..retroAndy has come up with another superb idea , we are going to have an 80's corner !

To compliment the Sinclair C5's we are going to display some other items from the same era - Sinclair Computers, hand held games etc

Andy has quite a selection , but other bits and pieces would be welcome so check out your spare rooms,loft etc and see if theres anything left over from your misspent youth that could be put on display

Hi guys just picked up 'revenge of the C5' game for the 48K spectrum - if anyone has a working 48k console we could set up the game for the kids to play on during the day- if not I'll try and get hold of one.

Top banana. Thanks guys , it all helps create an impressive event.

I'll make some more enquiries about PAT testing the equipment, last time I spoke to Brooklands the answer was all electrical equipment we intend to use would need to be PAT tested by Brooklands own engineer. Not something that cant be overcome, but it would be easier if they accepted PAT testing by other suitably qualified engineers.

** update on the PAT testing ******


As we suspected, all electrical appliances that we want to plug in at Brooklands must be PAT tested prior to the event.

The good news is that the PAT testing can be done by any properly authorised tester , the appliance just needs to have a valid sticker on it at the event.

So if you have a certified tester locally , you can use them  ;) 

But if it doesn't have the relevant sticker on the day, it can't be used - which seems fair enough (insurance requirement I expect).
