For the past 7 years, it has been North Shields / Whitley Bay; adjacent to North Tyneside General Hospital.

So in almost 50 years; I managed to move a whole 20 miles from my origins ;-)

On a serious note, if you'd like to attend there are 3 spaces left and it's only a couple of hours drive.

Sir, you are a legend. :) Loved your games growing up as a kid, Psycastria being a particular favourite. Usually super fast, often nails hard but always technically impressive and a lot of fun. Welcome to the forum. As Tricky said, don't suppose you fancy dusting off your 6502 skills again..?!

Welcome Gary, enjoy!

But be careful, this lot will lure you into getting all the Acorn hardware back and develop new stuff for it! :lol:
