Title: A special 'MEMBERS ONLY' event at RCM HQ
Post by: AndyRCM on July 16, 2011, 07:19:33 PM
For 50 lucky people we are having an event on the Saturday the 17th of September at RCMs new premises in Heather, near Ibstock, Leicestershire.

The event will start at 11.00am, will last all day and into the early evening too.
You will have access to around 40 or so of RCMs finest machines to play on and of course a sneak peak of our new premises. We are also considering showing a movie later on in the evening maybe?

One thing we can't do this time unfortunately (as per the other members event we did in Earl Shilton) is provide food. We will however be selling cold and hot drinks and other snacks such as crisps and chocolate, enough to keep you going.

One final thing is the price of the tickets . . . we are going to ask for donations this time (of over £6 please) - obviously the more you donate the more goes towards paying for our rent/electricity on the new place, you seriously would not believe how much electricity we use at one of these events - please do give generously if you can.

Please remember it is first come - first served as there are only 50 tickets available.

Please post your name(s) in here first - the first 50 people to say they are interested will get tickets. We will then send you an email saying that you have a ticket put to one side - if you could then use our 'donate' button to buy your ticket(s) please?

One thing we MUST stress - this is a members event - so ONLY members that are on our forums can come - this means that anybody that wants to come with a member (i.e Partners/friends etc) MUST sign up on these forums and post at least once in the introduction thread. Sorry to be so blunt but this is the point of a members event. Everybody that comes is a member of the RCM forums.

That is the problem now Mark . . . a lot more people doing events . . . I can't keep up with them all to be honest. That weekend is the best for us so can't really change it! :(

Not sure if I'll be attending now. Just checked the prices for a train ticket to Leicester and along with paying for a hotel its more than I can afford. If I have a bit more money by then and there's tickets left then I will come.

Due to the other event only being down the road - I have made a decision and moved our event to September 17th instead. Hope this is still okay for most of you?
Let me know if you have a problem.

Finally, after unpacking everything, I've found the little bugger.
However, I've not put anything on it yet (I didn't get chance to do it)
If you're going to this RCM Members do, would you like it back then? or before?

If you want me to bring it to the do, please remind me nearer the time as at the moment, with work being so busy and home life being quite hectic too, I have a tendancy to forget things quite easily. It seems that my memory is the faulty ZX Spectrum 16K model :D
