wakefield 2003 show by revealing dates, times and other event details. The news was reported first on iconbar.com after the NoughtPointOne team were contacted by Wakefield show co-ordinator Chris Hughes. Our email from Chris must have lost its way but it's not a problem; it appears his email has been reproduced verbatim on iconbar.com.

The show is to be a one day affair and will be held on Saturday, 10th May 2003. The doors will be open from 10am to 4pm and it'll cost five quid to get in (under 16's free if accompanied by an adult). There'll be the usual show theatre and charity stand and the event is sponsored by R-Comp/RCI, Stuart Tyrrell Developments and Spellings Computer Services. Like previous Wakefield shows, it'll be hosted at the Thornes Park Athletic Stadium, this is despite the show being reportedly smaller than previous events.

"The show will again be run and organised by the members and volunteers of the Wakefield RISCOS Computer Club in their spare time", Chris spelt out to iconbar.com. "Please do support both the dedication of these volunteers and the exhibitors attending."

Of course, more details will be released closer to the show. The Wakefield 2003 website is a tad bare at the moment but hey, there's still another four months to go so keep an eye on it.

To come, or not to come... That is the question! Anything stunningly interesting happening this year, or should I go yet again simply for the quality of beer in local pubs?

Well, you'd have to wait for the exhibitors list to be finalised, I guess.

I might just go anyway. The pub up the road serves the best pint of Timothy Taylor's Landlord to be found anywhere ;-)

Is that a scientifically proven fact? I can name a few pubs in Edinburgh that also serve a mean Tim Taylor! -- James Carey

Perhaps they'll release the RiscStation Laptop, which'll be presented by Lord Lucan ;)

In other news, MD will be giving away their 2003/2004 calenders which feature *their* definition of when Christmas is.

Before people slate MD remember the posting said

"The main news is that the Omega is now in production. We SHOULD be shipping very soon, with machines on their way in time for Christmas 2002. I sincerely HOPE this is the case because we can hardly move for boxes!"

I've highlighted the two most important words from the statement. As far as I can see MD have not announced that the Omega is actually shipping, neither did they announce that it would definitely appear by Christmas.
