I just realised Level42 has much better scans than me, his retains the colour and detail. I should have looked at page 1 first!

I thought I sent you Andre's or Ettienne's scans Olly?

Did someone say "Beer"? 

Logistics wI'll be tough for me but if I can, I'll be there.

Will be in 020 around June 1st (Rebellion Punk fest at the Melkweg) - any chance you will be open by then)?

Have you tried the UK forums?  

I'm sure there was someone on either UKVAC or Jamma+ looking for one of these.

Edit - never mind, I see it has been sold!

Well, it seems that we are out of time so to speak.   Decision  time looms.   

You could just go for Arcade Club around mid September.  Manchester has loads of flights available, and I'm sure you could do Leeds Bradford or Newcastle and take a train. Hell even Liverpool or Birmingham are only a few hours away.

Make it happen.  If there are no good flight deals, keep checking.  Chances are you will get a deal at some point (prices may go up as well as down,  depending on demand).  Or you can always take the ferry to Newcastle or Hull and drive the rest.

Whatever happens, make it a DLF rule that Eurocade suggestions must be in by April and a final decision on May 01 perhaps.  Give every one a chance to plan ahead.

5 minutes walk from Maashaven metro I see.  The wife is plotting a trip to 020 for us in September, along with my oldest child (if 23 is still classed as a child lol).  If it happens, then I am sure I ill take a trip to 010 to escape the drunk, skunk fuelled Brits in 020 for a day.  Maybe even a trip to Doomdrecht if my old Boss is still living there.

If pinball is also allowed, this place is amazing:

Prague sounds cool.  Dates ?  My vacation begins September 14th this year, crossing my fingers that I can make it.

Sooo, What is the verdict folks.

I am sitting in the desert trying to make plans for my vacation in September.  NERG is no longer an option for me, but I do plan on flying back Europe bound on 14th September for 4 weeks.  Plans are still very much undecided at present, but I do have 4 whole weeks to play with starting Sept 14th.

Plan is Play Glasgow June, maybe Reykjavik via New York on 14th September - but I do have and Iraqi visa in my passport which means a whole world of pain trying to get in to the USA.  Well done "The Donald" for making the new rules!

Back to its spiritual home for it's 5th annual event is NERG.  This is in my mind the highlight of the UK retrogaming scene, run  by an enthusiast for enthusiasts.  Already promising 100 cabs and 50 pins, I probably will bring down some Williams goodies.

If you of you continental cousins can make it across to Brexitland for this I do thoroughly recommend it.  The organiser Phil,does have a discounted rate at a hotel close to the event and usually lays on some transport to and from the hotel on the day also.

Flights are readily available from to Newcastle, and even an overnight ferry from Rotterdam if you want to bring a cab or 2 and the family over.  The Metro centre is also rumoured to be a rather large shopping centre if you want to bring the wife / girlfriend / family for a shopping trip.

Did I forget to add that it is also a cracking night out in the 'Toon

I thoroughly recommend this folks, and you can get to meet all those lovely UK enthusiasts who are to afraid to travel to Eurocade.  I can even throw in a trip to the Black Bull to see whatever random punk band is playing on the Friday night.

Any questions you have follow the links on the page above or drop a post to UKVAC / Jamma+.

Maybe some Scotchbrite scouring pad, coupled with Iso-Propanol alcohol would work.  The scottchbrite is a softish scouring pad which should be ok on the original paintwork (certainly cleaned the gunk off my Sinistar ok with no scratching to the original Williams stencil-work.

Thanks for a great weekend.  It was good to meet "the crew", new and old for what was my 3rd Eurocade, each one in a different venue !

Some beer and food now before setting off from Bremen to the airport.

Setting off now.  Plan is to pick up one of my favourites malt whisky's, but also another one of your choice if you guys have a preference.

You have 2 hrs to decide !
