RISC OS South West Show Saturday 22nd February 2020

Post by RobC » Tue Jan 07, 2020 5:53 pm

I've just had an email from Richard Brown to confirm that this year's RISC OS South West Show will be held at the Arnos Manor Hotel, Bristol on Saturday, 22nd of February.

Last year, a few of us 8-bit users met up and had a stand. Does anyone fancy doing the same this year? I'll probably take one or two Beebs running VideoNuLA stuff but would welcome some company.

Richard would like to know exhibitor numbers asap so please respond if you'd like to have (or share) a stand.

I have nothing to exhibit, but would be interested in coming down for the day if there's some 8bit activity going on.

I could come along. Bristol isn't rally all that far from Oxford...

I'd probably bring a B perhaps with my Bad Apple demo. Or i could bring a Master for some variety if you're bringing Bs Rob?

Great - I can bring my VideoNuLA programming kit if we don't get round to updating yours sooner.

I'll probably bring a B and a M128 so feel free to bring whatever you want. I'm sure there'll be lots of interest in your Bad Apple setup.

I'm half thinking about bringing my Penman Plotter as the Valiant got a bit of interest last year...

I'm still in negotiations with the "boss" and daughter.
If I am allowd to come, I would probably bring a selection (inc compact and atom) and see what fits.
Sorry this doesn't help with space planning.

I'll be at the SW Show representing ROUGOL and generally encouraging everyone to visit their local user group (or set one up!).

What time do we need to be there to set up Rob? Do you know how much space we have - I'm wondering what to bring?

Not had a response from Richard yet - I'll mail him tonight.

So, I've heard back from Richard. We've got two tables - last year each table was big enough to hold a couple of machines with monitors etc.

I'll only be bringing one M128 so there should be enough space for three other setups.

The room will definitely be available from 9am but may be available earlier if Richard is around. I'll probably be getting there for 9 as I have to drop my daughter off in Bristol at 8.

The show opens at 10.30 for those wishing to come along as visitors.

Wow i’ve only just seen this.
Was this advertised on facebook?
I’ll try and pop by for a look and chat as I live in Bristol about 10 minutes away. Unfortunately i’m working in the morning/part afternoon so i’ll get there when/if i can.
Cheers
Matt

I couldn't see a Facebook event for it, so I just created one in the Acorn group.

Hopefully see you there :-)

I will bring a model B then. I'll aim for 9ish arrival as well.
