I'd like to add my thanks too.

My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves. So much to do, see and try out.

Everyone was friendly and it was nice to put faces to names. (sorry if i forget anyone!! It's nothing personal)

A very big thank's to Andy and Linda.

My wife, Ronnie, said to add a thank you to the man, who's name she can't remember, for letting her play Q'bert & Frogger.

I'm looking forward to playing on the Dreamcast I won today, after Top Gear.

Cheers to all again.

This must be the first retro event where I left with less than I brought (by a large magnitude too!) - great company one and all and thanks to Andy & Linda for the good grub and excellent organisation of the whole thing.

Couldn't stick around for the raffle as had to pop to a mate's place on the other side of Leicester before heading home with Mr & Mrs Slick :)

Thanks to the guy (who's name I've forgotten already!) with the C64 demos - I'll be in touch re: the help I need with my MMC Replay etc.

I would like to add my thanks to all who organized and brought stuff for us all to enjoy. It was great to meet you too, Mug, thanks for helping to ensure the ST would make an appearance!

Thank you all who attended, after all it is you who make the event by playing on the machines :)

We all feel it was a resounding success and are already talking about next year!

Oh and Mug, I'm gonna practice my Tempest now  ;)

Hopefully Combatking0 arrived in Luton ok, apologies for not being able to stay with you on the station to see you off.

Huge thank you to Andy, Linda & Family and all the kitchen staff for all their efforts today, yummy food and beverages (I'll come down from my caffiene high soon).

Like to add my thanks to Andy, Linda and everyone else who worked so hard to make for such a successful and enjoyable event.

I met some great people, played some great games which I'd forgotten all about, and even ended up with a working Commodore +4 I didn't know I had :-)

A great result - thanks again to all !

Thank you to everyone who came today, we hope you had a great time. Andy is certainly pleased with the turn out and with 70 tickets sold, for our first event, we feel it was worth it.

Hello people! Thank you to all of you who attended! Wow! It was a really enjoyable event for me too - i must admit at one point i was a little scared!
A special thank you to Linda and my kids for helping out! Also thanks to my mum and dad (Tina and Colin), my sister and brother in law (Sharon and Ken).
Also to my two helpers for last nite and this morning . . . Dave (PhoenixTLB) and James (Jimbob!). A mention must also go to the people who brought kit for us all to have a look at!

JUST THANKS TO EVERYONE BASICALLY!

Just wanted to add my thanks and congratulations to Andy (and family) for a successful and enjoyable day.

As I always seem to, I spoke to some of you guys and never twigged who you were online, but it was cool to meet you whoever you were! ;)

The thing that impressed me most was the donations given to the museum by various people. The generosity of some retro community members is truly inspirational! :D

Hopefully I managed to spread the word a little further about Byte Back and although I didn't sell many tickets on the day, plenty of people said they will be buying one soon... So I hope to see most of you again in March!

Apologies for not saying goodbye to most of you, as by the time I got back from dropping Combat at Leicester station you had all disappeared!
(I think that was the fastest packing away I've seen at an event).

Witchfinder I'll be dropping onto your site to order our tickets soon :) Hopfully seeing a lot of the same faces there as well.

Big thanks to Andy & Linda and their family for running the day and helping me arrive, and also to Phoenix for helping me to reach my train on time.
