I'll be there, will be the first event I've gone to in ages.

Always preferred the Blackpool events & this seems more retro focused, which is great.

I keep debating going to this one.

pro's:
its a good event once you are in the event hall itself
get to see loads of friends i have met loads and also meet loads of people I have spoken to on here loads but never met

con's:
its very expensive to go at this time of year due to illuminations (everywhere I would normally stay is booked up or very expensive)
the norbreck isn't exactly my favourite venue

if there are a fair few having a trip down to arcade club on either the friday or saturday I might be persuaded to head down there

The Northern Rail strike is making this a bit of a pain in the hole to get to.

Just on way back. Top top weekend. Well done to all the organisers.

Was great to see a few old faces & a few folk I'd never got round to seeing before.

I think I ended up playing far more games than usual. Definitely the best event in years.

Yeah enjoyed it. Thought they’re wasn’t as many grafters. Loved the guy selling arcade bartops. They looked great. Good to see theHawk. Been a while

Played on a few machines. A good day

Same to the both of you! Really felt like one of the classic events. Very relaxed & loads of games to play.
