Not 'local to Bournemouth' really, but I can by all means ferry this down to Surrey for you. I have family in Dorset too, so I am down there every once in while.

Looking forward to this, plan to be up from Basingstoke for Saturday + Sunday.  Will be driving an estate car so could move stuff if anybody is interested.

It was my intention to try to set a pac-land record one day at arcade club but at the moment I'm a bit out of practice and couldn't get anywhere near the arcade record just now, but the MAME record isn't very high and would be quite beatable.  I know Saturday is going to be crazy busy so wouldn't attempt it then but if Sunday is a little quieter I could have a go then.

So question to Andy: is it possible to install a recent build of WolfMAME on one of your PCs at arcade club to do this on?  I can bring the rom definitions with me!

He knows all about  Sky Skipper and is really looking forward to it. I cant leave him on his own downstairs he is only 8.


My son is also going who is 9, my son goes off and does his own thing on the top floor - they'll be fine.


It's a very safe place guys, kids can't get lost and there's only one main way in or out the building, so kids will be fine for a while going about their biz.

Looking forward to it myself. Some guys on this list I've not had chance to talk to in a long time, and want to catch up. Virtually all of the Revival crew will now be in attendance too, so be good chance to speak to any of us if you're interested in contributing to next year's event or have any ideas for things we can do :).

If you need me, I'll be eating teriyaki noodles over by the bar, with a familiar face and a pissed-up brummie in tow.

That’s great that  the kids will be fine, not been before but the atmosphere in the pictures and videos looks awesome, i was mainly wondering about the actual reveal session, can my boy stand with me while we watch or has he got to say downstairs?

I'm in a Hotel next to eventcity for play ... Manchester Trafford Centre West... anyone know the best route to get to AC via trams rather than getting a taxi for tonight .. I can imagine taxi's both ways would seriously dent my beer fund. For Saturday i'm fine as a few VACs are stopping in hotels around the Play event.

I live near the hotel and your not really near a tram stop.  Choices are Stretford tram stop, which is probably more direct to Bury, or the stop at Eccles.  The stop at Eccles would need to go through Salford before joining the Altrincham to Manchester line.  You need to head towards Victoria station as that's the right direction to go to Bury.  Both journeys will take a while, but I would say the Eccles journey would be longer.

I'm not attending either Play or the UKVac meet this time around, but hope you all have a good time.
