Bristol mini-Convention 31 March - Discussion

Post by g8vpg » Thu Dec 13, 2018 3:55 pm

A mini-Convention will be held in Bristol on Sunday 31st March 2019. Doors will be open from 10.00am to 4.00pm. It will be held at the premises of the North Bristol ARC, the SHE7 Building, Braemar Crescent, Filton, Bristol BS7 0TD. This venue is easy to find, about two miles down the A38 from the M4/M5 interchange. There is a free car park just around corner from the venue. There is level access to the building.
It is envisaged that the morning will be an informal session. Tables will be available for members to demonstrate items or perhaps sell things, but this is not a rally with traders. It is also planned to have some test equipment available for setting up members projects. During the afternoon, there will be a lecture programme for about three hours. If you would like to volunteer to give a talk, please let us know. The organisers are Shaun G8VPG and Ian G8XZD.
More information will be posted here as our plans are developed; comments and suggestions will be welcome.
73 Shaun G8VPG.

Great news Shaun,

It should be well supported from this side of the bridge, as the location is easy to get to.

I'll spread the word!
