Clubnet keeps you in touch with the microcosm of personal computer enthusiasts throughout the UK. It is divided into two sections - clubs and user groups.

We publish a list of each section on alternate weeks. This week it's the turn of the user groups, which are listed alphabetically by machine.

From time to time we will be focusing a feature on an individual club or user group. If you've just started your own user group or if your group is planning something of special interest, then drop us a line and we'll spread the word.

From this issue, Clubnet brings you a weekly fly-on-the-wall report of the activities of individual groups, alternating between clubs and user groups. Sandra Grandison puts the new series on the road with a report from the Apple buffs of Croydon. Next week: Cambridge Microcomputer Club.

Apple Workshop

Only a year ago the Croydon Apple User Group started life with just 15 members, now its membership has doubled. Meetings usually take two forms - a formal lecture, or a workshop evening, where members use the equipment made available by Vega Computers, who distribute Apple.

The workshop evenings feature discussions on the latest hardware, software and add-ons. And, of course, members talk about their latest ventures.

Roger Caws, chairman of the group, said: "Whether you're a novice or a boffin, we always welcome new members." Indeed, members' jobs do vary markedly. One evening's mix included a designer, a cost controller, a programmer and several businessmen.

After Mr. Caws' lively talk on the technicalities of PEEKing and POKEing, members took a break to contemplate the pros and cons of machine coding on their own micros.

Mr. Caws said: "We want to publicise our services to any disabled person in the area who has an Apple machine and has a problem with their computer or programs. We've got the expertise among us and we would like to offer it when we can."

Future talks planned include a graphics demonstration, organisation of Apple disks, Why Pascal?, prints, and sequential and random access files.
