Retro Fusion 08 Event - 19th/20th July 2008

Post by boyo » Sat Mar 22, 2008 3:34 pm

Just secured Leamington Rugby Club as a venue for a gaming event this summer - July 19th and 20th. The venue can accomodate around 130 ppl.

What I was thinking, and I am thinking aloud here, the event would have:

2 Projectors - I own one and the venue has one, for competitions and big gaming fun (Songstar, Guitar Heroes, Donkey Konga etc)

8-10 cabs - I will bring 2 MAME cabs. I will ask Philip Oliver to borrow his Pacman original again. Will source the rest. Can anyone help?

6 (?) x 360 link up - Call of Duty 4 and whatever else. I will look to you guys to help here to bring your 360's and screens.

Lots of systems. I can bring:

1) Chipped Xbox1 + Screen
2) Spectrum 128k + Microdrive + TV
3) Gamecube
4) Chipped Psone
5) Japanese chipped Saturn
6) PS2 + 10" LCD screen
7) XBOX 360
8 ) I will bring my Wii and PS3 if needed.

Q/A session - will invite some of my contacts and persuade them to come - Archer, Olivers, Jon Hare, Fred Gray, Pickfords etc. Also I will invite Tim Daniel (the soon to be famous pop star guy who I am currently making a cab for - he may indeed be quite famous by the summer).

There is a website @ www.retrofusiononline.com/event08 . Just bought the domain www.fusiion.co.uk which I will set up to point to this.

I want the event to be linked to the Everyman charity again - so ticket price (£12) minus event costs will go to Everyman.

What do you guys think?

My rents still live in Leamington, very tempting to nip over for the weekend and actually make one of these events.

Will sort a list of hotels - there is a big one called "Quality Hotel" which is just up the road from the event.


L'spa is in Warwickshire - effectively right in the middle of England. B'ham airport is just up the road, so is Coventry train station.

There's also Coventry Airport and Leamington train station which are close-ish. The rugby club is a little outside the centre of Leamington.

I missed the last one due to my sister in law stitching me up. Plan to be there this time around.

Is she a nurse and what injury had you sustained that required said stitching up?

I think I may pop along to this as it looks great - I'll more than likely be driving down from York so anyone between York and Leamington is more than welcome to get a lift.
