Mike,
Great to have you on here mate - whereabouts are your from? I would guess Hinckley area (my original hometown!).
You can buy tickets from the homepage . . . info and instructions on there - we have a paypal donate button - depending on what tickets you want you send money that way . . .
Can't wait to see what systems you have! :)
Cheers
Andy

In 1980 I obtained an Atari VCS with Combat and Space Invaders cartridges.   From then on throughout the following years I then bought the Atari 400/800XL/130XE/520ST/520STE/Lynx and Jaguar.

Hi Mike,

Not much of an Atari fan then  ;D welcome to the MAD Wonderful world of RCM !!

Hi, I'm Elgen from Denmark, 35 years old.
I own 2 standard arcade cabinets and about 40 pcb's (not all of them working) and have just build myself a SuperGun (pics might follow later };-D).
I also own alot of consoles (both new and retro) and loves shmups.

I've fooled around with arcade hardware for about 5 years now.
I'm pretty nifty with a soldering iron, and loves to play around to get thing fixed.

I have my whole collection registred at the danish forum Play:Right and it can we viewed right here:

(original link)
http://playright.dk/samlerprofil.php?id=1278

I'm living in the Copenhagen suburb Vanløse with my wife and two kids (boy almost 10 years, girl 6 years, another boy on the way at May).

And btw, 'Elgen' is danish for 'The Elk' or 'The Moose', hence the antlers on my smileys };-D

Hi Everyone
I am Steve from the West Midlands in the UK,although i do play the odd recent game i am 90% a retro gamer and have been gaming in one form or another since 1983.My heart lies with my first systems- Atari 2600,Zx Speccy and arcade games of course and i enjoy playing retro games upto the Jag/Dreamcast era and i am a member of 20+ retro gaming and arcade collecting forums.
I own 6 u/r arcade cabs and a somewhat battered HotRace Cocktail but despite having some qualifications in electronics but my knowledge in arcade board repair is average to below so i may be asking a few questions no doubt. ::)
regrds Steve
