300 in Leeds?!?! Wow! I thought Leeds was just gonna be a small thing. When does it open? How many cabs you actually got now? Must be a fairly high number....maybe even enough to open a Glasgow Arcade Club

Same size!!! goodness I thought the Leeds one was going to be a smaller one, bit like a moon around the main planet!  I prefer the thought of one main bash with as many attending as possible.   Also like the sound of an outdoor area.  I seem to spend more time having a natter and drinking at these.

Maybe there should a Summer (Leeds) Winter (Bury) events.

We just need to decide which location at what time - Leeds has a large outside area - possibly good for summer :)

Leeds is where my inlaws stay, might have to suggest a visit, then drive right past and into Arcade Club.

Seeing a Cosmic Avenger cabinet for the first time was the highlight for me. I've never seen one before but I played the port on Colecovision when i was like... 5? 6? 

Epic moment... I need one!!!

To reiterate all that has already been said.

A fabulously wonderful event. Hosts - Impeccable. Venue - Outstanding. Company - exquisite.

Until the next.
