On a curious note - it is both the 20th anniversary of the show, and also
the 20th show
In case anyone picks Andrew up on this, the mistake is mine. Explanation
here:

https://www.riscosopen.org/forum/forums/1/topics/9815?page=1#posts-74402

As I said in that post, at some point I was told there was a year when
the show didn't happen, so my theory is that perhaps there was a year it
was planned and booked, but in the end didn't happen. (If so, the 20/20
thing would still be correct).

At some point, I'll try to search further and find a definitive answer,
but if anyone has any knowledge/recollection of such a thing happening
(or not as the case may be) please let me know.

I have a vague recollection the the Foot and Mouth epidemic which started
in February 2001 may have caused the show to be cancelled at short notice.

Was that foot and mouth or foot in mouth and do we still need to bring a
cake fork?

The 2001 show definitely took place, as I have the usenet postings
from that time. Vantage was being demonstrated, and RISC Station were
demoing a prototype portable. Unfortunately my archove stops at
October 2000.

Paul Middleton have a talk, which was basically saying that in 5 years
everyone would be using set top boxes, and that was the future of RISC
OS!

Uh... Didn't Peter Bondar say that several years earlier?

Possibly. I just quoted it, as I thought it interesting how things
have moved on. Hardly anyone talks of STBs now as people have gone to
more mobile devices.

Sorry for the late notice, I've been a teeny weeny bit busy!

We that is (CJE Micro's & 4D) will not be exhibiting at this weeks RISC OS
South West Show. My house renovation has reached a manic stage and is
currently occupying most of my time.

We look forward to seeing customers at the Wakefield Show on 21st April.

And the definitive answer is: never; the show not happening was a
figment of my imagination.

I suspect I misremembered what I'd been told and/or confused two
different events. I was almost certainly thinking of the 2003 *Midlands*
show, which would have been held at the National Motorcycle Museum had
the venue not suffered a fire in September of that year.

The following year, the ARM Club's show was one of the first events to
be held at the newly rebuilt museum (4th December).

On 12 Feb 2018 as I do recall,
R-Comp and Orpheus Internet would like to remind everyone that it is now
just a couple of weeks until the first RISC OS show of 2018 - the
SouthWest Show at the Webbington Hotel south of Bristol.
Xavier Tardy was supposed to be picking up some monitors from me either
before or after the show, but I never heard anything from him - does anyone
know whether he attended or not?
