Hi guys
Sorry for the delay in getting this sorted but had to get confirmation from everyone.
The plan is to reveal Sky skipper to the uk audience at replay Manchester 14th & 15th October
The reveal will be held on Saturday with me Whitney roberts,Olly cotton and John Jacobson from johns arcade.
You will be able to play sky skipper the unreleased game by Nintendo on original hardware.
Saturday evening will be party time at the Arcade club where you will get a few nibbles with your £15 entrance fee and get to chat to John and play some games.
This is a big thing for John to come to the uk and I know he is very excited to meet you all and chat about the uk scene and have a beer with you all.
I've been a fan of johns since he first did his video on the red tent vs system and have been following him ever since so would like to make it very special on his first visit to the uk arcade scene and welcome him into our community with open arms with a beer and a scotch egg,no more gas station eggs
Sunday I will be back at play Manchester where sky skipper will be on its last showing this year so make sure you get to play it.
Hope you all can show support for the community of Ukvac and attend this event.
Last year was a great successes let's make this one even bigger and better .
Many thanks
Alex

Last years Photo:

Many thanks to everyone who helped plan to make the meet such a success. It was great to chat and play the machines with such a nice group of folk.

I was thinking it might be nice to record who is who.
PM me numbers, UKVAC form name or real name or both (as you prefer) and I'll edit this post and compile a list (or let me know if you'd rather not be ID-ed).
I know some people had left by the time the photo was taken so I can add them to the list too.

I will be just doing the Saturday day/evening event at Arcade Club, but would be travelling into Manchester, so need to get from there to arcade club, so would be up for joining any travel from there/Play.   Struggling to find hotels with twin beds in bury, just booked this for sat night, as Premier Inn is sold out.

So depending on which train station you arrive at but I think the tram to Bury is just outside of Piccadilly Station. Don't make the mistake I did last year and catch the bus as it takes over an hour to get to Bury..


Posted By: tin
Date Posted: 02 Jul 2017 at 4:32pm
The Bolholt is reasonable, and a £5 or so taxi away from AC AFAIR. I'm there sat PM too.

If you can't make the transport, there is a very regular tram that goes directly from Manchester Picc to Bury. Then 15 mins walk from there or another taxi to AC.

I'm in for this, i stayed at the Village just down the road from AC last meet, 10 minute walk to AC from the hotel. will probably try book in there again.
I will be driving from Play to AC, so if anyone wants a lift just ask.

I'm in. I just booked a twin room for Bonehead and myself at Premier Inn from Friday to Sunday. Works out at £35 per person per night.

They probably wont release a single night over a weekend until they are nearly at capacity.

Good work, I'd tried the Premier Inn, but I think you had to book a stretch of days in a row and it was only offering up a double.

BY CAR

If arriving via motorway you’ll want to exit the M66 at junction 2 towards Bury, then keep right and head up Wash Lane. At the first set of lights, take a left on to Heywood Street and you’ll see a small road immediately to the right. That’s Cork Street. Head through the gate at the end and you’ve arrived at Ela Mill. We have a spacious car park with overflow for the busier days. If you’re arriving via Bury, or any route which takes you down Rochdale Road (A58), then you can continue to the junction of Rochdale Road and Heywood Street and head North with Cork Street on your left just before the lights.

BY RAIL

Both train and tram (Metrolink) routes use the Bury Interchange, with direct routes from Manchester and other nearby towns. The Metrolink Bury line terminates there presenting one of the simplest routes from Manchester and other connecting lines. A walk from the station to Arcade Club is just 1 mile (20mins).

We love to welcome visitors from even further away! Manchester Airport provides comprehensive transport links in to Manchester City Centre. From there you can travel by rail or taxi to arrive at Arcade Club. Please contact us in advance of travel if you’d like any further advice such as where to stay.

*****Trying to Gauge interest in Hiring a coach to get us from Play to AC on saturday night***** 

A number of us are staying in hotels around the Play event on the saturday night and I was wondering if its worth organising a mini-bus/coach depending on numbers to Arcade Club and back... I've had a few quotes from companies and they are a bit more than I expected but might work out cheaper than getting 4 into a taxi there and back. So i'm just putting the proverbial finger in the air to see if its worth the effort. I don't mind sorting as Alex and Andy will have enough on there plates that weekend.

PS ... I'm stopping over on Friday night as well so if anyone else is about and wants to hit AC early let me know Big smile

I may just get him to sign up then. He lived in the U.S.for a few years and is hoping to move back so imagine the cabs he'd have access to once he's there! I'll get him hooked and have him as a contact for my own arcade needs! Mwahahahaha!

Nice to see sympathy runs in my family Cry
I've been bemoaning constantly at the wife 'cos I cant make this event (its not even her fault - double booked elsewhere!)

I think when she printed this off and left it taped to my arcade machine it was her way of saying ENOUGH Shocked

If anyone wants to keep the costs down I can offer a couple of rooms.

I live in Leeds about 50 miles away from Play, but I will be driving over on the Saturday for Play, then going to AC for the meet and then probably back to Play again on the Sunday.

So logistically - you need to be able to get to Leeds on Friday eve or early Saturday morning, or I can meet you at Play on the Saturday and drop you back off at Play on the Sunday...

The missus and I booked Trafford Centre North Premier Inn for Saturday night and have paid for play expo and arcade club both saturday and sunday. We'll be back and forth between the two venues over the weekend trying not to miss anything.

Happy to share Taxis to spread the cost. Super excited to get back to AC and see everyone again for the meet!

Just booked into Village, way more expensive than last year! 
But i know the route and can stagger back in 5 minutes from AC.
Email sent Andy, forgot to mention i'll be there both days, as i'll probably do Play on the Saturday then, AC on Sat night and Sunday.
Be so nice to meet new folk and the usual crowd too. DjRouge i will find you this time!

Don't want to get denied entry on the door!, can you check you have accepted my payment, paid 17/07
An RGDS podcast buddy might be coming along too if thats cool, he's on AO, so have told him to join here too. I'll find out first if he is definitely intending to come.

Hi guys
There has been a change of plan for the sky skipper reveal.
Due to logistics and time I've decided to do the reveal Saturday evening at the Arcade club instead of play Manchester.
I am so so sorry for those of you that have bought tickets for replay Manchester on the assumption that it will be there but I've had to do this.
Me whitney and John will still be at play Manchester in the day but I think it's better for Sky skipper to be revealed at the arcade club.
This will be a party for all Ukvacers where we can chat drink and enjoy the atmosphere amongst friends.
Again I am really sorry if I've messed anyone around but this could not be avoided.
It's going to be a great night
Look forward to seeing you all
My apologies
Alex
