A quick update to let you know what has been happening:
As some of you may have heard, the club has agreed to expand into an adjoining unit. We are currently working on it and hope to increase our total number of machines to around 60!
Once finished, we will hold a big bash to show off the extra space. Stay tuned....
Visited on Saturday. Have missed it so much!
I have a little feedback if that's OK...
The rules regarding leaving one machine gap either aren't clear or people are ignoring it, especially in the back room. Regularly five people playing all in a row sometimes six.
Having arguably some of the most popular pins in a row exacerbated this,
Cftbl, JP2, AFM, MM all sat next to each other made it difficult to play them. JP2 had someone playing on it nearly the entire time the club was open which made it near impossible to get onto CFTBL or AFM, unless you broke the rules.
At one point JP2 was free but someone was playing Creech, so i thought I'd hang about, play TZ...then stood waiting.. They finished on creech and then moved straight onto JP2.
Yes, I know I could have said something to them but it's not always that easy.
That bank of machines were always busy but a lot of the other areas (except the back room) had barely anyone playing
It made it near impossible to play any of those pins unless you broke the rules yourself, or waited til near closing time when the club was emptier.
I understand it's difficult to enforce rules and there will always be those who try their luck. Maybe the rules regarding leaving a space should be more obvious and placed around the club rather than just on the entry desk?
Maybe a good idea would be to place the popular pins away from each other?
Still had a great day and hope to be back in a couple weeks
David - first thanks for supporting us in ensuring we keep to the governments guidelines And don’t get fined £10,000
I regularly asked folks not to do that if you’d mentioned it to me I would have spoken to them again.
The whole point of having them at the desk is so people would read them as they came in and I made sure they everybody did - to avoid “oh I didn’t see them” which believe it or not is the sort of teenage excuse we have to deal with. On Thursday we had many folks not wearing their mask also we’re I had to intervene and nearly had to ask someone to leave.
Unfortunately we do have a lot of great games and not enough space and some games won’t fit in the back area other than sterns - I think in future we will simply have to have turn of what games are on and off and rotate what is available to play.
I just wish people were no so ignorant to have to make us police the rules - it’s not what we as founders want to do either unsurprisingly.
appreciate the feedback David.
Thanks for the feedback David, shuffling the line up around is an easy way to try and reduce the issue.
Instead of this, maybe give each player a couple of sheets highlighting this rule to place on the two machines either side of the one they are playing. They grab them and take them with them when they are finished and moving to the next game.I think in future we will simply have to have turn of what games are on and off and rotate what is available to play.

If someone picks it up and starts a game anyway they're clearly taking the p!ss and don't give a sh!t about the rules
I put monster bash in the house so that should keep her happy for a while (Until that comes to the club too). If anyone has a Flinstones they want to sell/trade, that would keep her happy at home!Oh no!
Will it be gone in in two weekends time?
Also, is the RS at the club the same one as before?
