For a number of months we've been having the misnamed "Southampton Pi Interest Group" meetings in Winchester. So the time has come for a name change. Based on the folks who turned up last month it's now called the "Southampton, Winchester, Andover & Basingstoke Pi Interest Group". Which is too long a name for all practical purposes.
So I've shortened "Southampton, Winchester, Andover & Basingstoke Pi Interest Group" to "SWABPiIG" which is catchy (if you work that way) and has images of strange things done in farming (if you think that way). But, it just fits better and can be a Twitter hashtag #SWABPiIG.
We've been meeting in the Roebuck Public House, Stockbridge Rd, Winchester every second Wednesday. There was a slight hiccough this month (pub was closed) - so the venue may change (watch this space).
This is a no-booking required event. Just turn up. It's just a chance to sit round a table with a beer and a Raspberry Pi (yes we do have live running Raspberry Pis) and chat about projects/experiments/the forum/etc (no restrictions, it even doesn't have to be about Pis) that have been done in the preceding month.
There's no agenda (unless you want one or have a very specific problem that needs to be fixed). There's no entry fee (except the price of a beer (or drink of your choice)). The venue will have FREE WiFi (so you can get your Raspberry Pi and/or laptop online).
The next SWABPiIG meeting is: 8th October at 20:00 at the Roebuck (subject to confirmation).

There is a Facebook group for SouthamptonPiInterestGroup (but as I'm not on Facebook I cant advertise this thread on there).
