Dutch Pinball will be attending UKPinfest 2020 with a new production TBL machine. Talk/Q&A with Barry Driessen on Saturday. Massive thanks to Jonathan Joosten and Ad Jonker for helping to arrange this!

I was already planning on attending on the Saturday but this just made the trip even more worth it, game looks amazing but I’ve never had the chance to play one. Well done Phil for adding this to the weekend.

Can anyone offer advice on the best way to get to Daventry?

Another option is a £15-£20 Uber from Rugby station. 20-30 mins from Rugby and fast trains from London (Euston).

If he decided to fly into Heathrow... There is a National Express service from Heathrow to Banbury - again an Uber/Taxi from there could be done.

It cost me £20 each way in a taxi last year

Not that anyone cares but in my view I think this is terrible. These guys owe pinheads thousands of pounds and have made a machine with stolen money. Barry should be sorting that out before spending more of their money on a trip to the UK.

If he's opening himself for a Q&A - he won't enjoy the Qs unless its demonstratebly on the way to being sorted by then.

They have until August.

Indeed Nick but if I was an EA in the UK and didn’t have my game I’d be working to figure out how I get ready to seize that game!

Contract signed and we're live!

The hotel is now taking room bookings. Prices have gone up slightly this year. I begged and pleaded and even offered @Poibug as a waiter for the weekend but I just couldn't budge them on room prices.

Thursday through to Sunday night are £62 single B&B, £72 double/twin B&B

Remember, you need to speak to the hotel direct during office hours and ensure you're speaking to either Hollie or Patrick and quote UKPinfest. The telelphone number is 01327 307000
Are you bringing more bits this year Chris? I need to buy more bits to give away :p

Sorry for the late reply. Been mopping up a flooded kitchen at my Mother's house. It's a right mess. Taken tomorrow off work to sort it out. Typically, there's a viewing for the sale of it at 1pm tomorrow afternoon!
