Figured I'd throw this up for anyone interested.
This weekend at Richie Knucklez Arcade in Flemington, NJ is a HUGE classic arcade event. 3 people are going head to head to head on 3 Tron machines for the WR in a "last man standing" format. In addition there will be other marathon and WR attempts made throughout the weekend. The general public can come watch or play any non-reserved games this weekend. Cost is $15 I believe. The arcade will be open from noon on Saturday for at least 24 straight hours, or longer if there are any ongoing marathons. I've heard of possible Disney presence? Also, Guinness Book of WR's reps will be on hand to verify scores to go into the next edition of the Video Game Book of WR's.

Also, those not able to make it can watch multiple streaming cameras through the weekend. Most likely at http://www.aurcade.com
I'll be wearing my FL shirt and pin-covered Encom lanyard on Saturday, trying for the Moon Patrol WR. Stop by and say hi.
