Wooooo thanks!
I've got several StrongARM RISC PCs, an A7000, A3010, A3000, A440.... who wants me to bring what?!
I do need some RISC OS 3 ROMS for an A310 if anyone has any spare...

Hello
I'm interested in attending this event.
Is this a group event only or open to the public?
Is this a group I can join?

I collect this retro equipment including other makes, I am also a member / Admin on the facebook page "Acorn Computer and BBC Micro Enthusiasts" as Matt Nicholson.

Thanks

Hi Matty.
I was going to respond on Facebook last night but only had my phone and was on my way to bed when I spotted your post.

It's not open to the public as there are only 20 spaces so to attend you have to simply pay the entry fee while there are spaces available. I offer the spaces on StarDot first as that's where the idea originated and I'm guaranteed 10 immediate 'Yes! I'll be there' responses and most of the rest of the spaces are usually taken up by the time the event occurs. I offer any leftover spaces to the Facebook group.
I can add your name to the confirmed list if you like and I'll send you a message, probably on Facebook since you are more active there, detailling what we get up to and how to pay.
Cheers,
Simon

Can everyone who is yet to pay please send payment asap as I have to pay for the room soon. If sorvad confirms his attendance then we are full!!
Can everyone who wants to attend the curry on the Saturday night let me know asap as I'm going to book a table soon and need to know the numbers.

Nightmare! How'd you manage to do that?

I've just looked at the Premier Inn website and it's saying there is no resaurant availab;e at the time we are there. I presume this is the on-site pub which may be problematic for those arriving on the Friday and expecting to eat there. I'm off to work now but will post more information when I have it.

Lee's had to drop out too so there are one or maybe two spaces left if anyone else wants to come.

Hi guys
I'm travelling up from Bristol Friday day time.
My partner Emma was going to come but she's double booked. She's doing a play.
Oh cool, oh i mean oh well.
I'm staying at the premier inn, Friday & Saturday night.

I've never been to one of these events before. I've met a couple of you before at other events.

I'm gonna prepare some equipment to bring.

Ps i'm an electronics engineer / electrician. Any use?

Cheers guys
Looking forward to it,
Matt

Curry for me please Simon!

Right now, my clients seem to be doing everything in their power to prevent me from coming :x . I remain determined to come nonetheless 8) .

But, does anyone know a way that I can leave Halifax at midday on the Sunday with two large boxes of retro gear, get back to Surrey to drop it off and then get to Edinburgh by 8pm the same day? :?

I could take your gear to Newcastle and you could pick it up on your way back. My house is about 3 minutes away from 2 exits on the A1.

"I'm just looking after it for someone!"

And so the phrase acquires a certain amount of useful credibility. :lol:

Right

I'm now booked into the hotel for friday / saturday so I'll be there.

Is there anything people want me to bring, I'm going to try and find time to put together an AtomColour & Floppy boards for richardtoohey, as it will save hime postage costs to NZ, if he takes them back with him.

I'm half way tempted to bring one of my Dragons, and the latest itteration of DragonMMC...hopefully with RTC by then :)

Anything else people want me to bring, apart from the usual Atom(s).....

Cheers.

Phill.
