I'm stopping at the Tollgate.
If any of you are stopping there too, we could meet up for a drink in the bar to evaluate the day's gaming :D

We (as in RCM) are taking Dragon 32, Oric, Sharp MZ700 and erm something else that I cant remember!
I've got you down for bringing a GX4000, Dragon 32 and a 3DO. I'll add the Oric and the Sharp to my list!

I'll be bringing:-

Atari Jaguar
Oric 1 setup - inc printer joystick adapter and literature
Any retro compilations for ps2...Is ther going to be on there? If not i'll bring mine.
If I can get it working my Family 168 (jap NES clone with games built it)
1 small portable tv.
32" widescreen tv (for RCM when ready for it) It's a bit heavy so I'll need some help unloading it!!
Woah, I didn't know about any of this stuff! Cool though... That means I can leave my Jaguar at home for a start! I assume you have Tempest 2000 and the other 3 or 4 reasonable games for it!  ;)

The PS2 would be most welcome too although there will be a couple about (inc. one for Guitar Hero). I'll bring a bunch of PS2 shooters and a couple of retro compilations but in reality there will be plenty of retro machines to play those games on so the focus for the PS2 should be on pick-up-and-play games designed for that system. Stuff like Soul Calibur II, Capcom Fighting Jam and State of Emergency should bridge the gap nicely between retro and new-gen stuff... 

That 32" widescreen TV would be awesome for one of the PS2 or Xboxes to plug into, if it's not needed for anything you're bringing... ;D

I have Tempest 2000, Doom, Wolfenstien, Club Drive, Kasumi Ninja, Syndicate, Cybermorph, Aliens Vs Preditor.

If anyone else has any other Jaguar Games please feel free to bring too.

Time permitting on the day I can load any PS2 retro games onto it's Hard drive as they load quicker. I currently have lots of Singstar games on it (for the wife's not me!!!)

I will have some room in the car if anyone in south Leicester area needs anything taking (I've got an estate car) let me know, via PM, and we can arrange.

What time can we get there to set up on the Saturday?

@Witchfinder . . . sorry mate - I did mean to write down somewhere what I supposed to be bringing. I will bring the ones mentioned now, Dragon 32, Oric Atmos, Sharp MZ700, GX4000 and the 3DO. No problem - I may even just bring three TVs and swap the machines around a little.

Will you be putting billdooruk near to us too? We can help him setup then if that is okay?

Andy

ps. we have quite a few Jaguar games so I will bring those too

Probably from about 9am but I'll be confirming that via an email to all exhibitors/kit suppliers in a couple of weeks...

Yes, you better had do that because I can only guarantee one 2 metre table as it stands, though I may be able to drum up something a little bigger!

Will you be putting billdooruk near to us too? We can help him setup then if that is okay?
His stuff will be dotted around in several areas due to crossing various eras of hardware, but as I have it planned right now, his PS2 and Oric would both be within spitting distance of your table...

I've ordered my ticket, may have to sleep in the gutter though :D

Any chance I could bring my Amiga 4000 and some 8bit Atari stuff?

Best view in town, you can see the stars... :D

Surely the Holiday Inn still has rooms?
