Quote Thought this might be a good reminder for names and faces ahead of Revival... what about folks wearing a lanyard from either of the Arcade Club Vac meet ups?  I now know loads of you but I remember being a newer member and not having a clue :)


Good call yeah, I'll bring mine along.. I'll see if I can put it in something where it won't keep turning round Big smile

Good idea. It's useful for ticking off the spotters guide or target practise.

I'm shattered myself mate.

I have to say a massive thanks to both you and Chunksin for helping me move and build my cab up.
And also thanks to Roger for collecting the cab this afternoon.

It's been a long week, now it's power nap time!
See you in the morning mate. Smile

Great Day and played some classics that I had not seen before. My son loved it and bought more than me! Thank you for putting the event on.

Just got back in from a very hectic day.

It was a pleasure to meet 'The Dino King' and also nice to see a few familiar faces and some new ones. Smile

2 things stood out for me.

First it was such a pleasure to play what was the game of the 'Game Of The show' in my opinion.
The mammoth restoration effort getting it up and running, and the unique experience playing it.
What a difficult game though! It needs a lot of practice to get good at it for sure.



The second thing was having the opportunity to play on Alex's Sheriff cab.
If the Enduro Racer wasn't there it would have been my game of the show.
What an amazingly fun game! The clicky controls and the design of the cab,  such an awesome experience to play it.

Thanks for bringing those 2 gems to the event guys. Thumbs Up

I couldn't get a look in on Donkey Kong, even during the shut in it was always occupied.
My cab took a dump so had to travel home to get some bits, managed to get it back up and running in the end. Surprised it got so much love tbh, Robotech's Daytona got hammered though!

Thanks for arranging the event Craig, you deserved the break at the end as every time I seen you you was busy. And thanks for asking for a vegetarian/vegan option in the meal, it was much appreciated.

Cheers.

Had an awesome day at Revival yesterday, thanks to everyone involved.
It was great to see Alex's Nintendo line and his fantastinc Skyskipper cab.

A big thank you to whoever bought the Defender, spent a lot of time playing it only to confirm in my mind how much I really want one now!

Not me in the photo!

Wow what a few days first revival event where i have pledged some cabs
And seeing the setup of the event through a different perspective i think i previousley underestimated exactly how much effort goes into something like this

I would like to say thank you
Craig and the revival team
And a very big thank you to
Chunksin,vamino,rcantor77,jontron,
For helping me to transport and carry the super heavy sega driver parts
To set my cab up




I must admit that seeing kids that cant even reach the peddals having so much fun
Trying to drive made all the effort worthwhile :)

As others have said, well done to Craig and the team for organising such a great event and to all those how brought their cabs along.

Having the after hours curry on site was a great idea. Curry, Arcades and beer, what could be better :)

Apologies to anyone that had to endure my drunken babbling by the end of the night, I lost count of how many beers I had yesterday LOL.
