Hello  :D

I'm new to the site, thanks for the plug on Game Central today......I now know there are other like minded people in the Leicester area.

I'm interested in attending the event, and might be able to get some other retro friends to join too.

I may be able to bring my Oric-1 48k complete with printer plotter (i know the ink's have run out/dry by now) I'll just have to go back to my parents in Birmingham to check it still works though as I've never moved it to my home in Wigston.

I also have Nintendo Game & Watch - 2 screen Donkey Kong, It did fully work before the batteries ran out!

What other systems would be welcomed?  I know they are more common but I've also got a USA Sega Genesis, Atari Jaguar (with Tempest 2000, Aliens vs Predator and Cybermorph) all original boxed. In fact the Game & Watch is original Boxed - like most of my collection of consoles & computers.

I'll see what else I've got that may be of help for the day.....Time for the long put off stock take in the loft & storage area's!!

Cheers   :D

Yeah of course! There will be a small entrance fee as we have to pay for the hire of the hall!!
But the more the merrier, and Linda, my wife is making lots of wheat free cakes n stuff - refreshments will also be available.

We have sat down and worked some prices out for the Open Day . . .

Advance tickets - paid through paypal - will be £2.50 adult and 50p for children.

Entrance on the day - will be £3.50 adult and 50p for children.

The entrance fee is to pay for advertising, the hire of the room and kitchen facilities. If there is anything left after that - it will be to buy more computers/consoles for the museum and baking stuff for Linda.

They will go on sale in early September - okay?
We can then send them out at the end of October.

Andy

ps - I think this event is going to be a lot bigger than I ever hoped for!!!

I'll advertise this event on my website if you like, with a link to the ticket sales page.

If you haven't collected the Amiga 500 from me, should I bring it with me?

@Combatking
Yeah - that would be great on both counts - althought I do aim to pick it up before hand!
Thanks

Excellent. If you have a banner or any other graphics you'd like me to use in the advert, just point me in the right direction.

You might want to give me a description of the event as well, in your own words to avoid disapointment, as I'm prone to getting things mixed up.

If you want a Sega Saturn Steering Wheel, and it hasn't sold before you come to collect it, you can have that as well. I've tried to sell it twice on eBay, both times to no avail. It's up for sale on my shop, but it's yours if you want it.
Retroman!
