Welcome!

> In GRcade we're working to build a retro gaming community
> The Retro Club Weekender is our new idea to enable GRcadians to share photos of their retro gaming gear and chat about the stuff
> Feel free to join in every weekend by posting your pics and commenting on those that others have made

The first Weekender will start this Friday, 14 April! Yep, the phrase "weekend" is flexible and will normally be Friday through Monday and this will be the focal point of the thread... but, hey, you can post a new pic any time you want to :-).

Share your retro gear, share the retro love... slam in that game pak and join in :toot: .

Ive been meaning to consolidate all my retro stuff for a while now, a lot of my older games are still in my parents house. This might give me the kick up the arse I need to pick it up and bring it to my house to get it all in one place.

What would really really help, is if you put an idiot's guide on how to post an image in this forum in the 1st Post.

I always forget...and can then never post a picture!

Thanks for sharing the details, Errkal!

It's great to see that we have a few folk already showing interest in this. Just in case anyone is wondering, you don't need to post photos of a collection of Stadium Events sealed copies or anything like that; anything retro that you like is valid... even better if you can jot down a few words about it.

It's gonna be all about the fun of sharing bits from your collection and getting the chat flowing :toot: .

I'll hold back on my most recent purchase until Friday then. I've just snapped a couple of pictures and was all ready to post them and then I saw this.

Just one more day until our first Weekender launches! It seems that many of you are already getting excited about posting your first pic :toot: .

Just to remind folk, you don't have to post on Friday... Saturday, Sunday or Monday are just as cool. As long as we get to share photos of our retro gear and chat about it, it's all good :) .

Yeah, of course, go ahead, Drummy... you could launch the new show today! It'll help get people thinking about what they want to post.

One suggestion I'll make to folk is not to post "everything you have" on the first weekend. Save stuff so that we can have a few things posted every weekend... it'll help keep the enthusiasm running for a good while!

My Retro gear is all packed away in tubs, and quite difficult to access...

...Plus I have no idea of which item to take a photo of :fp:

I might post some pics of my Master System, its a bit grubby and covered in stickers (I was an idiot as a kid) but I would never get rid of it.

I might see about getting a couple of replacement pads for it even though I can't actually play on it.

That'd be great, Ironhide - I'm a big fan of the Master System!

Might it be a good idea to set up a GR Instagram account for stuff like this? Could be a way to spread the word of the forum across the web. Each weekend pick the best pic of the bunch from here and post it on there with a link to the thread. Could be used for other stuff too.
