I'm up for this, and yeah jumping in on any combined coach / travel stuff between venues would be cool.
Cheers Andy for posting up all the hotel info and stuff Thumbs Up

I'll probably just drive from daaan saaf, so will have spare seats if anyone can tolerate my arcade driving on real motorways (nope I have no plans to lug any Dinos around on this one!)

Wanted: - PCBs: Rainbow Islands, Rolling Thunder, Original Wonderboy PCB
- Parts needed: Naomi non-swivel castor / wheel, coin mech metal clip for Dino King Door

I'm in a similar situation. I think I'll just abandon him, or pay for the room at his house with beer Big smile

Any non vac members must be able to 1cc Taito's Football champ to gain entry......


Ha, I would just get him to sign up and get hooked, obviously Tongue

I may just get him to sign up then. He lived in the U.S.for a few years and is hoping to move back so imagine the cabs he'd have access to once he's there! I'll get him hooked and have him as a contact for my own arcade needs! Mwahahahaha!

Would love to go to this... was great last year and tying it in with the Expo & meeting John would be an amazing weekend. It's all sounding very expensive though and I have holidays to consider this year so might not be able to make it but that might change.
Looking for: Nice working monitors for my US games.

Nice to see sympathy runs in my family Cry
I've been bemoaning constantly at the wife 'cos I cant make this event (its not even her fault - double booked elsewhere!)

I think when she printed this off and left it taped to my arcade machine it was her way of saying ENOUGH Shocked

If anyone wants to keep the costs down I can offer a couple of rooms.

I live in Leeds about 50 miles away from Play, but I will be driving over on the Saturday for Play, then going to AC for the meet and then probably back to Play again on the Sunday.

So logistically - you need to be able to get to Leeds on Friday eve or early Saturday morning, or I can meet you at Play on the Saturday and drop you back off at Play on the Sunday...

The missus and I booked Trafford Centre North Premier Inn for Saturday night and have paid for play expo and arcade club both saturday and sunday. We'll be back and forth between the two venues over the weekend trying not to miss anything.

Happy to share Taxis to spread the cost. Super excited to get back to AC and see everyone again for the meet!
