If I’m treading on anyones toes please let me know but to my knowledge there arent any meetups in Essex? I was hoping to form a bit more of a local commuity and I’m thinking of hosting a mini competition at my flat in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex within the next few months (probably on a Sunday) games available would be Cirqus Voltaire, Pinball Magic, Junkyard, Jackbot, Stargate and possibly an EM if i can make the space to get one out of storage.

Was just looking to gauge interest and if a decent amount of people are interested we can figure out what kind of competition to run. Other than that I’m always open for people to pop round and have a few flips!

As an Essex Native, count me in sounds like a excellent idea! However, I must add I am pretty bad at Pinball..........

Keep me posted!

Cheers!

Quick update, I’m thinking of hosting this on Sunday 2nd of December. If anyone has any ideas on what sort of tournament to run let me know as i have no experience running tourneys. If this date works out good for most i’ll create an event.

You could sign up to https://matchplay.events/ and create your tournament from there. I'd suggest Swiss style head to head for x number of hours.

Gutted, but I am busy that day! Rubbish for you guys, as someone else will have to finish bottom now!

Please keep me updated on other dates, as I really wanted to attend!

Cheers!

I'm in South Woodford so would be keen. @Andypc I didn't realise you were so close by either. Have you checked out the Metallica @ the Duke in Walthamstow?

I’m within an hour of you guys too so would potentially be up for going if you have the space. January is pretty clear at the moment apart from one weekend at end of the month to go to Budapest. If you want to turn it into a semi regular meet up you could quite easily convince me to host one in the future if someone runs the tournament. It would be good to meet some people that are semi local

@Jmac you're more than welcome to come mate. If it's a success I'll try to host every 6 months or so. Could probably comfortably fit 15 maybe 20 people so should be plenty of room
