Arcade Club might be a good place for a gathering?
It's a bit of a trek for me though, i'm down in south wales.
Could have my arm twisted, but a meet up with the UK lad's would inevitably be an excuse for drinking as well as playing games (for me anyway) so i'd need to sort out a travelodge or similar for a night.
Ahh, i cut my teeth as a pimply 12 year old in the arcades back in the day, would have been late 70's, long time ago now.
Had a look at their game list, no Metal Slug???? At least they have Bubble Bobble......
I want to visit Arcade Club. Huge location.
Northern Lights is a large pinball & vids meet, but meets at Arcade Club too now! Too far for me to go.
I'm down south in Hampshire, so it would be great if there was something in this neck of the spanner.
I personally really enjoy arcade club, there's a great selection of cabs and consoles including an AES setup and a cheap bar!
It's a good 2hrs from me but I stop in a hotel whenever I go.
We're all going to be scattered across the UK so I guess someone's going to have to travel if they want to go!
Might be worth finding where the majority are located and choose that location assuming there's a suitable venue / house to host it.
I'd be up for a meet. Another southerner here, but again, wouldn't mind travelling.
My favourite pigeon had a fatal run-in with a cloud...
I'm in Edinburgh, could be tempted to travel.
Edit - I just noticed arcade club is over 18's only on a Friday after 6pm - that would avoid the kiddies.
Unless I can convince you all (unlikely I know) to come up to Scotland for our first real arcade in decades, opening soon: https://www.facebook.com/konboarcadecafe/ also http://www.scotsman.com/news/arcade-...urgh-1-4055051
They were due to open last year, but council refused them planning permission at the 11th hour. They now have a new site they are working on, and crucially have planning permission.
Also it might be shit, but I don't think its going to be.
Edinburgh festival has lots on in August, so make it a holiday

Didn't know about that, nice one, I'll have a wee day out there when it opens.
