SC3 / Arcade party Sept 26th in SoCal


Recommended Posts

The next meeting of the Southern California Classic Collectors is scheduled for September 26, 2009. The schedule will be the same as prior meetings: the party will last from 6:00 p.m. until "sometime after midnight" at the normal location: Steve Hertz's place in Claremont. We hope to see you there!


We don't yet have many announcements ready regarding specific attractions at the event, but you can expect your favorites: MANY arcade games, console games galore, a killer Rock Band setup, and all the rest. This event will feature the debut of two games we are very excited about: Rock Band 2 and The Beatles: Rock Band! Watch this space for details as they become available!


We have launched a new registration (RSVP) system for SC3 events. The RSVP system for the previous event was somewhat confusing, so we have ditched that in favor of a new, easy-to-use registration form. When you want to register, just head over to the form, provide your name and contact information, and press Submit. If your registration is accepted, you will be informed via email. Simple! We also encourage you to join the SC3 Forum to keep up-to-date on the latest announcements.


As always, registration for this SC3 event is FREE -- but we MUST have your prior registration to ensure an accurate headcount. Space is limited, and we need to know who's coming! And please remember: since SC3 does not charge admission, we rely on your donations to cover our operating expenses and electric bill (which is always rather high for some reason). The suggested donation is $10 per adult attendee. Thank you very much for your continued donations -- we wouldn't be here without them!


Highlights from the Last SC3 Meeting


April's meeting was by far the most successful event in SC3's 10-year history. Over 140 attendees made the trek to Claremont, where they got to experience over 600 Rock Band songs, rare arcade games including The Act, the ChaseTheChuckwagon.com raffle of vintage console goodness, game trading, movies, pizza, Rickey's famous hot sauce (courtesy of Pac-Man champ Billy Mitchell) and much, much more! With a little help from our new friends and donors, September's meet will be just as good, if not better!


Who Are We, Exactly?


If you aren't familiar with SC3, we're just a friendly group of videogame enthusiasts who like nothing better than to get together to talk, trade, and play games. We've got a soft spot for games from the "classic" days of the early 1980s, but we love games of all eras, from Pong to PlayStation 3. If you love videogames, you're welcome to attend!


SC3 has made a point of keeping our meetings relaxed and informal, but the atmosphere will include some beer drinking and there may be some R-rated game content. This is an adult get-together where supervised minors will be accepted. Parents should take this into account and please let us know if you have questions.

Bumpidy Bump Bump!! SC3 now only in a month! ;-)


It's almost here and we got lots of things planned for it. Lots of goodies coming our way to SC3 including more raffles from our man Mike Kennedy of Chase The Chuck Wagon auction site. Mike brought over a large amount of loot to raffle at the last SC3 and he will be bringing more goods to raffle on Sept 26th. It's going to be good!!


More = better.... we will have even MORE arcade games to play at SC3. Thats right!! We are pushing the limit of my circuit breakers and we will have plenty of more arcade games to be played some of which that have not yet been to previous SC3 parties. There will be lots of rare titles along with some of the more recognizable ones. What could they be?!?!?!?!?!


More info as we get closer to Sept 26th. Dont forget to RSVP ASAP

The next time you want to go for a world record, would you want to be in the corner like you were, or would you like to be more in the center? We're wondering about that.

I guess I was good where I was at. It maybe awhile before I go for another world record. I like to hang out and enjoy the festivities. If I go for another world record I will try to make it a record that will garner more interest.
