RISC OS Wakefield Show 2020

Post by RobC » Thu Jan 30, 2020 1:35 pm

Chris, the Wakefield RISC OS show organiser contacted me yesterday to ask whether any Stardot/ABUG folks are interested in having some tables again at this year's show?

The show is on the 18th of April: http://www.wakefieldshow.org.uk/

If you're interested in exhibiting, please reply in this thread and I'll let Chris know numbers. We've had quite a large 8-bit presence at the show over the last few years so it would be good to do so again this year.

I'll be taking a couple of machines probably showing Doom and a few other things.

Me too, it's just down the road so I'll probably book a room and go straight from work the previous day.

Just giving this a little bump :D

If you'd like a stand (or to share one) and haven't yet contacted the show organisers to let them know, could you please say so here so that I can confirm numbers to Chris?

Thanks,

Rob

Chris usually sends out mail asking previous table users if they want another! Unless things have changed?

If so, they may want to phone a friend.

Just had an email from Chris Hughes the WROCC Show organiser.

There is one table only remaining in the 8-bit section for the show on Saturday 18 April 2020.

Any interested takers please contact Chris directly.

Cheers,
