Definitely. It is already on the calendar!! :D

I'll be booking a table too and bringing my compact Econet in a box for anyone needing the connectivity.

Why do I keep collecting Acorn gear? I'm going to need a considerably bigger man-cave. :?

I've tried contacting WROCC about having a desk to show some of my kit off at the show.
Not had any reply from them, does anyone here go to the meetings or deal with communications for WROCC. If so can you please get someone to contact me about this.

Cheers

I've just sent Chris an email to book my table.
How long have you been waiting for a reply? I know Chris is very busy and pretty much organises the whole thing by himself so it can take him a while to respond. He sent me details of how to book and some other information which I'll email to you if you pm me your address.
Cheers,
Simon

I'm considering it. I've just sent my wife a text message asking if she'd like a nice romantic weekend away on the 21st of April. She'll see straight through it.

I've got it in my diary. May even book a room this time even though it's just 40 minutes up the motorway.

I'll be coming up on Saturday morning - it is only 35 mins up the motorway (fingers crossed).

I've booked a table in the 8-bit section. :D

Why do I keep collecting Acorn gear? I'm going to need a considerably bigger man-cave. :?

The Liverpool - Palace match just got moved to the Sunday so I can make this now! Have just booked a room on the Friday night and will book a community table too (Simon I assume you've booked a table for ABug so I'll book one to show off some Retro Software games, k?).
