Arc-Aid (Part 3) - 13th and 14th June 2015
3rd Time Lucky? So after previous great weekends of arcade machine tech talk, gaming and retro fun, we'll be opening our doors once again for another weekend meet-up and knowledge exchange.
'Arc-Aid: Cambridge’ is being held at the Cambridge Computer Museum on Saturday 13th June (and following on to the Sunday 14th for those wishing to continue!) with the aim of bringing together members of the online arcade community to repair and restore some of the museum’s arcade machines.
Engineers from across the country will gather to open arcade cabinets, extract circuit boards, solder, prod and probe until the dulcet tones of arcade machines springing back to life fill the museum (waka-waka-waka!). Arcade-centric talks will be held throughout the day and there’ll also be a special PCB workshop session for arcade community members. This will offer opportunities for practical knowledge exchange and members are invited to bring their own faulty games. Visitors to the museum will be able to view restoration work in progress and experience a selection of awesome arcade and pinball machines!
We had some successes at the last events and we're hoping to continue for the next one!
Game over?! Insert coin to continue!
Ticket prices are for the entire weekend. Keep your booking receipt for entry on both days.
If you want to stay the night, there is a travelodge just a few minutes walk away.
Remember - All proceeds go to support our Computing Museum!
