Title: A gaming event for members only
Post by: AndyRCM on July 16, 2011, 11:00:10 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?

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.

Andy

Hi Andy - I'm new to the forum, but have been to the last 3 events at Swannington after being introduced to them via Mick - aka Mimo from Groby. I was wondering if I could have one ticket please? I would donate £8 if thats ok?
Cheers, Grant.

Looks like we should be showing the movie 'Wargames' at our 'Members Do' on the 17th September - it will hopefully be shown from our Laser Disc player! ;) Retro Movie on Retro Hardware! ;)
