wot no playexpo thread?

well none of us should need reminding it is happening, this is intended more to be discussion before/during/after event, allow those that need help from locals or previous attendees with things like finding hotels (like rocking horse poo compared to last year), finding other rg members, and general stuff like that.
oh and of course post event pics and vids

so erm.....thats it, get on with it etc

if you are coming add your name to the thread and we can have a list i will update

confirmed attendees:
flatapex and mrs flatapex (and hopefully a few of our friends)
mlucifersam
archaic koala
slick2097
prinny's friend
woody cool
jdanddiet
oldtimer and mate
shinobi
tmr
sputryk
twoheadedboy
felgekarp

I'll be going again and I can't wait! :D

I booked the hotel back in May, I'll be staying at the big Premier inn near the Trafford Centre (Trafford centre west I think...)

i'll be there with my systems as usual - if anyone wants to find me, look for a C64 with a neon blue power light and a banana yellow cartridge, that'll be mine and i'll probably be nearby.

I'm going to be there, definitely - most likely the nervous/terrified-looking skinny guy trying to keep the queues in order.
