How wrong can you be.

My wife is a District Commissioner in the Girl Guiding movement (Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, age ranging from 5 to 14) and she organised a 'fun' evening for her District last night. I took along two of my machines, win a fruit polo and Bryans 10 cup, I was totally amazed at the reaction of the youngsters and my machines were continually played all the evening, without a break. They were crowded around the machines and not just for curiosity, they all wanted to play them. (Bryans 10 cup being the most popular)

I firmly believe that the interest is there, but as for collecting and spending the sort of money the machines command, that is another thing
