Great venue, great chat, great games, and great beer. Really enjoyable night. Massive thanks to Phil and the rest of the guys for organising the event. Definitely worth the distance travelled.

Good to meet you Dave, and amazing to think that your father and then you owned the arcade in the caravan park at the bottom of the village I grew up in. I used to cycle down there often. Interesting to hear your stories, especially that your father turned down buying smash hit Tank in 1974 (boo!), but backed a winner by getting Sprint One in 1978 (yay!).

Was great yesterday, big thanks to all who organised it and those who took cabs. Couldn't make the evening in the end but got there about 2pm for a few hours and met a few vaccers, and played a few games. Lots of fun and the time flew by.

Some pics from the event... didn't take many as was busy chatting and actually playing games... did ok, for me, at BombJack with 200K... really enjoyed Ianski's Jungle King and played a bit of Tempest before it went down...  Great venue, well run, nice crowd, nice beer (and strong cider... Mr Holley how was your head?!!)

Yeah the Titan was from the Kent raid! Will has brought it back to life. Great to see it running and played with.
It suits bombjack well.

Thanks to everyone who came and those who brought games, there was an awesome atmosphere and the banter was top class! Hung over most of the day today though.
Had a couple of cab casualties but was great to see them getting a lot of love. Really looking forward to the next meet.
I have some photos so I'll stick them up soon.
Looking for: Nice working monitors for my US games.

This was an awesome event. Great for us southerners!
I'll bring a cab myself next time!
Or maybe I should leave the car empty for future purchases?

Another weekend arcade blur! I swear these events need to be 10 times longer for me to stand any hope of chatting to everyone, taking any photos and fitting in game playing too. Plenty of folk I saw in the background for a fleeting moment and then never saw them again to say hello to (again!)

Cheers for the beers and chat, project parts, all the classics, fish tales and love for the mini cabs.
You know we'd drunk the bar dry of both lager and cider before midnight? Top job! Thumbs Up
Next one we need a bigger stash of alcohol, and a longer lock-in Wink

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