Title: 31st May 2009 - RCM Retro Gaming Event
Post by: AndyRCM on November 19, 2008, 10:44:10 PM
Righty - now then - we have decided to do two events next year - one in May and one in November (see other thread!).

Both events will be held at the same venue as last times - with things changed around a little and peoples comments taken on board!

If you have anything further to add/help with please let us know through either of the two threads? or of course you can always PM us?

Andy and Linda

Don't think there's any retro-shows abroad that weekend so should be in attendance.

I'll be there, more than likely.

Sounds like you'll be wanting to sell tickets to your event at some kind of retro gathering a couple of month earlier... Can you think of one? ;)

Course it is! Drop me a line sometime soon about any requirements you have for 'advertising space' at the event, e.g. a table etc to promote the museum/event.

I'm updating the big advertising banner. Will it start and finish at the same times?
Also, when is the deadline for buying tickets?

The new one will be up soon. If you want any changes made to it, just ask.

Hi Combat,

Yes it will start and finish at the same times as the other one.

Ticket prices are changing, so will have to get back to you on that one later.

Deadline for buying tickets online will be 15th May 2009

I guessed the ticket deadline correctly ;D

I'll replace the ticket prices with ?s until they are confirmed.

The ticket prices for May will be £4.50 pre-ticket sales and £6.00 on the day.
Sorry about the increase but we have just found out that the room is costing us double due to the amount of electricity that we used last time!

I forgot to ask - how much will a child's ticket cost?
Title: Re: 31st May 2009 - RCM Retro Gaming Event
Post by: AndyRCM on December 16, 2008, 09:05:03 AM
@Combatking - I think for next year the cost will be £1 - pre-order and on the day.
Title: Re: 31st May 2009 - RCM Retro Gaming Event
Post by: combatking0 on December 17, 2008, 04:06:54 PM
I'll have the current one updated tomorrow, and the 300x50 done in the next week or 2.
