I booked a travelodge room for £9 for that day  3 miles outside of Coalville. I might use it, I might just ride straight back same day.  ;D

It turns out I've got to attend a practical exam in Luton on the 17th of November, and to get there on time I'll have to stay there overnight from the 16th.

My chances of attending are increasing :)

Hello everybody (who haven't got their tickets) . . .
The cut-off for buying tickets online will be the 1st November. After this date, tickets (subject to availability) will be available on the door only.
They will also be at the slightly higher price.

Regards
Andy and Linda

Hi all, first post... :D

Just bought 2 tickets to the open day and I'll be supplying the following systems for your gaming pleasure...

Hitachi MSX with Japanese game cartridges
Phillips CD-i
NEC PC-Engine
Atari 2600
Vectrex

I may also bring a projector/screen for big screen gaming and a custom bartop MAME cabinet.

Oh, and I'll be selling tickets for my Byte Back 2009 event too!

Look forward to meeting some of you there....

Title: Re: RCM Open Day - Tickets On Sale!

Well, one of my mates did! Japster brought the box of cables, I bought a couple of bits from him though!
I know who he is now? He had his wife with him and wasnt she playing on a psone at one point? or was it a gamecube?

Hello! I hope to attend, and will be buying tickets on the day. It may be difficult with my wife (non-gamer) and son (too young to be a gamer - 5 months) in tow. I only have one question: will there be an Atari ST? The entry for the STe on your site has a definite Amiga slant to it. I am not amused.  :D

I write an Atari ST blog, so would be nice if I could get some photos etc. and post them. Have just added a post announcing your event too, have a look if you like: http://thejoyofsticks.wordpress.com (http://thejoyofsticks.wordpress.com)
Title: Re: RCM Open Day - Tickets On Sale!
Post by: AndyRCM on November 09, 2008, 03:27:23 PM
Yes there will be an ST there, but . . . i cant find a mouse at the mo!
Sorry about the amiga slant, i love ALL computers really!!!

Andy

Aha .. I get to meet Stickhead then - someone who's not got an Amiga-slant :) 
Title: Re: RCM Open Day - Tickets On Sale!
Post by: AndyRCM on November 09, 2008, 05:24:09 PM
At this point in time - not being amiga biased (much) have 3 Atari St's

I have an Atari 520 STe, Atari 520STfm and an Atari 1040STfm too!
