And I went to Play which was a 5 hour journey for me, even longer for the people who picked me up.
Then why grumble about it? I don't get it, I'm obviously missing something.

This is why I'm a bit miffed I missed you at Play. I'm sure there's some contextual tone I'm missing in some of your posts.

This x Pi +1. If it's like that? I'm all over it like Oprah on a baked ham.

I didn't whinge about anything :?

I was more saying why just the North and Midlands and not the South too if you are trying to be fair to everyone. I was just asking the reasoning.

Everyone knows I go to A LOT of shows, have run several of my own and have given away hours and hours of my own time not to mention equipment helping shows out.

Not sure how I missed you at Play either, as I already said to a few others I was easy to find as I mostly stayed in the same place.

RCM will also be supporting this event 130%. Andy and I have been talking about this joint venture for some time.

So already:

1) RCM
2) Attic Bug
3) TurnerArcades
4) Jamma +
5) Ocean

Going to see of I can get Ultimate there as I have a couple of senior contacts :D

Just for the record - an event in Warwickshire is in the MIDDLE!!!

May do a warmer at the same venue as I did the Retro Ball back in 2005. Caters for around 300. Maybe Feb/March time - then a bigger one in July/August. How does that sound?

Retro Ball 2013 - see you there squire. Not (so far) got any European events planning to visit in Feb/March for me, so should be there.
