Following on from the 'North of England Beeb User Group' thread I'm pleased to announce the first 'BBC Micro & Acorn User Group NORTH' meetup! We dropped the "Beeb" and replaced it with 'BBC & Acorn' as it's not just for Beebs, I'm sure there will be Atoms, elks and Archies there too!
After discussing the possibilities with Dave we have booked the conference room that was used for August's hackfest at the Premier Inn Halifax South - http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/HALPTI/halifax-south
We have the room from 8am - 10pm on Saturday the 22nd of November.
We're looking for £12 per attendee to contribute to the cost of the conference room and hire of additional tables (Arcadian and I will cover any shortfall) and if there's any cash leftover it'll go towards soft drinks/snacks for the weekend or possibly booking the room for Sunday morning if there is interest. That's in addition to your own individual cost of a hotel room for one or two nights if you want to stay.
The meeting will be pretty informal and freeform though I do plan to have a few game challenges on the go as well as giving the latest homebrew games from Tricky and hopefully myself a thourough playtest. Dave also mentioned bringing some blank tapes and a cassette duplicator with him to maybe get a small production line set up for RetroSoftware releases! Dave will be hiring 10 tables so there should be room for a lot of interesting things to be done so please let me know in this thread if you will be bringing something or if there is something in particular you'd like to see.
There are limited spaces available so please post in this thread and send me a direct PM/email to check availability and have your name added to the list.
Update: One person has pulled out so there is a space up for grabs if you want it.
