Exactly!

Can someone contact the chap who runs this arcade and enquire as to:

- If he'll be keen to let us descend on his place for the day
- If it's possible for us to have the place to ourselves for the day
- What the hire charge will be.

I know it was mentioned that the venue only needs to earn £10 a day to be profitable, but I reckon a £5 per head entry fee should be charged to those of us turning up. That way we're all least paying the owner for the inconvenience of him closing the place to the public for the day, and at the same time we're ploughing something back into the venue (money for either the upkeep or to purchase further machines).

Only an idea.

Apologies for putting this thread back on topic, but if we continue to fart-arse around we're really not going to make any progress in getting this organised :)

Well if it's just going to be us, it might be smart of him to trade a door fee for free play on the machines.

Agreed, setting the machines to free play one cold and wet winter day won't hurt to much if we all pay a (small) entry fee..
Still be nice to bring a few consoles and 8-bits of our own as well and make a day of it...

Darren, would it be possible to contact the owner and let him know what we're planning? I'm happy to contact him myself if I can just get his details.
