Our Next Meeting: Wednesday 15th September 2017
Alternative software applications :Model Railways, Amateur Radio and Telescope control etc. and any more you can think of!

This is somewhat out on a limb and I have no idea what will be covered here. It was just an idea that there could be some interesting applications in other areas.

A quick look online shows a wealth of software for all of the above. It should make for an interesting evening; especially if anyone in the club actually uses any of it.

Our Last Meeting: Wednesday 16th August 2017
Social Evening at the Last Anchor , Ipswich Marina at 7:30 p.m.
All Welcome.

This was attended by a small but happy group and we had a very enjoyable evening at the Last Anchor once more with some excellent food. We missed some of our friends but hope they can come next time in January.

Here are a few of the customary photos of the assembled company.
