Will be stopping over for the Saturday. Double room if possible, but Twin's okay if there aren't any left.

sorry if its mentioned but what capacity is this?
wont be able to tell if I can go for a while so will it sell out fast?

also if its too big, being my first one and not having met any of you, if its too big its harder to bump into people you "recognise" :D .

The capacity is scalable depending on demand. Am sure we will be able to fit you in even if ticket sales go crazy.

As for recognising forum peeps, we have few ideas for this as the name badges/lanyards at other events haven't really worked that well.

Perhaps everyone could wear one of those sandwich boards, with Retro Gamer and your user name on it.

Mrs Trucker™ and I will be there. Will likely be coming down on the Friday and going home on Sunday. Definitely up for a group booking on accomodation.

Mrs Master and me will be there too, also from the Friday til the Sunday.

Like the idea of a group booking, I want to stay where all the cool people are (of course).

Hey guys, we can have a midnight feast!

Ooh, don't fancy going on Noah's Ark whilst "under the influence" - that thing's confusing enough as it is!

I've been to Blackpool many times to play "The Arcade", so it wouldn't be difficult for me to go down there for this one... if I'm available that weekend. Very interesting...
