(Australia) The Annual Retrobrad Retro Games Convention

Wanted to let you Australian guys know about the The Annual Retrobrad Retro Games Convention being held in November in Ballarat, Victoria.

I will be going and I hope to see you guys there, details as follow:

It will be held in the Studio Theatre room at the University of Ballarat, Victoria (Australia)

seeing that it will be summer, i have made sure that we have a nice airconditioned room (so things dont get too hot and sweaty...)

heres a pic of the venue (sorry its the only one i have for now...)

so what can you expect???


:!: Tables upon tables setup with all your favourite retro systems and consoles (nintendo, sega, atari, colecovision, intellivision, commodore, amiga etc...)
:!: A range of Arcade cabinets (courtesy of my good friend grapes of gorf!!!)
:!: lucky door prizes
:!: Head to head competitions on the BIG SCREEN! (with prizes!)
:!: All your favourite music hits from the 70's 80's and 90's!!!
:!: All sorts of retro gaming information
:!: A buy, sell and swap supermarket (so make sure you bring some of your own games to swap with fellow collectors...)
:!: And loads more, basically its a whole day full of retro gaming goodness with fellow retro gaming fanatics!

So whats this event going to cost you???
It's only $20 per ticket! (which are limited...)

The tickets will cover the cost of the venue hire and whatever we have left over will be put back into prizes for you guys! (im not looking to make money for myself from this event, but rather just want the event itself to take place.)

So all that being said, tickets will be for sale by emailing me and i will also be listing a whole heap of them on ebay and on other retro gaming forums around the place.

tickets will be emailed and you will need to print them out and present it at the door on the day. each ticket will have its own unique code, and the name of the purchaser printed on it (so you will also need some id on the day) this is due to the fact that there are limited tickets (around the 50 mark) and also to prevent people trying to copy them etc...

alright, feel free to use this forum to discuss the upcoming event, and also if you have any suggestions about the event.

PS i will be finding out accomodation in the area this week too (for those that need to travel)

Here is a link to the retrobrad forum discussing the event:
