Should have the proof back this week then going to print next week. I am ordering another batch of 50 so there some left.

We have booked one of the side rooms at the venue and will be converting it to an Ocean shrine. Mark Jones will be helping with this and bringing a lot of his rare Ocean memorabilia to display. We will have a lot of systems in this room just playing Ocean games.

Ocean guys coming so far :

Mark Jones
Simon Butler
Ian Richardson
Jim Bagley
Stephen Thomspson
Gary Bracey
Paul Hughes

These guys will also be available to sign the 'History of Ocean' book that will also be on sale at the event.

More info on the event here : http://www.revivalretroevents.com/index ... ent&itid=2
