2019 Meetings:
Programme to be confirmed

  • 4 Jan - Race timer – Duncan (Race timing computer system primarily for use with marathons.)
  • 1 Feb - Tablets & Phones
  • 1 Mar - Computer Setup - Frank Metcalf
  • 5 Apr - Talk by Gary from the CAAOS shop in Thame. Last year he gave us an interesting talk and he is able to give an up to date talk on aspects of computing relevant to us. I have suggested that he talk about moving from an old PC to a new one avoiding the worst pitfalls but he is free to cover topics that he feels more relevant. A question and answer session will be included so be sure to raise any issues that are bothering you.
