Title: BEerCade 2019
Post by: ocb on November 09, 2018, 10:18:04 PM
We need a meet in Belgium.

I know I'm not a core member of the DLF crew, but WFT.

Round about Carnaval 2019, my plan is we have:

1. A microbrewery
2. A bunch of pins
3. A bunch of cabs
4. A bunch of consoles
5. Some modern VR kit
6. Cheap accommodation close by


The idea isn't a Eurocade. It's something different.
It's to kick off a regular meet of European "arcade lifestyle" enthusiasts.  Absolutely, it's the same folk on here, and on the UK forums. It's also for those who just want to turn up and play a bit with old cabs, or have an excuse to do something different.

I'm a no profit guy - the event will be set up as such.

This is happening. I don't want bad feeling or whatever from the elder members here. I'm a collector and die-hard enthusiast who has zero interest in making money from the arcade scene. Times are getting "interesting" though, and if we (serious collectors) don't do things to keep the community alive, we'll lose to the HyperSpin and rip/flip lot.

Sounds great. I think it is awsome that someone is taking initiative. The funny thing is that I was also looking into some plan to setup something of a meet here in NL. Something easy to organize.  Spoke about it with Level42 (founding father of Eurocade) and he would love it if somebody organised some Euro meetup. Keep me posted or send me a pm.

So far I have a few of the die-hard Brits who say theyd come over.

Probably a smart move I talk with L42 myself, its been a long time Ive not set up an event...

Been a while since I attended any meeting. Haven't seen all the folks for a while ... I am definitely interested! Keep us posted and don't worry. Eurocade was ment to be a traveling meeting! So your approach is right on spot.

Well, if anyone knows friendly owners of a micro-brewery?

By hazard, I can probably get one of the biggest hotels in Belgium - but I don't want that!

It's Belgium. It's got to be in a brewery, or a Monastic beer temple...
