Is anyone staying up the night before? I just wondered if there was gonna be any meetups (CURRY!) the night before, or perhaps anyone would be interested in going for a meal or hanging out a bit longer after the event?
I'll be up for hanging on after the event.
The thing is, it's quite close for me (only about 30 mins - 1hr away) so won't be stopping over, but I'm alright for going for a curry/Chinese/whatever afterwards.

I'll be about on the preceeding Saturday. Not sure if I'll have the energy for a meetup after assisting in the set up of 50-odd machines...

No idea what my plans are for getting there as of yet so more than likely travelling down on the Saturday to see my mate and then he'll drop us off in the morning of the event as he's about 10-15 miles away (when he's moved house).

@ StarshipUK - Wondering if your 1541 Ultimate will be making an appearance? Was hoping to take another good look at it.

If the RCM put one of their Commodore 64s out then yes, I will bring it with a Kensington Lock attached  ;)

It is even better now I have got a 2GB SD card with the whole Gamebase 64 v5 Games collection on it. That is over 19,000 games!

I am now just creating another 2GB SD card for it containing just about every demo ever made:

do you need to bring something to this event or can you just come and play on all the different stuff? are the arcades included in the ticket price or do you pay per go?

Hello Andy313 - you don't need to bring anything and the ticket price allows you to have a play on all of the machines except the arcade cabs - they will be on 10/20p a go.

I think it may well have a very big lock chaining it to the table as well as having gps tracking installed  ;)

Be nice to see the GameBase collection running on it. Soon as the next batch/Ultimate II released I'll deff be placing an order.
