Stainy has now had the shirt money transfered to him so that should be okay. I have also purchased the winners trophy. It is a wooden shield, about a foot high, with 11 small gold shields on it. At the top is a ribbon that reads 'KickOff The Gathering' and in the centre is an emblem that reads World Champion. When the winner takes the trophy he then must get his name and the year insribed in one of the shields and then return to defend his trophy the following year. I have name tag holders here also, so i've just gotta print out some name tags. I'll pay a visit to the hotel tomorrow to make sure everything is as it should be and to sort out rooms for the friday and sunday.
As long as we an get enough tv modulators now we should be sorted. Phew!

Well done with the Trophy Steve and other stuff. Perhaps you could check whether the Hotel has a Projector and a Screen so we can all watch the Semis and Final. I may be able to get a Projector if needed, but there's not way I can bring a Screen as well <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

Mark,

I have just managed to borrow a projector and a screen from my boss for The Gathering so I am taking it home tonight to make sure I can connect my Amiga to it.

Hurray!!

I think we can bring along some tv-modulators. I know some people who have them, I probably can borrow them. We can also bring along some arcade joysticks (the real classic ones). I believe I've got 10 of those, I think about 4 of them work..

Good man James, saves me asking my Boss (who I don't like <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> ). How about a Video for recording said games. In theory we could get them onto Video or AVI. I can't do that tho. as I only have a Firewire card for my Digital Camcorder <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

Latest Gathering news...... A onerted effort is being made at the moment to get the press involved down at the Gathering, even going as far as trying to get the newspapers involved!! No that does not mean we'll get the Star girls down there...maybe the Sport though <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> I expect to have some juice press related stuff to pass on next week. Also i'm trying to sort out a very special loser trophy..should be fairly humiliating for the recipient.

Loser's trophy? <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">
And what should it be? A sword maybe, so that the loser can perform harakiri like a samurai? <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">
